Leon Natta-Nelson: With mounting national problems PM Harris
victimizes officer; promises NextGen will provide opportunities
Basseterre, St Kitts, September 12, 2019 – Leon Natta-Nelson, the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) candidate who is challenging St Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris for the St Christopher 7 seat in the upcoming general elections has criticized the prime minister for ordering the removal of civil servant for remarks he allegedly made.
Natta-Nelson pointed out that St Kitts and Nevis is faced with several major problems affecting the social and economic fabric of the twin-island federation and promised that the leadership of the NextGen St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party that he a part of will provide better opportunities for the people of St Kitts and Nevis.
“We have a mold problem in St Kitts. The Team Unity Government has made it into a mold disaster. We now have a water problem in St Kitts. We have a housing problem in St Kitts. We seem to be getting an electricity problem in St Kitts. We have a civil servants problem in St Kitts. We have a public life integrity problem in St Kitts. We have a CBI (Citizenship By Investment) problem in St Kitts with no new investors. We have a nepotism problem in St Kitts. We have a corruption problem in St Kitts and we have a squandering problem, according to Timothy Harris of EC$200 million in St Kitts,” Natta-Nelson told listeners to Wednesday’s edition of Freedom 106.5 FM Issues programme.
“Yet, yesterday (Tuesday), with all those major problems, the prime minister took time – wherever he found it from – because a citizen, a civil servant of this country pass a remark that was not favourable to his liking, and he got the information from his brother, Len Harris, he called the Comptroller of Customs and told the Comptroller to move this particular person from where he is working now, to another post,” Natta-Nelson informed.
“We have all these major problems in St Kitts. This how petty, this is how small-minded, this is how vindictive that this government is, Timothy Harris and his family,” he added.
Natta-Nelson, who was successful in obtaining a judgment in the High Court that although he is a civil servant, he has the constitutional right to participate in the electoral process as a candidate without having to resign from the public service, said the people of St Kitts and Nevis will soon have to make a choice in upcoming general elections.
“Do you want to squander your future? Do you want to squander your life? Do you want to squander the development and the progress of St Kitts and Nevis by Timothy Harris again or will you choose the young, capable, energetic, willing to serve Leon-Natta-Nelson and his colleagues to better the future for you, better the opportunities for you in St Kitts and Nevis. I ask you to consider, think about where is it this country is headed now and the possibilities that you can have with a NextGen SKN Labour Party leadership in this country.”
