PPP hopes to see Rodney death enquiry this year
The PPP says it hopes the Commission of Enquiry into the death of scholar and historian Walter Rodney is set up and begins functioning in 2014.
On June 13, 1980 Rodney was killed after a device he was in possession of exploded. Since the incident, theories of who might have killed him and why he was killed have abounded. Rodney, who co-founded the Working People’s Alliance, was in strict opposition to partial politics, and worked against the then Forbes Burnham government.
