“The outreach has been tremendous for the support of Keita's family and friends. She touched the lives of many and her spirit will live on.

“Life is precious and she was precious to many people.”

She added: “My love and support are with the family including her two beautiful sons and the many people who loved and cared for her.”

A PLP spokeswoman said: “The Progressive Labour Party family was saddened to learn of the sudden death of Keita Wilson.

She added Ms Wilson's “guidance and support was instrumental in the victory” in St George's South.

The spokeswoman said: “Additionally, Ms Wilson volunteered her assistance in the past at the PLP gala.
