Monday, February 17, 2014

IT was an emotional moment for the army wives in the North when Mary Bainimarama, the wife of the departing military commander, approached them after the farewell church service yesterday.

They shed tears after bidding farewell to Mrs Bainimarama as the patron of the army wives.

Labasa Army Wives Association official Usenia Mamao said Mrs Bainimarama was a good leader and mother.

"She was just too good for us. She was always there to support us when we needed her help," she said.

"We are really going to miss her leadership and we wish her well.

"For us here in Labasa, we will continue to show our support to the next head and this is all part of our efforts to support the military.

"We are here as helping hands to our spouses and we are prepared to do whatever the military requests of us."

The Bainimarama family was accorded a traditional ceremony in which the women presented them with garlands, food and handicraft items at the Sukanaivalu Barracks.
