A Tongan migrant worker returning home after spending months working in a farm in Australia has died.

Fanaafi Misifane, 35, has just arrived and joined his family in Holonga, Tongatapu on Saturday before he died on Sunday morning, various sources close to the deceased said.   

A 25-year-old and a 21-year-old men from Kolonga along with a 21-year-old Holonga man had been arrested and charged with murder.

Police alleged the men assaulted the deceased with metal rods on his head.

The sources alleged the deceased was having a party with cousins before the incident happened.

Misifane worked at the PlantGrowPick company in Emerald, Queensland.

As Kaniva news reported, a Tongan man died in Tasmania last week. Kalolo Kuea died while working in that country’s Seasonal Worker Program.

Kuea’s cause of death has yet to be released.
