Social Share

EMBATTLED MEMBER?OF PARLIAMENT for St James North, Rawle Eastmond, yesterday put aside his political troubles for a brief period to attend church.
It was his 59th birthday and he celebrated quietly, thanking God for yet another year.
Of the 25 churches in his constituency, Eastmond opted to celebrate at the Church of God, Reid Road, The Garden, St James.
He was presented with a gift by Pearl Goodridge, wife of Reverend Martin Goodridge.
Eastmond stayed away from discussing politics, saying instead that in the past six weeks he had felt like 25.
Among those supporting Eastmond yesterday were his brother Jude The Dude Eastmond; former diplomat Ben Martinez, relatives and friends.
Eastmond, who has consistently won the St James North riding for the Barbados Labour Party since 1991, has expressed an interest in contesting the seat again whenever the general election is called. However, the branch has recommended that there be an open nomination in January to determine the candidate. (ES)
