T&T PM Diagnosed With Heart Problems

Trinidad Express:-  THERE is a build-up of plaque in one of the arteries of Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s heart.

Because of this, coupled with the fact that the Prime Minister had failed to have his annual medical check-up carried out in the United States last year, his local physician has advised that he take immediate steps to have the examination carried out to determine the status of his health.

Dr Rowley made the revelation on Sunday during a press conference held at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann’s.

He pointed out however, that he does not suffer any symptoms but his local doctor advised him that matters of such nature, an absence of symptoms might itself be detrimental to his well-being.

“I would leave Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday (tomorrow) and I will join my doctors and family in California and go through whatever process and procedure is required and my return would be at the earliest but I can’t say when at this point in time because it would be dependent on what the outcome of my excursion to the medical fraternity is.

In his absence, Finance Minister Colm Imbert will perform the role of Prime Minister.
