75 percent of the people living in poverty are the iTaukei and this presents a great challenge to our emerging leaders.
Na Marama Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa highlighted this during her opening speech during the Ratu Sukuna Day Celebration Leadership Conference that is underway at Harbour Point Convention Centre in Lami.
Ro Teimumu says while the poverty statistics are a cause for concern, the main suggestion that presents to us all is to educate our leaders because leadership is about service to others.
She says leadership is about service to your neighbours and not about being served.
Ro Teimumu also says if a leadership type would have been applied to the late Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna, it will be the visionary leadership.
The Leadership Conference continues in Lami.
