Dominica PM blue vex

A deeply disturbed prime minister Roosevelt Skerrit on Friday said he was really upset with certain elements in the country who, in his estimation, were seeking to undermine the future of the Dominican people.

At his daily media briefing the prime minister called on those who were using social media and other methods to spread false information to stop it.

“This talk about food supplies and partisanship with food supplies and politicians are the ones dealing with the delivery of food supplies – this is total nonsense,” a visibly upset Skerrit said at the briefing which was carried live on social media.

“As the prime minister of this country, I sleep on the floor. As the prime minister of this country, I bathed this morning from a bucket of water. I don’t eat corned beef, I don’t eat sardines, so where the hell am I going to put corned beef or stock up sardines at my home or anywhere else?” he demanded to know.

Skerrit explained that while relief supplies were coming in, there were limitations in terms of places to store the supplies in communities because every single home in the country was damaged during the passage of Hurricane Maria on September 18.

He further reported that the distribution of supplies was being managed by the international aid agencies.

“People who are seeking to undermine the government’s effort of bringing relief and bringing aid and bringing restoration of services to our country, need to stop it,” he said.

“We can’t be going out there on social media, on the radio and elsewhere and making these unfounded, baseless, malicious allegations. It’s not going to hurt me and this thing must stop. Because it’s really p…. me off that there are people out there talking a bunch of nonsense about food supplies.

“All of these attempts are geared to undermine our efforts,” the angry leader said, adding that “this damn country has been destroyed. It’s been devastated. Schools are destroyed and people are out there talking a bunch of nonsense about food supplies and political interference”.

The prime minister said his mandate was to ensure that his country had adequate supplies to get to every single home and every single individual in Dominica.

“This is really, really p…. me off and I am very upset about what some people are doing in this country. We have to stop it. There are people ‘bussing’ their asses out there seeking to bring a better way of life for our people,” he said, adding that “the only people who will be affected by this are the most vulnerable in our country; the people whose homes have been destroyed, who do not know where they will be sleeping tonight; the people who do not know whether when Monday comes if they will have a job; who do not know how they are going to pay their mortgages.

“I am telling you I am really p…. off and I have not gotten p . . .  off since the hurricane but this nonsense must stop. What the hell, we have to stop it. Do we want to wake up one morning and have no government in place to run this country?”

Skerrit said he will address the nation tonight to give a full update on the relief efforts thus far.

    Prime minister Skerrit please calm down,I do understand your frustration, however I can see you love Dominica,but your country has suffered major devastation, people are frustrusted right now and they will be misunderstandings, this is still not an excuse for people to tell lies on you,but remain strong.
    Prayer and ask the Lord for guidance before you speak,I know it isn’t easy but the lord will vindicate you and help you through it all,and always remember regardless of what good you try to do,people will always find fault,so don’t feed into those kind of people.
    Surround yourself with praying,positive people who will motivate you to be strong, and keep trusting in God and you will get through this very trying time,and remember I am praying for you and your nation as well!

    As a survivor of a hurricane and a disaster manager, it is always frustrating when people who dont know what is going on have so much to say. THey always spread propaganda and create disharmony. However, Hon. Prime Minister, know that this come with the territory. You cannot respond to everything as it will kill you. However, everyone also need to know that you have been traumatised. People do not understand that the impact of such a traumatic event stays with you for a long time. You are not even recuperating yet. I was in charge of a department and after Hurricane Ivan in 2004 it took me ten days before I even saw my house to see what damage had been caused. Then it took me two years after the hurricane to realise how much it had affected me. One day two years after Ivan, I was lying down reading a book when I suddenly realised that my heart was pounding. I was having extreme palpitations. The doctor pointed out that because I had been so busy with recovery of my department, taking care of my staff, I had not noticed it but he believed it was present. THe point is, people need to stop talking and simply work together to bring things back to as normal as normal can be. PM you are doing an outstanding job and we wish you and your people well.

    Pertaining to the distribution of supplies in a non-partisan way, he indeed stated, ” ……the distribution of supplies was being managed by the international aid agencies.”
