Opposition Spokesperson on National Security Mr. Derrick Smith is alarmed at significant rise in murders for October, the highest in years and is calling of Minister Bunting to not squander the gains Jamaica has made.
According to Mr. Smith, “There could be more than 100 murders in October and that is the highest in several years. I don’t know if the minister is distracted but this needs serious attention”.
Opposition Spokesman on Industry, Investment, Commerce, Energy & Mining, Mr. Karl Samuda, is expressing regret and sadness at the passing of renown business leader, and President of the Jamaica Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Francis "Paco" Kennedy.
Our annual commemoration of Heritage Week is an important point on the national calendar; culminating in the observance of Heroes’ Day and the conferment of national honours and awards on deserving Jamaicans.
