Update: 6:38PM METHODIST Church followers in the country have been asked to wear either white or black and white during the next week as they prepare to farewell their late president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu who passed away past Tuesday.

In a statement, church general secretary Rev Tevita Banivanua said following discussions with the family and church leaders, all members of the Methodist Church were being asked to wear the attire from Monday 17 to Friday 21.

He said this was a form of solidarity with the bereaved family and a show of unity for the Methodist community.

Rev Tuikilakila will be laid to rest on February 20 at Davuilevu following a funeral service at the Centenary Church in Suva.
