SOCIAL Democratic Liberal Party leader Sitiveni Rabuka said he was proud to be present at the swearing in ceremony of President Jioji Konrote on Monday.

He said he was happy to have been invited to the event that also had the presence of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

While speaking at a SODELPA campaign meeting in Vatuwaqa, Suva last night, Mr Rabuka said he was proud of where Mr Konrote and Mr Bainimarama have reached in their career.

He told supporters at the meeting that during the swearing in ceremony he felt a sense of pride for the two Government officials because they worked under his leadership in the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

“As parents we take pride in those who are coming up and also take in pride in what those before us have done,” Mr Rabuka said.
