Patrick Manning - 17 August 1946 - 02 July 2016
It is a deep sadness that I report the death of former T&T Prime Minister Patrick Manning. We shared a friendship that lasted decades although we didn't always agree on political issues. I extend deepest condolence to his wife, Hazel, whom I have known personally for decades, his sons and other family members. Whatever his shortcomings, Mr Manning was a true patriot who served T&T well.

He was the longest serving parliamentarian in Trinidad and Tobago and held the office of prime minister from 1991 to 1995 and again from 2001 to 2010.

May his soul find eternal peace.

Jai Parasram
