    Why would the DFC compete with a Community organised May Fest, that Marigot’s organisers have staged for so long on that same day, May 1st.

    Certainly, the Kweyol Jazz event could be held any other time. Instead of collaborating to strengthen community events, attempts seem to be in another direction. Did DFC help fund May Fest? Whose fools are citizens? The trend isregressive.

    I would not be surprised if the DLP paid for most of the tickets of the people attending.

    Dear Minister of Tourism – how many tourists attended ? As this event is paid for out of the tourism budget, I guess that’s the aim, right ? For the event to attract tourism ? From the photos it looks like an event for the Dominica middle classes. I have no Problem with that, but it should not come from the tourism coffers when so many small to mid size hotels have faced near bankruptcy during the covid pandemic, when these people have been offered no financial support, and when the government has been paying staff wages at Kempinski, their pet CBI project.

      Walter, their aim is not to bring-in tourists , but to show political patronage to the rulers even if in the long run this will destroy our culture, They don’t care!
