Why go for treatment abroad when you have a clean bill of health?
That’s the question being asked by Political Scientist, Dr. Indira Rampersad with respect to the health of Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley.
The Prime Minister assured that tests done by his doctors in the United States have given him a clean bill of health.
However, Dr. Rampersad described his statement as highly suspect and questioned why Dr. Rowley chose to seek medical attention outside of Trinidad and Tobago.
She also said that some information was clearly not forthcoming, since the question of why he had been seeking medical attention for so long was left unanswered.
Dr. Rampersad believes that while the Prime Minister will be viewed as suspect, she did not think that the issue would significantly impact his political standing.
