Hammie Green packing a piece

I had a professional working relationship with Shirley in 1969 and 1970 when I worked at the Ministry of Works under her husband Green...

BTW she was famous for the fact of having been married to two men who ultimately became prime ministers of two different countries....namely PJ Patterson of Jamaica and Hamilton Green of Guyana...

Her father was also the speaker of the House at one time.....

Churchill was the original taps, Kwame and Lumumba. He did it all.

Okay, Prash, ease up on Churchill. He is my comrade and friend. Thank you very much.

Gilbakka you know me well enough to know that I am a peaceful person...but Prsahad always pushes the wrong button with me...it seems to be one of his favourite passtimes....I know who he is ....let him continue making an ass of himself.....

Thank you for your concern.....

There are still many unanswered questions surrounding her sudden death...around the time she died some members of the Field-Ridley family were having problems with Burnham....her brother was victimized after he started to question some of the things the then government was doing...I heard from a source close to the PNC that Shirley was very upset and was planning to leave Guyana....

Very interesting Churchill . I heard a rumour in Georgetown that she had become very upset with what Burnham was doing also but I never heard she was planning to flee Guyana.

Is that Shirley ??

Shirley Field-Ridley.  As Minister of Education, she visited Beterverwagting Govt. School, and we all had to stand up as she walked into our classroom and spoke to the our teacher Mr.  Rollingston Lewis.

 

y'all need to stop this empty nonsense

the available evidence points to her suicide . . . and cover up, for all the  obvious reasons

she was constantly being humiliated by Hammie with his nuff nuff wimmen . . . Burnham practically had to shotgun their marriage for appearances sake

Guyana, isolated and in economic tailspin simply did not help

i remember like yesterday watching her on TV in my college dorm fielding questions when Jonestown broke . . . she was excellent!

depression under the circumstances makes a lot of sense; creole middle class Guyanese like Field-Ridley were never doctrinaire communists

and, yes,  i do think that she considered leaving Guyana; her Jamaica connections remained strong

What is very interesting is recently I read that Walter Rodney had visited the American Embassy on December 3rd 1979 and may have met with the CIA station chief in Guyana and reassured him or her that the WPA was not opposed to the interests of the United States. He may have been tipped  off that someone was feeding the CIA false information.
