Set like a gem in the crown of South America, nestled on the North-Eastern shoulder, defying the raging Atlantic Ocean, Guyana's many waterways reflect the source of it's name "The Land of Many Waters"

Sawh was one of those Guyanese who fled Guyana under the harsh years of the Burnham government. He was born at Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara, the last of nine children. His parents were farmers and brought him up from their stall at the Stabroek Market in Georgetown. Their home and small business was destroyed in the riots of 1963. He lived in many parts of Guyana before heading to Canada.

There he attended York University and attained a degree in economics. During his 20 years in Canada, he headed the PPP’s support group there.

“My entire spare time was spent with the Association of Concerned Guyanese, of which I was President for about a decade. When you think of it, regrettably, I don’t have a personal friend, I don’t have a sport, I don’t have any kind of music,” he said in an interview with Chronicle Editor-in-Chief Sharief Khan, published May 4, 1997.
