Mr Kafa, 38, was a Bachelor of Arts student majoring in education and management and public administration. He is survived by his wife and two children.

USP acting Vice Chancellor Dr Esther Williams said USP was deeply saddened by the passing away of Mr Kafa.

A USP delegation led by the acting Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Law, Dr Akanisi Kedrayate, including a student representative, will accompany the body to the Solomon Islands today where he will be laid to rest.

Mr Kafa diedd during a water safety course at the USP campus pool on Thursday.
