There will be no New Year street party for the people of Sigatoka this year as the town would be mourning the death of the Ka Levu Paramount Chief of Nadroga, Navosa, Ratu Kinijoji Vosailagi.

This was confirmed by the Sigatoka Town Council chief executive officer Tulsi Ram.

He said the town was in mourning and no street party would be held as a show of respect to the late chief.

Mr Ram said a few people of Sigatoka had also approached him not to hold the street party, saying it was a time to be spiritually connected with family and friends.

However, he added that there would be a few groups of singers who would be in the town and will be singing carols.

Mr Ram said Christmas and New Year’s were a time where people needed to be with their families and friends and to also enjoy the celebrations responsibly.

He said last year’s party was also cancelled for a similar reason.

He advised the public of Sigatoka to enjoy this festive season responsibly and not to drink and drive.
