Tui Labasa Installed  ‘End Of This Month’

Labasa chief Turaga Na Tui Labasa will be installed at the end of the month at Nasekula Village.

Roko Tui Macuata Vilai Basalusalu yesterday confirmed that his office had received a letter from the family confirming that they had chosen 56-year-old Ratu Jone Qomate to be the new Tui Labasa.

When asked about who would carry out the installation, Mr Basalusalu said he was not told about it.

The Fiji Sun has been reliably told that the clan that installed the Tui Macuata would be involved.

When the Tui Macuata Ratu Wiliame Katonivualiku was contacted yesterday about the installation he said he would issue a statement soon.

The chiefly title has been vacant since the late Marama Tui Labasa Adi Salanieta Tuilomaloma Qomate Ritova died in November 2016 at the Labasa Hospital.
