Musa Says Awarding of Boledo Contract is Nepotism

Kareem Musa

According to Musa, the awarding of the boledo contract to Brad’s is the greatest case of nepotism under the Barrow Administration.

 

Kareem Musa, Area Rep., Caribbean Shores

“He is now trying to wash his hands that he did not now. Rubbish, absolutely rubbish because you are and you were the Minister of Finance at the time the contract was given the Brads.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“Do you believe that there is conflict in interest?”

 

Kareem Musa

“Absolutely. There is no greater, clearer case of conflict of interest and one that has resulted and some people estimate that it is worth as much as five hundred million dollars. The ten year exclusive contract is worth up to five hundred million. That is half a billion dollars that you are giving to your son. Greatest case of nepotism ever in the existence of Belize. Yes it was nepotism when he was the C.E.O. at B.T.L., but what about this contract. And now you are telling us that you don’t know who the shareholders are and you don’t care which is even worse because this is money that could have been coming into the coffers of the government but instead it has been funnelled to his family member.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“Are you surprise that he managed to stand at every moment or after every sentence that Mister Espat was uttering?”

 

Kareem Musa

“In the last five years I’ve had my own experience in the House of Representatives to know when it is I am getting under the skin of the Prime Minister because he rises. He has done that in numerous instances. So when my colleague the honourable Julius Espat was needling the Prime Minister and was actually revealing where these wired transfers were going into these accounts for these companies. I think he got up about four or five times and he did not have any point of order. None whatsoever because he was trying to say that the Brads contract had been debated in the House when in fact that is a huge fallacy. The Brads Contract never made it to the debate. It never it to a debate and so now is the time that all of these facts are coming out of the shareholders and the directors of the these shell phantom companies off in Saint Lucia and we are now learning that the Prime Minister’s son is at the helm of all of these companies.”
