Re­ject don cul­ture

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Prime Min­is­ter An­drew Hol­ness has told cit­i­zens to re­ject the phe­nom­e­non of dons and area lead­ers in their com­mu­ni­ties. “The only pro­tec­tor of the com­mu­nity must be the Gov­ern­ment of Ja­maica, the po­lice force and Je­sus Christ, the Almighty Saviour. We don’t need any dons and crim­i­nals to pro­tect us,” he em­pha­sised.

He was ad­dress­ing the 12th an­nual Heal the Fam­ily, Heal the Na­tion fast­ing ser­vice at the Na­tional Arena on Wed­nes­day.

Hol­ness said crime is the great­est threat to the econ­omy and urged per­sons to dis­tance them­selves from fam­ily mem­bers and spouses who are in­volved in crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity.

“Now is the time when law-abid­ing, God­fear­ing Ja­maicans must turn their backs on the crim­i­nals. Don’t let them sur­vive in your com­mu­nity. Don’t give them safe haven in your com­mu­nity,” he urged.

He fur­ther called on the church to sup­port the Gov­ern­ment in the fight against the ris­ing lev­els of crime and vi­o­lence in the coun­try.
