IN the wake of the death of the late Reverend Dr Tuikilakila Waqairatu, the Methodist Church is preparing to induct the Divisional Superintendent of the Nabua Division, as the church seeks to regularise its appointments and continue its work, according to Reverend James Bhagwan.

Twenty divisional superintendents are to be inducted into their new appointments, while the divisions that yet to have their superintendents inducted are Rabi, Nabua, Lau,Tavua and Yasawa-i-Ra.

A Divisional Superintendent can only be inducted by a president of the church who has already been inducted as president, in accordance with the church's constitution.

March 16 will feature church interim president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca induct the Divisional Superintendent of the Navua Division. Lomaiviti will be the next division to have its new superintendent inducted, and this will take place on March 23.
