THE Fiji Council of Churches said Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu served as president of the Fiji Council of Churches from 2006-2013, a critical era in Fijian history.

FCC president Manumalo Tuinanumea, in a condolence statement, said during Mr Waqairatu's leadership, Fiji experienced tensions in politics, culture and church.

"We are grateful for Reverend Waqairatu's prophetic leadership during this period," he said.

"On behalf of the Fiji Council of Churches, we wish to convey our deepest condolence on the death of Reverend Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu.

"The untimely passing of Reverend Dr Waqairatu is a loss to the Fiji Council of Churches.

"As president of the Fiji Council of Churches, he was firm in regard to the churches' position on politics and he was also instrumental in trying to unite the Fiji Council of Churches and the Assembly of Christian Churches Fellowship.

Mr Tuinanumea said they applauded his commitment to bring about renewal into the Methodist Church in Fiji.
