Has Alan Slusher fallen out of favor with his friend the Prime Minister?

Has Alan Slusher, popularly known as “Sammy D” fallen out of favor with his friend the Prime Minister? For someone known to be a U.D.P. insider and close personal friend of the PM, Slusher has been moved around by the Government twice in recent times. A couple weeks ago, we reported that Slusher, who has considerable experience with the Caribbean Development Bank, was being replaced as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Central Bank of Belize in favor of Manuel Esquivel, the aging former prime minister, who is also involved with Petrocaribe, B.E.L. and the B.S.I. Board of Directors. Now B.T.L. is announcing that Slusher would no longer be serving as a member of the Government-appointed Board of Directors of Telemedia.  The reason cited was that he was leaving to assume greater responsibility as advisor to the PM. B.T.L. also says that the PM’s son, Anwar Barrow, who was appointed to be his father’s “eyes and ears” on the Board will also be leaving to devote more time to his businesses.  Lois Young, his mother, however, remains company secretary and lawyer. Two representatives from the Social Security will be named to the B.T.L. Board because of the fifty million dollar investment in shares.

    I fail to see the reasoning behind this news heading. If you fall out of favor with someone, why would you bring them closer to you? You would have found yourself running some rundown department in a far away district.

    i realised today that the last government of belize nearly faced what is happening in egypt. remember when every one was rioting. and johnny briceno was the only one man enough to resign from cabinet wen gob wanted to give universal 30 mil. i think wat is happening in egypt could have happened in bze if that gob remained in power and continued doing wat it did.

    Anyone who have been following the international news with regards to the war on terroist will know that the name of Egypt was mentioned as been involved in harsh punishments that were inflicted on many men that were captured by the CIA. Could what is happening in Egypt be the law of Karma at work? The country of Jardon was also mentioned as supporter of maltreatment of human beings, now we see them trying to get a head of the blast by been proactive politically. What’s done in the dark will come to light some day. We sowe and we reap. Its as if though the universe trow a spell over Egypt over night, when you take into consideration that Mobarck had broken up may of the major treat to his government before, but now he seem to be at a point of no return. Its like the first time the bully on the block get whipped, after that no one is affraid of him anymore. He that standeth take heed lest he fall; a qoute from the Bible.

    Right now the government of Belize seem to be pushing the citizens into a corner, directly and indirectly, and even at a distance from Belize I can feel the pressure building up, and pressure some day must be release, this is what earthquake is all about. Unfortunately the government seem to be ignoring these pressures, which will be to their peril sooner or later. Take heed folks.
