Fiji nationals missing in Chad

By Fiji Broadcasting Corporation Ltd,

Relatives of a Fijian family who are missionaries in Chad, North Central Africa, have been trying to find out their whereabouts.

This is after fighting between rebels and government forces in the capital N’Djamena last weekend.

BBC News quoted aid agencies as saying that at least 100 civilians were killed and up to 700 were wounded in the capital N'Djamena during an attempted coup.

The Fijian couple – Lavenia and Eliki Drodrolagi and their two children, Isaac, 12, and Eroni, 9 - are part of WEC International Organisation, an evangelist group founded in Africa.

A nephew Jone Sukanaivalu told Radio Fiji Gold News the last time they spoke to the family was three weeks ago.

“Since the war we have not been able to get in touch, everyone’s pretty anxious to know what’s happening with them,” he said.

“In so trying, we have been able to check out the BBC updates and on email but unfortunately we cannot get any feedback from them.

“We have been watching FijiTV news every evening since the war began but unfortunately they’ve had some rather short news segments about the war in Chad.”
