President of the Public Service Association, Watson Duke, has given a bold ultimatum to Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, calling on him to have the millions seized from the Drugs Sou Sou returned
In a live video posted to his Facebook page on Tuesday, the PSA Head gave a “deadline” of December 1st by which he believes the money should be returned.
Present at the meeting was DSS Founder, Kerron ‘Preeze’ Clarke.
Duke says his support for the DSS stems from the fact that several public servants were invested in the so-called sou-sou.
“I would say, not only many, but thousands of our members have invested in. We have been compiling a list. What you see here represents only about 200 members of the PSA that would have invested their money and that’s only what we have here,” he said.
He added: “I’m appealing to all the members of the PSA; all the members of NATUC including those daily paid workers in URP, CEPEP, those persons working on the farm, in the cloth store downtown, those who have invested their money in DSS, come and let us know your concern,” he pleaded.
But it the PSA President’s statements have been dismissed as “an insane rant” by the man who hopes to take his position when the PSA elections take place on November 23rd.
Nixon Callender distanced the PSA from both Duke and DSS, saying “Should there be any member or members of the PSA who has money invested in DSS, that is a matter of their own individual choice, and their investment stands to either gain or to lose.”
Describing Duke’s statement on his Facebook account as an “insane rant,” Callender said the issues surrounding DSS are a matter for the DSS and the State, and the PSA had no horse in that race.
“Should there be any member or members of the PSA who has money invested in DSS, that is a matter of their own individual choice, and their investment stands to either gain or to lose.”
