The Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, has chided persons who take to social media to create mischief amid the ongoing relief efforts in the aftermath of the eruption of La Soufriere volcano.
“It doesn’t matter how much I tell them to stop it, they not going to stop it,” Gonsalves told state-owned NBC radio on Thursday.
“Seems to me there are some people, all they want to do is create mischief and cause confusion to generate a complaining industry,” Gonsalves asserted.
But he urged Vincentians to cooperate and not allow anyone to confuse them.
The Vincentian Prime Minister acknowledged that the relief effort will experience hiccups, limitations and challenges.
And he explained that officials will have to resolve them on a daily basis.
The PM observed that the relief effort poses a big administrative and managerial problem.
However, Gonsalves said a ‘keyboard warrior’ does not understand these matters.
As a result, he said they start to do their ‘blasting’ and taking to task volunteers who are working long hours, including on weekends.
“We are in for a pretty long haul,” Gonsalves declared.
He said he knows people are accustomed to fast food, instant coffee and such things.
“This is a meat hard fuh boil,” he asserted.
In this regard, he urged his countrymen to cooperate and demonstrate a sense of social solidarity.
