Niko Nawaikula says he takes re­spon­si­bil­ity for Ro Tei­mumu Kepa get­ting stranded in Los An­ge­les. The lawyer and SODELPA Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment said it was un­for­tu­nate that the Leader of the Op­po­si­tion and Gone Marama Bale na Roko Tui Dreketi (Paramount chief of Bure­basaga Con­fed­er­acy) was not able to lead a Fiji Na­tive Tribal Congress del­e­ga­tion in New York. A United Na­tions in­dige­nous con­fer­ence was hap­pen­ing there. “As sec­ond in com­mand I take re­spon­si­bil­ity for that glitch and will ad­dress it in the man­ner it de­serve,” Mr Nawaikula said in a Face­book post.

“It did not af­fect how­ever our ef­forts in NY where I took over at the drivers seat in her ab­sence.”
