Father appeals for help

Maciu Malo
Monday, January 13, 2014

A PLEA for assistance has been made by Tongan national and grieving husband and father Mokai Patolo, who is still without a job since the brutal murder of his 33-year-old wife and seven-month-old daughter last December.

Mr Patolo, who lives in Viseisei Village in Lautoka, said although the family was grateful for the piece of land given them by Taukei Sawaieke Ratu Tevita Momoedonu, they did not have money to build a new home.

"I was employed as a bowser attendant until the tragic incident happened," Mr Patolo said.

"Since that day, I haven't been working and I don't have the money to build our new home."

He said at present, he was staying with his sister who had been looking after him since the brutal tragedy.

"Therefore, I am pleading to the people to assist me with the construction of our new home.

"I want my daughters to have a good future and I will also try my best to provide the best support they can get."

The 31-year-old's three daughters who were also attacked during the ordeal are still admitted at the Lautoka Hospital.
