A Health Problem Sends T&T Pm To The Us

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Calls for Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and the Government to “come clean” with the nation on his health condition have mounted, following Rowley’s recent hint that there appear to be some “changes” in his health issues which both his local and foreign doctors feel should be “investigated further.”

Politicians and analysts say his health cannot be his personal business when he’s a public figure and the country’s leader. Three weeks ago, Rowley announced he would do a medical check during a two-week vacation he was taking.

Soon after, Office of the Prime Minister spokesman Stuart Young had said at this stage there was no cause for concern about Rowley’s medical condition, but asked people to “pray” for him.

The PM left last Thursday for the US, accompanied by his wife Sharon Read more
