On the 10th of August 2017, the Bua Provincial Council installed the new Roko Tui Bua, Aisake Sivo Nadumu. Mr. Nadumu is a native of Sorokoba in the province of Ba and has been a faithful servant of the iTaukei Affairs Board for the past 2 decades.
Mr. Nadumu began his career as a cadet and has risen through the ranks of the iTaukei Affairs Board, serving as an Assistant Treasurer, Treasurer, Assistant Roko Tui and Senior Assistant Roko Tui before taking up his new appointment.
Mr. Nadumu has extensive experience in working with villages and is well versed on matters concerning the iTaukei.
He hopes that his experience working with other Provincial Council offices in Fiji will assist him in making decisions concerning the welfare of not only those in our iTaukei villages but other Fijians who now call the Bua province their home.
Presiding over this occasion was the Acting Deputy CEO of the iTaukei Affairs Board, Mr. Josefa Toganivalu. The Divisional Superintendent of the Methodist Church in Bua, Reverend Manoa Rakoroi was also present to bless the occasion.
Also present at the occasion were Mr. Nadumu's wife, Titilia and their children.
Mr. Nadumu replaces Mr. Rupeni Kunaturaga who has gone on to take up the post of Roko Tui Namosi.
