Former Prime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, has been hospitalized again.
In January 2020, he was admitted to the Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) after complaining of nausea.
Then, doctors at the facility conducted tests to discern his ailment.
According to reports then, Golding was on his way to St Elizabeth for an event when he became ill.
In a statement on Thursday, his daughter, Senator Sherene Golding Campbell, said Golding was hospitalised that evening for “a recurring health condition that he has suffered (from) for some time”.
She said Golding was admitted to the Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) for observation.
“It is expected that he will be home soon once his health indicators are satisfactory to his physician,” wrote Golding Campbell.
“My father and family thank you for your expressions of support and well-wishes for his speedy recovery,” she concluded.
Golding was Prime Minister of Jamaica between 2007 and 2011. Under his leadership, the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) defeated the People’s National Party (PNP) in the General Elections of 2007.
However, he suddenly resigned in 2011 amid a controversy relative to a development after an extradition request was made by United States government for then Tivoli Gardens strongman, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke
