Chief of Police Operations, Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu spoke from the heart pleaded with all children to look after their parents at home, no matter what the situation was.

“I will not do this to my mother who is still alive,” ACP Tudravu said while looking at the elderly residents sitting around.

He said he did not know what the situation was but they should not be left at care institutions and forgotten.

ACP Tudravu was with the Police brass band who visited Treasure Home in Nadi, Loloma Home in Sabeto, the Golden Age Home at Natabua in Lautoka and later at Veilomani Boys’ Home in Ba.

He said the initiative for this visit to these homes came through a request from the Divisional Police Commander West Superintendant Abdul Khan.

At the Golden Age Home, ACP Tuidravu stood to speak and in a halting voice told the residents he could see his mother and father’s faces on them.

“Just looking at their faces I saw my mother and my father (deceased),” ACP Tuidravu said.

“We the children have an honourable duty to look after our parents despite the situations they were facing and the difficulties they are in.

“They are still our fathers and mothers. If I cannot look after my mother then that is a sin.

“Our parents have done more than enough to get us where we are and we can’t just bring them and leave them here after all they have done.”
