2015 year of reconciliation

Repeka Nasiko
Sunday, August 10, 2014

THE year 2015 will be a year of reconciliation for the people of Ra.

This was revealed by Roko Tui Ra Sakiusa Karavaki as villagers end a three-month prayer vigil on today.

He said following the successful three-month ban on alcohol and kava consumption, plans were in place to continue the vigil for another two years.

"The moving of the ceremonial lamp to every village in Ra will end this Sunday.

"We still have a lot of work ahead of us," Mr Karavaki said.

"The plan is for the first year to start as a kind of cleansing for our people and our vanua.

"And in this period, we were also praying over our land and for our prosperity.

"Next year, we want it to be the year of reconciliation. We will again impose the ban and also engage communities with development plans that we would like to introduce."

The ceremonial lamp will reach Ra High School today where a church service will be held to officially mark the end of the ban.
