Prime Minister Dean Barrow left Belize on September first to undergo spinal surgery in Havana, Cuba. This morning we spoke to his son Jamal Shyne Barrow who gave us an update on his recovery.
Reporter: On a lighter note any update on your father?
Shyne Barrow, Music Ambassador: “Well we will allow him to recover, we just need to pray that he has a rapid recovery with surgery. We thank everyone throughout the country who have been offering prayer and well wishes and God bless you. I would also like to say happy birthday to my uncle Dean Lindo the founder of the great United Democratic Party who turned 86 today.”
During Dean Barrow’s time away, Patrick Faber, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture, will act as Prime Minister. Prime Minister Barrow is scheduled to return to Belize on Independence Day.
