Peter Bunting

 

The National Security Minister was the talk of the town last week after launching a scathing 'John Crow' attack on some members of the leadership of the opposition Jamaica Labour Party during an address at a political meeting last Sunday. Bunting later used the floor of Parliament to say sorry even as he remained under pressure for the climbing murder rate.

The three women were among the more than 20 persons murdered across the island last week as criminals continued the orgy of crime which has left more than 650 persons dead across the island since the start of the year.

 

Alvas Powell

 

The 20-year-old defender walked out on Jamaica's national football team then said sorry sparking a raging debate that has threatened to overshadow the good work of the Reggae Boyz who have impressed at the CONCACAF Gold Cup now underway.

 

Ronald Thwaites

 

The Minister of Education just keeps finding himself on the front pages and last week was no different as he announced that a manual dubbed 'Security and Safety Guidelines' is being prepared to form part of schools' curriculum for the next academic year. Thwaites also announced that the bullying of homosexuals in schools was also being addressed.

 

Mark Golding

 

The justice minister signed the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) (Automatic Expungement of Convictions) Order, 2015 which allows for persons to have their records expunged in relation to minor ganja related offences.

 

OMI

 

The young man from Clarendon provided one of the feel good stories of the week as he stormed to the top of the Billboard chart with his smash hit Cheerleader before appearing as a guest on 'Good Morning America' on ABC and the Tonight Show on NBC.
