U.D.P. Condemns School Warden Terminations

The United Democratic Party today condemned this week’s mass firing of school security wardens. The party says the action occurred just as schools are returning to face to face learning, and one year after transport workers were sent home. The party claims the terminations are politically motivated. They say twenty wardens from the Belize and Stann Creek Districts were let go without any social support in place and have now lost their only income. The U.D.P. is calling on both the Special Envoy for Women and Children and the Minister of Education to do “what is right for all those single mothers and children being affected by this latest act of victimization”. On Monday’s newscast, News Five spoke with the coordinator of the School Wardens Program in the Ministry of Education, Rafael Sosa. He said the wardens list had to be updated because it contained several instances of people being paid, but who were not reporting for duties or who had not even been assigned a school.
