Mere Naleba
Sunday, March 09, 2014

MILITARY wives yesterday gathered at the Tu Vasu Hall at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua to farewell Mary Bainimarama, the wife of former commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.

Mrs Bainimarama thanked each woman, child and man present at the ceremony for the support they gave her as well as her husband during his 15 years of service.

"This club has been a pillar of support through some very challenging times for which I will always be grateful and thankful," she said.

Mrs Bainimarama echoed the sentiments shared by military chaplain Major Josevata Tikonatabua to support and love one another and to support their husbands.

"As wives, we need to support and love one another," she said.

"None of us are perfect, we make mistakes, we learn as we grow. Let's have a forgiving heart to learn to accept that we are all different.

"Learn to respect each other, learn to welcome new wives and embrace them to be part of this club."

In addressing the more than 100 wives of soldiers present at QEB, Mrs Bainimarama called on them to embrace and welcome the young and new wives.
