The Soqosoqo Vakamarama president Adi Finau Tabakaucoro described the late Adi Ltia Cakobau as a caring lady who fought for the truth.

In her eulogy, she said the late Bauan chief was also known to be a fierce defender of iTaukei affairs.

“Nicknamed ‘lioness’ she always fought for the truth,” Adi Finau said.

“She hunted, protected and nurtured and did so while serving.  Adi Litia looked after and protected the people she served.”

Speaking for the Kubuna confederacy Ratu Tua’akitau Cokanauto said they had lost a hard-working woman.

He said Adi Litia’s wish to be laid to rest at Raralevu had shown her chiefly blood ties between Bau and Namata.

“I must sincerely thank the Roko Tui Namata for agreeing to her wish,” he said.

“Her funeral has brought together the chiefly houses from Kubuna, Burebasaga and Tovata to Raralevu Village.

Speaking for the Namata district Peni Sokia said Adi Litia was a hard worker and fought for the truth.

He said: “The Kubuna confederacy will miss Adi Litia because of the good work she had done for them and Fiji.

“The Roko Tui Namata Ratu Paula Halaiwalu was honoured to host Adi Litia’s funeral.”

She had asked to be buried beside her mother Adi Veniana Gavoka but the Roko Tui Namata decided for Adi Litia to be buried in the village chiefly burial ground (sautabu).
