wordpress - can't activate WP-PageNavi plugin

I have a wordpress theme and the developer told me to install pagenavi to have pages on the bottom. for some reason, I can't activate this plugin. I get the following error:

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _pagenavi_init() (previously declared in /home/MYSITE/public_html/wp-content/themes/NAMEOFTHEME/includes/wp-pagenavi/wp-pagenavi.php:219) in /home/MYSITE/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/wp-pagenavi.php on line 60

It seems like its a case of collision. You are trying to include wp-pagenavi.php twice.
From your post I can conclude that this is not a plce for wp-navi plugin to be placed at.

/home/MYSITE/public_html/wp-content/themes/NAMEOFTHEME/includes/wp-pagenavi/wp-pagenavi.php:219

Leave it only on second location and see what you get.

I tried to delete the files located within the theme and I got an error. I think it's included in the theme already, but how to I activate it?

If Your wp-navi is hardcoded into the theme files (which seems unusual) You shouldnt have to activate the plugin.
What is the error You get when you delet the files that I told You?

I changed the pagenavi folder's name and tried loading the site. This is what I get.

Warning: require_once(/home/MYSITE/public_html/wp-content/themes/NAMEOFTHEME/includes/wp-pagenavi/wp-pagenavi.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/MYSITE/public_html/wp-content/themes/NAMEOFTHEME/functions.php on line 33

Remove that line in functions.php. Find require_once for wp-pagenavi.php and remove it. One more question, what is the theme we are talking about?
Can You point me to the web address?

I removed the run once like you suggested and changed that pagnavi's folder name and it started working. Thanks so much - I've been trying to get the developer to help, but he has been unresponsive so far (for the last 2 weeks). I am very satisfied with it now.

Theme name: furu from themeforest.
