Situated on the banks of the Sigatoka River, the farming community hold this annual pooja to raise funds for charity.

Speaking to devotees at the event, the Fijian Head of Government warned the community to stay away from politicians that promote their agenda along religious and racial lines.

Attended by close to a thousand devotees from nearby farming settlements along Valley Road, Nadi, Lautoka and Navua, PM Bainimarama said differences along racial lines must never define Fiji.

“We must all reject this way of thinking because it wont bring us prosperity , now will it bring us peace,” he added.

Bainimarama requested that if they come across any one trying to divide Fijians , it was their duty not to accept such people in the society.

“I may be here as a Christian, last year our Honorable Attorney General was your invited guest, who is a Muslim. But while we both practise religions different from your own, that doesn’t lessen our appreciation of your faith.

“We are lucky that religion doesn’t form some invisible wall that separates our countrymen and women from one another, that’s simply not the way we do things in Fiji,” Bainimarama.
