11th hour message fails to deter voters

By SERAFINA SILAITOGA
Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Update: 1:45PM EVEN the eleventh hour message did not deter cane cutters from walking miles to the nearest polling station to cast their votes.

The labourers in the Dogoru, Savusavuitaqa and Nasealevu areas left their camps early this morning for the polling station.

They braved the hot sun and walked miles because according to Laisenia Lagiloa, the occasion was a historic one for Fiji.

"After eight year and we go back to polling and it is something I will never miss."
