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.

I don't think his father was a cane cutter. I was too young to understand when the older folks would say things like he was Janet's puppet. 

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.
