Minister Kowlessar hospitalised in US
Minister of Finance Saisnarine Kowlessar fell ill over the weekend while in the US on Government business and had to be hospitalised there, staff of the Finance Ministry confirmed to this newspaper yesterday.
And though Information Liaison to the President Robert Persaud confirmed that Kowlessar was indeed hospitalised over the weekend, he could not provide further information on the condition of the Minister or his ailment.
It is believed that the minister has a heart condition.
Sources told this newspaper too that the Minister was to have undergone surgery in relation to his illness. Kowlessar received treatment at a local hospital several months ago.
Guyana 360: The Auditor General is also hospitalised believed to be with a heart condition too. He is in the Twin-Island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. All our political leaders should take note and realise that politics is stressful not withstanding the economic rewards.
Burnham died of heart problems...So too did Cheddie and Hoyte...
President Jagdeo had better be mindful of the demise of our former male Presidents and not let his youthful persona get ahead of him...Male Presidents because aunty Janet still motoring along despite of all the obeah that was cast on her infront of the local courts.
