The United States Government on Wednesday 7 March presented Sam Duncombe with an award on International Women’s Day. Sam Duncombe runs an organization called Re-Earth and was presented the award was as a nominee for the United States State Department’s International Woman of Courage Award founded by former U S Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The nomination is a mockery. Sam Duncombe’s organization is selective in its environmental zeal When the PLP is in power, they are active and running the PLP’s policies to the ground. When the FNM is in power, they can run over the earth with a tractor and well there is a little peep, but nothing to challenge the status quo. The US Embassy picture of the event showed not one PLP in sight. That should speak volumes.
