I do not know all the facts and because of my location, I am relying on circumstantial evidence. The saga that is taking place in St. Vincent and the Grenadines with a young woman who alleges that there was an affair with the son of the Prime Minister. Premarital and extramarital affairs have been on the landscape of St. Vincent and the Grenadines way before I was born and it continues to be a part of the society.
However, there are some issues that need to be cleared and in my opinion, were taken too far. The alleged words that were used by the defendant to the wife of the minister’s wife were taken overboard. There are other serious crimes in SVG that the police are overlooking and to charge a young woman for those simple words has taken the matter too far. The allegations which are of a sexual nature or part of a relationship with the son is another story. I do not see any defense there, you either were in the relationship and it failed and both parties have moved on.
To use the allegations to call for the minister’s resignation is absurd and unwarranted. Until there is proof that all the other ministers and senators are proven to be “PERFECT” I will cave in and join the fray. The main issue is that young woman whose life has gone in shambles and is subjected to mental torture. This woman spoke the language of the society and like many others who would say more vile things among their colleagues and are roaming the streets. Have the police launched an investigation into the “thieving” of goods from the patients at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital? Isn’t that a more serious offense that the justice department and the police service should be concern about doing a proper investigation. (Although thieving was the norm in SVG for decades) So that is nothing new to the ears of neutral.
