“It’s about time we get rid of this unfounded claim and it’s like a patriotic day for me because I saw them, I walked with them. You know, the feeling, because this is Belize and a lot of people are telling us they didn’t have enough information and that’s not an excuse because they did have all the information out. If you have social media, Facebook, you had every way to get this information. If you neva get it da because you neva want it, the onus was upon yourself to get the information. I was born here and I will die here.”

 

Winston Egbert, Resident

“I love the country and I will fight for it.”

“Mr. Winston. Sean and his mom didn’t really need much to make their decision. How about you? Was it the same for you or did you take some time to think about it?”

 

Winston Egbert
