November 12, 2015 6:33 pm
Sarote Konrote never once expected or dreamt of becoming the First Lady.
She now is, after her husband was sworn in as the new President for Fiji.
Her husband’s appointment as the President came as a surprise for her.
However, the First Lady says he has worked hard and deserves the accolade.
She admits, she will have a busy schedule with this new responsibility, something she is ready for.
“It’s ok with me because we are used to receiving and entertaining guests when he was Force Commander in Lebanon, we received and entertained some Prime Minister’s and Head of States and even Bishops and then from there to Canberra.”
For the Rotuman community, Konrote’s swearing-in is significant as he is the first son of Rotuma to hold the President’s post.
They turned up in numbers at the swearing in ceremony at Government House yesterday.
