Chief applies to be registered for title

THE Native Lands Commissions says it has received Ratu Filimone Ralogaivau's submission to be registered as the holder of the Ai Sualevu title.

This was confirmed by NLC chairman Ratu Sireli Vananalagi

"However, the submission lacks the confirmation letter of the Roko Tui Bua to confirm that the installation and other proper processes and requirements have been fulfilled," Ratu Sireli said.

"Then only can we register Ratu Filimone as the legal holder of the title."

Ratu Filimone said he had spoken to the Native Lands Commission chairman on Tuesday who had confirmed receiving his submission to be registered as the title holder.

"I had spoken to the NLC chairman and he has confirmed to me that they have received my submission," he said.

"I am the eldest son of Adi Filomena Lewavukivuki, the last holder of the Ai Sualevu title.

"She was the only daughter of Ro Merumeru Ralogaivau, the previous holder of the title who was traditionally installed in 1927."

Ratu Filimone said his mother married Ratu Josefa Ralogaivau, who was the leader of the Muanaicake clan in Daria, Wainunu, where he hails from.

"Now out of the three confederacies in the country, iTaukei children within the Tovata confederacy can be registered under their mother's or father's name in the Vola ni Kawa Bula and this is where I base my claim on.

"The official registration of the title is being processed with the NLC before I will be re-registered to my mother's clan to head the chiefly clan of Solevu in Nawaido."
