As the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) marks its second anniversary in office, opposition leader Allen Chastanet has declared that the country is in fear.
“They have put this country in a state of fear. People are fearful to leave their homes Tim, after certain hours,” Chastanet observed Monday during the call-in programme Newsspin with host Timothy Poleon.
The Micoud South MP said people are afraid to travel to certain places and have become fearful of speaking their mind and what is taking place in Saint Lucia, including the cost of living increases.
According to the United Workers Party (UWP) leader, people are ‘literally’ in constant fear.
He said fear was the SLP’s legacy during its two years in office.
“It is getting to the point where you and I and everybody else can sense that something is going to break. People cannot be expected to live in a state of fear as we are,” the former Prime Minister asserted.
He said the government’s breach of trust was fuelling fear.
