Ratu Epenisa Cakobau, son of the late Vunivalu and Head of the Kubuna Confederacy Ratu Sir George Cakobau, says the easing of tensions between the vanua and the church has been long overdue.

He was speaking at Furnival Park in Toorak, Suva, during Kubuna Day at the Methodist Church’s Golden Jubilee Celebration yesterday.

Ratu Epenisa said: “With the upcoming general elections, this is God’s timing to help mend broken relationships in order to help further development.”

The celebration included traditional presentations, meke and chants.

One of the many present at Furnival Park, Adi Ateca Komai, 68, of Logani, Bau, Tailevu, was overwhelmed with what took place at the celebration.

“I have been part of this Kubuna celebration since 1964 and I am blessed to again be part of this,” she said.

“This signifies the mutual relationship that the vanua shares with the church.”

Hundreds of people attended the celebration.

Meanwhile, the church will celebrate Burebasaga Day today.
