CAKAUDROVE paramount chief Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu started his campaign amid overwhelming response by SODELPA supporters.

Ratu Naiqama led a team to the village of Yaroi in Savusavu where they were received by more than 200 villagers.

The meeting was labelled a success and villagers of Yaroit.

Speaking on behalf of the team, Ratu Savenaca Kamikamica said the trip was not only part of a campaign but also to strengthen the bond between the iTaukei people in the three provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata.

"Our intention is for a campaign but it was more than that. The visit by our team led by the Tui Cakau was a blessing because our visit turned out to be a holistic approach," he said.

"We didn't plan for that but the response from the people and the chiefs of the vanua we visited were emotional." He said the people of Dreketi in Macuata were receptive.
