ROSE HALL, St James — Lady Allen, wife of Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, confessed Wednesday that she had an impulse to migrate after learning of the murder of 40-year-old Detective Sergeant Courtney Anthony Simpson.
Simpson was ambushed by gunmen and shot eight times as he was about to enter his Pearl Avenue home in Harbour View, St Andrew about 7:00 pm on Monday. “Yesterday (Tuesday) morning when I woke up I didn’t want to be a Jamaican, I must be honest with you. And the reason is, there is a security I had at King’s House when I went there by the name of Sergeant Simpson. He was one of the best security persons I have met and when I got the news that he was gunned down, I didn’t want to be in Jamaica anymore,” bemoaned Lady Allen.

She was speaking during Wednesday’s launch of Western Union’s National Reading Week held at John Rollins Success Primary School in Rose Hall, St James, which was attended by students from 22 schools across western Jamaica.
The activity forms part of Western Union’s ‘I-PLEDGE’ Programme 2013.
At the time of his murder, Sergeant Simpson, a 20-year veteran of the police force, formed a part of the security detail for Junior Minister Julian Robinson. He previously served as head bodyguard for former Governor General Kenneth Hall, former Health Minister John Junor and Transport and Works Minister Omar Davies.
On Wednesday, Lady Allen, who is the patron of ‘IPLEDGE’, said that the performances of cultural items by students from John Rollins Success Primary and Corinaldi Primary schools gave her renewed hope for the country.
“Coming here this morning and hearing the boys and girls from Corinaldi and John Rollins schools, I have hope that Jamaica is going to be a place to live, work, raise our families and do business,” she said.
“Students, you have to learn that you are going to be a big part of that vision to be attained,” Lady Allen said, adding that GraceKennedy is pumping millions of dollars into the programme.
‘I-PLEDGE’ organisers used the opportunity to forge a partnership with John Rollins Success Primary School, which was staging its yearly Reading Marathon.
The reading marathon was conceptualised by Principal Yvonne Miller Wisdom “with a focus to take learning from the four walls of the classroom to make it fun outdoors”.
