Andrew Afeaki says:
I wanted to study and come back and help the development of Tonga. My grandfather prayed over me before going to Fiji to school, “go away and study hard so you may become learned, and come back and help your country, your church and your family – in that order.

A question for students of Tonga's social organisation:

- What is an api?
Next, now that this Tonga New Zealand 1950 publication ends, go back to the beginning of the decisionmaker website.


Tavake Afeaki, youngest son of Andrew and Annette Afeaki, was born in New Zealand but grew up on the family api in Tongatapu. Tavake graduated from university in New Zealand and practises law in New Zealand and Tonga. Grandfather Pousima Afeaki had gained his legal qualifications in Tonga and provided local legal services before election to Tonga's Parliament.
