On 17 April 2016 he was chosen by a rival chief council to be the new king of 'Uvea, even though the island had already a king, Tominiko Halagahu, who was installed the previous day. After almost two months of dispute, Kanimoa was officially confirmed by the administrator-superior of French Republic as king on 3 June 2016, and is reigning over the Kingdom ever since.
