  1. Governments can open up events for mass crowds but it’s up to us as individuals to know better and for us to stay away.
    We are the ones who will be infected should we be not cautious, and will take it home to our loved ones.

  2. ok u will hear in the next few months………….this place love a party eh…time will tell…….

  3. And kenson pushed for Gros Islet friday night which turned out to be a massive crowd event wuth absoluteky no protocols. Covid is no respector of persons! I pray his government has the health facilicities “red And reddy” for the outbreak of covid cases! I see omplete and utter madness in St. Lucia. Feeling sorry for the persons who attended and their family members , work collegues etc….

  4. That is expected. Kindly expect to see those figures in the hundreds next week due to Gros Islet Friday night no mask mandate.

    • Hush. Up in the states this nonsense ain’t even an issue anymore. St. Lucia is doing the bidding for white supremacy. I’m so shocked the elitist white folks who started this medical sabotage onto other countries have left the propaganda wheel behind meanwhile st. Lucia is still continuing on the elitist white supremacist talking point propoganda about how many people got this and that amount of the you know. Smh 🤦‍♂️ This shit been dead here because they play other countries meanwhile they know it’s not right up here and people fight back against the nonsense.

      As black man and women in a sovereign country think for yourselves. Stop being a doo-boy for white rich people.
      I can see why black Americans don’t want any more blacks from the diaspora and carribean in particular up here because of this regurgitation of colonist white people mindset.

      Some of Yall don’t wanna be mentally free but just want to look good under white people as long as you out do other blacks in the best interest of the White slave colonial government who bully yall but yall never speak up against the harm there causing to the original black people.
      This shit is old now. The grass-roots see the slave mindset and saying hell no, and saying we want what’s rightfully ours.
      No more of the fake games meanwhile st. Lucia crime rate is extremely high and you worried about covid. Haha.. Do me a favor and look at sentinel Island people and see how they leave independently on an island and run it efficiently and will defend it from any outside intervention.
      Yall got all these resorts owned from outside entities and yall ain’t rich from your own countries resources ?? So who’s benefiting who and who’s not! I digress 🤔 yall getting pimped from both fake parties
