Rabuka endorses chief

Mere Naleba
Monday, July 07, 2014

THE people from the province of Cakaudrove have been asked to register their names in order to vote in the upcoming general election.

At a SODELPA meeting, the former prime minister Sitiveni Rabuka in addressing the people present at the Fijian Teachers Association hall last week said their chief, the Tui Cakau, Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu, had joined to win the election under the party's banner.

Mr Rabuka asked the people to show their support to the Tui Cakau and to return their province to its glory days.

"Sa da rogoca na dredre ni vanua sa da tu kina, na veika e sa tuvani vei keda me baleta na yavu ni vakavulewa," he said. (We have seen the hardships we are in and what the Constitution has put in place for us)

"Sa matata nai vakamnacala, moni qaqa na veiliutaki, meda veitokoni na dau ni veitokoni." (The explanations are clear, I am wishing the leaders well and I ask all of us the supporters to continue to show our support).

He asked those that were present to instil in their families and children the cultures and traditions that had once joined them together as a village.

Ratu Naiqama also pleaded with people from the province to make the right choices in bringing about changes that will help them and the future generations.
