‘His Legacy Endures’ – UWP Observes 16th Anniversary Of Sir John Compton’s Death


Today September 7th, 2023, the United Workers Party wish to join the nation in quiet reflection as we mark the 16th anniversary of the passing of the father of our nation and visionary, founding leader of the UWP, the late Sir John GM Compton.

Although he has gone to the great beyond, his legacy endures, etched into the very fabric of our nation’s history.

He will never be forgotten and is ever present in our thoughts and our hearts. His unparalleled contribution to the socioeconomic development of our island, his wise counsel, his enduring love of our country, St. Lucia, will forever inspire and guide us as we go forward and confront the challenges of today and tomorrow.

May we continue to reflect the values, goals and aspirations envisaged by him.

His life of service to the people of Saint Lucia remains an example for us all, burning bright like the flame of that proverbial candle which he carried to light our world.

May his memory long be with us, may his legacy live on in our hearts and actions.

May he continue to rest in the Lord’s perfect peace.

  1. Talking about raising the dead; same ol’ father of the nation and many others beside; for you not to forget, a Statue was erected so the Pigeons do what comes naturally; road name changed for one of dimmer light, will change again for one of darker account?

  2. If you people loved him sooo much, why did you kill him? Don’t think we have forgotten the events which led to his demise. Don’t think we have forgotten what took place at that meeting, yes the last one he attended. I hope retribution collides with all guilty parties.

  3. I really thought when KDA took over from Compton via V.Lewis he would of take this country to a next progressive level, only to realize the man is a big load of academic nothing. He built a number of schools and a prison, the schools are empty, some even closed and the prison is over flowing. Make that make sense. Not even his area of speciality, the constitution he addresses to make a better Slu. His best economic plan is CIP.
