We are saddened to hear of the passing of the Honourable Bradley Roberts.
Big Bad Brad as he was fondly called in the political arena was an astute politician who served as a Parliamentarian, Cabinet Minister and National Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Party. He also served in various capacities on statutory boards and government agencies.
Mr. Roberts was also a historian in his own right and no doubt contributed to the development of our nation and democracy. Many regarded him as a repository of Bahamian political history and a political strategist. While many viewed Mr. Roberts as a polarizing figure in Bahamian politics, he will be remembered as a courageous and passionate wordsmith who loved his country
We salute him for his national service and dedication over the years.
On behalf of the Democratic National Alliance, we offer our deepest condolences to the Roberts family, friends and former colleagues. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
May his soul rest in peace.
