"From this instant
on, vow to stop dis-
from the mob. Decide
to be extraordinary
and do what you need
to do now."
Contractor Kenroy Dopwell yes-
terday admitted he is a director on
two wholly-owned state enterpris-
es---the New City Mall and East Side
Plaza, Port-of-Spain, which fall
under the remit of the Ministry of
Housing and Urban Development
once managed by Marlene McDon-
Azard R Mohammed It just gets
better and better!
V Sankarsingh Popcorn anyone?
Mark John Hamel-Smith No
surprise there...but is he qualified to
be on one let alone two?
Mona Seebaran Taxpayers mon-
ey jumping up with steel pan music!
Gale CB And is so the cookie
Holly Belfon So what? The man
can't be ah business man. This s---
is getting ridiculous now.
Riyaaz Ramkissoon What quali-
fication he has to be on a state board?
Leba Maria Benjamin Well look
thing! All the bacchanal coming out
Jason Villafana So exactly how
long this mall there? Is it not a grass-
root oriented mall? Should the 1%
own all malls and have a particular
people on the boards? Smh
Jamilia Wallace Is Dopwell under
investigation? If he is not why can't
he be on a state board?
Carlyle Modeste So wait, Dr
Monilal telling us that Burke never
existed under the PP administration
reign and none of his ministerial col-
leagues associated with him?
Ray D Brooks So there are per-
sons on state boards and you all have
no idea what their background is.
$15,000 bail for
Rayad Mohammed, the man who
allegedly issued a threat against the
wife and daughter of Prime Minister
Dr Keith Rowley, via a Facebook post
has pleaded not guilty to a criminal
Raj Sum So after over 200+ mur-
ders this year and record breaking
murders last year, we now know
the only real victim that this Gov-
ernment concerned with is itself ...
While I disagree with Rayad posting,
it is a crying shame that this is what
our TTPS and Government focusing
on.Jobless T&T They take five days
to give a man a $200 charge but up to
now can't find the double murder-
Arlene Portia Grant Can we
please move on!
Pavel K Quamie I must admit
though that all this for such a small
fine does seem a bit excessive.
Kareem Hollingsworth $15,000
bail for a 200 dollar offence.
Lystra Blessed Nedd When you
are disrespectful you need to be pun-
Pamela Jagdeo A bad choice of
words for this man, what he was try-
ing to say if these crimes happen to
those in charge then they might do
Sheena Maharaj Y don't they
stop playing Facebook police an look
for the real killers and criminals out
The two foreigners appeared be-
fore a Port-of-Spain magistrate
yesterday, less than a week after
two other Bulgarian nationals were
arrested and charged with similar
Nikkie Yearwood Trinidad is a
Charlene Su-Ann Seow Well
done TTPS ....thank you for catching
these criminals.... Immigration can
you all please deport these people
José Carlos Oliveira These kind
of crimes are very common in Eu-
rope for Bulgarians, Romanians,
Croatians and Russians. People in
Europe are well informed about this
activity and how to identity the so
called tricks of trade and they get
better every day.
Bernadette Moore They trave-
led to a Third World country to run
Réjeanne Aimey Who are they,
why are they there, and how were
they functioning if they can't speak
Josanne Yorke Guess they feeling
like a fool after believing Trini people
really as backward as they thought.
Carolyn Lezama Rivera We need
Donald Trump down here to make
Trinidad "Great Again"!
Over 2,000 pupils
scored below 30%
Education Minister Anthony
Garcia and Minister in the Ministry
of Education Dr Lovell Francis said
there was "no mischief" involved
as they sought to allay the fears of
parents, some of whom took to social
media to vent about the school their
child was assigned after results were
announced on Tuesday.
Jasmin R Seetahal Is this a true
statement? I know children with
82% and above and were placed in
schools that is required 30%. Can u
please clear this?
Sarah Lucess I know of a school
were 32 pupils repeating due to low
Harry Ramharack Today's edu-
cational system is job oriented and
to earn a livelihood. Those students
scoring below 30% will have to earn
a livelihood after leaving school.
School drop-outs have been with us
all the time. Everybody cannot be-
come a minister of education.
Jake C Gosine Maybe the fail-
ures academically can thrive with
hands on training in vocational pro-
grammes. Find more methods at ed-
ucating the children than just fitting
them into schools, or making them
repeat the same test they can't pass.
I'm sure T&T got qualified people
in whatever field is needed to guide
the children to a path of success. Not
everybody can be doctor, lawyer, re-
Jacqueline Benjamin I am just
fed up of these parents who are the
ones who make their children feel
they are not worthy if they are not
placed in a so-called prestige sec-
ondary school. It was the same when
there were the Junior Secs. Parents,
it is not about marks, it is not about
the schools your children are placed
in, it is about the work they put in
while attending whatever school and
about the support you give them.
