The Simpson Miller-led Cabinet is coming under fire from the Opposition for awarding a $152-million contract to a company owned by prominent businessman and PNP-activist, Kenneth ‘Skeng Don’ Black.
Ministry Paper number 37 tabled in the Senate on Friday says Black Brothers Incorporated Limited has been awarded the contract to build a perimeter fence at National Heroes Park in Central Kingston.
The Companies Office of Jamaica lists the company’s shareholders as Kenneth, Lennox, Winston, Robert and Wesley Black.
Kenneth Black is also a company Director.
The Ministry paper indicates that the contract to Black’s firm was approved by the Cabinet on September 28.
Addressing a JLP meeting in St. Elizabeth last night, West Portland MP, Daryl Vaz lashed out at the government for the contract award.
He says the Simpson Miller-administration is wicked.
Vaz issued this warning to the Simpson Miller-administration.
The Ministry paper says the contract for the building of the fence is intended to improve the appearance and secure National Heroes Park.
Vaz says he’s astonished that Mrs. Simpson Miller affixed her signature to the Ministry paper.
