History taught us that politicians are thieves, but why Cheddi Jagan died a poor man?
Was he nieve, stupid, or afraid to take money that doesn't belong to him?
He was a cane cutter's son, and his parents instilled strong values in him.

EA and them were neighbors in Port Morant. I'll call E and ask him.
I understand that he was an "adhikari" or Sadar, which means a field officer or "driver" which is one rung below the white masters; upper class in the scheme of things for Indians.
