The word “precognition” is derived from the Latin combination of “prae” meaning before and “cognitio”, which means “acquiring knowledge”. Quite succinctly, it is a claimed psychic ability to see events in the future. I was encouraged to research this as I pondered an applicable description of the phenomenal and prodigious ability that Kamla Persad-Bissessar has exhibited in allegedly forecasting the arrest of a senior PNM minister weeks before it actually occurred.

But unlike Prime Minister Keith Rowley who disparages Mrs Persad-Bissessar’s miraculous gift of foresight and prescience, I consider it a wonderful addition to a “vote for” list in deciding the choice for a future prime minister.
