Thirty Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) engineers returned to Rotuma on Wednesday on board the Government vessel, Vunilagi.

RFMF Engineers operations officer Major Sanaila Vatukalulu said the 30 engineers were on Christmas and New Year’s leave here while 10 engineers stayed in Rotuma to look after their equipment.

“They (30 engineers) are going back to continue work at the new Rotuma Hospital,” he said.

The vessel is also carrying some materials for the new hospital.

On Wednesday Fiji Sun contacted the project troop leader in Rotuma, Warrant Officer Class One (WO1) Penaia Balawa, who said they were looking forward to meet their workmates again.

Major Vatukalulu said the RFMF engineers would continue to work on their ongoing projects around the country, most of which were self-funded.  Edited by Naisa Koroi
