Former Prime Minister Bruce Golding is expected to be flown out of the country on Sunday to seek additional medical treatment in the United States.
RJR News has learnt that Mr. Golding recently had back surgery but there were some complications which resulted in a secondary procedure being performed. It’s believed the second surgical procedure did not result in significant improvement in former Prime Minister’s condition. Sources tell RJR News that Mr. Golding will leave the island on Sunday for Florida for some tests and possibly more surgery next week.
On Saturday evening several statements of support were posted on the social media website for the former head of government. In one posting on Face Book, former president of Generation 2000, G2K, Delano Seiveright said: “Get well soon Bruce Golding. Get well soon. I am sure the Doctors will get it right once and for all this time around.” Other postings on Face Book offered prayers for his early recovery.
The Jamaica Labour Party is expected to issue a statement on the matter later on Sunday.
Bruce Golding has kept a low profile since he demitted office in October last year, when he resigned and Andrew Holness became Prime Minister. He has made very few public appearances since leaving Jamaica House.
