Former Member of Parliament for A’ana Aofi No 2, Amiatu Sauvao Sio Va’auli, has passed away. He was 66.
Amiatu died of cancer at the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital, Moto’otua, on Thursday.
His death was confirmed by his widow, Seiafi Va’auli. “He was one of a kind, one in a million,” Mrs Va’auli said about her late husband.
“It’s hard to come to terms with what has happened and the realization that he’s actually gone.” Mrs Va’auli said Amiatu was only ill “a few days ago.” “Me and my family are devastated. It was so sudden, but I prefer that he’s now resting from the pain.”
