It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of our colleague Member of Parliament for St. Ann North Eastern and Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson.
I extend heartfelt condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time.
Shahine was more than a colleague to me, she was a friend whose company I cherished.
I have watched her grow into a world class politician and a dedicated Minister of Government who worked hard to better the positions of those she served. She fought tirelessly for the poor and underprivileged and there have been lasting improvements in the lives of many because of her.
The Jamaican Parliament and the people of Jamaica have lost a true champion.
