Methodists will pay their last respect to the late president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu today.

Church communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said given that the Methodist Church was the largest religious community in Fiji with about a quarter of the population considering themselves Methodists, the funeral would be broadcast live.

Church general secretary Rev Tevita Nawadra will conduct the funeral service.

"Former church presidents will also participate in the service, which is expected to include tributes from the vanua, the local, regional and overseas churches and the family of the late president," Mr Bhagwan said.

Following the funeral service, the cortege will travel along the Kings Rd to Davuilevu where Mr Waqairatu will be laid to rest at Baker Hall.
