Bas alive and kicking

Monday, April 23, 2018

Former prime minister Basdeo Panday yesterday took to social media to deny fake reports that he was dead.

Responding to claikms he had died overnight, Panday, in a Facebook post, wrote: “I am alive and intend to be so until I die.”

His daughter Mickela also attempted to assure her father was alive and well in an update on her Facebook page.

She wrote: “There is cruel and vicious rumour being spread that our dad has passed away. Whilst we have become accustomed to fake news this is a new low. Please be assured that he is alive and kicking!”
