Difficult journey

Repeka Nasiko
Friday, September 05, 2014

A HEAVILY pregnant woman due to give birth in two weeks travelled from Suva to her village in Nayavutoka in Ra just so she could vote.

Located along the rough terrains of the Nakorotubu District, Lusiana Salusalu's village is about a two-and-a-half hour's drive from the Kings Highway.

She said she was in Suva awaiting her delivery when she was informed about the pre-polling dates.

"I had to come back because when I heard that the village had pre-polling elections, it was too late for me to change my polling venue," she said.

"My due date is next week Sunday but I still had to come to vote."

Mrs Salusalu said her whole family was taking part in the election.
