“Boots” Martinez denies then admits constituents got $50,000

Port Loyola Area Representative Anthony Boots Martinez is also part of that team, and yes, he also got fifty thousand dollars to give to his constituents. Today, he seemed a little offended when asked about it. In fact, he accused Channel Five of ‘infiltrating misinformation.’ We’re not sure what that means. But whatever it is, Martinez was not happy about it, but in the end admitted that his constituents got the cash.


Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez, Port Loyola Area Representative

“Sir, I think weh yu might need fu do is just go ask the people of Port Loyola what they received. Unu deh try mek wah whole political thing, especially Channel Five. Everything Weh dey run da nothing positive…they try fu even infiltrate all kinda misinformation. I have problem with Channel Five weh no report objectively yu know. Every time when they have something, most of time when there’s an issue, dey no try contact yu to find out the next side of it. They only try mere speculation about everything. And I tell yu the truth, I have problem with giving Channel Five any interview because inna my humble opinion, they are not objective at all.”

    LOL. Boots get a dictionary! “Infiltrate all kinda misinformation.” Jesus help us. I was in Belize when that shooting occurred at Mikes and saw you on television; “Donimoes” ; come on! You can’t pronounce nor spell simple words and you’re a minister of government. I implore the people of Belize to get out and vote and get some of these street hustlers out of politics so that we can get some of our dignity back. I’m watching this PUP play where Francis is letting back a couple of his gangstas in also. In meetings with people of the party over the past few years I was assured that some of them weren’t welcomed back anymore. I’m seriously considering going back to Belize to try to hold a post and I’m becoming disenchanted day by day because I’d be giving up a good career. Boots probably got caught with his pants down and had already siphoned off the money. We need to let him print a complete list publicly so that people saw all who got and in what denominations. Then, we will know if he actually gave all of it away. I hope he used some of it for some good dental work on those horrible teeth and diseased gum caused by that ten dollar habit he has.
