Chairman of Williams Industries Ralph “Bizzy” Williams, former director of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF) and ex-talk show host Elton “Elombe” Mottley, and Director of Finance and Economic Affairs Ian Carrington are the latest Freedom Of Barbados awardees.
It has been conferred on them for distinguished and extraordinary service to Barbados, the Caribbean, the Caribbean diaspora or to humanity at large.
They will now be accorded the title “The Most Honourable”, which has replaced the knighthood previously awarded before Barbados became a republic last November 30.
Last year, 12 Barbadians, led by President The Most Honourable Dame Sandra Mason, received the honour.
Then Prince Charles (now King Charles) was here to accept the Honorary Order of Freedom Of Barbados. (Nation News)
