“We will get them to the gallery first and then go to Ratu Sukuna Memorial School in the leadership village. We had initially wanted to take them to Borron House, but we cannot as Borron House needs to be repaired first as we speak.”

The Borron house was known to be one of the places where the late statesman Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna lived a few years prior to his passing and also the place where his body was laid in state before his burial in Lakeba.
