Dr. Wykeham McNeill; Executive Director of the Tourism Enhancement Fund, Clyde Harrison; sculptor Scheed Cole; and Minister of Youth and Culture, the Hon. Lisa Hanna, pose beside the new statue of the late reggae icon, the Hon. Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley, which was unveiled yesterday (February 8) at the Trench Town Culture Yard. The statue, sculpted by Scheed Cole, was commissioned by Minister McNeill as part of a multi-million dollar renovation of the culture yard that is being funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF). This is in keeping with the Ministry’s drive to develop cultural heritage sites across Jamaica and further enhance and diversify the island’s tourism product.
