Police Obituary Qiliho, Officers Farewell Loyal 43-year-old

Commissioner of Police, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho and senior officers yesterday led the funeral service to farewell a fellow officer.

Forty-three-year-old Police Constable Tevita Tukana was laid to rest at his village of Yavuna in Nawaka, Nadi.

Constable Tukana served at the Totogo Police Station before he died on January 4, following a short illness.

Described as a loyal officer who was friendly and enjoyable to work with, Constable Tukana’s commitment to his work, despite facing some health issues, was praised by his comrades everywhere he served.

Constable Tukana is survived by his wife Adi Litiana Tukana and their five children.

Meanwhile the Commissioner of Police said he wanted to focus on the health of his officers as he felt many were losing their lives at a very young age.

“The health and well-being of my officers is an area of concern for me because I am losing them at a young age when they are deemed the most productive,” Brigadier-General Qiliho said.

“Not only do we lose a valuable member of our institution, but what is even more difficult to see, is the young families they leave behind and this is why I am prioritising the need to address the health of my officers.”
