LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sorhaindo’s nauseating attempts to tarnish my good name

Dr. Thomson Fontaine

Allow me an opportunity to respond to Rupert Sorhaindo vicious and unprovoked assault on my good name and character in a Letter to the Editor dated May 6, 2018 and captioned ‘Dr. Fontaine’s deceit exposed’.

For the record let me state that Sorhaindo’s attempt to call me a liar for stating that I was appointed as a Senior Economic Advisor to the government of South Sudan can only be viewed as a statement of a man groveling at the feet of the Skerrit Administration and eager to score points for whatever reward he has been promised.

Indeed since 2016 Sorhaindo has waged an unrelenting attack against my person, largely in the New Chronicle, in the name of politics. His approach fits the so-called strategy of the Dominica Labour Party to do everything possible to tarnish my solid name and reputation within the Dominican public.

Part of that had to do with his persistent lie that I somehow took land belonging to the DAAS even after the owners of Rosalie Estate confirmed that I had purchased the land for a sum of $66,000 and that the piece of land in question had nothing to do with the DAAS.

Sorhaindo must be possessed by that spirit of his white ancestors who owned slaves in the Delices area. It is hard for him to countenance that me a child of relatively poor black people could rise to such world prominence in my area of work.

I was initially surprised by the viciousness of his attack in the newspaper and responded to him privately because after all Sorhaindo should know me quite well.

Firstly, he taught me at the St Mary’s Academy, secondly we taught together for three years at the SMA and later for six years I taught while he was principal at the Clifton Dupigny Community College, now the State College. At no time within that period we worked together did he have any reason to question my professionalism, integrity, honesty and competence. Indeed my hard work getting near hundred percent passes for the economics and statistics students year after year at the college made him look good.

The prospect of a seemingly old man living in near obscurity in Dominica trolling the internet looking for proof of my appointment in South Sudan is indeed laughable. This shows how far this regime is prepared to go in their sick pursuit of tarnishing my impeccable image in the name of politics.

So allow me to set his mind at ease. The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) was set up by the guarantors of the Peace Agreement in South Soudan in 2015 following a bitter civil war, which broke out in 2013. JMEC’s mandate is to oversee implementation of the Peace Agreement during the three year transition period.

During that time a transitional government of National unity was set up together with a Transnational Legislative Assembly. There were specific recommendations developed within the context of the Peace Agreement including in the areas of Security, Governance, Justice, Economic and Humanitarian affairs.

The transitional government is charged with implementing the specific recommendations of the chapter within the Peace Agreement pertaining to the economy, for which I am responsible. Since arriving in South Sudan last May I have given specific policy advice to the government through JMEC with regards to the economy and recently briefed the Legislators. Further, I have assisted in helping draft a Strategic Development Plan for South Sudan designed to allow the country to successfully negotiate the transition.

Whatever drives Sorhaindo’s persistent mean-spirited and envious attacks against me can only be reconciled in his own warped mind. Let’s hope that he can further reconcile his blatant and disgusting attacks against me with whatever reward he has been promised or may have already received.

    I have lost all respect for you Rupert. It is because of you that I pursued one of my careers as a forensic technician with an increased love of science. If I had known that behind this vivacious teacher was to be this grudging old man, I think I would have switched to the arts.

    Now everyone knows that you are butt kissing, but especially with your boy in that position at the manufacturing plant paid for by CBI monies, we know you have to kiss up some more – nothing being sacred.

    But Thompson Fontaine with all respect to you, You were engaged and still engaged in tarnishing the name of the Prime Minister and Government.

    So how does it feel??? The Golden rule – Do unto others as you would like them to do for you.

    Have u Thompson Fontaine ever stopped to think how the Honourable Prime Minister feels when you and your group (associations) say all those things about him and others? You can never provide facts and trying to work on the minds of the ignorant to cause war and strife.

    Take it. How does it feel. Conscience conscience be your guide. Stop using those who do not understand about government’s regulations and order to satisfy your personal agenda of winning an election to be in Government. Government is a serious thing & you will be accused criticized because you and your group set the pace.

      The Prime Minister, this failed sitting PM, holding this decent seat is a public servant(a position he does not deserve to hold) and is accountable to us Dominicans, not Tony Astaphan, the disappointed one. Dominicans and all those like JI, who has jumped ship from a decent party and now rubbing themselves on failed government led by Skerrit. I believed they do so to get what they want that they not really deserved., not have country first, an island in deep poverty, corruption and deceitfulness.
      Skerrit must Go. And for your information ?????????????????, it is Skerrit who has tarnished his own name big time. When you circle about and in the company of strange fellows, you will be stained, like you are now.
      Thompson is honourable, has reached a standard that those who talk about him must kno he is a decent top ranking public officer having served at the IMF and engaged in top quality work. What expertise has Skerrit got to be called to the professional circle. ? The art of Bobol. ??

    DNO – please permit me an additional note to give my classmate some public advise:

    Thomson Fontaine – the simple way to stop the “personal attacks” upon your reputation and character – is for YOU repudiate those on your team whom have practiced this dark art of the politics of personal destruction. Ask them to apologize to their victims.

    Let the chips fall where they may on that DAAS ting and land purchased from an estate. Make the closing documents of you purchasing the land from Rosalie Estate public – and let others do the judging.

    BUT you should have know – that when you live in a glass house – you don’t throw or help others throw stones at other’s “glass” houses.

    Remember – What’s Good for the Goose Is Good for the Gander!

    Mr Sorhaindo what is your beef with the good Dr. Should you not be the one praising and exhaulting your former student? Like the old creole proverb goes “e hosey ne ou” (excuse my creole) or is it a case of repaying ungratefulness with ingratitude. I’m sure there are other persons who applied for the job and a son of the soil was selected (your former student) you should have been proud sir and should be singing his praise; does it have to be all about you and you cabal. Get off your high horse before it kicks up and throw you to the ground.

    Hi Dr Thomson,
    I am disappointed in your entertainment of this fast-accelerating demise of a figure in Mr Sorhaindo. Since hate is the raw emotion and jealousy has various stages, I would be inclined to say that his hatred of you is BREEDING jealousy. It breeds a contempt in him born of envy towards you because of what you have achieved – what he secretly desire. Mr Sorhaindo’s mind is fuelled by emotions of insecurity, fear and over his lack of possessions, status or something of great personal value, which you possess that in which he doesn’t possess.

    The man’s emotions towards you manifests itself in anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness and disgust… sorry Dr Thomson it’s his problem not yours.

    Please Dr Thomson… don’t give this sad man the time of the day by responding to his many irritations.

  10. May 8, 2018

    I tried to understand what Soraindo was rambling about and failed. These ramblings were perhaps motivated by jealousy something only Soraindo will know. However Fontaine should not complain about the attacks on his character by Sorhaindo as he has already inflicted serious damage to his character when he as treasurer of DAAS, transferred funds from DAAS account to his own personal account without the knowledge of the executive. So Fontaine has already inflicted serious damage to his character that cannot be repaired in this lifetime. Let us not forget Fontaine’s constant attacks on the character of Skeritt and his ministers, Fontaine seems to like to do unto others that which he does not like for himself.

    What interests a man, so call man of intellect like Mr Sorhaindo to invest all of a fast approaching, if not already occurred, receding life into trying to establish the job title of another fellow Dominican. Shouldn’t what be more beneficial to Dominican nationals is a clinical job like this into the affairs of the Dominican government’s mismanagement of the states financies/resources as a result of bribery, corruption, subornation, payola, palm-greasing, graft, hush-money, dishonesty, deceit, deception, duplicity, double-dealing, etc, etc.

    I applaud your response for there are always two sides to a story. I however got lost while reading as you attempted to bring up the black and white issue, clearly for sympathy reasons. I expected you to debunk the retired doctor’s claim that you were in fact, not employed by the Govt. of South Sudan as their Senior Economic Advisor. Instead using rhetoric you portrayed him as a man that isn’t your friend but yet supported what he said. You admitted that you were a member of the Resource, Economic and Financial Management Working Committee operating under the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission established under Article VII in 2015. JMEC is not part of the Govt. In fact the South Sudan Govt is not responsible for members of JMEC, so the South Sudan Govt didn’t employ you as an economic advisor to the South Sudan Govt. You are a member of a committee that gives advise to the Govt in various areas as mentioned. You are also aware that the South Sudan Govt. hardly take or…

      Exactly, and why are all these people being so disrespectful to Mr. Sorhaindo’s observation. He is correct that and is really easy to understand.
      Now, i have thought about Mr. Fountain’s response and I don’t see why he would play the Race card for no reason at all. Except for that he is an insecure person. We all know that there is no racism there or jealousy coming from Sorhanindo. We all know that Mr. Sorhaindo is well qualified to be anything he wanted but chose to be a science teacher at SMA who taught many bad-*** black kids like myself for years. So Dr. Fountain as he likes to be called has revealed or manifested his insecurities by what he said. Why you think he got a doctorate in a non-science field while his siblings don’t even have a college degree. Think about it if you have the opportunity to get a Doctorate wouldn’t you help your own brother out? So, that shows what kind of selfish man Dr. Fountain truly is.

    Where was Rupert Sorhaondo, when CBS did an expose on the CBI programme and which showed that Dominica was being harmed regionally and internationally by the reckless behavior of the rogue Labour party government.Instead of of being honest and address the issue from the facts presented, he chose to come out swinging against the leader of the opposition insinuating that the malfeasance should be swept under the rug and kept there.I have lost respect for the children of the privileged class of decades gone by.They lacked the economic drive of their ancestors and did not follow in their footsteps, falsely believing that their bougeoisie status was enough to maintain them in the higher echelon of the society.Now that they see the children of folks who held them in high esteem go past them socially and economically, they are clinging unto the corrupt figure head, Skerritt, to try and get along as quickly as possibly, knowing that Skerritt won’t last forever.Stop it Rupert

    Dr. Fontaine, I do not think you should reply to non political figures in the country. He isn’t running for any seat in Dominica. You are a politician and you will be attacked by those who do not wish to see you or your party succeed. It is far past time for a change of the person holding the office of the prime minister in dominica. Dominica simply cannot continue with Skerrit leading the country. You have the difficult task to make that change happen. Your time is too valuable to reply to people who want to question your role in Sudan. You are in Sudan, you’re doing a fantasic job, however the goal is to improve life in Grandfond, and Dominica. So when elections are called you have to win your seat and the UWP needs to win 11 so we can have change.
    God bless Dominica.

    Dr Fountain this bguy come from a culture in Dominica that does not appreciate talent within the rank. Ever since i know our people those in high position always try to opress anyone they see who are wiser and more talented than themselves since it is a threat to thier position. What they have done is frustrate the young ones intil they leave instead of embracing the possibility of continuity. We are where we are today because people with your potential have gone elsewhere to use thier gifts and talents. What remains is those who cannot think for themselves and as a result our country and the black folks remain in perpetual poverty and ignorance. Sorhaindo would love that so be can feel powerful. Some us can see through his BS. I always believe in a man expressing himself because thats the only way he can reveal himself. Sorhaindo is revealing the idiot and envious person he is and what he really think of children of slaves.

    Continued from above..
    The functions of the working committees are clearly spelled out in the relevant public documents which can be accessed by anyone looking for the truth. One simply needs to search on the internet for Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan and Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission South Sudan to learn that the Committee which you say you head is mandated to MONITOR and OVERSEE the IMPLEMENTATION of the agreement referenced above, and the mandate and tasks of the Transitional Government, including specific economic and financial provisions described in detail with timelines and schedules. And I will make it my business to provide Dominicans at home and abroad with details in other media.
    I do not think that your personal comments should be dignified with a response, suffice it to ask why so many Dominicans refer to you as “long gundy, sticky fingers”. I assure you that you will hear more about the Transfergate and Landgate scandals of DAAS!

      Many Dominicans have never referred to our beloved, real Doctor, not Skeritt’s Dr., as sticky fingers. This was the work of Tony, Simeon, Mammie, and Christian. They pumped this God forsaken name, sticky fingers, into the minds of hundreds of DLP supporters, they really had then believing Dr. Fontaine was born with the name. According to the saying, “follow the leaders, leaders, leaders, follow the leaders.” ” What monkey see monkey do, monkey do.” When your boy looses the next general elections, I also wish to assure you, we will be bombarded with truck loads of Transfergate and Landgate, involving the lands at Trafalgar, the Villas and the 1.5 million dollar house.

      Why are you getting so worked up about whether Thomson is a senior advisor or not to the Government of South Sudan? Will that change the price of building materials in Dominica? The fact is Dr. Fontaine is working for the Government of Sudan as a consultant paid by the Government of the United Kingdom. His outputs are for the Government of Sudan. There are so many questions about the conduct of members of the current government you support. Their behaviour impacts the people of Dominica in a most direct manner. You have never sought to investigate any of the troubling actions by the government . Are you not concerned about international crooks and scoundrels holding our diplomatic passports given to them by the DLP government?

      Man, you are intellectually dishonest and a disgrace to many of your students who looked up to you. You are now an apologist, in the true sense of the word, for a corrupt government. If I was Thomson, I would have my lawyer consider taking legal…

Or the latest statement to the house and Dominicans by Skerrit that after TS Irma he made the treasury available to all elected MP’s? Are you saying that dishonesty by Mr. Fountain is the most important issue which merits you time to investigate and comment upon?

    I read Sorhaindo’s article and was bemused by the obsessive behavior of one man toward another man. It reminds me of the movie ‘Fatal Attraction’. This man (Sorhaindo) is pregnant with hatred and jealousy for a fellow human being. Instead of using whatever influence he has, for a worthy cause, like agitating for better wages and working conditions for public servants, he uses his time and energy to denigrate an individual who poses no threat to him. “Sorhaindo, hasn’t your race done enough wickedness to us?” Stop craving for Dr. Fontaine’s attention for you are certainly eerily fixated with the man. Stop this funny behavior.

    Dr Fontaine, jealousy is behind it, believe me. It brings out the worst in people. The more jealous they are, the more spiteful and vengeful they get. He probably cannot bear that you’ve done so well and he cannot compete on any level. Just hold your head up high and be blind to all haters. They’re own bad feeling will slowly consume them.

    Ps. don’t allow these people to force you to bring people’s skin colour into matters because you’re disgusted at their behaviour. Most of us on this island have a mixed blood in one way or another. You’re a better man than that. It’s time to break free of feeling downtrodden by something that happened 400 years ago just as Kanye says or we will always be negatively impacted by it and have victim mentality when we are far stronger than that. Bad things have happened to all peoples, but there has to be a time where a line is drawn and people move on.

      Is this an apology from Mr. Sorhaindo to this prominent Doctor, Dr. Fontaine.?

Sorhaindo, you focus must be on the failed and less educated PM, who howls at everyone who seeks to be critical of his failed performance and that of his corrupt Labour company. There is no way that this ductored Pm, whom Sorhaindo hails blindly has hurt Dominica into deeper poverty. Sorhaindo, Dr. Fontaine should be home in Domininca doing what he is doing in South Sudan. From whence you came you must be ashamed to pen this nonsense about Dr. Fontaine.
      Too hell with Skerrit and hi corrupt \Bobol Labour government, like most of us put Domininca first. You see, Skerrit cannot be compare with intellectuals like the likes of Dr. Fontaine, Hon Lennox Linton, who exposed the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol.

      Rupert stop with your trash and hypocritical behavior……….. Your BOFA clan are drowning and you all are just spiteful trying to keep poor people in poverty. It heart your hear doesn’t it when you all see that poor people children excels and you and your breed are not able to do the same. These spiteful old men who have nothing to show for all of their years are envious and jealous of poor people children that have been able to succeed despite the decks being stacked against them by their type. continue your dirty work all of all you time coming to an end and you will see poor people flourish in the land.

      Stop your hate mongering. What good can your negatively obsessive behavior for Dr. Fontaine do for the country? Use your sunset time to create opportunities to do positive things for your fellow citizens. Suggestions: Volunteer at a school, Do some conflict resolution classes, Teach the unlettered to read, Assist elderly persons , Engage in homework assistance for students who have no one at home to help them. Stop your petty jealousy.

      Please stop this, it is shameful and petty Mr Sorhaindo.

      Dr Fontaine, I would suggest that you stay away from the skin colour issue. A man of your stature should not descend into the gutter.

      As a former student of Mr Rupert Sorhaindo, I was disappointed with his attack on a fellow past SMA student who has done very well for himself, SMA and Dominica.

      It is unbelievable that with so much happening in Dominica, a former ardent politician ( A freedomite), Mr Sorhaindo ( who should be in his eighties), would remain quiet on other issues of National concern whilst he relentlessly attacks another Dominican. This attack seems to be a personal one and should not be played out in the public arena. I am disappointed Mr Sorhaindo.

        I agree that this colour/ counry/town issue has no place here. I am surprised that even in this day and age people in Dominica continue to feel so strongly about these matters. That quite frankly makes me scared of a return to the days of ‘ in charge and on stage’. Will it be a case of revenge of UWPites if they ever get a chance to form the government.

        What I got from the letters by both these men is that Mr. Sorhaindo is still upset about things that transpired between himself and Mr. Fontaine in the DAAS days. I did not get the feeling that Sorhaindo was jealous or harboured hatred towards any group of people in Dominica.

      Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
      ‘Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
      But he that filches from me my good name
      Robs me of that which not enriches him,
      And makes me poor indeed.

      Really! You are shameful. And obviously under a spell. Or just plain evil and wicked. I am a teacher, but I wouldn’t want to retire a disgraceful one like you. God help us!
