Laventille East/Morvant MP
Donna Cox wants Minister of Com-
munity Development Winston
Peters to give her and residents of
her constituency a reason for the
stoppage of work on the Morvant
Central community centre.
At a press conference yesterday
at her constituency office, Cox said
she was confused as to why con-
struction on the centre, at the corner
of Caimete and Cipriani Streets,
Morvant, had been stopped.
She said what was even more puz-
zling was that a sod-turning cere-
mony for the centre took place last
week Monday to signal the start of
She said Peters also was present
at the ceremony and pledged his
ministry's continued co-operation
However, over the weekend Cox
received a call while out of the coun-
try, stating the contractor had
stopped further building of the centre
and all equipment was removed from
"Note that we have been waiting
for 22 years for this centre to be
rebuilt because there was a centre
on the site before," said Cox.
She said on Tuesday night she
met with key stakeholders in the
community to find out what really
led to the stoppage, as initially she
kept receiving conflicting stories.
She discovered that someone
took a deed to the contractor,
Imcon Enterprises, stating he was
the legal occupier of the land and
wanted to be a part of the planning
process regarding the centre. Cox
said, however, when she received
a copy of the 12-page deed it stated
that in 1945 when the centre was
first constructed the land was
leased in 1959 to a community
group called the Morvant Com-
munity Welfare Association.
She said the lease had since
expired and the group no longer
existed, therefore, she could not
understand how with an expired
deed and a defunct organisation
construction was still halted.
Cox said as an MP she felt dis-
respected that to date no one has
offered an explanation even after
she made contact with Peters'
She added: "What I would like
is the Minister of Community
Development to tell me why work
on this centre has stopped.
"Up to now, no one has con-
tacted me or any member of my
executive. As the Member of Par-
liament for my area I have been
agitating for the construction of
"As a matter of fact on June 2,
I met with the minister and he
told me that they intended to build
"Now there is stoppage of work
and no one in the ministry has
seen it fit to call me and explain
the situation on the stoppage of
the community centre after waiting
She said there was no commu-
nity centre in her constituency and
meetings or community events
were usually held at schools or
even at the homes of residents
from time to-time.
"This is an extremely serious
matter and it is very disrespectful
to me and the residents of this
community," added Cox.
The T&T Guardian learned the
National Maintenance Training
and Security Company Ltd (MTS)
was acting the role of project man-
ager of the construction.
Efforts to contact Peters up to
late yesterday were unsuccessful
as calls to his cellphone went
unanswered. Text and voice mes-
sages were also not returned.

According to Laventille
chairman Jefferey Reyes, the
original Morvant Central
Community Centre was built in
1945 and was the country's
first community centre. It also
produced the first school-

Making its maiden voyage to Tobago
on Monday night, the MV Super Fast
Galicia is expected to assist with cargo
capacity and reliability along the route.
The approximate voyage time
between ports is five-and-a-half hours.
According to Chief Secretary of the
Tobago House of Assembly (THA),
Orville London, the introduction of
the new vessel would bring savings on
transport costs and would positively
affect the cost of living and other com-
modities in Tobago.
In a release, London hoped those
savings would be passed on to the peo-
ple of Tobago.
Deputy Chief Secretary and Secretary
of Tourism and Transportation, Tracy
Davidson-Celestine, also hoped the
vessel would bring greater predictability
and reliability and also would help to
promote increased passenger move-
ment between T&T.
Transport Minister Stephen Cadiz
said the Galicia had twice as much
cargo-carrying capacity as the 35-year-
old MV Warrior Spirit which meant it
could easily transport cement and other
Cadiz said the Government had
chartered the vessel for 12 months at
a cost of $48 million while efforts were
made to determine the size and capac-
ity of a new vessel to be bought.
