Tui Ba Proud Of Tuwai

Fijian national 7s halfback Seremaia Tuwai was hosted by the Tui Ba Adi Laite Koroirua at Nailaga Village in Ba on Thursday.

Tuwai’s mother Seruwaia Vunisa hails from Nailaga.

Adi Laite thanked him for his achievement in helping win the gold medal for Fiji at the Rio Olympics last month.

“I am happy and thankful for Tuwai for his achievement in representing Nailaga and Fiji,” Adi Laite said.

“We are proud to see that you are visiting your mother’s village for the first time on a special occasion.”

Tuwai is originally from Buca, Cakaudrove in Vanua Levu but was brought up by his grandfather Tomu Varamoa, 73 who is from Nailaga but lives in Nasinu.

Tuwai was over the moon with the reception.

“I thank the vanua of Nailaga for acknowledging my achievement,”he said.

He later visited Ratu Rusiate Nabuta Memorial School where he encouraged students to be good role models.
