Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has thanked his supporters for their concern and reassured them that he is fine after a ‘noisy’ incident outside his home in the North of the Island.
The incident occurred early on Sunday, on a day the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) dubbed ‘Pan Sunday’, during which labour supporters beat pots and pans to demonstrate their opposition to the current government.
“Thank you for your concern. The pots and pans are a classic representation of the SLP. Empty and full of noise. Ignore the desperation,” Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page on Monday.
Regarding the incident early on Sunday morning, the PM assured everyone that he is fine.
But in a video post on his official Facebook page, Chastanet said he was a little disappointed.
“When these guys came at that hour of the morning, I thought what they were doing was bringing me some breakfast,” he stated.
But Chastanet declared that in typical labour style, they did not deliver.
“Instead, they came with empty pots and pans and making plenty noise. But you know what they say? ‘Empty vessels make the most noise!'” The PM stated.
“Mamai Flambeau, let’s keep working,” Chastanet declared.
Police temporarily detained at least one male in connection with the incident outside the PM’s private residence.
