Greetings this is Kennedy Roberts the Deputy Chairman of the National Democratic Congress and spokesperson with responsibility for Health and Social Security. This is a response to the address made by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell on Monday, 14th December 2020, pertaining to the current spread in Grenada.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is deeply concerned that the Government is deliberately allowing its dispute with unions representing public workers and teachers, over the Government’s 2018 immoral and wrongful docking of salaries of their members, to linger on and on. All to the detriment of our students and national productivity.
In principle, the NDC has no difficulty with upgrading our infrastructure. After all, that is part of the role and function of Government. Recently, the Government borrowed just over $180,000,000.00 ($180m) in secret for expansion of the MBIA. There are more questions than answers, and several concerns with this loan, that go beyond its mere size and justification.
