Naiserelagi Village in the province of Ra was crowded with officers, men and women of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, Fiji Police Force and Fiji Corrections Service to pay their last respects to the late Warrant Officer Class Two (WO2) Kelevi Namatalevu.

The late WO2 Namatalevu, who passed away after a short illness at the CWM Hospital, was buried in full military tradition at his village in Naiserelagi on Tuesday.

Family and friends also gathered in large numbers to offer their condolences to the bereaved family of the late naval warrant officer.

The late Naval Officer was promoted to Petty Officer in 2001 and became a Warrant Officer Class Two in 2016.

He served with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, was a member of the Ports Security Unit, and in 1994 was selected for the Multinational Force and Observers in Sinai. He was seriously injured in a disastrous accident there.

He will be sadly missed by his comrades at the Naval base in Walu Bay and Togalevu and also his family and friends.
