New position

Jone Kalouniviti
Thursday, March 13, 2014

FORMER assistant roko for Tailevu Joji Banuve is the new Roko tui Colo.

Mr Banuve, who hails from Navolau Village in Ra, will preside over matters pertaining to the uppermost districts in the Navosa, Naitasiri and Ba provinces.

These areas previously fell under the jurisdiction of the Nadroga Provincial Council.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said previously boundaries in the interior overlapped the three provinces of Navosa, Naitasiri and Ba.

He said the change was aimed at improving the delivery of service in the hinterlands.

Mr Banuve will look after the district of Savatu in Ba, Nadrau and Navatusila in Navosa, and Naboubuco in Naitasiri.

These districts are home to 22 villages.

Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Naqasenivanua was the district officer for Nadarivatu when the position was first mooted in 2013.

He said the change would help streamline the work processes up in the interior of Viti Levu.

"When meetings were called before or when issues needed attending, the roko tui Naitasiri had to run all the way up to the interior and likewise, the roko tui Nadroga or the roko tui Ba," said Mr Naqasenivanua.

Cdr Cawaki said Mr Banuve would be based at the Nadarivatu district office where he would work alongside district officer Osea Ravukivuki.
