TALKS on the succession to the chiefly Ka Levu title will be held after the Nadroga/Navosa provincial meeting this Friday.

Spokesman Ratu Tevita Makutu said there had not been much dialogue on the matter since the completion of the 100-night rites for the late Ratu Sakiusa Makutu.

"We are, at the moment, preparing for the bose ni yasana (provincial council meeting) this week, and we will revisit that subject after the meeting," he said.

Na Ka Levu Ratu Sakiusa Makutu died on November 27, 2013, after a short illness. He was 66.

He was laid to rest at the chiefly burial ground at Cuvu Village on December 5, 2013.

Meanwhile, talks are also continuing on the successor to the Tui Tavua title. Family members say discussions on the matter are still continuing with nothing confirmed so far.
