By Delroy Cuthkelvin: Were he still alive, Sir Manuel Esquivel would have celebrated his 82nd birthday today, May 2, 2022. Sir Manuel left us less than three months ago on February 10, 2022.
A Taurus like ourselves, Sir Manuel, though gentle in style, was ‘bullish’ indeed in promoting and enforcing the UDP’s foundational principles of honesty and integrity in public life. We are proud to have worked with him in the Office of the Prime Minister during his second term leading the nation of Belize from 1993 to 1998.
Sir Manuel had previously also served as Prime Minister during the UDP’s first term in office from 1984 to 1989, when we inherited the government already on a standby arrangement with the IMF, and quickly turned the economy around, growing the GDP by over 5 percent after the first year in office.
Continue to Rest In Peace, Sir Manuel. Belize is better because of you.
