Ten-year-old Siga Mekemeke Jr made his father and family proud on Monday by returning a wallet containing hundreds of dollars to its owner - a Zimbabwean man and New Zealand-based pastor, Zenas Marurama.
Pastor Zenas who had just been in the country for seven days was elated when he got his wallet back from Siga's father Siga Sr.
The Pentecostal Church pastor was on a tour of the Pacific Islands and apart from the money, some of the documents that he needed to use while travelling was also in his wallet.
"But I found all the money that was there, the exact amount and everything intact. If this was some other country and I dropped this purse..., I think God just blessed me because God is just wonderful."
"I would like to thank the people of Fiji because of people like him; he would not have brought it to light, he could have brought to the shops because there is a lot of money," pastor Zenas said.
The Class Five student of Indira Ghandi Memorial Primary School was very shy when he finally got to meet Mr Zenas, who couldn't thank him enough for his honesty and integrity.
"I could have lost everything you know. I want to thank God very much for this young man, he fears God because otherwise, he could have taken all the money," pastor Zenas says.
Junior was walking along MacGregor Road with his father Siga Senior on Sunday night when they found the wallet.
"My dad thought I was lying when I told him that I had found the wallet that contained some money," Junior says.
When his father took the wallet he explained to his son to put himself in the shoes of the person who had lost the wallet.
"I told him, imagine if this was dad's wallet. The person who had lost this had already planned this money out for his family and they would have to go without food because they had lost all their money,and I was happy that he agreed."
"I also wanted him to set a good example to his class mates and friends too and also I wanted to ensure that Fiji keeps its reputation for looking after its visitors."
"This evening when I went to his home, I was told that he is a pastor and I would like to thank God too because since I work for the President's Office it is one vision for the Office to look after visitors to our country," Siga Senior says.
Pastor Zenas left for Samoa two days after but before the Sigas returned his wallet, he was already dreading a hard trip.
"I have been in Fiji for six days now, I was going back tomorrow, and again without this thing (wallet).
"From here I was going to Samoa and the documents which I have, which I use also to draw money so I was going to be stranded, so that's really God," pastor Zenas said two days before he left.
But for Siga Sr, he clearly wanted to set a good example for his son and he is hopeful his son will go a long way with sound morals after this experience.
"I would like to thank God that we have found the wallet and we just want a clear conscious when we reached home and after a prayer we made up our mind to return the wallet to look for the man who owns that wallet," Siga Sr said.
