Press Release:The Parliamentary Representative for Vieux Fort South, Dr Kenny D. Anthony, calls on the UWP Government to make frank and full disclosure about its intentions for the St Jude Hospital. 

According to Dr Anthony, the Government must clarify the following issues:

  1. Who are the architects and the engineers for the proposed new hospital?
  2. Has the design of the hospital received full or partial approval from the Development Control Authority?
  3. What will happen to the existing buildings on the site?
  4. Will the new facility be a polyclinic or a hospital?
  5. What is the value of the contract awarded to construct the foundation of the proposed facility? 

 Dr Anthony added:

“I have noted the ongoing debate about whether the proposed new building will be a glorified polyclinic or a full-fledged hospital. I want to make it absolutely clear that my constituents will not accept any glorified polyclinic as a replacement for St Jude Hospital. Given the existing state of our health infrastructure, St Jude’s Hospital now becomes even more important in the scheme of things. It is well known that the Owen King EU Hospital, has fewer beds than the existing Victoria Hospital. In light of this , it becomes critical that St Jude’s Hospital has enough beds to provide medical care not only to the people of the south but to Saint Lucians as a whole especially those who may not be able to access the Owen King EU Hospital. This also means that the Government must clearly state what it plans to do with the existing buildings, which for its own opportunistic reasons, it criticized and threatened to demolish.”

    • I want FULL & Frank Disclosure on Boxing in Paradise, Black Bay Issue, Pajoah 160 million letter and many more. See how that works? Whataboutism never solves anything

      • While at it….the Dahler building, St. Jude’s forensic evaluation, DHS, the dump in Vieux Fort, call center, sports consultants, ORC, etc.etc.etc. Let’s not play this game because everyone has skeletons in their closets.
        These are very pertinent questions that the public will need answers to. Especially when plans are being change in the middle of the game.

  1. St.Lucians (not red or yellow hacks) won’t full disclosure from the fire to this day. That includes dear Sir the 5 years you were in office and responsible. Accountability across the board is what we wont. Stop the political BS.

  2. What we need is a minimum wage rate to curb poverty, crime and prostitution as private sector workers have been exploited for decades as people in the workforce have to survive on ten hundred dollars a month

    • But Boss you must understand what the big picture is. The 6 percent that owns business and control the wealth in this country don’t want to see this happen including Dear Allen and he has to cater to his CLIQUES because this will affect their bottom line the poorer you are the better for them every fourth night. Look what they did with the VAT they said they reduced it but to please Dear Allen Friends in the business community that’s was fuming they added vat of basics things that were non vatable so those business would not have to pay tax. Pay attention Boss Watch how they move.

      • So you think that Kenny is not included in the 6%? It is so hilarious that people think that some politicians in St. Lucia are wealth while others are not and they are there for the malayway. Who is a malayway? Are they the same people sporting Samsung galaxy that cannot send their children to school?

    • while government workers sit on their heads and do nothing…alway get raises and hold the country ransom for their vote…I suggest the people vote out any government that is lenient on the public sector!

  3. The Yellow Jackets acting like the whole of St Lucia don’t have the right to know what the hell is going on behind that ugly looking waste of money ply wood fence like St Jude’s is not an issue that’s Jermaine to all St Lucians who cant fly out. Rass Alexander Big Up Yourself Boss.

  4. AA Kenny, nice to see you again, I thought you were in hiding somewhere. How about explaining to the public how you sold the exploration rights for our sea bed to some old jew behind our backs?.

    • That’s only important to YOU. The barren sea bed can’t provide poor Lucians with a cardiologist.
      The barren sea bed can’t provide poor St Lucians with prenatal care. The barren sea bed can’t provide prostate screening or eye care. GET THE PICTURE so continue to stick on that. You better put your a** on the boat.

      • “lucian highgrade” you sir are a special type of ignorant, ive met your kind before, little education with an expert opinion on everything lol pathetic. Do your country a favour and dont reproduce, that high grade of stupidity should die with you. Your skulll is as baron as the sea bed. You obviously have no idea what natural resources are under the sea bed and the potential value of said resources….does it hurt to be that stupid?

  5. UWP promised the hospital would be a priority …they have now been in office 3 years …plus 2 after St. Jude’s fire…that’s longer than SLP yet they never did anything except put plywood around the hospital…Useless Worthless Party

  6. You built all the structures at St Jude without a plan now you are asking for approval or partial approval. You never disclosed the costing of St Jude. Why is it important who the contractor is? You have your stooges placed in government to delay the process. No response for you. None. Now come a march again. You all idiots. You are insignificant Kenny. St Jude is coming and you are scared.

    • Write pure crap and as soon as you get a sniffle is Miami you run off to ? New or old you would not be caught dead there. Yoohoo will that be you in a chiffon dress and lace front wig trying to board the boat ?? Don’t forget to shave those legs.

      • We died anywhere. And yes the record shoes that more people die at hospitals under and SLP administration.

  7. I am in total agreement. Full disclosure on why the hospital was not finished under the SLP after five years. Full disclosure on why it appears that it will not finish under a UWP after five years. This politicians on both side can access health care from anywhere in the world while we fight their battles for them and die while doing it. We are all but pawns in their little game of staying in power or coming into power, all for their own selfish agendas.

  8. Their restaurant cottages built for a hospital needed to be demolished. so i am in complete agreement. did the SLP architects make the plans? as for KDA and his gang, a full waste of space. what did they accomplish in office? nada, zero..let me see.. No hospital in his own constituency. nothing to help move the airport forward, a place badly in need of upgrading, thenbiggest international jufalli scandal and bobol this nation has ever seen. now u understand why, the Silly Little People will never get back into power.

  9. Please define ‘Glorified Polyclinic” I know you did not write this for all readers but the people in the South you believe is still ignorant. Please define ‘Glorified Polyclinic”. Is there anything like a glorified polyclinic. Maybe a polyclinic decorated with balloons, confetti and fireworks. St Jude Hospital completion is a dagger in you all SLP heart

    • You make yourself sound uneducated….lmao didn’t you read the sacarsm in the term “glorified polyclinic” looking for everything petty in people’s words. The point is this the last government didn’t finish it and the new government won’t….its high time the “glorified intelligent” see beyond the lenses of red and yellow, all of them looking for ways to put more money in their pockets, stoping projects already started and throwing away our tax payers money, creating unnecessary debt that all of us st Lucian’s pay. No one wants to say this all of them campaigns, what have st Lucia gained….me after 8 years of unemployment, after passing all CXCs, going to sir arthur and graduate with As and Bs, attending several courses at NSDC which by the way haven’t tested several classes for the CVQ they promised and the jobs we supposed to get, now what I get is you’re over qualified when apply to get jobs at KFC or not even getting responses when applying at massy stores….how many are now opting for Monroe college to get out of st Lucia to get a better pay on cruise ships on farms in Canada. And what salary people get 200-300 a fortnight…with a stadium hospital that can kill you while you walking in with falling debris…farless for the resources available in there….no beds for people admitted….honestly you petty Lucian’s need to get your priorities straight…non of them worth voting for

      • What you can’t get a job? I find it stange that a young person with 8 CXCs and As and Bs at Sir Arthur cannot get a job. Maybe before but not now. There are many websites with job postings ask where to look.

  10. People must look at. Untold stories of St Jude’s patrons of Lost course
    118 million gone down the drain
    And under who’s administration.
    Who’s payments were increasing
    Who approved the drawing .
    Check out Dale Eleot he will share the details with you.

    • What bothers my most about that mess is that “professionals” were paid over 10 million of tax payers money to essentially assure that what happened didn’t happen. In a more progressive society where accountability, and professinalism mattered that money would have to be paid back and or someone is in prisson for it…

  11. Dear Dr. Anthony

    I had held you in high regard for long time until I saw the documentary on Untold Stories on St. Jude’s Hospital where you were interviewed by Dale Elliot. I was honestly embarrassed and ashamed that you stood by and allowed this travesty to occur in your own constituency. Shall I also add that today Vieux Fort is still very much underdeveloped, a dump and crime cesspool after you served as parliamentary representative and Prime Minister for 3 terms; how do you account for that? You lost all your credibility over this and perhaps the general elections of 2016 as well. In my opinion and that of the over 47,000 St Lucians who voted for the United Workers Party, you have lost ALL legitimacy to speak on the St. Jude’s issue!

    Now to Allen Chastanet and the UWP…
    Rest assured that the frustration among the electorate regarding both hospitals and the overall state of health care in St. Lucia is building up. We will not tolerate any more excuses and we WILL beat you’ll with the same stick!

  12. While I readily accept the statement made by Anthony there needs to be full and frank disclosure on Frenwell, Jufalli, Gryndberg and St. Judes. Disclosure is a two way thing and does not happen only on one side.

  13. This man has done so many things without a word. Lets go back and start from the mortgaging and eventual sale of the Helenites building in New York up till 2016. No accountability whatsoever. Let the people ask for what they want because as far as I am concerned Kenny is not in a position to ask for nay transparency. As far as the maxim goes “he who comes to justice must come with clean hands. Enough said. Let the people ask.
