Former PUP Minister talks political clientelism

Post-independence political success has been largely hinged on money. That inescapable fact, as Dr. Dylan Vernon surmises in his recent book, is perhaps one of the roots of the messiness that is often the democratic process in Belize. Dr. Vernon talked to almost 50 past and current politicians to arrive at the key points his book makes. One of them is former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tourism and former Attorney General, Godfrey Smith. In his remarks at a virtual launch of Dr. Vernon’s book, the former Pickstock area representative spoke candidly on the culture of Prime Ministerial clinics.
