Marlene McDonald

Government Minister: Marlene McDonald

MEMBER of Parliament for Port of Spain South Marlene McDonald will make her first appearance in the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court today on a number of fraud-related charges.

Even though she and three others were charged in early August, McDonald never officially appeared in court.

This was due to her falling ill while in police custody and being taken to St Clair Medical Centre for treatment for a still-undisclosed medical condition.


Angela Swamber, 60, is ­severely visually impaired but she’s a woman possessed of ­extraordinary grit and determination and has been taking care of her son, Aaron, 29, who suffers from cerebral palsy, all his life.
