Gonsalves Says Police Making Headway In Fatal Shootings Probe


Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has disclosed that the police are making headway in investigating the fatal shooting of five people in the capital, Kingstown, last week.

“The police have picked up some persons and I believe that they will probably be widening the net from my conversation with the Commissioner,” Gonsalves said on state-owned NBC.

Gonsalves, also responsible for National Security, disclosed that his country was seeking technical assistance from the Regional Security System (RSS) and the Canadian authorities.

He assured that he and the government were resolute in fighting crime and criminals.

“We are not going to allow a handful of people to generate or engender fear,” the Vincentian Prime Minister declared.

He said that was the reason he was happy to see people going about their business.

And Gonsalves urged the cooperation of citizens in fighting back against criminals.

  1. Pierre here is a page from the book of leadership. The PM from SVG is actually demonstrating some leadership skills. I suggest you take a page from his book. No one is blaming him for what happen in SVG but it is his duty to comfort the public and update them directly.

    Leadership skills at play in SVG.

  2. Ralph do not have the capacity to create the environment for the people to progress just like the politicians in st lucia as over 80 percent of private sector workers earn 3 EC dollars an hour
