For too long villagers of Tubou in Lakeba and its neighbouring villages would travel to Suva just to get a Justices of Peace stamp on their documents.

But this will be a thing of the past after their very own Nemani Gucake was sworn in yesterday among 120 Justice of Peace and 16 Commissioners Of Oath.

The 60-year-old said: “We would spend more than $100 just to travel to Suva to get documents verified by a Justice of Peace.

“I want to thank Government for giving me this new appointment as a Justice of Peace so that I can serve people in the community.”

Mr Gucake has served as a district representative for a number of decades under the Lau Provincial Council.

“I believe this duty comes with commitment, we need to be very vigilant with what we deal with this role and make sure that we are not lured into some form of corruption but instead play our roles as expected from those that appointed us,” Mr Gucake said.

Mr Gucake was accompanied by his two daughters.

Also sworn in was Lau Provincial Council administrator, Eliki Masai.

He had worked within various Government ministries for the last 30 years.

He said the province of Lau was in need of such services.
