Feeling a spirit of togetherness Merenaisi Tomu and her two children thrived on being part of the Fiji Day celebrations in Navua yesterday.

For the mother of two, who hails from Nabavatu Village in Dreketi, Vanua Levu, it was the first time she took her children to celebrate Fiji Day with other Fijians.

“My husband was stationed in Lakeba, Lau and got transferred to Navua two years ago. This is the first time I’ve brought my children to celebrate Fiji Day,” Ms Tomu said.

“It is a good thing that the Government decided for the Fiji Day to be held in Navua because it was convenient for us.

“The event this year is the best because I get to spend Fiji Day with my children and other happy Fijians.”

Ms Tomu said Fiji Day had meant a lot to her.

“I am very happy because it is a day we celebrate our freedom. It feels good to celebrate Fiji Day with fellow Fijians from all walks of life,” she said.

“Fiji Day celebration brings people together. I got to mingle with Fijians of Indian descent and it makes me feel good that we are all Fijians.

“We Fijians are known for our friendliness and today I can see that. I am happy to be part of the celebration.”
