In reply to people saying her son should not have been in the campaign, given his age, the saddened mother declared that “young baby” was also on the bus during the motorcade.

“Mi see young baby deh pon politics bus, so dat coulda happen to anybody and a just life,’ she outlined.

The leader of the opposition, Mark Golding also sent condolences to the family of the victim.
