Seaga unworthy of hero status

Well said, Delano Franklyn!

I sat here daily waiting to see who knew the facts more than I did would write the truth regarding Edward Seaga.

I remembered as a teenager when violence raged in Kingston. I was living in Greenwich Town at the time. Places where I was free to walk unaccompanied, I could no longer go.

At election time, people feared for their lives, and much of this is linked to the leadership of Edward Seaga.

He did some good, as Franklyn mentioned in his Sunday Gleaner column ‘Seaga: good, bad and ugly’ (June 30, 2019), but certainly, he did some things I cringe to talk about. I don’t see Mr Seaga as deserving of the accolade of national hero.
