Prime Minister Rowley Extends Condolences to the Dumas Family

The Prime Minister, Dr the Honourable Keith Rowley, extends condolences to the family of former Minister Rennie Dumas who passed away earlier today, Sunday 14th May, 2017.

Mr Dumas, a former Cabinet Minister, served during successive People’s National Movement (PNM) administrations over the period 2002 – 2010, first in the Upper House as a senator and subsequently as Member of Parliament for Tobago East in the Lower House.

Rennie Dumas served the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago as a Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, a Minister of Public Utilities and the Environment, as well as a Minister of Local Government.

His last Ministerial posting was as Minister of Labour and Small and Micro-Enterprise. Mr Dumas’ service to the people of Trinidad and Tobago signified his innate sense of patriotism which was his driving force throughout his public service career. May he rest in peace.
