Keith Ferrier from Region 10 has decided to release an old photo of himself and Mr Norton after the Opposition Leader on Sunday night denied that they were relatives or brothers.

“Keith Ferrier is neither my mother’s or my father’s child,” Norton declared in a statement.

Mr Norton’s claim was in response to a statement made by Dr Bharrat Jagdeo, General Secretary of the PPP, while speaking at an event to remember the life and work of PPP co-founder, Dr Cheddi Jagan.

Dr Jagdeo stated: “…and I am so pleased to see you here Mr Ferrier, who is related to Mr Norton, but he is here and he has seen the light in the People’s Progressive Party and he may be able to tell you a few more stories.”

Dr Jagdeo did not describe or make a claim of Mr Ferrier’s exact relationship to Mr Norton.

But in a matter of hours, Mr Norton released a statement, accusing Dr Jagdeo of calling Mr Ferrier his “brother” and declaring that to be “totally untrue.”

Shortly thereafter, the PPP released on its Facebook page, a screenshot Mr Ferrier had sent to Dr Jagdeo describing a family photo of his “siblings” with Norton included.
