Tributes to Peniston in House
Respects were paid this morning in the House of Assembly to a 61-year-old homeless man who died yesterday after he was found lying in a Hamilton street.
Michael Weeks of the Progressive Labour Party told MPs that Keith Peniston, a well-known figure around the city, had been ill with pneumonia.
MPs from both sides of the House offered condolences to Mr Peniston’s family.
A police spokesman said that Mr Peniston was spotted lying in Parliament Street near its junction with Front Street by officers on mobile patrol about 9.30pm on Wednesday.
He was rushed to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, but later died.
The police spokesman added: “Foul play has been ruled out in Mr. Peniston’s passing. May he rest in peace.”
