MARLENE BACK, HINDS SHUFFLED AGAIN
Former Housing Minister
Marlene McDonald is set for a re-
turn to Prime Minister Dr Keith
Rowley's Cabinet today. This
after Rowley Wednesday night
informed President Anthony
Carmona to appoint McDonald
as the new Minister of Public
Utilities in what was a minor re-
shuffling of his Cabinet.
McDonald had become the first
casualty of the PNM Government
last March when she was fired by
Rowley after the Integrity Commis-
sion started an investigation into
allegations of wrongdoing made
against her. The Integrity Commis-
sion probe is still pending.
Niyla Niri Maraj: Have a safe and
blessed day Ms Marlene McDonald.
Ryan Steinberg Jr: Hinds is a
casualty of incompetence.
Link Lalsingh: Very disrespect-
ful to the people of this country to
put her as a minister once again.
Thought he took a stand against cor-
ruption or allegations of it? Or was
he waiting till the heat died off to
bring her back?
Vashty Goberdhan: Reshuffle
will not solve anything---just the
same old incompetent waste-a-time
Kenny Supersad: We need the
Syrian community in cabinet.
Rondel Ramlochan: All how he
trying with them!
Naila Gosine: Omg, this is drama
Gordon Dalla Costa: What's the
difference between bringing back
Marlene and bringing back Anil?
San Fernando businessman Greg-
ory Laing was snatched by kidnap-
pers this morning and a $250,000
ransom has been demanded for his
Melina Hutchinson: The police
have to nip this in the bud. We don't
want any kidnappings to start up
again. The anti-kidnapping squad
had brought kidnappings to zero
previously, I don't know if they are
still a unit after Kamla and band dis-
mantled all the crime fighting initia-
tives of the PNM government.
Madonna Brandon: Check the
demons who attacked Father Har-
vey! They had similar ambitions!
Phillippa Chevalier: Put the
make, model an colour of the car out
immediately so it can get the public
attention, as it helps.
Alfredo Ferran: Wow, well it
looks like we are going back to kid-
napping. Where are the road blocks?
Josie Ache-De Goulard: This is
really RIDICULOUS NOW. Enough
is enough! This one way too close to
home for my comfort level---a prom-
inent Sando Family that many of us
have grown up with and respect, pil-
lars of our community.
Bandits slit throats
of woman, teen
The community of Malabar was
struggling last evening to come to
terms with the brutal murder of a
56-year-old woman and a teenag-
er. Police believe the killing of Rose
Mohammed, 56, and her 13-year-old
neighbour Videsh Subar may have
been linked to an old robbery in
which the men were jailed and re-
cently from released prison.
Roshni Deo: I feel it so much for
his parents and him, knowing what
torture this sweet child endured and
for the rest of his parents lives. How
can a parent come to terms with
this? I'm so, so sorry. May God be
Shane Hospedales: Madness.
Rena Boodram: Sad, monsters.
Mona Seebaran: What the PM
should do is to get the criminal jus-
tice system functioning with honest
competent staff. At the moment the
whole justice system is in shambles.
The criminals know they can't be
caught and literally getting away
Maliah Alexander: Since the
powers that be failing the popula-
tion, the only solution is that the cit-
izens have to revolt. We cannot con-
tinue to live in constant fear. Anyone
who thinks that they are somehow
safe is this blood-drenched place is
delusional. Enough is enough.
Carolee Lewis: And instead of
the people coming out in thousands
to protest in front of the Governor
mansion, the Prime Minister resi-
dence, the Mayor residence and the
Red House, they worrying about
what the Syrian man said about the
haves and the have not. Trinidad is
now one of the murderous capital of
the world, worry about that!
Chinese mart owner
killed after resisting
Tired of being robbed, proprietor
Yana Zeng is believed to have strug-
gled with two men who held up her
mini-mart on Tuesday night. For her
resistance she was fatally shot by one
of the bandits.
Odin Thoor: Bandits are now
making a much bolder statement...
these young idiots with nothing to
do.Mona Seebaran: Nothing pos-
itive is coming out of T&T but
sadness and grief. How much more
could the citizens bear?
Nila Mahase Maharaj: The
Pat Godin: Our deepest sym-
pathies go out to your family and
friends. May God give you all the
peace that you seek. We are deeply
