Former Virgin Islands Party (VIP) candidate Charmaine Rosan-Bunbury has died.
Rosan-Bunbury, who is also a former magistrate, reportedly died of breast cancer.
While noting that he was saddened by Rosan-Bunbury’s death, leader of the opposing VIP Andrew Fahie remembered her as being widely loved.
“It is with deep sadness I express my condolences to the family of the late Charmaine Rosan-Bunbury on behalf of my family and I as well as on behalf of the entire Virgin Islands Party family. Our dear sister now deceased was one who dedicated her life standing for what was right and never compromised her position,” said Fahie in a tribute on social media.
“She was a voice for the voiceless. This year, the Virgin Islands have loss many loved ones to the great beyond. We have lost a member of the legal fraternity, a mother, a political activist, a friend, a person that meant so many different things to so many different persons. Let us cherish the many fond memories of our dear sister, friend and family in our hearts forever. May her soul rest in eternal peace,” he added.
Rosan-Bunbury unsuccessfully ran as an at-large candidate in the 2015 general elections.
Her death comes days after another VIP stalwart, Omar Hodge, died of illness.
