Minister Cudjoe pays tribute to volleyballer Ayanna Dyette

Sport Minister Shamfa Cudjoe has extended her condolences to the family and friends of former national volleyball player, Ayanna Dyette, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 32. 

Dyette, who lost her battle with cervical cancer, was known for being an ardent and professional volleyballer who represented Trinidad and Tobago at the international level, having participated in the NORCECA beach circuit from 2010 to 2015 and at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.  She also participated at the FIVB world tour which was held in USA. 

Minister Cudjoe said, “Ayanna’s passing is truly a shock to the entire volleyball fraternity.  She was a true patriot and her passion and dedication to the sport of volleyball would surely be remembered. Trinidad and Tobago has lost a gem.  I extend my sincerest condolences to her family and friends at this time.  May she rest in peace.”

She also offered her sympathies with the family and loved ones of Muhammed Isa, who died on Monday. Isa was a veteran in the football fraternity and served as Technical Director of the Pro League and Director of Football with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF).  

As a former football coach, his assiduousness contributed to the development of football in South Trinidad. 

“Indeed the local football fraternity has lost a powerful icon. His countless contributions to the development of football in Trinidad and Tobago would certainly be remembered.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. May he rest in peace.” Minister Cudjoe said.
