Melodic sounds of Christmas carols filled the corridors of Parliament with many items sung by members of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence yesterday.

Led by chairperson Netani Rika, the choir included Government Member of Parliament Jilila Kumar, Opposition Members Mosese Bulitavu and Aseri Radrodro and Parliament staff members.

Speaker of Parliament Dr Jiko Luveni, who was the guest, commended the choir for the grand tunes.

Ms Kumar said the celebration of Christmas was a joyous occasion which signified the birth of God’s son; Jesus, who lived among people and laid down His life for the people.

To Dr Luveni she said: “This is something that we will always remember. Thank you so much for your foresight and understanding for allowing us to form this Christmas carol choir.

“It is our prayer that the Lord will continue to shower his blessings on you and your family.”

This year marks the second Christmas programme organised by Parliament staff members.
