During and post Village Councils(VC) Elections on July 14, UDP virulence at an all-time high
Santa Clara Village: After the VC elections as FB has taught us there are official swearing-in ceremonies. They are local and nice ceremonies where villages should show their harmony and good will. In Santa Clara, that was thrown out the window. As can be seen in an online video the incoming UDP Chairman is throwing and making good with a retaliatory punch/slap on the outgoing UDP chairlady. The raucous that followed showed some peacemakers but definitely the entire fracas was not worthy of leaders of our villages. Reports are that there is major disagreement with the use of funds by the outgoing VC. All in all, this is definitely NOT how Belize should be seen by the world. Viral videos usually are controversial and definitely infects our society.
Independence Village: A third video that will have its own virulence will be of a grader that was donated to the Independence VC. This grader was advertised extensively on the FB earlier this year before it was bought and after it was purchased. It was to bring development to the village and to be used during the surveying of lots etc. The labelling on the grader is clear as it being donated to the IVC. The harassment here is that the Chairlady is being denied what is clearly under her purview now. The past UDP council is refusing to handover the grader to the duly elected and new council. This might make its way to court but, as the video will show, there is no doubt about it. So why waste time? Call elections now….oh sorry… went off on a tangent there. Why waste time, hand over the grader.
Sandhill Village: Another video that is an instant hit shows a jittery Clear-the-Land Minister blowing kisses at a female PUP supporter since she was calling him out for lingering within the 100-yard limit at the polling area. This escalates to expletives being hurled and the cell phone capturing the video rudely knocked out of the hands of the Belizean woman. Now, Burrell Boom Village and Crooked Tree Village had gone Blue and this was Castro’s last stand. Sandhill would go on to vote Blue as well. The UDP fangs were out and shiny but now they are not even scratching anymore. Belizeans know what to do. They will go Blue even in the General. (will post vid ASAP)
