Roger Anthony says safety of his workmen threatened by the series of events

The shooting incident this morning involving Cruz, an associate of Roger Anthony, is believed to have been retaliatory.  When we posed that question to him, Anthony said he cannot ascertain a connection between the two events.  The safety of his workmen, it would appear, is being threatened by the series of events, but Anthony says they have resigned themselves to fate.

“Does that incident on Sunday night have anything to do with what happened this morning in front of Mayflower Street?”

“How does this ensure the safety of your workmen though, I mean, this may seem to be something that is following you or may be connected to you in some way or the other?  Do you fear as though your workmen’s lives may be in jeopardy as a result of what is happening?”


Voice of: Roger Anthony

“Yeah eena wah way but still we noh fraid fi nobody, we noh fraid fi nothing yo undastand check, once ih happen ih happen yo dig check.  So ih noh matta mein we wah continue work.  We think bout it, dehn talk bout it and den deh but we just di show society that we di try do right things you undastand so dat noh wah bring we down.  We wahn continue work yo undastand.”


And as we said, Cruz is tonight on life support having undergone surgery today to repair the damage caused by bullets to the abdomen. Should he recover, another round of surgery is expected.

  1. dats just gud says:

    I blame the Police, Politicians and the People of Belize to be tolerating this foolishness. We all know who these GANG’s are and their affiliates, lets eradicate them just like the George Street slaying and have a peaceful Belize thereafter…….

    Note that even if my children or any family member are a part of these GANG I vote same……that how we ought to be, don’t hide nobody…….
