In a rare break with tradition, Member of Parliament for West Kingston, Desmond McKenzie, says the apology offered by Prime Minister Andrew Holness on behalf of the State for actions taken during the May 2010 incursion, while welcomed isn’t enough.
Mr. McKenzie was speaking during yesterday’s sitting of the House of Representatives.
The Prime Minister had earlier offered the apology; seven years after a joint police/military operation to arrest then Tivoli Gardens don, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, left 73 people dead.
Mr. McKenzie says the people of West Kingston wish to be part of the change that rids the country of garrison politics.
He’s also inviting neighbouring Members of Parliament for South and South West St Andrew, Mark Golding and Dr. Angela Brown-Burke to continue efforts aimed at reducing tension between the divisions.
