Who is Matawalu?
Matawalu was a Fijian chief. He was the son of Niumataiwalu, first Roko Sau of Lau, and Uma of Nukunuku. He became the fourth Roko Sau, ruler of the Lau Islands, after the death of his brother Rasolo, but never succeeded to the title Tui Nayau. He had been similarly exiled to Nayau like Rasolo by his elder brother Uluilakeba I. When Uluilakeba I was killed by invading Bauan forces, he later lead the counter invading force for his brother Rasolo at the request of the Lakeba people. It is said that he despised the Tongans, his sister-on-law Laufitu's people and their growing influence in Lakeba. On succeeding Rasolo he removed himself to self exile on Bau Island.
