million dollars Regional Director of a Northeast Regional Authority baby alam
says the buses will allow for fucking in more
it is then what currently occurs fucking machine the intent is that it will be a
permanent fixture fixture vehicles so I don’t expect any parishes to be lifting
them out and loading up the backwards DeMint and which torn and gravel or with
workers which is not supposed to be happening the intent is to utilize these
vehicles on your fucking schedule the police are now searching for the taxi
driver involved in an incident yesterday which entered two pedestrians in st.

was seen speeding heading towards the sidewalk before hitting the two
pedestrians however for broadcasting regulation

the taxi driver fled the scene leaving the vehicle behind the extent of the
injury sustained by the pedestrians could not be ascertained a probe is now
underway into the incident opposition leader dr. Peter Phillips is expressing
outrage at comments made by the government that it will not be
responding to corruption allegations speaking with our news team recently dr.
Philips described the action a gross dereliction of duty
image comment by mrs. Spencer that they are not going
to answer about the theft of public resources is a gross dereliction of the
duties of any responsible government and to raise this all bogey about Trafigura
is absolute nonsense if mr. Spencer would take the time to read the judgment
of the courts in Jamaica they made it clear that no laws of Jamaica were
reached in the trafficker matter local information technology company geotech
vision enterprises is lashing out at the government as a contract it has with
alluring Jamaica is about to be terminated the eleven-year-old company
was contracted to provide thousands of tablets for students under the tablets
in Schools program however the Technology Ministry issued a notice of
termination citing failure to deliver g8x Management has refuted the claim
saying it has been awaiting delivery instructions from eLearning
at a press briefing on Wednesday giatec visions ICT manager Steven Wedderburn
questioned the government’s commitment to SMEs and
apologize for that clip and it’s time for a break but stay with us more
stories right after these messages welcome back continuing the news there
are concerns this afternoon that some of the vision 2030 Development Goals set by
the Jamaican government may not be met on time questions were raised at this
week’s Public Accounts Committee meeting following a report from the Auditor
General’s Department about inadequacies at the statistical institute Statten
which has the committee monitoring the country’s progress in meeting the
targets starting noted that a major challenge is in getting funding to carry
out its work we are no designated upper middle-income country and as such our
access to finance enforce survey and data production is much less than it
used to be so what that know has put in focus is that the government of Jamaica
now has to fund these data collection activities and of course there is always
the trade-off in terms of how do we allocate the very scarce resources and
what is the best way to spend the resources that we have as a country the
deputy director-general also noted that work is being done to address a problem
of how data is collected and stored there is the challenge of the fact that
a lot of the administrative data that we have is paper-based and some of these
indicators come from administrative data sources so there is the need to
modernize the public service to digitize some of the information to give us
greater access to data so these are some of the challenges that we have been
facing what we have been working with our partners through the development of
the National Statistics system to try and improve the availability of data for
decision-making and to monitor or progress towards rules in news from the
region 18 Venezuelan nationals including three children were detained by police
trying to enter into Trinidad and Tobago illegally by boat Wednesday morning

Carnegie around 5:35 a.m. representatives from the West India
Western Division intercepted the vessel and a teen at the migrants nine mils and
six females among those detained police have since called in immigration
officials who are expected to question the Venezuelan nationals sources say
they are expected to be deported soon in sports the inter secondary school sport
Association is ISA is adamant that no professional will be allowed to play
school sports the issue came to the fore after Claire and college star player
Lamar waka was belatedly ruled ineligible to help his school defend
their DeCosta cup title parent Madden has the support following an inquiry
from Clarendon College the governing body for school sports gave permission
for Walker to play at the start of the decosta Cup season after their checks

his 92 FM’s girls Sports Club on Wednesday is the president Keith
Wellington revealed that another school protested Walker’s participation
insisting that he was a professional Wellington said that prompted the
Association to conduct another investigation the responses that we got
indicated that a person would it was indeed a professional can’t play obtain
without sign contract and an affiliation I thought what was there for amateurs
not about the affordable he school communicated with that Wellington was
asked whether ISA was obligated to provide proof of Walker’s professional
status no we are not we are not an in this case in this case those who are
affirmed you know with legal wrangling would recognize that plea we have no
right if there are no third or third party has the right to the concept of to

provide a copy of a contract not we are not a part of and with sports
increasingly becoming an avenue of financial independence

  1. Only in JLP time Jamaica have money 💵 fi spend so,
    Ina pnp time if Jamaica nuh borrow money from IMF dem cnt do basic 😂…..

  2. Now you talking! But I wonder how much money we left by then. I look forward to see this happen because the hospital are in poor condition. Rat using the hospital as daycare play ground.
    I didn't hear any money for Savannah Mar. The closest to Negril area. A big facility but poor condition. I was shock to visit a Dr resident to witness the residence house conditions. Those residences haven't had any repairs it decades. Jamaica gov't really treat their most prize workers poorly. The Police stations the same. These two sets of people that is suppose to work to save lives.
    The minister being talking a lot about taking people to court, for leaving their love ones in hospital. What nonsense! You should be advocating to build old age home for your citizens. This is what other Countries do. Then those with some form of property is taken by the government for the individual care.
    This is where your problem comes in now. The lazy governments Title office over the years refuse to issue land title or offer affordable rates for citizens to probate on properties, so this make it impossible for anyone to track who owns what!
    You are creator of your own problem.
    News flash, most of the people in hospital are very poor people, many of those families can barely feed themselves ; much less to render the love and care a sick person requires. The % of people in hospital with able family to care for them is minute.
    Your court cases will never come to fruition. Instead use the law fees to bill nursing homes, better than the present poor houses.

    This is what any responsible Minister who cares about his aging citizens should be talking about. Besides it will not scare anyone, because they cannot afford to keep them and you cannot force them, certainly you are not thinking About elder abuse. It seem all of you are in la la land and you don't seems to understand the desperate poverty conditions your citizens are in.
    Of course none of you wouldn't because they are visited once every 4 to 5 years for vote. You don't have to pay for your food because your ministerial office probably pays for it. Please Go to the grocery store and shop even with tax payers dollar, you will see what I mean. Then tell me how people who works for 7 to 10k can feed themselves and children? I can't even mention school or clothe.
    You ministers are too far removed from your citizens conditions. This is why you can go on world stage to talk RUBBISH!!!!! And steal money that could benefit and up lift your people poor condition. This will continue if they refuse to change their politics🤐🤐🤐.
    Didn't grounds brake for at Regional Children Montego Bay already. I am sure ,I read it before.

  3. Take the money from kanye west that he sells our Jamaica symbol online that is what the government needs to do and stop love too much sweet

  4. Elders still can't get bed to sleep on .have to be sleeping on benches etc . System is a joke stop stealing our hard work money

  5. CARD LABORITE A DRAW! U know they are always holding press conference, always and nothing follow it! Listen to all these money tufton talk about, bet at no time in the future while they are in power Jamaica Don't see that improvement! Shooting or robbery, security minister and his crew police commissioner comes out again walk street camera crew behind, baaaaaay chatting! NOTHING get done! Same ting health minister a do!
