Sunday, April 06, 2014

THE people of Kadavu yesterday staged a $5000 celebration to show their support for the new military commander.

Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga and his family were yesterday hosted to lunch by the nine districts of Kadavu.

Speaking on behalf of the vanua of Kadavu, Ratu Seci Nawalowalo of Tavuki said it was an honour for the people of Kadavu to have a man from their province selected ahead of many other capable officers to lead the military.

Speaking in the iTaukei language, Ratu Seci said the people of Kadavu living in Suva had planned the celebration for the past three weeks and what transpired yesterday was more like a thanksgiving function from the people for the military leader.

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga's kinsmen of Muani Village in the district of Ravitaki arrived in Suva two weeks ago to be part of a celebration but stayed on until yesterday for the celebration of the vanua.

Major Isoa Loanakadavu of Muani said the villagers were being billeted at a home in Wainivula and taken care of by Muani villagers living in Suva.
