Written By : Jovilisi Cavuka Nasinu. May I refer to the outburst or claims made by Peni Fatafehi on TV One that his ancestor King Ma’afu of Tonga conquered the whole of Lau.
Please be advised that Ma’afu did conquer Lau but not the people and island of Matuku.
History says they were beaten and eaten by our ancestors. That is one of the reasons that we do not wear the “gafigafi” of “tawala” whenever and whereever there is an occassion in Lau or anywhere in Fiji.
It is my humble request that Mr Fatafehi or the people of Sawana village and Vanuabalavu as a whole apologise to the people of Matuku.
