Faber on Government on GOB Southside Development Zone

The Leader of the Opposition also took on the issue of crime that continues to plague Southside Belize City. In response to the Prime Minister’s recent announcement that the Southside would be declared a special development zone, Faber accused the Government of having no real plan to tackle crime.

“Kareem Musa has, when in Opposition, made interview after interview to the media proclaiming that he had solutions. Plan Belize outlined all kinds of strategies they would do. You have the Prime Minister talking up a storm of what he would have done on the Southside when similar type situations flared up in Belize City. I see that he is now trying to do a camouflage job of declaring the Southside some sort of development area, because people called him out on it. Because, they brought back the clips of what he said he would do. And some of these things are not going far enough, in terms of helping our residence in Southside. They have a lot to say about Southside representatives, and there must be a reason why people continue to vote for UDP on the Southside. We work with people and we try to develop their lives. It is a tough job and it is one of the most difficult areas of our country to serve as a representative.”
