Support for Satala

Maciu Malo
Monday, July 14, 2014

WALLABIES rugby legend Lote Tuqiri has hailed the move made by former Flying Fijians centre Viliame Satala to join SODELPA for the September election.

The former Australian dual international and his NRL teammate Apisai Koroisau were invited as party's ambassadors during the official opening of the new SODELPA office in Lautoka on Saturday.

He said Satala made a smart move after having served the country on the international rugby field for more than 10 years.

"Vili is a smart person and it's a smart move not only for the party but also for him because he can definitely help his people to have a voice," Tuqiri said.

"He would not have come into this if he didn't think about his people.

"He wanted to do something to benefit his people in the West and it's a good move."

Tuqiri said the main objective of his involvement with the SODELPA was to promote democratic process in the country.

"For me to be here is a bit of support to the party just because the actual process is happening — there is a democratic way that Fiji is heading to."
