The University of the West Indies (UWI) will celebrate the life of former president George Maxwell Richards at their annual fundraising Carnival all-inclusive fete on Sunday.

Prof Richards, a former principal of the St Augustine campus of the regional university (1984-1996), was instrumental in starting the fete as a means to provide bursaries for needy students.

Prof Richards, who held the highest national office in the land from 2003 to 2013, died of congestive heart failure, on Monday evening, at West Shore Private Hospital, Port of Spain.
