Keys to long life

Repeka Nasiko
Tuesday, June 03, 2014

AT the age of 76, Varayame Natuituba firmly believes that constant exercise and eating the right type of food is the key to a longer and healthier life.

While touring the highlands of the Ra Province, a team from this newspaper came across Mr Natuituba on the outskirts of Saioko Village, Nakorotubu.

Mr Natuituba caught the eye of our reporters as he carried a large sack of yams while returning from his farm, located four kilometres away from the village.

It was a rough and steep track and yet he hauled the heavy load easily with the help of a stick.

"I do this every day. It's something that I have to do in order to stay fit."

He said he made the three to four-hour track to his farm six days a week in an effort to stay healthy.

"People have health problems because they are not exercising enough and not eating the right food."
