PNM women give thanks for Manning’s recovery
A thanksgiving service was held in the San Fernando East constituency yesterday evening to mark the remarkable recovery made by former prime minister Patrick Manning, one year after suffering a stroke. The service was organised by the San Fernando East Women’s League. The league’s education officer Carlene Granger said they wanted to give thanks for the strides their MP has made in the past year.
“Last Wednesday was one year since he got a stroke and he is recuperating nicely, so we decided to give thanks to celebrate how far he has reached,” Granger said. Manning, dressed in a white long-sleeved shirt and black trousers, got out of the passenger seat of his vehicle shortly after 5 pm. Accompanied by his wife, former education minister Hazel Manning, Manning walked unassisted but with a slight limp into the constituency office.
Manning has been on continuous leave from the Parliament for the last year. He returned to the country in August, after spending seven months undergoing rehabilitation treatment. Since his return, he has applied for extended leave twice. Last Monday, he was granted a further 42-day extension. Sources said he was expected to return to the Parliament when his leave expires.
