Maikeli Ratuove has dedicated his Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies, to his single mum.

Mr Ratuove, 24, said mother, Asenaca Loloma, deserved all the recognition for his achievement.

After his father died in 2007, Ms Loloma singled handedly raised six children, including Mr Ratuove.

An emotional Ms Loloma said: “My son is the first person in the family to graduate, so it’s a very proud moment for all of us and I just thank God for all he has done.

“Maikeli will be a good role model to his younger siblings and help support the family now.”

The family travelled from Toga Village in Rewa to be part of the graduation ceremony.

It will be double celebrations for the family tomorrow.

Grandmother, Adi Asenaca Naivadrakula turns 79.

She would not have wished for a better birthday gift than what she got yesterday.

It was early but the perfect present, she said.

She was proud to watch her grandson, Mr Ratuove, graduate.

Adi Asenaca said: “I will be turning 79 this Sunday and for me to live to see my grandson graduate today is the best gift ever.”
