Kareem Musa Supports the New Minister of Health & Wellness

Kevin Bernard

Since the announcement on Monday that the Briceño administration has replaced Michel Chebat as Minister of Health and Wellness, we have been fielding various perspectives on the ability of his successor to reorganize the public health system amid the ongoing pandemic.  With former two-time Orange Walk Mayor Kevin Bernard at the helm, his cabinet colleagues are confident that he will be able to restructure the beleaguered Ministry of Health and Wellness.  Earlier today, we spoke with Home Affairs Minister Kareem Musa. He spoke candidly about the prime minister’s decision to reshuffle cabinet and the so-called unfair characterization of Chebat in some sectors of the media.

“I have to say that in every single cabinet meeting he was always prepared, always on top of the ball and certainly made some very good decisions in tough times, tough times, in terms of a pandemic that we’ve never seen before and I think the Ministry of Health, overall, needs to be commended because many times, like crime, whenever there is an issue the media tends to attack a particular minister, whether it’s crime or whether it’s health, but these are times of a pandemic and tough decisions have to be made and I think he made some good decisions but at the end of the day, the prime minister made a decision to reshuffle the cabinet, and like I said, I also believe Kevin Bernard is a good fit. I think Minister Kevin Bernard has a very proven track record, not just as mayor of Orange Walk Town in terms of his administration of the own but certainly in his one year of Minister of Youth, Sports and e-Governance he has certainly made a remarkable impact, particularly in e-governance and charting the way forward for us as a government in that particular field.  So I think that he’s going to be a good fit as Minister of Health.”
