Prime Minister expresses his condolences to the family of the late Makandal Daaga.

Dr Keith RowleyAs the out pouring of sympathy to the family of the late Makandal Daaga continues, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley expressed his condolences in a press release today.

He stated that Daaga, who made his mark as a political activist in the 1970s as leader of the Black Power Movement was not afraid to challenge the status quo, speak up against injustice and advocate for equality.

Prime Minister Rowley went on to say that even in the latter years of his life, Daaga continued to be a presence on the political landscape of Trinidad and Tobago, which undoubtedly attested to the fact that his interest in the development of our twin island State, never diminished. I join the rest of the national community in mourning the loss of Mr. Daaga and hold up his loved ones in prayer.

    The mighty Trinifeak 2 years

    I also express my condolences to the family of this great NJAC leader. He was the last politician who was having the vision to make T&T a black country. Pseudo whites like Colm Imbert would not have a chance to become minister under the government of Prime Minister Daaga.Of course the PNM was always the opponent of Mr. Daaga. For this reason Dr. Keith appears to be happy to have one opponent less than before.
