      Beloved, I don’t know you in person but God knows you. God ministered to me in a revelation when I was on your profile to see things around you, I saw blessings but spiritual attacks holding onto them, in prayers, I saw a woman in the realm of the spirit monitoring and plotting delay in your life, with an evil mirror, and with a motive to destroy. But as I speak to you now her time is up, Render hand of favor with Anything you can afford or give to this motherless foundation (Godstime MOTHERLESS FOUNDATION) in kebbi state Nigeria before 2DAYS with faith, as I Rise my hands towards heaven and pray for you they shall serve as a point of contact wherever you are, you will receive a double portion of grace to excel and total restoration of a breakthrough in your life and the life of your family. Ask for their acct details and help them call the MD in charge of the orphanage to get their details on (WhatsApp or call them now on +2349132889707) tell him I sent you. For it is not by might nor by in power but of the spirit saith the Lord (Zechariah 4:6). You shall testify to the Glory of God in your life. God bless you in Jesus name

  7. Understand this whole negative mind set starts from home so they grow up thinking its ok to do whatever, Lack of self respect, Lack of education also play a role in the men thinking because you smile and say hello its an open door for you to touch, Something definitely need to be done to help them.

  9. I think they loan thier car when not operating public route. You will always have some guys getting cars to run route to carry public passengers and they do crazy things.

    I agree with Dr. Liakim’s assessment…it is engrained in the culture. Most Jamaican men do not understand that even words spoken to women can be received as sexual harassment; let alone a touch. When I moved from Jamaica to the US, I immediately noticed that American men would try to talk to you, but they don’t touch you (grab your arm, hold onto your bag etc). They know that’s a line you do not cross. Of course, there are sexual harassment cases here, but culturally men are aware of the risk if they cross the line.

      Most Jamaican men? There are just about 1.3 million males in Jamaica, most of us practice sexual harassment as a culture? That’s utter bs… Show us the stats that back up this statement.

    Jamaica woman if you don’t want di man don’t take is money and Jamaica don’t not kill out your queen Jamaican girl and boys please leave badness

  12. I was harassed by a male because he said hi and I told him that hey but I wasn’t able to speak and can you believe that man promised mi a box literally! I had to file a report.
    Additionally, men in the work place exhibit this sort of behavior, it is not only out there in the public space, it is everywhere.

    Some strict rule need to be implemented for men to stop this kind of behavior.

    The wisest thing that should be on every wise individuals list is to invest in different stream of income that don’t depend on the government to bring money especially now the pandemic is hitting economy pretty hard .

      I lost €1200 carelessly trading on a platform then I was referred to Blian Reinkensmeyer, he helped me recover the loss and made an extra profit of €6,600

    • Ruth Koivisto | April 8, 2021 at 3:18 PM | Reply

      I realized that Trading without a professional like expert Blian Reinkensmeyer is like gambling with your money

    • I am from Jamaica, I heard about him too in YouTube and I connected with him, right now he manages my investments and I trust my investment only with him expert Blian. He’s the best you can have

      I invested Β£3,000 with Mr Blian Reinkensmeyer after I met him at a conference in London, he made me profit of €22,790 in just 7-14 days of trade with him and I invested more

    • At first my husband never believed it, but now he loves it, trading happens to be the best ever in my family all thanks to Mr Blian Reinkensmeyer

    3.11 like the man just said he finds it hard to believe this is why we’ve got the problems we’ve got this mentality what do you find hard to believe because it’s actually happening

    Sexual harassment does not just happen with taxi drivers, it happens on the streets, in the work place, everywhere etc

  17. Jowanne Jackson | April 8, 2021 at 3:18 PM | Reply

    Perhaps taxi drivers should be required to go thru annual sensitivity training in order to renew license or get new license. Unfortunately if things don’t change women from abroad are going to think twice about vacationing in Jamaica

    Big problem in Jamaica. Was just talking about this with a friend yesterday. Disrespectful men standing on street corners in town centres blurting out all forms of obscenities to women when they are passing by, if they disrespectfully call out to them and they walk on and mind their own business. The obscenities are unbelievable, dem dutty bad wod. There should be laws and stiff penalties against this type of behaviour.
