Agriculture Minister Godwin Hulse Speaks on Son’s Court Case

Godwin Hulse

Present for the arraignment was Godwin Hulse, the Minister of Agriculture who is the father of Kenzle Hulse. The Minister signed bail for Kenzle, who has a previous charge for a similar offense. In March 2017, Kenzle was charged with one count of harm committed upon Alberto Santos Lopez. His indictment came several months after a police report was made by Lopez who told police that Kenzle pistol-whipped him on January twenty-second, 2017 while purchasing fuel at a gas station. In today’s matter, the family of Nicole Usher believes that a greater charge should have been levied against Kenzle since a firearm was allegedly involved.  Upon exiting the courtroom, Godwin took on the media, proclaiming that the spotlight is being shined on this particular court case because of who Kenzle is; a minister’s son. Interestingly, that is the same reason that Usher’s family believes that justice will not be served in this matter.

“Do you know why this is here? Because this is a Minister Hulse son. Otherwise you would not have been here. Hundreds of cases come for harm all the time. Nobody follow them up. But Minister Hulse’s son that kid has always has to be on p’s and q’s. Let me make something clear to you, not one of you interviewed when he was viciously stabbed coming out of a restaurant about a year and half ago. I think the date was exactly May the seventeenth of 2017 in the hospital for three weeks. Nobody report that. When my other son was hijacked and his vehicle was taken from him nobody report that. When Minister Hulse was in United Nations representing this country with his wife and his house was broken into and his computer was stolen and his son, the other son was there to try to defend himself nobody report that. Nobody charged on that yet. Nobody charged on the stabbing yet. Nobody charged on the jacking of his truck yet.”



“Sir but when it comes to…”


Godwin Hulse

“Make me finish. Make me finish. Please. When I as the Minister of Police had my placed robbed almost eighty thousand dollars out of my workshop equipment they couldn’t convict anybody. When this kid had that case last year or year before last, whenever it was at his butane place you know what the guy said when he left the court well the police officer said he said that he is not coming back because no one is paying his again. That is what he said because it was a trumped up damn charge. This is an issue between a young lady that allegedly has a baby for him that he was asked to babysit. Most young men does not baby sit nobody’s baby. He readily agreed. Took the child from two to six every evening for the last, I think it was for about a month. The child was getting close to him. Most young men do not do that; take off time to babysit because the lady says she has to work. As a result he took back the baby and whatever happened, happened. None of you, not the mother who is giving a lot of statements, nor me was in the vehicle. So nobody knows what happened. That will come out in court when there is trial. Nobody knows what happened. It is that she say, and my son says. My son speaks to me. She speaks to her mother.”

“Sir the complainant is saying that your son is saying that he will get away with it which goes back to your first statement that you mentioned that he is a minister’s son, that he is your son.”


Godwin Hulse

“But that is why he is in court. You all should been here the last time and seen that I no talk to anybody. I don’t make any representation. I get an attorney and sit there because as a parent I make sure that the system runs how it supposde to run. I do not interfere, never interfere and never would interfere. And the issue of flight risk and all of that, that is just ludicrous please. Have a good day you all. Don’t edit me.”
