Prime Minister Mottley and Minister Kerri Symmonds Continue to FAIL a Poor Black man

Where and to Whom in Barbados can a Barbadian Black man from the blue collar working class (now an old age pensioner) complain to and seek redress from, pertaining to illegal actions by a White British ex-pat who in 2002 created a private road across, within and along a watercourse bed.

Even if such actions were carried-out with permission from the then BLP Minister of MTW, the procedures were still wrongful and illegal to effectively block an essential part of a watercourse. This means that the Minister of MTW, would have had to an abetor to an obvious violation of the Barbados “Prevention of Floods Act Cap 235”. Due to the fact, that the private road created the conditions that caused recurring rainfall run-off to redirect from an original course to my home, caused damages to my property and forced me to make some changes to prevent rainfall run-off from entering my home which is situated South-West of the illegally altered watercourse. From 2004 all of my legitimate Complaints and pleas to Officials at MTW&M for a remedy to the created at risk flooding situation are still persistently disregarded not only by prolonged inaction to remedying, also the relentless discriminatory manner that showed favouritism towards the White Ex-pat.

BLP, and DLP Government Ministers at the Ministry of Transport, Works and maintenance (MTW&M) who are entrusted with the authority under the “Prevention of Floods Act Cap 235” as it pertains to watercourses – Top Public Servants at MTW&M in general who never ever showed the courtesy of acknowledging a letter of complaint far less responding, and in particular MTW&M Chief Technical Officers who are entrusted with responsibility for the correct functioning of watercourses.

The named persons below have contributed to relentless discrimination against this Barbadian Black man exposed to the risk of flooding situation   by Top Technical Officers, CTOs Frank Thornhill, and Nash Lovell. The Present Deputy CTO Philip Tudor, who would have acted as CTO at times, and CTO Cheryl Bennett-Inniss. The Ministers, Hon. Gline Clarke, John Boyce, Michael Lashley. The present Hon Minister Dr. William Duguid The Top Public servants, PS Bruce Alleyne, and  acting PS Simone Rudder. The present PS Mark Cummins.

MTW CTO Frank Thornhill and Deputy CTO Philip Tudor to whom I complained and pleaded over the years, acknowledged and stated that the private road is the cause of at risk flooding. They confirmed the road contravened the “Prevention Of Floods Act Cap 235”. The CTO is entrusted with the duty to carry-out the necessary flood work to remedy such at risk flooding situations. That said, CTO and Deputy CTO, Officially verbally pledged to remove the boulders and restore the watercourse. Yet those two top Technical Officers reneged on their pledges to carry-out the functions of their responsibility clearly stipulated by the “Prevention Of Floods Act Cap 235”.

After enduring, all the unfairness and discrimination against this Black community by the last DLP government,  I was looking forward to the new seemingly improved BLP government to do the right thing. Before the 2018 General Election, I sent an email to MP. Symmonds reminding him of the worsening situation at the watercourse, that email was copied to non other than the now, Hon. Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley who quickly replied. She asked for more information on the matter, (which was forwarded) and made promises to address the at risk flooding situation if successful at the polls. She also asked to support Kerrie. MP Kerrie Symmonds response to the email was to contact me. He visited and made overworked promises, that he is “still trying” to get a remedy to the watercourse. He reinforced that promise with another visit to inform me that he and Mia visited where the watercourse is altered and they agreed to prioritize the fixing of the flooding situation if successful in wining the Government. He also used that 5 yearly visit to promised other Residents affected by the at risk flooding in Clarkes Road.

One year after the BLP 30-0 victory at the polls, the Hon. Kerrie Symmonds clearly resumed his purported representation of the Black Residents of Clarke’s Road. When I called upon the Hon Minister, the Minister stated he is “still trying” to get the much needed remedying to the watercourse. When reminded that he was seeking a remedy from 2006, Minister Symmonds took cover by stating that Barbados is financially embarrassed, the public Officers are not well equipped, and “if I continue my agitation in public”, it will not advance a remedy, he said, it actually makes it harder for him to get Public Officers to work towards remedying the watercourse.

How much equipping the Public Officers need “other than integrity”.  The CTO of MTW&M is entrusted with the legal responsibility to carry-out, authorize the Deputy CTO or Officers to Carry-out the functions of the clearly spelled-out stipulations of “The prevention Of Floods Act Cap 235”, pertaining to the White British Ex-pat clear contravened actions, that altered, and placed the private road across, within and along a watercourse in 2002.

The Hon. Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley, seems not to have the need now to show the respect of replying to this Barbadian Black man, as she did before the 2018 general Election, far less intervening.

I salute her for fighting the germs as I witnessed her work at the QEH and I salute her for fighting the diseased minds that would inflict such cruel and inhumane treatment on those who have been deemed invalids by the government’s own own medical agents.

    And as for Bajan men like Watchman, who are afraid to get radical as I would have done a long time ago, they will continue to listen for the rush of water coming to wash them away like Carew.

    PS. I had just told a friend not to panic as I was going to look up Caswell’s number and place a call when she turned on Brasstacks and told me he was on the air. She stopped panicking after she heard his submission. We both knew it could never stand with the assault he launched on that atrocity.

The only good thing about your letters is that it places you in a good position to sue the crap out of government should your house go down the gully with the next pending storm. No court in Barbados under the influence of the party-power-regime could not bring any spin to this situation. You have all the evidence and letters at your disposal proving that you beckon the two parties in power for 15 years to help resolve your matter. The only thing opposing you now is time. Time for the floods to come through and time for your house to wash away, and the time that it take the government to show how wicked they are/were when they come with all types of legal shite to get themselves out of the stranglehold.

    This was a lady who had the courage to take to the street and voice her dissatisfaction with how she was being treated.
    Can you imagine the surprise of seeing a docile sheep staging a protest?

    Civil servants were probably instructed to determine how many sheep were affected in this manner and where they were located. Undoubtedly the report came in that people from all over the nation were affected.

    This woman was the face of a looming political disaster, a possible move from 30-0 to 0-30. It was her pain that they felt, it was the hurt to themselves that they could see coming.

Yet, MTW favourably allowed and assisted in the placing of the private road across within and along the watercourse bed. MTW paved the road, the flooding wash it away. Why ? If money was the case, why did MP Kerrie Symmonds brought Mr. Brooks a private contractor to say how the remedying, can be done, and not MTW Officers. Why from 2006-08 the Hon.

If you do not think that that will work, then meet me at the wall this Saturday with a sledge hammer, and let us demolish it on the grounds of protecting those downstream – since the rainy season is upon us.

    Since none of the other BU commenters are willing to do anything other than write, you go and confirm the owner so that we can move forward. If you have been targeting the wrong party, then you know what you should do.

    The British Expat built that wall and placed the boulders, don’t have to confirm. some serious actions within the law, are in the works of very careful Planning, press coverage, that can give Nextparty246 a good highlight in the process, that is if you are serious,and have the appetite, who will be nextparty246 candidate for St. James Central ? Drop a few lines, we don’t need to walk around parliament to resolve this.

  • Yes Watch, you have to confirm. We do not want to demolish the wrong person’s property.

    We seem happy to gather with the 2019 version of ‘pitchforks and torches’ to damage the white enemy. We are so easily manipulated to defame and destroy someone we do not know. What is the owner of the wall was black. What do we do then? Just walk away.

    Watch, we must always be careful before making any accusation, or any defamatory remark, because there is a God in heaven, and He is a just God.

    The wall with the chainlink fence on the right of that picture and boulder Belong to the white British Expat. It was there from later 2002. Mr. Dawe from Drainage units visited the site in January 2003.by now you must know, that I know when a game is playing.

    How do someone confirmed what he saw ? don’t have to know the British ex-pat, I saw her callous actions.
    If the owner was a Black Barbadian from a class like Mr. Blackman, the wall and boulders would have gone a long time ago. Granville, there are no we, any more straight balls?

  • MTW&M Deputy CTO Philip Tudor in a copied email, admitted to Hon PM Mottley and Hon Minister Symmonds that he is waiting on the Chief Town Planner form 2004 to date for permission to removed a wall and boulders that is blocking the watercourse. The CTP is now the PS at MTW&M , still the incompetence of DCTO Tudor, he must know that he doesn’t need permission to do such. Who aided and abetted the British Expat, by allowing the private road to remain even though it is illegally placed ? Why was the private road paved by MTW work men at cost to taxpayers ?
