A tower of a man

Dear Editor,

Very rarely we come across a dynamic, aggressive, persuasive and determined individual we may classify as a truly born son of the soil; one who will give his all to fight for equal rights and justice and solely for the purpose of being satisfied with nothing else but natural fair play.

Mr Ezroy Millwood worked tirelessly and selflessly to ensure that justice was served for his transport group and that adequate compensation was forthcoming for his colleagues. He went on the journey feverishly, and almost alone to the Privy Council for justice which he got. That took quite a while.

However, we cannot blame the government for trying to mitigate its losses, especially in these difficult times. Who would not want to mitigate their loss against such a huge sum awarded to Mr Millwood's transport company?

Mr Millwood had wonderful visions and insights for the transport sector. To my knowledge, he was the first person who was instrumental in wanting a cashless system for the transport sector from as far back as the late 90s.

It seems the latest move by the government to prolong the case by seeking a reduction in the amount of funds to be awarded has certainly put a spanner in the works.

No one can deny that Mr Millwood worked assiduously to achieve his objective for his colleagues, and whatever happens hereafter will certainly be attributed to his efforts. May the Lord bless his soul. You were a tower of a man, Mr Millwood.
