SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka has commended families and communities still living in tents for their patience.

This was part of his Fiji Day message as Fiji celebrates its 46th anniversary of independence.

“As we look back at our national history, 142 years since the cession of Fiji, we have endured and recovered after every setback. Whilst still recovering from TC Winston, the nation united in joyous celebration for the historic achievement of our Olympic-champion 7s Team.

“Our win enabled us to transcend boundaries and that same unity of purpose is required to build a strong, united and multicultural Fiji.”

Mr Rabuka also reiterated his call for the potential of sports to be fostered nationally.

“The sky is the limit: rather than being a source of raw talent for tier one rugby nations, Fiji can replicate the success of 7s in the 15s code.

“And I am gratified that efforts are underway to establish a Super 14 team or two to retain our rugby talent in Fiji.

“I also reiterate my call for budgetary support to the Fiji Sports Commission to establish a sports academy that will nurture and train our field and track athletes as well as the men’s and women’s rugby and netball and other sports.” Edited by Rosi Doviverata
