Nacanieli Vuloko could not hold back his tears as he spoke of his eight-year-old son Mosese. On Sunday, December 5, Mr Vuloko lost Mosese to an accident along Queens Road in Naboro.

He said this was an accident that should have never happened.

He recalled that seated in the front seat of the vehicle was Mosese and a family member and in the tray were three children and an elderly man.

They were travelling downhill after Naboro Corrections Centre when an oncoming vehicle which was travelling at high speed spun out of control and had hit the Hyundai H100 minitruck he had been driving.

“I saw him (Mosese) hit the windscreen and fall back,” recalled Mr Vuloko.

A farmer and a pastor, Mr Vuloko said none of the family members had slept a wink.

“It is not the accident that does not let us sleep, it is the fact that Mosese is no longer with us,” he said.

“This son of mine was full of energy. When other kids are just sitting, he is outside cutting grass or digging.

“I am going to miss him a lot.”

Mosese’s mother Salote Ratu said it was hard for a parent to lose a child and she had no real words to say how she felt.

The driver of the vehicle that allegedly hit Mr Vuloko’s minitruck, Mohammed Zubaid is admitted at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) in Suva.

Mr Vuloko took a deep breath and sighed with a slight pause and said he was going to forgive the driver of the vehicle.

“The Bible tells us to, and we should forgive him,” he said.

“Our son is in a better place and if we are to be good Christians, we should be able to forgive him.”

The family hopes to give Mosese a burial this Friday.

Meanwhile, along with Mosese, Zunaid Hassan, 24, a passenger in the car that hit Mr Vuloko’s minitruck is also dead.

Police spokesperson Wame Bautolu said the driver was still admitted. The driver and his passenger Zunaid Hussain came to Suva from Nadi for the weekend to attend a wedding.
