THE Social Democratic Liberal Party has taken its campaign to the US.

Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa is in the US where she met party supporters on Saturday.

Confirming this in an interview, party director of communications Jese Sikivou said Ro Teimumu was accorded a traditional iTaukei welcome in America.

"Her visit was a private one arranged by the members of the mataqali Valelevu of Rewa. They wanted her to visit the people in USA," Mr Sikivou said.

He said Ro Teimumu's supporters organised a big get together for her after hearing about her planned visit.

"She (Ro Teimumu) delivered a speech at the Flamingo Hotel and also updated the supporters on the developments happening in the country," Mr Sikivou said.

He said Ro Teimumu was also hosted to a private dinner and a fundraising event.

The vocal chief returns to Fiji on Friday, ahead of the opening of SODELPA's Lautoka office on Saturday.
