Former vice-president of the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma, Viliame Gonelevu will be laid to rest in Burebasaga Village, Rewa, tomorrow.

This was confirmed by the Church’s president, Reverend Tevita Banivanua yesterday.

Mr Gonelevu died last Saturday.

Reverend Banivanua said Mr Gonelevu was someone who dedicated his life to the works of the Methodist Church in Fiji.

He was also the former finance secretary of the church.

Apart from his role within the church he also served as an interim Minister for Lands in the Qarase-led government.

“Gonelevu was a hardworking member of the church and was also an adviser to the church as he was an engineer and a finance expert,” Reverend Banivanua said.

His involvement within the church work, Reverend Banivanua said, ended in 2011 when he turned 70.

He was also the Scripture Union Fiji chairman from 1995 to 1997.

Reverend Banivanua said he served as vice-president of the Church when Reverend Josateki Koroi the church’s president.
