Keen to reach 100

Luke Rawalai
Wednesday, January 22, 2014

SHE was told in a vision back in her young days that "ko na raica (you will witness it)" and she is adamant that she will reach her 100th birthday this year without any hassle.

Nakorotubu native Akeneta Sovaniasikula celebrated her 99th birthday on August 15 last year in Batinikama Village where she was married.

Ms Sovaniasikula can still remember well when she was taken in a vision back in her young days.

"Being an ardent Catholic believer I went to church one day and heard the preacher tell us about how God was coming back and how the stars of the heaven would fall during his coming," she said.

"I told myself this was impossible and that this is another myth until I had this vision. I had gone to sleep and dreamt that I was being taken by a tall man in white clothes to a cliff who said to me 'Akeneta muri au mai (follow me Akeneta)', and as he led me to the cliff I was surprised that the man was behind me and that we were facing each other on top of the cliff.

"I asked him what is this about and he told me to wait and see."

Ms Sovaniasikula said while she was on the cliff a star fell from the heavens burning everything on earth.

"This happened three times until I felt the warmth of the fire that these three stars has caused but after a while I saw the same man again who had led me to the cliff and motioned me to follow him saying 'Ko na raica (you will witness it)'."
