This country’s Prime Minister has joined in solidarity with many who today mourn the loss of media house owner and former Caribbean Airlines Vice Chairman, Mohan Jaikaran.
Mr. Jaikaran died at his home on Sunday. He was the owner of WIN Communications.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar, in a media statement issued to the media, coined Mr. Jaikaran a dedicated patriot. She said he was a pioneering businessman in the media and entertainment sector and a philanthropist with an eye for talent. Highlighting that Mr. Jaikaran was responsible for giving many performers their first break in the entertainment world, the Prime minister added that he donated hugely to charity and was a community builder who focused on local talent and indigenous culture.
Saying that Trinidad and Tobago and the region in general has suffered a severe blow with the passing of Mr. Jaikaran, Mrs. Persad Bissessar noted that he was a humble person who had a passion for helping people while seeking no rewards for his kindness.
