"He always wore rubber slippers"

More on the late Wordsworth McAndrew in today's Stabroek News; a brief statement by Guyana's minister of culture, Frank Anthony, and a tribute by Oscar Ramjeet, which includes this entertaining reminiscence:

Mac got the headlines in the newspaper when he rode off with his English bride on his bicycle after his wedding, wearing a dashiki shirt and rubber slippers. In fact, he always wore rubber slippers to work and refused to put on shoes despite a stern warning from the GBS General Manager Hugh Cholomondeley.
