At the top of our news, we told you that rumors are that Vega’s resignation is as a result of Minister Godwin Hulse taking over the Lands Department. While Hulse disagrees, we did ask him to respond to some comments that he is clamping down in the Ministry of Natural Resources as it relates to the massive discounts being given to politicians and their family members. Hulse says the rates are social rates and so there is no need for further discounts.
As it relates to big portions of land, Hulse says there are policies to be adhered to in order to acquire multiple acres of land.
Hulse went on to speak on his appointment as the Lands Minister by Prime Minister Dean Barrow.
