The ceremony began with a service conducted by Reverend Savelio Ah Colt from the Congregational Christian Church of Samoa at Malie.

New chief, Fa’amausili Ututau Pasese said yesterday’s ceremony gave the new matai the blessing to serve the family.

"It's a privilege for me and all the other members as well to have these particular titles," he said.  "All I can say is that we are thankful to God for the opportunity because without him, nothing is possible…

“I want to try my best to serve our family, the village as well as the church in any way we can.

I'm sure my fellow matai will be keen to do the same." The formalities were followed by a huge family feast enjoyed by everyone.
