Fenton Lashes Seiveright


The MP for Eastern St. Thomas, Dr. Fenton Ferguson says his JLP challenger, Delano Seiveright, is a political novice, who doesn’t know what it takes to win the hearts and minds of the people.

According to Dr. Ferguson, Mr. Seiveright has been waging a ‘chatting’ campaign for several months.

And Dr. Ferguson says the JLP is seeking to discredit his stewardship as Health Minister, by virtue of his handling of the Chikungunya virus last year.

Dr. Ferguson says he has achieved significant things since he took office in January, 2012.

Meanwhile, Mr. Seiveright says he has spent half a million dollars of his own funds, to pay for the private trucking of water to the worst affected areas of Eastern St. Thomas.

The JLP caretaker says he made the move, in light of reports of rampant political victimization in the distribution of water supplied by trucks from the NWC.

Mr. Seiveright says he has decided to spend his own money to help the residents, as repeated appeals to Government agencies have been ignored.

He says the Government is turning a blind eye to the widespread use of dirty water and unhygienic practices, as desperate residents walk miles in search of water.

He says at least one government contractor has been delivering what residents report to be ‘very dirty’ water over the last few days.

According to Mr. Seiveright, several persons have blamed the quality of the water delivered by the contractors for the diarrhea, stomach pains, bloating and other medical issues they’ve had to deal with in recent times.
