CHIEFS in the province of Bua have renewed their allegiance to SODELPA at a moving traditional ceremony in Bua Lomanikoro on Vanua Levu yesterday.

Marama Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa and her party received a full iTaukei welcome ceremony where representatives from the nine districts in the province awaited the party's arrival.

The party's spokeswoman Sainiana Radrodro said the chiefs had reaffirmed their support to the party leader Ro Teimumu and they were certain that SODELPA would really look into the interest of the iTaukei and other ethnic groups that have come to call Fiji their home.

Ro Teimumu thanked the chiefs for their support in the last election, which had been a major contributor to the then-Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua's victory.

Marama Roko Tui Dreketi told chiefs SODELPA was ready to continue from where SDL had left off and they were ready to serve the people of this nation.

She also told chiefs their continued support for the general election in September was vital and important to them.

Ro Teimumu said people needed to choose a government that safeguarded the rights and freedoms of individuals across all ethnic lines.

She added SODELPA would ensure all laws enacted in the country were fair and bound everyone irrespective of their race, status rank or religious affiliation.

Ro Teimumu also told chiefs that any government was duty bound to provide development for its people, saying this was derived from taxes that people paid to government.
