By Benjamin Flowers: Individuals and organizations continue to offer condolences following the passing of Belize’s second Prime Minister, Sir Manuel Esquivel, with the latest being the United States Embassy.

The US Embassy issued a statement on its official Facebook page this morning, to pay respect to the great contribution he made to the development of Belize.

“The United States Embassy offers heartfelt condolences for the recent passing of former Prime Minister R.H. Sir Manuel Esquivel. Sir Esquivel’s stewardship of the country came at a pivotal time in the post-independence era. As a founding member of the United Democratic Party, he helped cement Belize’s commitment to democracy and openness to political dialogue. His legacy as an experienced statesman will endure,” the Embassy said.

Sir Manuel died at a local hospital around 4:30 p.m. yesterday. He was 81 years old. Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow and Prime Minister John Briceno were among the first to offer their condolences.
