We have recently been informed of the death of former Mayor and Councillor for Fant, Morel D’Souza.
Cllr Fran Wilson, Leader of the Council, said:
“Cllr Morel D’Souza was a warm, kind and generous man who was highly respected across all political parties.
“It was well known that he possessed a real passion for celebrating diversity within the community and was instrumental in the creation of the Maidstone Mela. His dedication and commitment to the residents he served and the charities that he worked hard to support in his Mayoral year (2003 – 2004) were, and still are, much admired. He will be greatly missed.
“On behalf of the council I would like to offer his family and friends our most sincere condolences at this sad and difficult time.”
Cllr Paul Harper, Leader of the Labour Group, added:
“Morel was a role model for many generations of Maidstone people, his inspiration is to be seen around the borough and, in particular, his love of multiculturalism, Goa and Tottenham Hotspur.”
