If ah remember correctly he was ah friend of the Grenada revo.  It is either he or the next one ah forget..  No doh tink it was him, ah tink it was Manley. Seaga was ah very close friend of America.  I think he was born in America.  Yep he hated the revo.  Yep Seaga is ah White American.

Manly wrote books also, his books was very difficult to read, including his Cricket book.

"Blinds" - that's what we called him in JA back then, because "See"-aga couldn't see a thing! We also called him CIA-ga. He built up his paramilitary base in Tivoli Gardens in the West Kingston ghettos and he was feared by all his enemies. Along with Manley, he is responsible for the increase in guns and political violence, Jim Brown the cocaine king of the Yardy gangs in the USA was his official personal bodyguard, hence untouchable. This legacy continues down to today, Dudus Coke (what an apt name!) is Jim Brown's son.

Yes he was an icon blah blah but do I shed any tears real or crocodile? Not a drop.
