Timely visit to village

THE villagers of Sabeto, Nadi said they respected the courtesy visit made by Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa to their village yesterday.

The visit was to enlighten them on the path the party was taking on the road to elections.

Spokesman Sailasa Natalawaqa said the visit was a timely one.

"This visit is an important one for us because we have traditional ties to the people of Rewa and we respect her as she is one of the high chiefs in Fiji," Mr Natalawaqa said.

"At the same time we learn so many new things such as the importance of registration which was explained to us by the party members.

"Many people in the village do not have enough knowledge on voting and this is why it is important for us to be at this kind of visit."

Mr Natalawaqa said while some political parties may have started visiting the villages, the responsibility was with individuals as to who they would cast their vote for.

"This is the time when parties will start coming into our villages for election campaigns.

"We respect them but at the same time, the decisions lie on every individual.

"We thank SODELPA for visiting us and allowing us to meet them and discuss elections issues."

He added Sabeto villagers were ready to cast their votes come the September 17 General Election.
