The late Adi Sainimili Dyer will be laid to rest this Friday at Naduri Village, Macuata, in Vanua Levu.
The Tui Macuata, Ratu Wiliame Katonivere, said the people of Naduri were preparing for those who will be coming from abroad and outer islands to pay their last respects.
In responding to an article highlighted in the Fiji Times on November 18 stating that late Adi Sainimili Dyer ‘only reached class eight at Saint Mary’s Primary School’, Ratu Wiliame Katonivere said this was not true.
He said the late Adi Sainimili furthered her studies at Nasinu Teachers’ College with the Minister for Education Filipe Bole and other known politicians and teachers in the country.
“She was one of the longest-serving members of the Macuata Provincial Council and was a retired civil servant,” Ratu Wiliame said.
“The late Adi Sainimili served as a Commissioner for the Fiji Girl Guides Association (FGGA) with my late mother, Bale Vaniqi, and she was also privileged to meet the Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Great Britain,” Ratu Wiliame said.
“Whenever she had a chance to sit with my late mother, the only thing they talked about was what could be done to lift the standard of the Fiji Girl Guides; they had a passion on how to help women to grow into successful independent women.”
Adi Senimili was a member of the Great Council of Chiefs, an assistant minister for women and also headed Fiji’s delegation Pacific Festival of Arts.
She was a strong community worker who fought for the rights of grassroots people.
Meanwhile Northern Development Programme manager Waisale Tuidama said it is a big loss for them, as late Adi Sainimili was passionate and committed in developing Vanua Levu.
Mr Tuidama said she was a member since the inception of the programme in 2008, and had been chairperson for the last four years.
Meanwhile; the traditional ireguregu begins today, at Naduri Village.
