FIFTY-FIVE-year-old Abhyas is still struggling to come to terms with the death of his mother.

Naraini Ama died after she was allegedly hit by a bus along Jaduram St in Labasa yesterday.

Mr Abhyas said he last saw his mum early yesterday morning.

“She always used to go to town to do our shopping after picking up her Social Welfare money and I never thought that it would be the last of her,” he said.

Mr Abhyas has been living with his mother for many years now and all they had were each other.

“All my siblings have passed away long time ago and even my father,” he said.

“It was just me and my mother. We have lived together over these years.”

Mr Abhyas said he never married and was dependent so much on his mother.

“I will surely miss her.

“She has always taken care of me and she was the only family I had left, and now she’s no more,” he said.

One of their relatives, Dor Sami, said Ms Ama was a caring mother who took good care of her son.

“She was a good mother and we know her for her ever-smiling face,” he said.

Police confirmed Ms Ama died after it was alleged she was hit by a bus in Labasa Town.

A police forensic team is working on the case and the driver was yet to be interviewed.
