An official farewell ceremony is expected to be held in Nuku’alofa tomorrow to say goodbye to Cato.

Cato was appointed to the post since 2012 replacing British judge Robert Shuster whose tenure has ended.

Mr Cato, a former Rhodes scholar, has taught and practiced law in New Zealand and Australia for 30 years.

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.
