Former Minister Herman Longsworth is also in the hot seat tonight as the Opposition Leader, John Briceno spoke of additional monies that were given to him for works on the Berger Field in Belize City.
Hon. John Briceno, Opposition Leader: “The truth of the matter s the Prime Minister well knows what has happened in his government and once again he continues to try to cover up and cover up; that’s what he’s been doing from day one. I mean it was just brought to my attention what Mr.Longsworth did when he was area representative. I’m told that he got I think a $30,000 donation to fix Berger Field, $30,000 from WASA and nothing was done. What happened to that money? And there are questions after questions of all his ministers and he continues to defend. I think in Spanish we have a simple word where we say ‘Basta’, you know like, enough. We’re just fed up of this crowd and the Prime Minister needs to act and he needs to act now and stop defend all the wrong doings that has happened under the most corrupt government this country has ever seen in its history.”
For now, it is just an allegation and our newsroom is investigating further to see what happened and when. We’ll keep you posted.
