Rewa High chief Ro Teimumu Kepa has come under attack from some members of her chiefly household for her involvement in politics.
Her Sauturaga and Lomanikoro village elder Sekove Ravoka told Interim Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama and members of government delegation during their visit to Nadoi yesterday that Ro Teimumu Kepa is always focused on political ideas which is irrelevant to development issues which the ordinary people want.
Ravoka said he still remembers the words of the late Roko Tui Dreketi and Ro Teimumu Kepa's father that chiefs should not be involved in politics since their main responsibility is to look after the well being of the people, development and economic issues.
The Lomanikoro village elder also told the Interim Prime Minister that majority of provincial administrators are now listening to the Chairman of the provincial council which should not be the case.
