Commodore surprises ferry passengers on his tour

Salaseini Moceiwai
Sunday, February 16, 2014

SOME ferry passengers awaiting the arrival of the MV Spirit of Harmony queued up at the Nabouwalu Jetty got surprised to greet the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

Despite the drizzle, the passengers spent a few minutes to meet and greet Commodore Bainimarama and his family with smiling faces.

A passenger Pita Vuca said it was very humble of Commodore Bainimarama to have spent a minute of his hectic schedule to meet up with ordinary Fijians like him at the jetty.

Among the passengers was Tui Vuya, Ratu Amenatave Rabona who shook hands and shared a light moment with Commodore Bainimarama.

Commodore Bainimarama and his entourage will attend a church service today (Sunday) where the military families will bid him farewell as the head of the RFMF.

Yesterday, Commodore Bainimarama toured Kinnis Allied Industries and Pinto Industries Limited.
