(CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS)- It was six years ago on June 11, 2007, that the Nevisian public and the Federation, learnt of the passing of the Hon. Malcolm Guishard, Leader of the Opposition in the Federal Parliament of St Kitts-Nevis.
The reports indicated that Mr. Guishard was swimming at Gallows Bay in Nevis when he complained of short breath and chest pains. He was immediately taken to the Alexandra Hospital but succumbed to his illness upon arrival.
