Cricket fans on Nevis and across the diaspora were left completely devastated and bewildered, as the fantastic celebrations of Independence 40, came and went and not a whisper as regards the much-anticipated announcement that Elquemedo Tonito Willet would be elevated to the status of national hero.
Even after the many recommendations and appeals made, one of which came in the form of a verbal bouncer from Sir Anderson Roberts.
Even after the signed petition of scores of individuals.
Even after a slight hint from Prime Minister Drew that the pronouncement was in the works.
Well, after all of that, National Heroes’ Day passed without the expected announcement.
Independence Day passed and NOT A WORD IN ENGLISH!
DISAPPOINTED is even putting it mildly.
It is the sincere hope of many, that a surprise announcement will still be made –SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
