The funeral of Fiji's former deputy prime minister, Adi Kuini Speed, took place yesterday.
She was 55, when she died at her private estate in Suva after a long battle with cancer over the New Year weekend.
Adi Kuini was a civil servant before she led the Fijian Association Party in a coalition government with the Fiji Labour Party and the PANU parties.
She was also a Navosa high chief and Fijian Affairs minister, and was tipped to be Fiji's first female Prime Minsiter.
Adi Kuini was laid to rest in her chiefly village, in Korolevu.
