CAYMAN ISLANDS HOUSE SPEAKER McKEEVA BUSH RESIGNS

Cayman Islands Speaker of the House McKeeva Bush


September 21, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett |

Cayman Islands Speaker of the House McKeeva Bush has been asked to step down from that position.  This follows allegations that he sexually harassed at least two women at a recent cocktail party hosted by the Tourism Ministry during a Caribbean Tourism Organization, CTO Conference.

Bush was said to be intoxicated when the incidents occurred.  In a statement issued late Saturday, Premier Wayne Panton, who is in London for the Queen’s funeral said he asked Bush to resign but he intended to deal with the matter later this week at the end of the official period of mourning.

Premier Panton said he was forced to address the issue following claims made by Agriculture Minister Jay Ebanks.

This is not the first time that Bush has been faced with such accusations.  In December 2022, he received a 2-month suspended jail sentence for assaulting a woman in February that year.
