Former trooper mixes with the stars

Fred Marafono, right, with Daniel Craig, centre, and Jeferrey Wright



Former Special Air Services Fred Marafono is mixing it with Hollywood stars such as Daniel Craig and Jeffrey Wright.

The man from Pepjei in Rotuma runs his own company in Sierra Leone.

His namesake Fred Kauata Marafono, who works for Fiji Gas, said the elder Marafono was one of the first Fijians to be drafted into the British Army.

"The last we heard he was running his own security company in Sierra Leone," said Mr Marafono.

He said it was very likely Fijian officers serving with the United Nations had met him. On his association with film stars he said one time his namesake told him that his name appeared on the credits of a movie.

"He came back to Fiji in 1987 to spend Christmas with his family at home in Rotuma. He always finds the oddest of times to call me and it is either at 2am or 3am. His movements are also at some of the oddest of times and when you least expect it."

Mr Marafono said when he did some work for another Fijian SAS officer, Takavesi of Vanuabalavu, he asked him how he was related to Fred.
