Repudiate Samuda and those like him

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I would like to commend Andre Wright, opinion editor of The Gleaner, for his excellent Public Affairs column titled 'Samuda's land grabbers', published on Sunday, October 23, 2016.

Regardless of our political beliefs, persuasion, and inclination, more well-thinking Jamaicans need to get up and support law and order. That is the only way that the 'prosperity for all' promised in the last general election by the Jamaica Labour Party is going to be achieved.

Mr Samuda, the minister of industry, commerce, agriculture and fisheries, and all others who think and speak and behave like him, need to be reminded that it is only when all Jamaicans, rich and poor alike, are helped to see and recognise that there is more to life than land grabbing, indiscipline, and lawlessness in this land that crime, human trafficking, lotto scamming, and bad-mindedness will cease.

S.T.
