(Trinidad Guardian) In a brief post minutes ago, Prime Minister Keith Rowley extended “his deepest condolences to the family of Senator the Hon Franklin Khan”.
The Office of the Prime Minister social media page wrote that “the Prime Minister is extremely saddened by the passing of his colleague and friend who will be remembered as a man who dedicated his life to public service. Dr Rowley mourns the loss of a patriot and son of the soil. May God bring comfort and strength to his loved ones”.
News of his passing comes as a surprise as just two weeks ago, Khan was speaking to the media about setting up a committee to investigate the Niquan explosion and seemed in good health.
