Renowned Jamaican professor, Barry Chevannes, has been hospitalised in serious condition since Saturday.

Reports are that Chevannes, a sociologist who has lectured at the University of the West Indies for many years, was at his home when he started to complain that he was in pain.

In addition to his academic achievements, Chevannes has been a leading activist for peace in Jamaica.

He is a founding member of Fathers Inc, a group which encourages fathers to play their role, and chairman of the Violence Prevention Alliance.

Chevannes is also chairman of the Institute of Jamaica.
