Mr Nemani is expected to take up his new role as the Acting Director of Human Resources at the University of the South Pacific (USP), the Fiji Sun was told.

According to the source, his resignation will be published after the commission informs the Office of the Prime Minister.

USP vice-chancellor and president Professor Pal Ahluwalia declined to comment on what he called the internal affairs of the university.
