Godwin Hulse comments on Esquivel resignations

Godwin Hulse

Last week Thursday, former two-time U.D.P. Prime Minister Manuel Esquivel and his wife Cathy Esquivel officially resigned from all government positions held. They did so in protest, in the wake of their daughter Laura Esquivel Frampton being forced to resign from her position as Director of the Belize Tourism Board after a well-orchestrated and high level coup. The resignations of the elder Esquivels is extremely significant, so much so that it rated a lengthy discussion in Cabinet on Tuesday. Today Cabinet Minister Godwin Hulse told us that while tempers may be flaring at this point, he believes that fences will be mended with time.


Godwin Hulse, Cabinet Minister

“The right honourable Dr. Manuel Esquivel from where is sit is a very senior official, a very esteemed official in this party. In fact one of the founding and foundation member, a two time Prime Minister, a very well respected man. He had been given the position as advisor to the Prime Minister and sits on several boards. Again the Prime Minister is the leader of the country, is the leader of the party sand in whatever happened with the B.T.B. and Mr. Esquivel’s daughter which prompted Mr. Esquivel and Mrs. Esquivel to resign I can’t comment because I am only at this point able to say that I am sure that whatever has been done that prompted that I am sure will be mended. Mr. Esquivel is a dignified man, so is the Prime Minister and this party will hold together no matter what. This is not anything that will cause a fracture. I can appreciate however a response of course with your children, I would do the same. My pikney loose ih job, I would say it in Creole, my pikney loose ih job mi dad noh gwen up. But after the dust settles and I am calm I might say maybe I act differently in another set of circumstances.”

  1. Ali BaBarrow, in Belize there is no justice. says:

    Of the 40, Hulse is #1.

    Senior protector of Ali and his dominion, his chief spokesman, an unelected minister of the senate and head of the immigration ministry scandal. Penner is safe, an example for the rest of the 40 not to break ranks.

    An Admiral of Belize’s pirate navy, and the most dignified of the forty thieves.

    Esquivel? yesterday’s news. A tragedy we will soon forget.

    What is the story with the daughter? could not get along with Heredia? could not make her theft quota? exceeded her theft max for the week? Rejected bootyman’s call? Or not a thief and could not fit in?

    BTB and Ministry of Tourism are the only bright nugget of gold in the Belize economy. Thieving their has to be delicate and precise. Take it away and the whole country implodes.

  2. Black American says:

    I think that was extremely “Childish” for Mr. Esquivel and his wife to quit!! If their daughter was not performing productively they reserve “The RIGHT TO LET HER GO”!! Just because she is a former p.m daughter does NOT mean she is best suited for a position! It is almost as though they are throwing temper tantrum’s, again ;CHILDISH”. . And as far as the mother and father quiting I am sure their are other’s in Belize that are just as passionate about the various causes, SEEK THEM. Sometimes we forget Out with the old and in with the new. Their resignation might be a blessing, maybe new refreshed minds added to the party are in order for this party!!!
