      Never heard of eight and seven year old children comitting suicide, what forensic examination been carried out on these children? Speaking of the bridge that has been broken for over six months now and no sign of it being repaired, did the voters in that area voted for the representative now in parliament, or has the parliamentarin for that area lost his her seat. You vote for someone who has the interest of the community in mind, not someone who kept on making promises and never fufiling them.

    • All them money the government thief could do good now for the schools

    How on earth this brilliant former wall street money man finds himself in this hostile environment?
    He is going end up same way like all the other young finance ministers of the past.

    How is the Government is going to lower the CURVE OF THE COVID -19 when the Health Minister DOES NOT provide any OUTLET for the CITIZENS to go and do the COVID TEST. Mr TUFTON,WHERE SHOULD THE CITIZENS OF JAMAICA GO TO GET THEIR COVID TEST? SHAMEFUL.

  17. Incompetence, where were the engineers, and architectural planning before such a massive road development ? Come on guys ,get with the program. Be proactive, and not reactive, next time work with a consulting engineer, and also obtain warranty from the road builders.then you’ll get proficiency.

  18. What happens to St Thomas highway
