Ratu Sukuna Day Holiday
Tomorrow, Friday, 29 May 2009, will be Ratu Sukuna Day Holiday in Fiji. The holiday is set aside to commemorate Fiji's early statesman, visionary and administrator, Ratu Sir Lalabalavu Vanayaliyali Sukuna. At this stage, it is not clear whether special events are being organised by Government to commemorate the statesman. Today, (Thursday, 28 May 2009) however, the school that is named after the chief, Ratu Sukuna Memorial School, at Nabua, Suva, usually organises special traditional events including traditional competitions, sports and dances to celebrate the day. Events are usually open to anyone to wishes to see what is going on.
