Chiefly title concerns

Luke Rawalai

A Bua chief has raised his concern on the installation of the "Ai Sua Levu" a chiefly title in the village of Nawaido in Bua.

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea claimed the processes followed to install the current title holder was not proper.

"When a chiefly installation takes place the installers inform the Provincial Office who then inform the chiefs within the vanua," he said.

"I am surprised that we were not even informed of this installation and I raise my concern as the secretary of the Bose Vanua o Bua."

The current title-holder is Ratu Filimoni Ralogaivau who was installed in December last year.
