Lelean students to honour former president

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Update: 12:01PM ABOUT 1500 students of Lelean Memorial School will line the Davuilevu route as a sign of respect for the former Methodist Church in Fiji president Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu.

The students will line both sides of the road as soon as the hearse carrying Mr Waiqairatu's body enters the main entrance at Lelean for his final journey to the Young Peoples Department (YPD) and then to the Davuilevu Theological College, Baker Hall and later to his burial ground.

Church communications secretary Rev James Bhagwan said the community was cleaning up and preparing for the final funeral rituals of the late president.

His wife Joana and the vanua o Moala will await the arrival of his body around 4pm at their home in Pender Street where he will spend the night. 

His funeral service will be held at 10am tomorrow at the Centenary Church before leaving for his final resting place in Davuilevu.
