Kingston, Dec 3 (Prensa Latina) Glynne Manley, widow of former Jamaican Prime Minister, affirmed today that Fidel Castro was a present for the world by expressing heartfelt condolences for the physical disappearance of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution.
Glynne sent a message to the Cuban embassy here and asked to transmit her sorrow to the Cuban people for the demise last November 25 of the revolutionary fighter, whom, she said, will miss him very much.
‘Fidel was a present to the world. He traveled the world as a colossus and gave men and women an example of integrity, compassion and intelligence used to alleviate the suffering of the less fortunate and those who had no voice’, she asserted.
Under Michael Manley’s first period, Jamaica, together with Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Guyana- took the decision to establish in 1972 diplomatic relations with Cuba and break with the isolation that faced that government after the triumph of the Revolution in the greater of the Antilles in 1959.
With her message, the widow of the former Caribbean head of Government is added to the numerous world personalities, governments and organizations expressing sorrow for the demise of Fidel Castro.
