George HW Bush no more

December 1, 2018

Former US President George HW Bush has died at the age of 94. A spokesperson on behalf of the family said, George Bush Sr, as he was known, passed away on Friday evening.

He was the 41st US president between 1989 and 1993, after serving two terms as vice-president to Ronald Reagan.

Despite achieving popularity ratings of 90%, he was accused of neglecting domestic affairs and was defeated by Bill Clinton in the 1992 election.

In April, he was admitted to a hospital intensive care unit with an infection, a week after the death of his wife Barbara.
