The 73-year-old was admitted to a Kingston facility last Monday suffering from what his family has described as complications related to a stroke he suffered in October 2018.

“He will be released once he’s stabilised, which includes some amount of rehab,” his manager, Maxine Stowe, told The Gleaner on Sunday.

Born Neville Livingston, Bunny Wailer formed The Wailers along with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.

Since the 2018 stroke, the ailing artiste has been to Cuba for treatment and has continued his rehabilitation in Jamaica. The stroke affected the right side of his body.

He was last seen on stage in February when he accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association.

“Jah B [also] continues to be affected by the ambiguous loss of his life partner, Jean Watt, as the desperate search for her continues,” Stowe said in a press statement.

A night of real reggae with Bunny, the last Wailer standingWatt, the entertainer’s partner of 50 years, has been missing since May 23.

Stowe said that the Livingston and Watt families, along with the authorities and a private investigator, continue to investigate all reported sightings of the missing woman.

“[Bunny Wailer] has battened down and overcome many sentences in his personal and creative life, and we hope that his unique spiritual, creative, and personal contribution to humanity stands predominant in these choppy waters,” said Stowe.
