As a member of the Mawbey family, I unreservedly forgive Jimmy Governor, his wife Ethel and others who participated in the murder of my great grandmother and three of her children.I believe that Jimmy was provoked by Mrs Mawbey's offensive behaviour towards Ethel and himself.
This mistreatment, on top of all the other putdowns by white people that Jimmy had experienced, was the last straw that broke the camel's back.
He expressed remorse for his actions, and believed God would forgive him.
Requesit in pace.
