Addendum – Lafetu’s Final Work


Addendum – from Takelesi

In our main story on the late Lafetu Siplei, we made mention of his last project for the church. As I was driving past Namukulu today on Toamana Tours normal Saturday morning island tour, I couldn’t help but see Lafe’s final handiwork.  And so I stopped the mini-bus, mumbled an apology to the folks on the tour and hopped out to take a couple of shots.

Lafetu Sipeli was a man of the church who was involved in many church projects. He did it not because he wanted accolades but because the job needed doing. Lisi Poumale, Jack Willie Lipitoa and Sir Toke Talagi said as much at Lafe’s funeral service.
