Writer defends “snipe” post on Facebook

The writer of a Facebook post that was taken as a threat against then Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, has defended the post.

Saint Lucia Police, shortly after the posting, had announced that there would be an investigation.

In the message, which was posted the day before the last elections,   the writer had asserted that if the labour party won, which it would not, she would be alive to see a Prime Minister get “sniped.”

However the writer, who goes by a female name, has said that the comments regarding Doctor Kenny Anthony and Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidate, Ernest Hilaire were malignantly and maliciously misconstrued to suggest that they were treasonous.


“I Kisha Joseph, categorically declare that neither my posts or intention were delivered as a result of ill-intended motives,“ the writer declared in an additional post shortly after the first one that attracted the attention of the police.

The post referenced the second google definition of snipe, which is to make a sly or petty verbal attack.

    I hope this cun artist Allen Chastanet will deliver on the 5 to stay alive. We are now living in an age where John Compton would not have survived a day in office. He would have been torn apart an exposed in media. The election was won by jukebois, sashow, rick wayne, charlie, laura, mr. Chairman, clinton etc. These people used their own personal preference an grievances to transcend hate on Kenny. They portrayed the man as a demon, and were able to woo people to them.

    MR.Chasnet never detailed the replacement tax in terms of the new rate and structure. Now after you cunned the electorate, you will seek advice from CDB and IMF? The very same people who made the recommendations? What if they say it is good or too low? Also Guy and UWP marched because KENNY was making money on the gas. Let me stick a pin on the five to stay alive. Take out the money Kenny was making and bring gas to $6 a gallon.

      Did you see or hear the PM from Antigua Friday…… Well he made promises of the removal of Personal income Tax…..

      Guess what man…… He went to the House informed and advised the parliament the VAT (Antigua Sales Tax) will have to increase by 1 to 2 percentage points to achieve his goal….

      I know Luciana voted a good administration out for 15 cents…….

      Please take note also the social climbers in the Gros Islet area voted against Labour For Free three years of house tax .

      This is not putting county first……. This is putting your pocket first in both cases……

      Miss Hippolyte is by far the better qualified candidate base on a intellectual and academic abilities……. Did they vote country first????? NO!!!!!

      This country first thing is a cloud to tell say nothing your party have lost the elections…

    it seems to me you know everything that’s suppose to happen and not suppose to happen in this country. why didn’t you mention the slp hacks who host and call the talk shows. when those same journalists were hitting King and his administration, what did you have to say? Kenny (omitted) don’t smell for some of you. Be objective, you hack! Y’all are looking forward for the country’s downfall when y’all party is not in power smh. Are you putting country first? Just because y’all like red or yellow, that’s all y’all see. Wait and see what Chastenet and his team will do, then criticize if you have to. Although by the look of things, you will criticize no matter if you have streets of gold coming into your home. HACK!!!

      This is what I will say to you…. If you join any organization you must have faith in it!!!

      The minute you lost that faith or confidence you remove yourself….. To call one a hack because his or her conviction is dear to them is a way out for you to create negative vibes.

      People are no longer moved with the term. It is well accepted by both party personnel.

      I am of the view that UWP and SLP supporters has a right to position their party in the best light.

      If you think calling anyone of them Hack and you will get them to go away or remain quiet, you have just lost a battle and a war…….

      People I say to you all (UWP/SLP) it is your country keep making your points in favour of your party… It can be UWP or SLP….. Enjoy your back and forth…

      Politics has no friends. It is a cruel business. IF you don’t want to see blood please don’t become a surgeon.

      This is about the positioning of the writers party (UWP/SLP)….. For those of you that want to be middle of the road wait on polling day…..

      The campaign has started all over again and the voice of both sides must seen as true democracy….

      For those of you that keeping complaining about give the country chance to breath it is the job of the administration to creat the environment.

      If they implement programs that a rewarding them the debate will tone down…

    I remember vividly immediately after SLP formed the new government in 2011, supporters of the UWP began their campaign to kick Kenny out. I recall making the comments “when will this thing end”?
    Its means therefore we are no no longer going to have a government for two consecutive terms.
    Uwp supporters must accept that they will b pressured in return. So this BS about let the fellas govern will never hold water.
    Chastanet lead many protest marches for seeming problems which he now has to solve .
    Boss man i will like 30 plus thousand who voted Slp be unrelenting in fighting to see change.

    It looks like this elections will be talk about till the next elections. However,we have to remember that IMF came and they recommended that Kenny should let some civil servant go,but he didn’t he found another alternative to keep them. An astronomical amount of money is paid to civil servants alone,when vat is decrease how will the government survive,unless some are redundant. And when the government in power can’t comply with their initial promise with in the 5yrs they are kicked out,so how will st.Lucia move forward because of this trend.

    I do not understand what the preoccupation with getting the most likes, shares and comments for writing nonsense is….because that must be the only reason you wrote that crap if you say you did not mean it the way the rest of the world took it.

    Then you coming and telling people about 2nd definition in google….Please…get a life!!!!! Shame on you!!

    All that hate! I wish the new PM all the best! It’s my country too! Acceptance is key to moving on moving on people! Hating isn’t going to change the fact that the then opposition is now in power…,let’s wait and see………..

    When will this Kisha be made to shut up. Surely this is not expected nor accepted in civil society. When will citizens of this country say enough is enough….when Guy Joseph is spoken of in the same manner?
