Saturday, May 24, 2014

THE vanua of Tavua has agreed that Ratu Nacanieli Queque be installed as the Tui Tavua.

Tavua district representative Apisalome Ulusova said installing Ratu Nacanieli as Tui Tavua would be made official later this year. Ratu Nacanieli succeedes his brother, Ratu Jale Waisale Ratu.

"Ratu Nacanieli is in the United States at the moment and we are awaiting his arrival and will accord him all traditional protocols required with appointing a new Tui Tavua," he said.

"For this role, there is no acting position and at the end of the day, the vanua has the final say on who will take up the position."

Meanwhile, the position of Na Kalevu of Nadroga is yet to be determined.

Nadroga Navosa Provincial Council roko tui Viliame Burenivalu confirmed a successor to the role of Na Kalevu — left vacant by the death of Ratu Sakiusa Makutu — has not been finalised.

"We haven't received any word from the family of the late Na Kalevu," he said.

"Right now, we will wait for his family in Naqeledamu to call a meeting to discuss who will take the late Ratu's place."

He added the council was yet to be informed on when the chiefly family will call the meeting.
