Myrna Manzanares, a leading cultural icon, has died. As we reported in yesterday’s news, she was hospitalised on December 15 at the KHMH in Belize City and was slated to undergo a CT scan. Unfortunately, she died this morning at 1:40. We look back at the life of Miss Myrna, whose life was dedicated to preserving all aspects of Kriol culture. Dale McDougall reports.

Manzanares is survived by her children Shalini Manzanares and Robert Staine and her brothers Lance Lockwood and Selwyn Terry. Statements of condolence have come from the United Democratic Party this morning, who described Manzanares as a quote “devoted and dedicated member” of the organisation. Party Leader Patrick Faber said that he and the party declare quote “our exceeding respect and appreciation for the exemplary life, tremendous accomplishment and immeasurable contribution of Manzanares to Belize and to humanity” End quote.
