The family of Saimoni Nainoca, who was involved in an accident at Ratu Dovi Road on Wednesday night, are praying for his speedy recovery and have forgiven the driver.

Daughter Salome Nainoca, 33, who is diagnosed with breast cancer said: “We don’t want to take revenge or keep a grudge, we have forgiven the driver and pray the Lord gives him peace, all we hope and pray for is the best outcome for our dad.”

He, she said, was a former Agriculture teacher for QVS and various other schools around the country.

“My dad comes to see me every day and stays over during the night to look after me because I am diagnosed with breast cancer and still going through chemotherapy.

“I live in Nadera so that is his normal route every evening as he does his training. So every afternoon he leaves home and walks to Nadera to my place,” Ms Salome said.

Mr Nainoca is in a critical condition in the CWM Hospital.

Salome was in tears when she expressed how much she missed her dad and how much he meant to her and to the community.

His wife Mamao Marseu Nainoca said: “The doctors have done their best but the head injury is very massive and serious but we have not lost hope. We are still praying for him and hoping that he survives.

“My husband is a family-man, kind-hearted and always supports anyone who needs help.”

She said: “Just recently he got two students from Vanuatu and we are their guardians here in Fiji till they finish their school.”

Meanwhile the driver of the vehicle was questioned and released yesterday by the Police.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said: “We are still waiting for the victim’s medical report and once we get all the reports then we will get the driver in but we have questioned the driver yesterday and have released him.”

Fiji Roads Authority said they are looking into the matter after being questioned as to the lack of street lights in Ratu Dovi Road.
