Granny fights crime

Monday, February 03, 2014

THE will to help young people in Caubati is a driving force for Meri Vuniwaqa.

At 63, she believes she still has the energy to work with these young people in combating crime.

Mrs Vuniwaqa was among the 70 youths who were awarded certificates at the Valelevu police bure on Saturday for making Operation Ligavata successful.

The operation was conducted throughout the festive season and involved youths from Caubati.

And as she shared her experience, she said it was all about dedication and commitment to helping those she called her own children.

Her husband died 15 years ago and since then she has helped out in her area, especially on occasions when youths were involved.

"My children are working abroad and I stay alone and this was why I've always wanted to help these youths who I treat as my own children," Mrs Vuniwaqa said.
