By Benjamin Flowers: Today, the Government of Belize issued the official program detailing the events being held in remembrance of the late former Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Dr. Sir Manuel Esquivel KCMG, PC.
At 1:00 p.m. today, the urn carrying his ashes will be transported via Cortège (Procession) to the former State Dining Room at the Government House, where it will lie in state. Due to COVID-19 restrictions only invited guests will be allowed to pay their respects, between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Tomorrow, February 16, at 2:10 p.m. there will be the tolling of church bells along the route which will signal the beginning of the Cortège (Procession) from Sir. Esquivel’s home to the grounds of the Government House, for a memorial concert celebrating his life to be held at 3:00 p.m. Following the concert Sir. Esquivel will receive his official military honors.
“Events include the playing of the National Anthem by the band of the Belize Defence Force and 21-cannon salute by the BDF; placing of wreaths by officials; and presentation of the Belize Flag to the family of Rt. Hon. Dr. Sir Manuel Esquivel,” GOB said.
