Manukau, NZ – The members of the Mo'ui Fo'ou 'ia Kalaisi Fellowship Of New Zealand have appointed Rev Metuisela Ngata Puku Fangaloka as general secretary this week during their first annual conference in Manurewa.
It was the first time the fellowship appointed someone to the post since its followers broke away from the Tokaikolo Church in 2013 under the leadership of President Rev Sione Havili Maile.
The appointment of Fangaloka was a result of a secret ballot by fellowship members during the conference.
Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.
Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
