By Jonel Powell MP Central Basseterre,
It was with deep, deep sadness that I learnt last night of the double murder of two promising young men from Central Basseterre. Lamont and Jahquan struck down in the prime of their lives.
Every single act of violence is one too many. We cannot afford for our McKnight, for our Federation, to be robbed of young people with so much potential.
Especially to the grieving mother’s, my constituents, Shawna and Jovanna and their families that have been torn apart by this senseless violence, please accept my heartfelt condolences. No parent should be left grieving their child.
This loss of young lives is a loss not only for the McKnight community but a loss for the entire Federation. We cannot and will not go back to a community where people feel fearful for themselves and their loved ones.
It is a difficult time for Central Basseterre but we will remain #McKnightStrong and fix this problem, together. 🙏🏾 RIP Monte, RIP Mini
