There was a set of announcements last week that Walt Saunders who was to be the FNM’s standard bearer in the next general election in Mical was withdrawing from the race because of sickness. He was a bright and shining star but burned out in the firmament before he could shed any light. He claims sickness. He has reportedly been in hospital suffering from an undisclosed ailment which led his doctors to give him the advice. What he needs to do is to address whether or not he or his companies owe substantial sums to the government which come due in the millions and whether this is the real sickness that has him in the hospital.
