Show of support

DISTRICT representatives of Lau have pledged their support for Social Democratic Liberal Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa.

In a moving traditional ceremony at the Ono-i-Lau House in Nadera, Suva, the 13 district representatives presented a whale's tooth to Ro Teimumu in a show of support following the disqualification of Anare Jale from contesting under the SODELPA banner.

The Vuanirewa clan was represented by Adi Ateca Ganilau, the eldest daughter of Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara, and her sister Adi Kakua.

SODELPA official Savenaca Kamikamica said the occasion renewed traditional acquaintance between the confederacies and their support for each other.

He claimed the people of the Lau had initially agreed that Mr Jale should be their representative in parliament.

However, because of his disqualification, they agreed that they approach Ro Teimumu to represent them, said Mr Kamikamica.

Present yesterday were Ratu Epeli Ganilau, Tui Namosi Ratu Suliano Matanitobua and SODELPA candidates as well as district representatives from Lau.
