Opposition MP, Shawn Edward, has expressed concern over the fate of banana farmers, asserting that their harvest is being wasted.
“Today it pains me to watch the harvests being fed to pigs or left to rot along roadsides,” the Dennery North MP wrote Thursday on the official Facebook page of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).
Edward disclosed that Thursday being his constituency day, he visited a few farmers.
“It was wrong for this UWP administration to have encouraged them to return to the fields to plant more bananas for export to Martinique/France knowing such markets never existed,” the MP declared.
“Exploitation of the highest order! When will they level with the farmers? Tell the farmers the truth!” Edward declared, adding that the longest rope has an end.
