The Freedom Front Plus has with shock noted the sudden passing away of Minister Collins.
For five years I got to know him as a deputy minister within a cabinet setup. He was a pleasant person with an exceptional sense of humour and a love for music, like the CD’s which he made speaks of.
He made an important government contribution in that he helped to establish an evaluation system in Cabinet through which ministers and departments could be evaluated from time to time to establish whether they had reached their goals. Although it did not always succeed, it was a serious effort from his side to make government more effective.
The Freedom Front Plus would like to express its hope that the manner in which he had died as a result of a truck which had made a U-turn on the N1, will lead to a serious investigation into the reckless driving of some truck drivers, especially at night.
I wish to express the sympathy of the FF Plus with his family.
