Murray Might Not Make It
Hope continues to fade as PNC Member of Parliament and former party chairman Winston Murray remains gravely ill and on life support at the Georgetown hospital. Relatives from overseas are expected in the country over the next 24 hrs and when they arrive the family is expected to make a final decision with regard to life support.
The neurosurgeon who was brought in from Jamaica after assessing Murray’s condition declared that there was no evidence of brain function and as such there was no need for surgical intervention.
Murray collapsed on Thursday evening on his way home after an afternoon in the national assembly. He was first rushed to the Balwant Singh hospital where he slipped into an unconscious state and later transferred to the Georgetown hospital where has remain since in the intensive care unit.
On Sunday, Dr Vanwest Charles, one of Murray’s close political friends explained the poor prognosis. The main opposition party has thanked its supporters and members for their prayers.
Murrays Health crisis came as a shock to many of his colleagues in the national assembly, as just hours before he collapsed he was busy in parliament challenging the administration in a debate.
The 69 year old Murray just weeks ago began a hectic campaigning schedule in his bid to become the PNC presidential candidate for the next elections. He considered himself the best presidential candidate.
