‘Only the good die so early’

The Southern regional divisional commander, Allan Kundi, paid homage to the late Gulf Police Commander Silas Wayagure in an emotional tribute.

Kundi addressed grieving police personnel and relatives and friends present at Wayagure's funeral this afternoon at the Sione Kami Memorial church.

In his address, Kundi said Wayagure was a steadfast and hardworking officer whom, till his death, worked hard to establish good public and community relations with the police and major stakeholders in and around his provincial command.

Kundi said Wayagure was vigilant in his station inspections around the Gulf province while maintaining a high level of discipline and dedication in dispensing his duties.

Even though he had accommodation issues in his last posts, he never wavered in his duties and made it his responsibility to always maintain his presence in his province of command.

Kundi quoted that "Only the good die so early", reflecting that the police force had lost a good officer.

Wayagure died while in active duty as the Gulf Police Commander in December 2016.
