Rabuka testifies to the power of belief
S ODELPA leader and a former Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka, says he is certain that the water sourced from Natadradave contains healing properties. This is after he applied the water on a skin infection and visited the healing water site with his wife, Sulueti, on Monday. Pictures of Mr Rabuka, stripped to his waist, and waiting in line for his turn to bathe, were circulated on social media.
He is the first known top political party leader to visit the site in Dawasamu, Tailevu. He joins thousands from here and abroad who have visited the site. Last weekend Mr Rabuka said he had poured what is now commonly called “miracle water” on a skin infection. He said he witnessed how the sore opened up and later healed. “That’s why I decided to go there on Monday,” Mr Rabuka said. “Personally I felt a big change in my body. I saw women being carried up, but were walking back.
“There will be skeptics, but you have to believe in it. If you don’t than it won’t work for you.”
While there is no scientific evidence as to what types of minerals are in the Natadradave water, Mr Rabuka is positive that it contains a mixture of pure minerals.
It is understood that there are plans to activate the QVS Old Boys network to help out in Natadrave. It is one of the two healing water sites. The second site is Delakado Village. The Lautoka and Suva branches will visit the village during the Diwali long weekend to cut grass in the village and plant cassava. This is because most of the Natadradave men are tied up with helping members of the public who are flocking to the water site. They spend more time there than attending to their daily chores like farming and cleaning the village.
The healing water is free. There is no financial return for the villagers. But some people have donated food to the villagers.
