Read the story below found in the Gleaner.
“With just under a month before the first anniversary of one of Jamaica’s most tragic events, the incursion of Tivoli Gardens, which left at least 74 Jamaicans dead and all the drama that followed thereafter; a one-month manhunt, a dramatic arrest and the swift extradition of the man who caused it all, Michael Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, and even the recently concluded Manatt-Dudus enquiry, there is more.
A full-length non-fictional account of the Dudus saga and all its intricacies has made it clear that another log has seemingly been tossed into the fire of controversy that simply refuses to leave the Dudus saga in the backdrop.
Set for release on May 24, one year after the incursion date, Jamaica’s First President, Dudus 1992-2010, His Rise, His Reign, His Demise, is a 306-page investigative volume that literally chronicles the life and exploits of the man himself; Dudus, in addition to the epidemic-like level of lawlessness in Jamaica since its independence in 1962.
The primary focus of this volume, however, centres around one specific land mass; a portion of real estate that has been labelled ‘the mother of all garrisons’ – Western Kingston’s Tivoli Gardens, and its cast of notorious characters; all of which is said to have contributed and paved the way to Dudus’ presidency.
Written, investigated and compiled by K.C. Samuels, and published by Pageturner Publishing House, Jamaica’s First President takes readers beyond the headlines for a walk on the lawless side of Jamaica. The accounts are true, photos authentic, and the wealth of information presented so riveting, there is little doubt regarding the spellbinding effect this volume is sure to have on its readers.
A page turner from its preface, the first paragraph reads, ‘History has recorded the names and legacies of many men, some great, some famous, and some, infamous. The famous and great are many and interesting in their own right, but the infamous seem to possess a different sort of power; they are colourful, dangerously intriguing, and more interesting than we are at times willing to admit, and when it comes to the Caribbean, specifically Jamaica, none has elevated to such a status in recent times than the infamous, and now world renowned, Michael Christopher Dudus Coke.’
