Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony has expressed sorrow on behalf of the Government and people of Saint Lucia, on the passing of Mrs. Alimenta Bishop of Grenada, mother of the late Maurice Bishop.

In a telephone conversation on Monday, August 26, 2013, Dr. Anthony conveyed to the family of Mrs. Bishop, Saint Lucia’s admiration for the strength, courage and tenacity of the 97 year old. The Prime Minister remarked,

“Despite the pain and anguish she suffered over the years, she continued to be a model citizen and constantly rallied for justice and fairness. It is regrettable, that after so many years of agitation she was unable to receive disclosure about the burial site of her son, Maurice Bishop, who was brutally killed in 1983.  She was a strong, admirable Caribbean mother. “

Saint Lucia mourns with the family, the Government and people of Grenada.

Mrs. Bishop survived the untimely death of her husband, Rupert Bishop and her son Maurice Bishop, Grenada’s second Prime Minister.
