Morais Guy


The minister with responsibility for housing hit the front pages as he urged individuals who purchased lands in the Dallas Mountain area of St Andrew to quickly retrieve their money after the state-owned property was divided and sold illegally.


Lisa Hanna


It was back in the headlines for the youth and culture minister, as she disclosed the findings of a probe conducted by Children's Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison into the relocation of 34 wards of the state from the Sunshine Childcare Facility in St Catherine on February 15.


Portia Simpson Miller


There is no keeping the prime minister from the front pages at this time, but last week it was not her announcements on the political stage that made the headlines. It was her tabling of the long-promised sexual harassment bill in Parliament.


Donna Parchment-Brown


The new political ombudsman hit the front pages as she demanded that the two major political parties take steps to remove party flags hoisted in at least three Corporate Area communities.


Pamela Monroe Ellis


The straight-shooting auditor general was back in the news as she tabled a report on the Tablets in Schools project. Monroe Ellis reported that the Universal Service Fund spent $738.1 million on the project in the 2014-2015 financial year.


Marlene Malahoo Forte


The eagle-eyed opposition senator made the front pages as she spotted a clause in the DNA bill which spoke to a prison-transfer arrangement and the taking of samples from persons transferred to Jamaica to complete their sentences.
