Zenaida & Patrick Clash over Right to Name Queen

Zenaida Moya

Earlier you heard the members of the National Committee’s comments regarding their meeting with Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Patrick Faber on Saturday. Faber has confirmed to News Five that he has been in touch with his attorneys concerning Zenaida Moya’s comments on Monday morning’s LOVE FM morning show and elsewhere about his behaviour and demeanor in that meeting. According to Faber, the meeting started later than scheduled because he had to clear traffic from the Carnival Road March. He reiterated that without the benefit of the new scoring, with which he was not provided, he made no decision as to who the Queen of the Bay is, merely to allow the coronation to continue with the already chosen queen. But Moya takes it differently and says Faber made the wrong call. She does say sorry to all involved.


Zenaida Moya, National Coordinator, Queen of the Bay Committee

“[The] Queen of the Bay the Committee – it’s not under the purview of the National September Celebrations Commission, so that entity had no right to overstep their boundaries or try to overrule a decision or think it had any right to overrule a decision made by the Committee based on the findings of a report.  And we are truly sorry for all the parties involved: both of the delegates, both from Stann Creek and Orange Walk, because both of them have suffered. Of course, in this manner up until now, I know that in the case of – when one was all happy, the other was devastated, because she felt that what was rightfully hers – she had done everything right; she had done everything that she could possibly do to win that pageant and she received all the accolades for it but she was still not declared the winner. So she went through that; she went through that, her family, her committee, everybody.”

    Incompetent judges. They did not do a good job. Was politics involved? I am sure the committee gave them the guide line for judging.
