Duke “sending a message” with THA row ahead of PDP elections

Minority Leader in the THA, Kelvon Morris, is suggesting that members of the public are the ones who will suffer as a result of any internal row in the THA leadership.

He made the comment amind an apparent row between Deputy THA leader Watson Duke and THA leader Farley Augustine.

Mr Duke came to the defence of 27 Tobagonians said to be stranded in Brooklyn, New York.

The Roxborough Follk Group reportedly went to the US with aid of THA to perform and represent the island and its culture.

In a social media video, Mr Duke claimed that due to insufficient arrangements, the group was made to bunk in people’s homes and rely on hand-outs for the duration of their stay.

He then called on “those who consider themselves to be the decision makers” in the THA to take action and tell the people why they were voted into office.

However, as he is the Deputy Chief Secretary, the only “decision makers” above him in the THA hierarchy is his party colleague, Chief Secretary, Farley Augustine.

Mr Morris, speaking this morning on Power 102 Digital’s Power Breakfast Show, claimed that Mr Duke appeared to be sending a message to someone ahead of PDP’s internal elections.

There has been no word yet from Mr Augustine in response to Mr Duke’s comments.
