Holness Seeks Extension of Mt Salem ZOSO

Prime Minister Holness has called on the Parliament to extend the time period for the Zones of Special Operations in both Mount Salem in St. James and Denham Town in West Kingston.

He argued the period required to extend the zones would expire while Parliament is in recess on the 15th and 29th of December. He’s also suggesting the law may need to be reviewed due to impracticalities.

The Prime Minister also gave an update on the activities of the zones which he says have reaped success.

He says a challenge in the future will be scaling up the ZOSO programme to impact more communities.

The extension is still being deliberated in the House of Representatives.
