On the anniversary of the gruesome death of Arima court clerk Andrea Bharatt comes another gruesome death of another young lady.
The devastating news came when the body of Keithisha Cudjoe was found in the same area of the Heights of Aripo where Andrea Bharatt’s body was found.
Keithisha Cudjoe, 21, of Harding Place, Cocorite, went missing on January 24 and her decomposing body was found on January 28.
It is also one year since Attorney General Faris Rawi promised Pepper Spray to assist women in protecting themselves from criminal elements. But like so many broken promises from this Keith Rowley-led regime, sadly, this is another one.
January also saw a bloody month of 50 murders, the Minister of National Security, Fitzgerald Hinds, seems clueless and lacking the foresight and vision to handle the out-of-control spiraling crime situation; nowhere is safe in this country right now.
It makes no sense calling for the minister to step-down when the entire government has failed for the past six and a half years. But as a people we cannot continue to sit silently and watch the lives of our loved ones be snuffed out; we must use our collective voice and demand a fresh general election, so we can elect capable and competent people to manage our affairs.
I wish to extend my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Keithisha Cudjoe, may almighty God grant them strength in this difficult time, and may her soul rest in eternal peace.
