Carroll Signs Book of Condolences for Nelson Mandela Family.

NEW YORK, NY — The Hon. Forrester J. Carroll, Bahamas Consul General to New York, on Friday, December 13, signed the book of condolence to the late South African President Nelson Mandela, at the South Africa Consulate in New York.

In the book, Consul General Carroll wrote the following: “On behalf of the government and peoples of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas — having had a substantive role (under the leadership of Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling) in leading CARICOM’s fight to have this great freedom fighter released from his 27 year imprisonment — I am proud to sign this book of condolences on the passing (from this scene) of this giant of a leader. Mr. Mandela was one, among the likes of Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who fought tooth and nail to the end for the rights of peoples, too long, oppressed.”
