Thursday, February 20, 2014

STUDENTS of Methodist schools along the Suva-Nausori corridor will line the streets today as they bid farewell to their president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu.

Church communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the students would act as a guard of honour as the body of the church leader makes its journey to its final resting place.

"All Methodist school students will line the route which the hearse will follow to Nausori," Mr Bhagwan said.

"Nausori schools will line up along Davuilevu Road all the way to Baker Hall.

"It will be a special funeral, not only for the Methodist Church but for every Fijian as we farewell our late president."

Mr Bhagwan said today's funeral service would be led by church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra while former president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca and a few others would officiate at the service.

"We will have a number of eulogies before his body leaves for Baker Hall where a few prayer will be conducted inside the church before his final burial beside the Cabe Ni Lotu memorial by the church."
