Kenneth Russell MP for High Rock.
Nassau, Bahamas — The Tribune is reporting former Minister responsible for NIB and current Minister of Housing, Kenneth Russell, is in hospital following what appears to be a mild heart attack.
Reports are that Russell checked himself into hospital on Tuesday, the day after Prime Minister Ingraham left for a summit on the environment. We wonder why was this keep such a secret until now and what did the PM tell him that triggered this.
Russell is the centre of an ongoing probe by Bahamas Press, which involves his ‘buffed roommate’, Iram Lewis, who received contracts from NIB while Russell served as minister. Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham has ordered his own probe into NIB and Russell is feeling the pressure.
Readers would remember when former minister of education, Carl ‘UNDERNOURISHED’ Bethel, was under fire by BP he did the same and checked himself in the PMH. He came out with a BIG GRIN on his face recieving holy unction from his priest. The light, cameras and action orchestrated by ZNS was still not enough to protect him from the vicious cut you know what your Bahamas Press had in store for him!
‘Undernourished’ is now serving coffee at the headquarters of the FNM and is on the ground in Elizabeth. Kenneth Russell will soon join him.
