The acting Principal Accounts Officer, now retired, said it was an honour working at the

Prime Minister’s Office.

“I have spent the last 34years here Office of the Prime Minister. I will miss all the leadership and each and every member. I will miss the way we all used to work together as a team it was just like a big family. I feel like I am leaving someone special, it’s like at home when somebody passes away,” she said.

“I have worked with the four ministers and all were the best. I feel so special being part of Office of the Prime Minister.”

She plans to spend her time with her husband in Sigatoka. She plans to start a small farming business and spend more time with her family.
