The Rt. Hon Professor of Practice Owen Seymour Arthur born October 17, 1949 was a giant and titan and will forever be inscribed in the annals of Barbadian history. The Rt. Hon Prof. Owen Arthur is the longest serving Prime Minister of Barbados who piloted the country through the treacherous waters of economic uncertainty to the calm waters of economic prosperity.
Former Prime Minister Arthur was instrumental in the redevelopment of Kensington Oval as we know it today. The modern refurbishment was key for the ICC CWC 2007, where Barbados hosted the show piece final and then again for the T20 World Cup 2010.
We were saddened to have learnt of his untimely passing and join the nation and the region in honouring his sterling contribution to the Nation and to Kensington Oval.
The Management and Staff of Kensington Oval Management Inc. offer sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the Late Rt. Hon. Prof. Owen Seymour Arthur former Prime Minister of Barbados.
May he rest in Peace!
