  1. This is one of the ways to shut you people up.Make promises and then when the date comes not fulfilled them.Let us see what really happens on January 31,2020.If those who are owed would be paid in full.To Gaston Browne,why not go to that Offshore Bank.Where the CIP funds are stored and withdraw the monies to pay all persons owed for years.You did it some months ago to pay salaries.How come the people do not know the amount of
    funds in those Offshore Banks.Why are Ministers of Government on Boards.While they are the heads of Ministries.Like NYAMCO is supposed to be a private company.However,the Chairman of that Board is a Minister in Cabinet.How much money do these fat greedy bastards need.They are making all of the money.While the ordinary person is suffering,daily.In my opinion they do not care one damn.
