Makandal Daaga's funeral

Sunday, August 14, 2016 - 19:00

The funeral service of freedom fighter Makandal Daaga took a twist as former radio personality Ricardo "Gladiator" Welsh rose from his seat and shouted slurs at a speaking Minister of Communication Maxie Cuffie. Instead of a standing ovation, Minister Maxie Cuffie would be on the receiving end of insults from Welsh.
He was delivering a tribute to Daaga on behalf of vacationing PM Dr Keith Rowley when Welsh loudly made his way to the front of the stage and accused the government and the ministers present of being a hypocrites.
