Re­pu­di­ate Sa­muda and those like him

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & .COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: I WOULD like to com­mend An­dré Wright, opin­ion ed­i­tor of The Gleaner, for his excellent Public Af­fairs col­umn ti­tled ‘Sa­muda’s land grab­bers’, pub­lished on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 23, 2016.

Re­gard­less of our po­lit­i­cal be­liefs, per­sua­sion, and in­cli­na­tion, more well-think­ing Ja­maicans need to get up and sup­port law and or­der. That is the only way that the ‘pros­per­ity for all’ promised in the last gen­eral elec­tion by the Ja­maica Labour Party is go­ing to be achieved.

Mr Sa­muda, the minister of in­dus­try, com­merce, agri­cul­ture and fish­eries, and all others who think and speak and be­have like him, need to be re­minded that it is only when all Ja­maicans, rich and poor alike, are helped to see and recog­nise that there is more to life than land grab­bing, in­dis­ci­pline, and law­less­ness in this land that crime, hu­man traf­fick­ing, lotto scam­ming, and bad-mind­ed­ness will cease.

S.T.
