Former Jamaican Prime Minister Hospitalized

KINGSTON, Jamaica, Monday, January 13, 2020 (CMC) – Former Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, is being treated in hospital, after being admitted on Friday.

It’s reported that Golding, who was Prime Minister between 2007 and 2011, was heading to the southern parish of St. Elizabeth, when he complained of feeling nauseous.

After leading the Jamaica Labour Party to victory in 2007, Golding resigned, suddenly, in 2011. 

Before his resignation, he had a protracted dispute with officials of the United States, who requested the extradition of then Tivoli Gardens’ strongman, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

Coke is now serving a 23-year prison sentence in the US.
