The only female in the Cabinet is Lanisha Rolle.
We say quite frankly that she is not doing women any favours
for their reputations in politics. She appears to be as mad as a
As the day came to a close on Friday 17 May 2019, the news started going around that she had called the police to have her father escorted off the premises of her ministry. She didn’t use the local security guards of the Ministry but actually, led the police to have her father taken off. His offence, he said some uncomplimentary things about the Government on the Rodney Moncur Show at some earlier time.
Remember that she was moved from Social Services before there
would be a staff revolt and someone strangled her ass, and she was going to be put on the back bench but her special friend the Prime Minister was prevailed upon by her to be put in Sports, Youth and Culture, where she is wreaking havoc again.
Some people just don’t fit. She came to the Ministry with a reputation for telling people, they must stand when she enters a room. She has the reputation of a bully and has so far lived up to that reputation in the new ministry as being arrogant, stupid, ignorant and bumptious with it.
There have been no new policy initiatives. She just came back from a jaunt to Japan where The Bahamas team performed miserably at the IAAF Relays that this FNM Government cancelled here in The Bahamas.
She took her husband with her on the trip along with a coterie of officials, in the face of their cancellation of the IAAF Relays here in Nassau.
Most people, including her colleagues, think she is a fool. She is out of her depth both socially and intellectually.
At the end of the week came the news that the Deputy Permeant Secretary of the Ministry Darron Turnquest had called it quits and resigned. His Friends say that he was forced out by the Minister who tried to treat him as if he knew nothing. He felt he had no choice. He is a good FNM and now he too is gone. Such is life under
This is what happens when you put someone who is your close personal friend in a position for which they are not suited. The Prime Minister needs to fire her behind for her stupidity and
ineptness But he cannot do anything or fear that the real tale will be told.
We leave that there.
