SHOT DEAD: Curtis Robertson

CURTIS ROBERTSON, a 37-year-old father of seven, was a jovial man who worked hard to provide for his family and his death has left an enormous space in his household.

The security guard at acting Agriculture Minister Sataydeow Sawh’s Lot 61-62 Earl’s Court, La Bonne Intention, East Coast Demerara, home was killed in a hail of bullets when gunmen invaded the premises shortly after midnight Friday.

Minister Sawh, his brother Rajpat and sister Pulmatie Persaud were also brutally killed in an attack that has sent shockwaves throughout the country and plunged it into mourning.

Three other persons, including another brother of the minister, and two other security guards at neighbouring houses were also wounded in the attack.

Robertson, of Lot 59 Cross Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, was employed by Strategic Action Security for the past 10 years.

His reputed wife Rehanna Haywood, 33, said she last saw her husband around 17:30 h Friday when they both left home for work.
