Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry expresses his deepest condolences at the passing away of Mrs Amina Koya.
She will always be remembered with honour and respect as the wife of the late Mr Siddiq Koya, former Leader of the Opposition and one of Fiji’s esteemed leaders who helped shape our country in its formative years.
Mrs Koya will be remembered in her own right as a person of remarkable fortitude who stood firmly by her husband throughout the vicissitudes of his political career.
I regret I am not able to personally pay my last respects to her as I am currently away in India.
My sympathies and that of the Fiji Labour Party to her children Faiyaz, Faizal and Shehnaz, and to other members of the family.
