The Wal­lid Juf­fali Af­fair

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Rick, I could have felt the glim­mer of mis­chief in your eyes as you wrote this piece. Al­ways in­ter­est­ing to read your take on is­sues which oth­ers in the me­dia sim­ply take at face value.

I re­ally did not un­der­stand what all the brouhaha was about in the news last week as to who was pay­ing Ja­dia and whether Jade was qual­i­fied. The op­po­si­tion and the cit­i­zens of this coun­try have a lot more per­ti­nent is­sues to fo­cus on.

el­derly in Saint Lu­cia and even our an­i­mals. If we con­tinue this way His­tory will be un­kind to us and Mother Na­ture’s fury will not spare us.

It is a sad when th­ese kids are shown to­ken ap­pre­ci­a­tion at Christ­mas time by the govern­ment and some cor­po­rate en­ti­ties and for the rest of the year they are for­got­ten. We need to get our pri­or­i­ties right in Saint Lu­cia.

Like the writer says, this is some­thing ev­ery sin­gle Saint Lu­cian must take re­spon­si­bil­ity for. This is not about any govern­ment or leader; this is about us and we must act now to clean up our sur­round­ings, neigh­bour­hoods, com­mu­ni­ties, pub­lic places, parks, rivers, beaches, road­sides. We can do it.

- Marco Polo Lord Mans­field would be proud of the STAR Per­son of the Year 2015!

Thank you Lor­raine for stand­ing tall as a proud Saint Lu­cian woman. You are an in­spi­ra­tion to many young Saint Lu­cian women like my­self.

With due re­spect to the Bri­tish judges who main­tain that they are un­aware of Walid Juf­fali hav­ing any mar­itime ex­pe­ri­ence, I would point out that he is em­i­nently qual­i­fied in his post as Saint Lu­cia’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Or­gan­i­sa­tion; just con­sider all the ex­pe­ri­ence he must have gained while cruis­ing the seas on lux­ury yachts. I am an ex­pert kite flyer so if Kenny An­thony would be kind enough to ad­ver­tise the next avi­a­tion-re­lated post, es­pe­cially if it comes with diplo­matic im­mu­nity, then I shall be proud to step for­ward and serve this coun­try, even though I am a for­eigner.
