Dominican economist and JMEC colleagues brief South Sudan legislators

JMEC delegation with Members of South Sudan’s Transitional National Legislative Assembly (TNLA)

Senior Economic Advisor on the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) in South Sudan, Dr. Thomson Fontaine, was part of a JMEC delegation that briefed members of South Sudan’s Transitional National Legislative Assembly (TNLA) on Friday April 27.

The JMEC was established in 2015 to oversee the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan.

The JMEC team led by Chief of Staff Ambassador Berhanu Kebede met the  members of the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) committee of the TNLA, headed by the Chairperson Hon. Adeng Leek Deng, at the TNLA headquarters in Juba.

This consultative meeting focused on the importance of the CDF and also on the Enterprise Development Fund (EDF), two key organs stipulated in Chapter IV of the Peace Agreement.

Dr. Fontaine briefed the members on the critical role of the EDF in generating employment opportunities within the private sector, marginalised groups including youth and women and the development of Micro-Medium and Small Enterprises (MMSEs).

“The TNLA has a vested interest in ensuring that the EDF becomes operational since its successful implementation can go a long way in contributing towards much-need economic growth in South Sudan,” Dr. Fontaine noted.

JMEC Senior Economic Advisor, Dr. Thomson Fontaine (center) makes a point during the meeting. With him are JMEC Chief of Staff Ambassador Berhanu Kebede and Deputy Chief of Staff (Strategy), Ambassador Mahen Kundasamy

 He also stressed to the members the critical importance of generating sustained growth within the economy.

“Ultimately, the CDF will benefit with higher contributions as the economy improves with a consequent positive impact on government revenues,” Dr. Fontaine added.

Ambassador Kebede gave an update on the status of implementation of the 2015 Peace Agreement, on the Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities and the High level Revitalization Forum (HLRF).

“We hope this process (of revitalization) will give birth to an inclusive political process and permanent ceasefire to South Sudan,” he said.

The Chief of Staff asked the MPs to be peace ambassadors in their respective constituencies.

“Commit yourselves to the full implementation of the Agreement at the grass roots level in order to bring about sustainable peace,” Ambassador Kebede noted.

He reiterated that the revitalization process is not a renegotiation of the Peace Agreement, but is meant to enhance inclusivity of all stakeholders and to resuscitate the 2015 Peace Agreement and discuss concrete measures to immediately restore the permanent ceasefire.

Ambassador Kebede said the process is also meant to restore full and inclusive implementation of the Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (ARCSS), and to develop a revised and realistic timeline and implementation schedule towards democratic elections at the end of the transition period.

    Francisco, we sin in our thoughts, words and deeds. (action), however it begins in our mind; because our mind is the battlefield.
    Changing our mind about a wrong action does not make us renewed. It happens all the time. So many people have ceased with the consumption of excessive alcohol. Does that mean that they have repented (according to God’s laws?)
    repentance means that we stop breaking God’s laws and turn away from them, confess that Jesus died for us with our lips and believe in our hearts.
    When this happens, our life takes a turn. We read the bible, pray more, and follow the commandments and statutes of God. If we have truly repented we must show the fruits of the spirit!
    Any other repentance makes the cross of none effect! There are religious sects who are very strict… don’t smoke, don’t drink, always pray to a god…. but do not confess Jesus Christ.
    Is the cross effective in this manner?

      continuation:
      How do we say that we have renewed our mind and not feed the hungry, clothe, the needy, show mercy to our enemies? Wouldn’t we be needing an action to do that?
      You see, the people with the written law forced the law on others while they disobeyed. They believed in their lips and not in their hearts so The father was fed up with the animal sacrifices.
      You cannot live a victorious christian life without the Holy Spirit!
      I am not trying to prove that i know the bible but saying what i know is right. I pray before i comment and do not expect any praise because this is the devils world!
      I also cannot know the bible unless the Holy Spirit reveals it to me. Man oh Man.
      Anyway, go through this excerpt from CNN. (It can be found on youtube on this link)
      Bible End Times Prophecy: False Prophet Jose Luis Jesus Miranda
      May God bless you Francisco. I know you mean good.

    Congratulations are in order for this illustrious son of the soil. He continues to accumulate knowledge and invaluable international experience in preparation of his stint as the next Finance and economic development minister of Dominica.
    Well done Dr. Fontaine. All the best to you.

    Thompson Fontaine is a guy who keeps on running and when he finds himself in deep waters, he runs back home like the prodigal son. The Government asked him to assist them since he worked at the IMF and he refused. We are doing better without him, he’s not the only bright mind in Dominica when it comes to Finance and Economics.

      If someone tell you to jump would you ask how high or you would just jump regardless, therefore I would suggest that you get your facts up to date before posting because you never have facts correct, and don’t just believe fake statements research for yourself. Now we need the caliber of Dr. Thompson which you could never fulfill so educate yourself with facts.

    Great Job Mr. Fountain ,
    A king is never recognized in his land. So its sad but true. there are so many Dominicans overseas doing great Jobs. Not because they don’t love their country ,but that Dominica time and time again doesn’t seem to recognize and support their own. Instead Dominicans can be so critical of their fellow men, that its sad to see. Yet they cannot do better.
    Continue to show your Colours . they will surely appreciate your Advise.
    THIS IS DOMINICAS LOST NOT YOURS.

      You reap what you sow if your party plant the hateful behavior and attitude and disrespect for one another then that’s what you going to get, so your message should be directed to those at the top and hopefully it will work it’s way down, stop using a brush to paint a wide swipe bring it closer to get result be brave to face those at the top of the poll. Good luck. The names you mentioned took care of the people and they didn’t disrespect the people they are in a class by themselves.

    With a mentor like the Rt Honourable Dr. Skerritt as his boss, Dr Fontaine is eminently placed to lecture a lawless country about how to maintain 100% disdain and disregard for any kind of legal process and to profit from it.

    • One of the reasons some of you do not have a name is because, you lie on people, and avoid law suits. If you had a name Thomson could have sued you!

      A few summers ago I was at the house of someone in Canada; a friend  who held a position in the DAAS, in a position to know, when his phone rang, someone from Dominica called and questioned him concerning the same crap you do not know anything about.

      The politician in Dominica a lawyer was digging; trying to get dirt on Fountain: I heard from the mouth of the man in Canada who knows for a fact Thomson did not steal nor thief any DAAS money told the man in Dominica Thomson did not steal any money. Clayton Shillingford who was the President of the DAAS told you all he did not steal any money; and here you are a dirty nobody, scumbag of the earth without a name or face talking about he has sticky fingers.

      You should be made to pay for you dirty tongue!

    Are you still not getting the point? We keep looking up to man for solutions while God Almighty is leaning forward waiting for us to call on Him! Is Mr. Fountain the only man with this credential in the world? If not why is the entire world in economic panic?
    It is not with any political leader or with man. IT IS WITH JESUS CHRIST! Those who oppose, say why you oppose. Don’t you understand that the world’s fate lies in our relationship with the Most High? It has been written!!!! Humble ourselves, turn from our wicked ways (ignoring God), seek His face and then we will begin getting results because He will hear from heaven, forgive our sins AND HEAL OUR LAND!
    Aren’t we seeking healing for our land? It is written with a condition that WE YIELD!
    What is man!
    The wind, sun, waters and earth obey Him! What is man! A simple knock in the head, a simple fall on the spine, a minute virus….. What are we thinking?
    Wake up people! we are going down!
    Glory and praise to God!

    • Guy in Dominica there is a term I heard ever since I was a kid; it is a patios word “sot!” I believe in the English language it means stupid!

      To me you are very stupid!

       God did not create stupid people; however, he looks after children and fools. You can pray to God as much as your wish, for as long as you like, there will be no change in your life until you take some form of action in order for a change to become effective.

      God do not drop money and food from the sky; he does not feed people with manna, and has not done so since the children of Israel was brought out of Egypt okay! Thomson is not the only man in the world with his credentials but the fact remains he is a Dominican born, which you an idiot should learn to appreciate.

      If you had a little commonsense near what Fountain has you would not write this pile of garbage; you are simple jealous of Fountain; God do not like jealousy!

        April 30, 2018

        The patois word “sot” is also translated ” as fool in the bible”.
        I also agree that action must be taken in order for God to reach out to us. So tell me, isn’t repentance taking a step to God? If He is the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow, is He not capable of taking care of His children?
        Jesus asked a question. “When I return will i find faith?” Are you saying that man is more capable than God? Even the Devil quoted parts of psalm 91 to Jesus after His fast so speaking about God or the bible does not qualify an individual to personally know Him!
        Read 1 Corinthians 2:10-16.
        Do you know that the wisdom of man cannot measure to the foolishness of God? (you know there is none) Now jealousy and anger are related to strongmen of the devil! Does your tone indicate anger and pride? It is for you to judge. Not me.
        My prayer is that you simmer down and search yourself! You don’t support Skerrit but you quote the bible and hate him altogether. Is this taking a step…

      • Let me tell you the word “repentance”  simply means the changing of ones mind!  Indulged in doing something wrong; whatever it is was conceived in my mind, if I wake one day, decide not to continue that habit; I would have changed my mind, hence I would have repented!

        And while we are at it your talk will be about sin; so here it is “sin” which is the braking of the law be it man’s or God Law. If the speed limit is 25 miles per hour, and I exceed it by one mile going 26 miles per hour, I would be committing a sin, driving faster than the posted limit.

        The fact is sir, if everybody including Roosevelt Skerrit decide to gather, and say let us this day repent of our sins, and stop the evil in this country, everybody accept Jesus Christ; and then they go home sit around and pray nonstop to God, there would not change change would automatically  unless something is done by moving of the hands and feet!

        You need to understand the Bible before you quote scriptures.

      Where in the entire world there is an economic panic; in your backward world?

      This is why Jesus said: (and this is not verbatim to the scriptures) in that day some will ask him didn’t I cast out demons in your name? Jesus will answer yes, but I know you not! It is ignorant, and uneducated people like you which cause Dominica to be in this state of poverty.

        recession is an economic panic. Tell me kind sir, do we have the gold to back our dollar or are we just printing currency? You are aware that america has had two great recessions right? (Greece, Ireland, Italy….
        Jesus gave the story of a widow and the judge. He said to continue in fervent prayer. Are you taking His place discouraging poor people from praying? If you read the scriptures, you will notice that Jesus speaks compassionately about the poor, widow, children….about being patient, kind, humble…..
        Listen, I have one first degree and 85% done with another, but this will go to the grave with me.
        What will last are the things of God!
        So will your cunning and education be buried with you!
        If there is one battle you will lose, it will be against the living God! You should have quoted that too.
        Love you bro. Let us work out our salvation in fear and trembling!

That analy thomas chick must ‘ave just met a pastor she is smitten with, that’s most likely why her recent sudden new found comments style is spitting out bible.

    I for one has never doubted Dr Fountains abilities here. If one is to follow my comments on this medium it is clear that I support and encourage quality education.i know Thompson is bordering on genius. My issue with fountain is that he goes down to the gutter with all of these uneducated people, whether within or without his party, and it seem to negate his credentials. However, i am happy about this piece. Would like to hear Simeon Albert’s view on this.

      In 2018 honestly, what BS nonsense comment is this that I am reading in respect to our world renowned Economist Dr. Thompson Fontaine. Who on earth id this Gallileo? Your issue is Fountain is that “he goes to the gutter of these uneducated people..” Really, which uneducated people and who in the Gutter are you referring to. This insulting script is written by some illiterate Labourite possible on behalf of his corrupt inept Prime Minister, who has failed our own poor. Skerrit and his corrupt band just are not able and qualified enough to sit in a conference room with Dr Fontaine to discuss matters of states financial affairs, like we see in the photo shot above. I guarantee you that this illiterate script has been initiated by the illiterate Supremo team. Shame of you the person who pen this nonsense.

Dr. Fontaine bringing himself in the gutter by the company he keep. Show me your friends I will tell you who you are. is not people that bringing down Dr. Fontain. He bringing down himself. I always mention Why Ms Rebecca Theodore bail out from them? I still want to know what happen with Rebecca and Lennox Linton at the Caricom conference at the UN last year. This woman was fighting for Lennox and after the conference she drop him like a hot potato. Is either her bosses tell her something about Lennox or he embarrass her. Dr. Fontaine must learn if you lie with dogs he get up with fleas. We respect Dr. Fontaine. We hate his company he keep

  14. My little take
    April 28, 2018

    The rest of the world sees Dr. Fountain as an important piece of the puzzle, while in his home country of Dominica, Skerrit and Tony do their best to jail him because as far as they are concerned, Dr. Fontaine is a reminder that sons and daughters of farmers were able to attend University while Skerrit sees the farm as something he should destroy to make way for his passport program.

    Thank you DNO, for this news item. One week ago, Tony was telling listeners to Kairi, Dr. Thomson Fontaine was accusing Roosevelt Skeritt of corruption, presently he being employed by a corruptive Government. Calypso King Bobb, sang it right in his song, when people don’t like you, regardless to what you do right, they just don’t like you, they will never like you. Regardless to how high Dr. Fontaine raises the flag of Dominica for the world to see, the likes of Tony, don’t like him, they will never appreciate what he is doing for Dominica.

    Dr Fontaine had earlier claimed that he was engaged as an economic advisor to the South Sudan government. It turns out that he has been serving on a Monitoring and Evaluation Commission set up under an Agreement on the resolution of conflict in that war torn country.
    What Dr Fontaine refrained from highlighting is that there is no hope of economic development in South Sudan unless the waring factions lay down their weapons(literal or otherwise) and work together in the interest of the country! Maybe it’s obvious why the economist turned politician would have focused on job creation and not on ending the “tribal politics” which has been responsible for the very sad situation existing in South Sudan! Dr Fontaine there will be no economic growth in South Sudanin spite of the country’s vast oil reserves unless and until the waring factions decide to settle their differences peacefully!!!

    And we can’t use these men to help develop D/ca :-D

  18. I wonder after all the corrupted gang of t…..s in the Labor Party said about Thomson Fountain, when they went up and down Dominica; lying on him, assassinating his character. How does it feel now to see Thomson a native village boy, born in our country literally appointed to help construct the forming of a new country, and government?
     
    Thomson Fountain is not a man who graduated out of Punjab University, nor in the Jungles of Guyana, in South America, his doctoral degree was not bought! 

    As an economist Thomson he’s a practitioner in the social science discipline of economics. I am sure he may have also study, develop, and apply theories and concepts from economics, and write about “economic policy.” The latter might be one of the reasons the British Government sort him out for the job.

    The job Thomson was called upon to do in setting up that government, nobody in the Labor Government in Dominica is capable of doing his job!

    Thomson academic abilities; good…

    • Continue:

      Thomson academical abilities are good internationally; his academia places him among other Black men, and women, who writes and dictates how a government is set up, and the policies involved in the everyday functioning of the new South Sudan government. 

      Dominica is on the brink of collapsing; yet Roosevelt new economic policy is to appoint more government ministers, and constituency caretaker as in Wesley where the people of the villages of Wesley and Woodford Hill rejected her last election!

      Why?

      Because they know she cannot read: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

      Roosevelt has this woman wrecking havoc in Wesley dividing families even her own family, many of whom actually despise her, but such are the people who did not finish elementary school Roosevelt wants to become government minister.

      Roosevelt believe she is great for Dominica, but as for Thomson Fountain the cabal elevates people like that woman who did not finish elementary school, and who can…

        Fransisco, the leader of UWP can read but he cannot reason but you want to put him in charge of Dominica. The problem is not Dr. Fontaine. It is his low company he keep. Dr. Fontaine is a PhD why is he in company with Lennox Linton that cannot reason. Dominica will surely collapse if we dont make Lennox. go to night school

      • Stevens, Thomson Fountain is not “a Ph.D: there are no such persons; however he has a Ph.D in the scientific  discipline of economics!

        Look at it this way; you cannot say one who earns a masters degree in any discipline ” is a masters.” Nor someone like me who has two bachelors in science degree in electronics, and electrical engineering, a bachelor in science, because there are no such person!

        We simply earn such degrees, hence Thomson name on paper can be written thus: “Thomson Fountain Ph.D.”

        Or simply Dr. Thomson Fountain. Now that Dr. is different to a medical doctor. If I was a medical doctor, perhaps my name could be written this: Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque M.D. Even if the abbreviation Dr. did not appear  anywhere in front or behind of my name the letters: M. D., would have  identify me as a medical doctor!

        You need to stop about low company, because if you are talking about Lennox; you might hate him; but you do not know him, my late grandmother was his…

      • You need to stop about low company, because if you are talking about Lennox; you might hate him; but you do not know him, my late grandmother was his aunt; I can tell you we are not low people!

        Lennox Linton father and mother were educators, served in many schools all over Dominica, both retired as principles of schools in Dominica, Lennox mother was one of the first to be sent to the Leward Island Teachers Training in Antigua, around 1966/67, and when almost all the teachers from Dominica who went her failed their graduating exams, she passed.

        After retirement Lennox father served in a Labor Government as the minister of Education, so keep that in mind Lennox Linton is not a nobody!

        The Alfred’ Telemaque,  Linton, James Provost of Dominica are not nobody people! All such blood is in me!

    Its amazing the rest of tbe world have use for Dominican talent except Dominica.

      We do have use for his talent that’s why the UWP has embraced him. Crispin Gregoire was engaged in the same activities and more with impeccable credentials and experience. But just because he didn’t like the way Skeritt dem went about bypassing then PM Pierro to hold talks with China (which I must admit was a winning move) they literally abandoned him at the UN. Bad move! Too bad. Dominica could have benefited emmencely from that talent and experience. And we did. The few times the anti-Pierro boys talked with their UN Ambassador then, He got the geothermal project started, his brain-child. Today many here are elbowing to take credit for geothermal. I sincerely hope that they don’t kill it after such outpouring of international support he ochestrated from Iceland to New York. It is what it is, we still stand to Benefit from these talents.

      Dr. Fountain started a export business, I wonder what happened to that? His partner Lugay publicly claims that he is hungry and broke. Fontaine had an opportunity to serve when Dominica was implementing austerity measures the money was too small so he passed on the opportunity. When it comes to Dominica Dr. Fontaine waste his talent on spreading political propaganda and as such his skills are a wasted currency in Dominica.

      • Anon, you are a confounded fool, you are an idiot! The only people in Dominica who are not hungry for food and money arr Roosevelt Skerrit, and the people in his Cabal.

        The people who sells Dominica passports, and steal the proceeds are the only ones who are not hungry; the chosen Labor Party supporters who are recipients of the donated money given to government to reconstruct Dominica after Maria are all happy and fed; all else are hungry.

        You need to stop this nonsense about Luga said he is hungry; that is so stupid, he gets a small cheque as am member of parliament, there are four weeks in a month, if his hunger is for food, his small check will help.

        There are people in Dominica this very day if some neighbor do not help with something eat,they will stave, and that did not happen because of Erika, no Maria!

        For the past eighteen (18) years poverty and hunger under Skerrit has overwhelm our nation period!

      the rest of the world? South Sudan???

      Why hasn’t he presented himself in a more positive manner to help Dominica rather than spending hours on end presenting Dominica to the rest of the world as the worse country on earth?.

      He seem to be more consumed in his efforts to destroy Skerrit than helping in Dominica’s development. It’s like Skerrit had something to do with his demise at the IMF. If he is so damn good, why is he not at the IMF? Did he resign from such a lucrative job to help Dominica or was the IMF unhappy with him?

      • You all are so stupid; you people do not take time to understand what is happening in Dominica. You all turn your backs on him when it was time to vote for him. You all believe the crap, the rumors, and lies Roosevelt  and the idiots who follows him told about Fountain!

        Academically educated; the man taught economics in a University in the United States, he was employed by the World Bank. Good enough to hold such positions, in foreign lands, but in Dominica he is treated as a dog!

        The British Government recruited him for that job, they contacted him, and offered him the job, he did not write a resume and send it out hunting for that job; he did not crawl and beg for that job!

        When you ask why he did not position himself to do squat in Dominica, if you mean he must be “labor” he does not want to have anything to do with corruption and thievery!

        Everybody cannot sing praises to god Roosevelt!

        Shut up!

      I am happy that Dr. Fontaine can be of assistance to that country but I think they need more help than Dominica. According to Trump, South Sudan is the definition of a shit hole country.

      • I am surprise at your comment, remember the native Sudanese a black people. Our nation Dominica comprises a majority of black people, run by Black people. Donald regards every nation of Black people “Shit-Hole Country, hence; he is talking about Dominicans and Dominica also.

        Be informed Southern Sudan is wealthy, research it before you help an idiot like Donald Trump criticize, ridicule, and downgrade,  us as a people!

        With Donald Trump, its all about hate; hating us “Black People.” In Trump mind; Black people are nothing! Do not support his crap, for you to quote Donald Trump is the same as if it was your idea to classify Black people country, including Dominica as shit-hole country.

        Remember what happened to the DASS. The reason why he is in Sudan is because he can’t get a job elsewhere. he had it made as he said now go as credit union if you credit record is bad you screwed.

All you put Skerrit at thee top and look what yo get, poverty, corruption, bool, laziness and poor vision to develop out ailing poor country, and you waste your time worrying about Fontaine, a well known decent an worldwide and not recognised in his own island, and yo all rather promote and worship ridiculous Skerrit, loud Mouth Tony and the other failed clowns and followers of Skerrit.
        Great job Thompson, we recognise you and applaud and yes we need you in Dominica along with Hon Linton and the UWP professional and decent team.

        To get the pipeline unblocked and removing the junk(as you claim) you need a good and proper solvent and ONE does not see that in the UWP. UWP is the biggest piece of JUNK in Dominica’s pipeline; and time after time UWP is getting worst.
