PM leaves country to join wife in Miami

Earlier today, Prime Minister Dean Barrow left the country and headed back to Miami where his wife, Kim Simpliss Barrow is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. According to a release from the Government Press Office, the Deputy Prime Minister, Gaspar Vega will be the acting PM for today and Saturday. Vega then leaves for Barbados to represent PM Barrow at the Mexico-CARICOM Summit. The high level meeting will include Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon as well as the prime ministers and presidents of the CARICOM member states. While both Vega and Barrow are out of the country, Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Patrick Faber, will hold over as acting prime minister.

    I’d be happy to pay, as long as it is a one-way ticket. Then we’d have one less fool “career politician” to worry about.

    @mindunu, i agree with you on almost every thing exept the private life he is the prime minister so he will be on public eye no more privicy de. Thats something he has to deal with not every thing will be sweet. M.r prime minister i wish you and your family the best and if you no have the money for the hospital we are willing to help. Canser dont descriminate (remember that people of Belize) it can happen to you tomorrow.

    stop those negatives criticism, PM is setting a good example being with his wife in this time.
    why you all blame Pm for everything that goes bad in this country?
    when it comes to all the murders taking place and done by young men, my question is where are the fathers of this young boys? Where are the mothers? If we had more men like Mr Barrow maybe we would have a peaceful Belize.
    Stop blaming the Government, whether it be red or blue, parents are the one to start setting the example for their children.

    So sorry to hear about his wife, since my family is going through the same situation right now. My mother was diagnosed with cancer. We decided to take her out of the country and the day she was to leave we realized passport had expired the 1st of this month. We went to immigration office, then we were told that eventhough letter from doctor said urgent, mom could wait for her passport to be renewed. Of course immigration officer denied renewal, even after many hours of pleading. Until my sister started crying and begging for my mother’s life and officer received a call from ambassador, it was renewed at the end of the day. Let me say again after waiting from opening time until 3:30. I sent PM an even more detailed e-mail about what had happened and what was done was deleted the account. Isn’t that amazing!!! I thought after explaining to him what had happened and stating that my mother was going through same thing as wife, then at least they would call the attention of that immigration officer. No, it wasn’t so. It is our right as belizeans to get a passport and when we need it is an emergency, what is so hard to do the renewal?

    Regardless give them their personal space and respect I just hope she is healed just like other Belizeans I would ask for our Lords healing and blessings upon them and all others in just need.
