PNC Remembers Winston Murray
The PNC has lowered its flag to half staff as the party mourns the death of its Member of Parliament and former party Chairman Winston Murray, who passed away last evening at the Georgetown hospital after spending 12 days on life support. Mr. Murray collapsed 2 Thursdays while on his way home from a sitting of the national assembly. At the hospital last night, Murray’s wife Mrs. Marva Murray and their son Mark gathered along with PNC members and close friends. Their hopes had been shattered.
Party Leader Robert Corbin today reflected on the life of the man who served as his deputy for a number of years and who sat at his side in the national assembly. It is a loss that that cannot be replaced.
As family members begin their plans for the final goodbye, the PNC the party Murrays served for decades is planning a salute to his service and loyalty and the work that he did not just for the party for all of Guyana.
And President Bharrat Jagdeo in offering the sympathy of the Government said Mr. Murray’s passing has robbed this country and especially the National Assembly of an articulate and intelligent debater whose presentations in the House were always of an exceptionally high standard. He was an outstanding Guyanese and fine human being, resolute and firm in his convictions. President Jagdeo added. The ruling party the PPP said Despite his strong political views and advocacy on behalf of the PNCR, Winston Murray always maintained a good personal relationship with members of both sides of the house.
