Alvina blasts Ubaldus Raymond over scandal

Former  Minister for Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations, Alvina Reynolds, has blasted Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Doctor Ubaldus Reymond, over the  scandal that has erupted over his alleged nude photographs being posted on social media.

“As a woman, as someone who has taught children and teenagers and young people, I bow my head in shame to know  that I stood on a platform and  campaigned for Doctor Raymond,” Reynolds told a political meeting of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), Sunday evening.

Raymond, an Economist,  contested the 2011 general elections on an SLP ticket and lost to the incumbent MP for  the Castries North constituency, Stephenson King.

Alvina Reynolds said she expected Raymond to stand up and be a good example of a man for the youth of Saint Lucia.

The former minister made reference to the eighteen year old female who was charged with blackmail amid the social media firestorm sparked by the leakage of the alleged nude photos of Raymond.

“How many of you have raised eighteen year old children? When they go to a party you can’t even sleep. When they take your car you can’t even sleep. When they tell you they want a drink of wine, you’re worried. All of a sudden an eighteen year old is a big woman,”  Reynolds told opposition supporters.

“Shameful! An eighteen year old student. A grown, married family man. And yes, he made sure she accepted responsibility. She was arrested, she was charged, she was bailed for ten thousand dollars, she showed up for court – she took responsibility for her actions. Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, he needs to take responsibility for his actions,” the former minister asserted.

Reynolds referred to Raymond’s statement in the midst of the scandal as quoted in the newspapers, where he declared that he would not be bullied.

She also noted that the Minister in the Ministry of Finance had said that since he entered politics he has maintained his integrity and credibility.

Reynolds said:

“Integrity? Credibility? Somebody wake me up because I am sleeping!”

      Tired of seeing that crap who without sin cast the first stone, stop judging….using quotes from the bible for politics conveniences. First of all, all action comes with a sanction, the type of sanction depends on the action. For the idiots out there that simply means if you do good you will be rewarded idv
      you do bad you will be punished. This
      too is clearly practiced in the Bible god
      punish Moses for breaking the tables for
      he forgives him his life was still taken he
      was not aloud to step on the promise
      land. Secondly speaking out on an issue
      doesn’t mean you casting stones or
      judging the person it only means you
      judging their actions and though
      forgiveness has happen he needs to be
      held responsible for his actions and in
      the event where he has taken
      responsiblity for whatever he has done
      wrong and people still have negative
      things to say and uses it against him ull famous quotes can be used he who without sin cast the first stone….so stop using the term loosely. He needs to step up and take responsiblity for his actions its wrong or all levels know matter what ull party hacks says

    So many who asking God for forgiveness yet they still sin ..if God were to ask them for forgiveness for what he never give them
    Would they forgive him. People you all must watch what you all say. Before what you say turns back to hunt you.

    St.Lucians stop the bloody hypocrisy.

    I will never support what both Ublaldus and this 18 year old student did.
    BUT. We use certain situation only when it is convenient to us.
    All of a sudden she is 18 years old and a student. When a young man of 17 or 18 commits a crime how do we treat him? Do we suddenly remember he is or was a student? That he is young and just coming into adulthood.

    If we are going to argue along the lines of maturity , age, gender and attempt to make a case PLEASE apply it to all young persons around this same age regardless of the crime. One’s maturity is not determined by the type of offense they have committed.

    And btw, this 18 year old we are talking about, is she a saint or a seasoned professional? hmmmm.

        I would rather we protest for the real victims out there. Because their cries are silenced when we attempt to defend both of theses individuals in this soap opera.

    Here is the thing, the young lady did this to herself by trying to blackmail the Minister, she was wrong and it was a criminal act she did. On the other hand I do agree that the Minister needs to step down because for a Married man and a so called Christian his actions were not moral. Don’t even try to say that was not him in the pics, am sure his wife could verify. We don’t need men like that running our country!! Lets bet was a female minister in that scandal pretty sure she would have been forced to resign already. These governments are sexist pigs.

    What illegal action did the Minister commit? Who posted a picture on the Internet ? Screwing around with “jabals” is a regular thing in St. Lucia. And if this is what we are saying of Ubalbus, then why should he be an exception? On the other hand, if we are peeved by his apparent naked picture on the Internet, then answer the question: who put it? Clearly, we cannot say that it was he who did anything of the kind. And, finally, how do we know that the picture was entirely of him? I hope you all are protecting yourselves and your families from criminal attacks which seem to to rampant in St. Lucia these days, rather than enjoying the little roro bits that either make us laugh or send our blood pressure up. Those who want to co tinge this stupid attack on Ubaldus should write a negative comment and then take their blood pressure. Then they will learn to stop their foolishness.

    But married men and Christians mess around all the time, Even today, we are celebrating married men a d Christians who were accused of doing wrong things. What really is the point ? A principle has to be an established position. If we embrace one sinner, we must embrace all sinners, because we cannot pretend that one sin is bigger than another sin, or that a sin is a sin only when “John” commits it but it is not a sin when “James” commits it. We cannot say, too, that an action that involves sex is more wrong than one that involves “Bobol”. Yet, we have heard on many occasions, people saying how “vex” they are because someone stole a little bit of money and was caught. As far as they commentators are concerned, if you are stealing, steal a “big quass”. So this is the kind of St. Lucia we have. A bunch of stupid hypocrites.

    We have a weird sense of morals in this country. If an employee steals money from his or her employer and that individual gets caught, we get very angry with that person if, in our estimation, the sum of money stolen was “too small”. We express the opinion that a anger amount should have been stolen, so that the penalty the person faces would be worth it. Then comes an allegation of sex, and we want to call in the hangman. Mind you, we call for human rights for actual murderers, in order to spare the life of those who actually kill. But we want blood immediately an apparent sex scandal breaks , without any evidence. No wonder the real criminals are keeping us so busy. We are too consumed with “roro” and not enough with our personal welfare and security. Some of us actually salivate on a piece of “juicy roro”, and we pretend that we are bright moral standard bearers. Well, God knows and sees all things. So when some of us are suffering we should reflect upon the things we have loved to experience , and try to link our attitudes to what we are going through.

    Would that just be for the matter at hand, or should similar disciplinary action be taken at any other similar time in the future? And should action be taken only in a sex case, or should action also be taken in other cases involving corruption. Have you not sinned at all? The public may not know your sins, but you know them. So do you feel qualified to hold public office, knowing what you have done? Remember, all wrongs are wrongs, whether they are public knowledge or not. Man know thyself and to thyself be true.
