Patsy Calliste says she is
ready to go out with her "Black
Man" and party, but doctors
at the San Fernando General
Hospital are telling her to
"wait, Patsy wait, Patsy wait."
Calliste said there was further
improvement beyond that seen
a week ago after her husband,
Dr Leroy Calliste, better known
as Black Stalin, suffered a minor
stroke. However, he was still
not out of the woods as yet.
In an interview, Calliste said
doctors were continuing to
monitor him and conducting a
series of tests.
"He is coming along, we are
seeing improvements. He is
moving his hands, though not
all the way."
The stroke has affected Stalin,
73, on the right side of his body.
His wife again expressed her
gratitude for the love and sup-
port of the public and again
called for restraint as far as the
number of visitors to his bedside
at the hospital.
"Too many people are still
coming and when he is finished
talking to them he is experi-
encing a shortness of breath."
She said he was getting excel-
lent care at the hospital and she
did not want him moved to a
She said she expected he
would be discharged sometime
later this week.
Stalin continues to improve

In the past, there
were weak mayors in
San Fernando, but
strong CEO s.
But today, the prob-
lem is that there is now
a strong mayor and
council and a weak
So said San Fernando
mayor Kazim Hosein
during Tuesday s meeting of the San Fernando City
Council at City Hall, San Fernando.
"I have always believed to have a clean city, you
must have a good team," he said. "In the past, we
saw weak mayors in San Fernando but strong CEO s.
Now its the opposite, you have a strong mayor and
council and weak administration."
Hosein was speaking on claims that there were
workers at the corporation that collect a salary for
"There are a lot of hard workers here but there
are those who just want to get bribes and do noth-
ing," said Kazim. "Mr CEO you are new here, you
need to get administration in order."
Hosein was addressing the calls of Marabella
West councillor, La Verne Smith to clean up the
Marabella river. Directing his queries to acting city
engineer, Nathoo Heeraman, Hosein enquired about
machines owned by the corporation.
"This is ridiculous that we have to beg to get this
river cleaned," said Hosein. "What about the two
bobcats at Carib Street?"
Heeraman told him that both machines have
been identified as unserviceable, stating he was in
possession of a report that stated the machines
were never used before as there were no operators.
Deputy mayor Junia Regrello told the council he
met two men claiming to be machine operators at
Carib Street complex on a number of occasions.
"I met two men who told me they are operators
for the bobcats," said Regrello. "They said they have
never driven the machines but they come to work
everyday and get paid."

San Fernando mayor Kazim Hosein said on
Tuesday that his office was broken into and a
file with a list of names of individuals who defied
city regulations was stolen.
Hosein was speaking at a council s meeting.
"I was compiling a file of those who were com-
mitting ills in the city, breaking codes and reg-
ulations," said Hosein. "Until somebody broke into
my office here and stole it, now I keep my files
When questioned by members of the media
about the theft, Hosein said it happened a few
months ago and the perpetrator was never held.
"The person broke the lock off the door and
took the file, a few months ago, when no one else
was here," he said. "A police report was made and
I did inform the CEO, but no one was ever held."
Hosein said he was not daunted by the crime
or the loss of his "little black book"
made him more cautious in his everyday life.
"I keep all of my files at home now, I know they
are safe there," he said.
CEO of the corporation, Indarjit Singh, said he
was told of the situation and as a result, the council
was considering placing cameras throughout the
"We are looking into placing some cameras up
here," said Singh, gesturing to the mayor s office.
"We can t have this happening again." (SR)
