Funeral yet to be decided
Mother of hit and run victim will decide when she arrives from US
Family members are waiting for mother of Sairusi Vunakece, 35, to arrive before funeral arrangements are made.
The wife of the victim, Kelera Garitoga, 28, has confirmed this.
“Sai’s mother is currently in the US; once she is we will make arrangements for the funeral to take place,” she said. Mr Vunakece became the lat- est road fatality after becoming victim to a hit and run case at Vuci South Road on Saturday.
Police spokesperson JosaiaWeicavu said they were still questioning the taxi driver who hit the victim and didn’t stop.
“We are still continuing with our investigation since the driver was allegedly under the influence of alcohol, driving the taxi without headlights on and was overspeeding,” he said. ASHNA KUMAR Edited by Manasa Kalouniviti
