Two brothers are contesting the Turaga title in the 2015 Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival in Labasa. They are electrician/comedian Pio Naiqama and his brother; community and church worker Ovini Yasawa Naiqama.

Pio Naiqama

A popular entertainer, Pio Naiqama will most-likely make your day with his bubbly attitude.

The 55-year-old Digicel North administrator is one of the Turaga contestants and his sponsored by Satish Motormart and Variety Shop. He hails from Burenicagi in Naweni Village in the Cakaudrove province, and is married with three children.

Mr Naiqama lists his hobbies as reading, talking and climbing coconut trees at the village.

“I love talking. It’s my gift which I share with people to tell my life story on what I have been through especially when I travelled half way round the world,” he said.

“My topic is on time I believe it’s relevant to this carnival because for us as human beings there is a time to live and a time to die.

“We have a purpose in life and it should not be wasted on useless things such as committing crimes and ending up spending half our lives in prison when it could be spent productively.

“We should value time and manage it wisely.”

Ovini Yasawa Naiqama

Community and church worker Ovini Yasawa Naiqama believes the wages of sin is death and the wages of crimes are imprisonment.

The 56-year-old is the Turaga Samabula Furniture contestant at Carnival at Subrail Park in Labasa.

He is originally from Burenicagi in Naweni Village in the province of Cakaudrove.

He lists his hobbies as singing and reading the bible.

“I will be speaking on the topic of crime and its way, because I believe crime is an act of transgression and wrong doing and above all – sin,” he said.

“I believe all of us commit crimes each day.

“We are not better than those in prison because most of us commit crime each day without being recognised in court.”

He said it was a commission for him to leave his home Burenicagi to advocate on issues and show his talent.

“I will be singing, entertaining the crowd and even my attires will depict it through the colours that show that God cares for us.”

He is the older brother of Turaga Satish Motormart Pio Naiqama.
