Well-known Vigie resident Richard Peterkin has hit the road, imitating Gros Islet MP Kenson Casimir.
This after a photo of the MP lying on Daren Sammy Drive in his constituency went viral on social media.
“Oh, how I wish I could snap a finger and get all of the roads in Gros Islet to look like this right now! We will get there,” Casimir wrote under his photo on Facebook.
After the MP’s post racked up many likes and remarks, Richard Peterkin took it lying down and decided to engage in some road rave.
“He got so many notifications and remarks on his post that I am envious, so I decided to show off our road in Vigie that was resurfaced in 2020 before the elections,” Peterkin wrote on Facebook.
“Fresh asphalt is what Jamaicans call ‘carpet,’ and we got ours long before Kenson got his road built, thanks to the heavy roller,’ the Vigie resident noted.
The heavy roller was an apparent reference to Castries North MP, Stephenson King.
King serves as Infrastructure Minister in the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) Cabinet.
Peterkin said he hoped the response to Casimir’s post would motivate the Gros Islet MP to lay fresh ‘carpet’ all over Saint Lucia.
