Update: 6:00PM Families, friends and Nauruan delegates joined His Excellency the President Baron Divavesi Waqa as he visits family from his paternal side in Naloto Village in Verata, Tailevu today.

The Nauru President brought with him gifts to present to his families, village and children during his visit.

Mr Waqas links goes back to his grandfather Ratu Jona Divavesi Waqa who was married to a Nauruan woman in the late 1930s when he worked as a doctor in Nauru.

He said he was happy to be able to visit the village again after a long time and to bring his two grandchildren with him for the first time.

"I am sure that in the future I will be bringing my other grandchildren to visit the village in which my father and grandfather are from and hope that they will keep the strong bond that we have as family," Mr Waqa said.
