Recruits March In

A 77-year-old grandmother shed tears of joy after hearing that her granddaughter was one of the new Fiji Corrections Service recruits yesterday.

Makelesi Raibe’s granddaughter Seliva Nabeca, 18, was one of 153 Corrections Service new recruits who marched into camp at Korovou in Suva yesterday.

“Most of my children and grandchildren are now working, but this is my first grandchild to be part of the service and words cannot describe how proud I am today,”Ms Raibe said.

“I am usually worried about my children and especially my grandchildren’s survival and future welfare. At this age, being able to witness your grandchildren moving forward is a blessing.

“My advice to her is not to give up and keep her focus on the Lord because He is the source of every good thing,” she said.

Miss Seliva’s mother Veniana Kavoa felt the same way.
“I have four children and Seliva is the second eldest. She completed her Form Seven last year and for her to be part of this training is a proud moment for me,”Mrs Kavoa said.

Fiji Corrections Office chaplain Pastor Senivalati Sokiveta, in his sermon, encouraged the new recruits to remain focused.
“Forget about what you went through. God sees your potential and remember that every good thing comes from Him,” Pastor Sokiveta said.

The recruits will undergo 12 weeks of training at the Naboro Corrections Complex.
