    I would say look at the priorities in sport. Football is the number one sport and Belize would get more returns in the investment through international publicity when they play international games. Spending in football is another issue.

    Building a fence for that much seems tooo much and worse that it is not finished. I think it deserves a closer look to the bids and reciept.

    Any civil NGO interested in this or perhaps the media????

    2.6M for a fence..please..This is just a way to finance someone’s campaign. The fence is still not finish so how much do u think it will cost to finish 5M…

    The NGOs, trade unions and some of the press are after their self interest. It seems though that now they don’t have a voice or they are afraid of King Dean. Where are the LEADERS of the ACB? The Amandala? KREM? Do you see Belizeans? They betrayed the populace. They were after what?

    first off all i think they shouldn’t even build a fence from the begining. there is alot
    of people here in our country that needs help, and that 2million just went down the drain.
    and i know that this part of the news has nothing to do with this but who the hell shyne thinks he is
    begging belizeans to help him, what is is nuts, when hw had all that money did he even think about
    belize or belizean people. i think he needs to kiss his dad u know what for help, people don’t fall for his crap he talking big with all these famous people that probably don’t want to have anything to do with his crap.
