St George’s—On behalf of the Government and People of Grenada, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell extends the most profound sympathies to the family, friends, and indeed, the People of T&T, on the passing of former Prime Minister, Patrick Manning.

Former prime minister Patrick Manning has died at age 69, the same age as his hero Dr Eric Williams who died in 1981. Both gave their lives to the PNM and both men transcended the jealousy of their detractors.
