Fokotu'u atu 'e he 'Eiki Palēmia ki he 'Ene 'Afio ke hoko 'a Faifekau Tevita Mohenoa Puloka ko e kōvana ia 'o Ha'apai.

Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pōhiva has nominated Rev. Dr. Mohenoa Puloka to become the Ha’apai governor.

Hon. Pōhiva has announced the nomination this morning in a press conference in Nuku’alofa.

His Media Advisor Lōpeti Senituli said Hon. Pōhiva “had also written to His Majesty to appoint Rev Dr. Tevita Tonga Mohenoa Puloka as Governor of Ha’apai with immediate effect.”

The nomination came after Lord Fakatulolo was appointed as governor of Vava’u in February.

As Kaniva News reported, MP Mo’ale Finau, the former governor of Ha’apai announced the end of his tenure last month on Facebook.

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.
