By Benjamin Flowers: Belizean artist Gilbert Alamilla, known by his stage name “Mr. Program” was stabbed to death on the night of October 2, 2020; today, a park in the Caribbean Shores division was inaugurated in his honor.

The park’s dedication was the result of a collaboration between the Belize City Council and Area Representative Kareem Musa. Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner attended the dedication along with Minister Musa, representatives of the Leadership Intervention Unit of the Department of Youth Services, musicians, and members of Alamilla’s family.

“Today’s dedication is indeed the signal of a new beginning, and a reunification of central government and local government partnerships to transform the aesthetic and utility of spaces within communities across this municipality in service of our youth and families,” the Belize City Council said. “It’s envisioned that this symbolic and public space becomes a collective unifier for the residents of this community, a playground for children, and a meeting ground to promote positive, interactive, and impactful discourse and activities as we aspire to build Belize by first building our communities and supporting our people.”

The dedication was scheduled for last month, however; the event was postponed due to the murder of two consituency residents.

Following Alamilla’s death, police officially arrested and charged Ladyville resident Raheem Davann Marsden for his murder. Аllеgаtіоnѕ аrе thаt Маrѕdеn еntеrеd thе hоuѕе whеrе thеу wеrе аnd thrеаtеnеd tо kіll thеm аll, thеn tоld оnе Сlауtоn Whіtе tо ѕtаb Аlаmіllа, to which he complied.

Alamilla is remembered for his dedication to his craft and his contributions to Belizean music.
