Kubuna allows SODELPA campaigns

SOCIAL Democratic Liberal Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa and party members have been given permission by the vanua of Kubuna to carry out their campaign process in the confederacy.

Bau chief Ratu Epenisa Cakobau, on behalf of the Kubuna confederacy, gave permission and blessings to the party after Ro Teimumu and her team sought approval through a traditional ceremony on Bau Island on Wednesday.

Ro Teimumu said they had gone to the island to seek the blessing and permission from the chiefly household to allow party candidates to do their campaign freely without any difficulty.

"We started last week in the Western Division going to the chiefs of the vanua and we wanted to seek their permission and blessing for the people from their own provinces to campaign for SODELPA," she said.

"The chiefly island of Bau has a long standing relationship with Rewa and we go right back before Fiji was ceded to Great Britain. Once we have that blood and traditional relationships, it is also important for our people to be rest assured that we are coming out to seek their blessing."
