He says that he has always been against driving when one is drunk and hence he had to ensure that his son learnt a lesson the hard way.
Speaking exclusively on the PD Online, Waititu now reveals that he refused to pick his son’s over 30 phone calls. He also instructed his family against bailing out their ‘defiant’ boy.
“My boy Brian called me over 30 times and, I refused to pick his calls. I have always warned him and all my family members against drunk driving,” said Ferdinand Waititu in an interview.
The former governor says that by bailing his son out, he would be promoting the offence that he had been involved in and that was not the best way to bring up his children.
He says that he even ordered his family to ensure that no one sent out any form of money to their son since they knew that he was in trouble for drunk driving.
According to Waititu, he would have wished that his son went to jail and he even regrets whoever gave him the phone to call his family and friends for money.
