Kareem Musa and PM Barrow Spar over Brads Boledo Contract

Caribbean Shores area rep Kareem Musa attempted to discuss the exclusive lottery contract which was given to Brads. In the recent past House sitting, Cayo South area representative Julius Espat revealed that Good Lee Limited controls majority shares in the boledo company. He also revealed that Good Lee is registered in Saint Lucia and questioned whether the Prime Minister’s son, Anwar Barrow, has hidden shares in Good Lee.  As expected by Musa, the Prime Minister and the Speaker of the House made moves to prevent him from speaking on the Brads contract, saying that the matter has already been discussed and debated.  While Musa disagreed, he followed the advice of the Speaker and spoke about nepotism, tying in the Brads contract in his presentation.


Kareem Musa, Area Rep., Caribbean Shores

“Over the years we have lost tens of millions of dollars unnecessarily and I want to disagree with the Prime Minister when he says that nepotism is not corruption. It absolutely is corruption. It has cost us so much money over the years and we see when the Prime Minister last week said that he doesn’t care who got that contract for boledo. He doesn’t care, what does that have to do the with the price of rice? And he said that he is not the minister responsible for the lotteries commission but he is. He is the minister of finance and all I wanted to say and I am not going to call any names but his son is affiliated with that company that was awarded that contract and he should have known as the Minister of Finance. He should have known. All I am saying that the Prime Minister cannot escape his responsibility as the Minister of Finance. You can’t say that “I don’t care, I don’t know who owns the company”. That is not enough. He ought to have know that his son is the owner of that company.”


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“Let me tell you something. I born on the canal side, you know. So when you want to go lower, I can go lower but I won’t. I would merely leave with you something that far from original and something that I have used before that I was certain hoping I would not have to employ against especially not on this day since it may well be the last sit4ting of this session of the National Assembly. I will not get into a back and forth with you in any prolong fashion on the basis of that simple adage that we all know so well.  Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty but the pig likes it. I refuse to wrestle.”
