FUNAFUTI, Tuvalu (December 7, 1999 – Tuvalu. TV News)---The Nivaga II has returned from Nauru after picking up Tuvaluan laborers who have finished their contracts with the Nauru Phosphate Corporation.

On its way back, Nivaga II stopped at Nanumaga and Nanumea, then sailed straight to Funafuti due to severe mechanical problems.

Passengers bound for the central islands had to disembark at Funafuti.

The Nivaga II, following repairs, now is returning Motufoua students from Vaitupu to their home island for the Christmas and New Year breaks.

Nivaga II will then sail to Suva to pick up Tuvaluan students planning to return home for the holidays.
