Politician turned author Buchanan wants more for Bob Marley

Former Member of Parliament for West Rural St Andrew, Paul Buchanan has appealed for the restoration of the area surrounding the Bob Marley Culture Yard in the constituency of St Andrew South.

Buchanan, who released his second book, Jones Town Trench Town the Journey Back, last Tuesday evening at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, The University of the West Indies, Mona, expressed that more focus needed to be placed on the rehabilitation of the Trench Town-housed project, based on its important connection to reggae legend Bob Marley.

“It cannot be an oasis surrounded by any instance of degradation. That’s an injustice to Bob. Despite the tremendous work that (Member of Parliament) Omar (Davies) has done, that still remains to be done… and giving justice to Bob Marley and all he has done for the community and the nation is important,” said Buchanan.

Buchanan’s book focuses on a historical recollection of life in South St Andrew from the 1930s, as well as revealing those who have emerged from within that area. Read more
