The body of former deputy police commissioner, Taniela Faletau, was laid to rest this afternoon after a service was held at the Centenary Church in Kolomotu’a.
Faletau was 58-years-old when he passed away on Tuesday 10.
He was reportedly collapsed and died.
His former colleagues, family and friends took to social media to express their heartfelt condolence to him.
One of them was Lute Tonga, a co-worker while at Police and is now working in the Solomon Islands paid her tribute to Faletau on Facebook.
She said he remembered Faletau’s last day with Police and on the day he retired when she and another colleague went to say their farewell to him. He told them he did not want them to say goodbye and farewell him because he was not leaving for good as they might still see each other and meet up.
“But today he has gone”, Tonga wrote.
“Goodbye Taniela Faletau, you gone but never forget you”, she added.
