Former PM Edward Seaga is dead

Former Prime Minister of Jamaica and Labour Party leader, Edward Seaga is dead. The revelation comes minutes ago from a post on Prime Minister Andrew Holness Facebook page.

The full post is as follows:

It is with great sadness that I inform the nation of the passing of the Most Honourable Edward Phillip George Seaga, the fifth Prime Minister of Jamaica.

He transitioned today at approximately 1:00 pm Jamaica time. Mr Seaga was receiving treatment in the United States and had his family with him.

Today marks his 89th birthday.

The family of Mr Seaga has asked me to express gratitude on their behalf for the many prayers and messages of comfort and support offered by the people of Jamaica.

The necessary arrangements are in place for Mr Seaga’s body to be flown back to Jamaica at the earliest possible time.

  1. The people of Jamaica are in mourning for a great man! He was highly regarded.. Some feared him. Some hated him. Some loved him. But all respected him. He has done so much for Jamaica.. I was there when that picture was taken and have an autographed copy of his book in my library. Thanks for this post! Condolences and prayers to his loved ones.. May his soul R.I.P.
