The grieving family of the 14-year-old girl who was raped and murdered at Loloma Beach in Pacific Harbour plan to leave the area.

Mere Ailevu’s family will be relocating to her paternal family’s place in Savusavu when the school year ends.

Mere’s body was discovered at the beach last Monday afternoon.

Her grieving mother, Sili Keni yesterday confirmed that the family was just waiting for this school year to end and they would be moving.

The family is currently residing at Vunibuabua Settlement in Pacific Harbour, not far away from where Mere’s body was found.

They have been living there for the past 14 years.

“I was brought up here and for that long this is the first time this has ever happened. I’ve always told my husband that I cannot leave this place, but after what happened, I fear for the safety of our children and our family,” Mrs Keni said.

“We do not feel safe here any longer.”

Mere’s father, Kameli Vosamacedru said: “Mere’s namesake calls us every day to check on us and they have also bought a land for us to go and live on. They will also be building our house as well.”
