T&T PM’S NEW BOOK
Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley of Trinidad and Tobago, has launched his biography “From Mason Hall to Whitehall: His name is Keith Rowley,” saying that he trusted himself to tell his own story about his political life.
“I decided I had to at least tell my story and I trusted myself to tell it. I discovered that the people I led knew very little about me,” he said of the book that was dedicated to his grandson Lucas, as well as to the Youth of Trinidad and Tobago.
Rowley, 66, became prime minister last September after he guided his People’s National Movement (PNM) to a 23-18 victory over the then coalition People’s Partnership administration of Kamla Persad Bissessar.
Anglican Bishop Claude Berkley said the self-published manuscript, which was originally completed and submitted in May 2016, emphasises the need for people not to lie, steal or kill.
“Love your neighbours. There was no love for a lazy man,” the Bishop said, telling the audience that the book gives Rowley’s version of his relationship with the late Prime Minister Patrick Manning, who died earlier this year.
A statement issued following the launch noted that Rowley gave several anecdotes from his life’s experiences, with a healthy appreciation and fondness for the humble beginnings in Mason Hall, Tobago.
