Mr Waibuta feels the iTaukei community must strengthen its values.

“We need to strengthen our  iTaukei values, the values that form the strong bond between the family and the communities in which we live,” he said.

“Our Fiji is undergoing rapid changes and, unfortunately, our values are changing and continues to be challenged.

“In as much as we would like to embrace these changes, it is also important to continue to uphold these values as they form the basis of a peaceful and a happy family.”
