Let me tell you the true story of David Arthur Singh who was appointed as Minister of Housing and Reconstruction. His law office was on Croat Street in Georgetown. He was married to a beautiful Black woman and they had lovely children. 

In the early 1970s, Hamilton Green who was then Minister of Works and Hydraulics who used his position to benefit himself, (was involved in widespread corruption building his house using Government Steel and other building materials and Government paid labour and transport). He somehow dragged David Singh into this situation. There was a call for an investigation into the matter. Forbes Burnham agreed and asked the Ombudsman, at the time former Justice GAS Van Sertima to investigate. He investigated them both and just about a few days before the investigation was to be released, it was alleged by the Gov’t that he committed suicide. Talk all over Georgetown then was that his death was set up to look like suicide by Hamilton Green. The report of the investigation was never released and shortly thereafter the Ombudsman's office was closed.

My observation, seeing him a few times and my parents interaction with him, he seemed conflicted!
