Another Dominican killed in Guadeloupe

Kurt Ambo, the victim of a fatal shooting in Guadeloupe on Feb 18, 2022

The authorities in Guadeloupe have launched an investigation into the fatal shooting of a Dominican national who resided in that neighbouring French Island.

Dominica News Online (DNO) has been reliably informed that the victim is Kurt Ambo, also known as ‘Fifty’, of Woodfordhill.

According to media reports, the victim, who is said to be in his mid-thirties was found riddled with bullets, shortly before 8 pm on February 18, 2022 near the roadway in Pointe-a Pitre.

Family members and close friends of the deceased all expressed their shock over Ambo’s death as, according to them, he was not known to have been involved in any conflict.

Another Dominican, David Green of Yampiece, was killed in Guadeloupe in November last year.

DNO will continue to follow this latest shooting death of a Dominican in that neighbouring French Department.

    Well all I can say about the topic at hand is now a days people are killing each other everywhere it is not only in Guadeloupe and Dominica it’s a world wide thing because illegal guns is easy to get on the market easyer than a cocoa stick. Maybe the devil has taken over the world now children don’t know who to trust.

      Lie Clown, you should take your circus show to Annou Pale at Sunday evenings. If you had to rely on your clown show as your only source of income, you would starve to death. Ratings below zero.

    I just hate hypocrisy. Only people who are very young won’t remember Kurt Ambo’ s record. I am not saying that’s justification for his killing but let’s not pretend he was a saint. May his soul Rest In Peace and his killers face justice.

    The French laws are too lenient. The French prison system is a joke. In Guadeloupe a criminal will spend 2 years for killing a man and within the prison, the inmates have cellphones with internet, making videos and posting it on YouTube. The inmates have their kitchen and appliances inside of their cells. Going to prison is like a vacation for a criminal. I never felt safe in Guadeloupe. This place is like hell. The French people jealous of Dominicans and our ambition. Calling us kehkeh; a racial slur. And is like we Dominicans are not real people. Is like we are dogs in Guadeloupe. Un kehkeh yo twé la.

      I support what you say 100% . I see a certain group of individuals insult people and call them names but their comments are posted. However, others with strong factual points are censored simply because the individual or individuals who must approve the comments do not concur.
      That is so sad and this is why our country suffer. media house on both sides of the political divide do not allow for free speech. Such a shame.

      ADMIN: That is your opinion ,which we do not share, but the fact that you (and many others) can regularly express such criticism is a point against your claim.

    More blood 🩸 on de Labor government for not performing their constitutional duties to help and support and protect its citizens. Talking about eating in garbage Bin? Well, when you are forced to leave home (Dominica), or you are driven out because of all the illegalities in government which is too much to stomach; Then when you go to those desert places like Antigua where there’s no water, and Guadeloupe with many 🐀 rathole shanty towns – Then, you will either eat garbage or bullets will kill you. So then, my advice to all you young Dominicans is simple. Stay put in Dominica and help us make the country the envy of the entire Caribbean by getting rid of the King …… Ske-Rat and all his Parasites. Dominica has all you need and more. The only thing standing in your way young people, is this BLASTED LABOR PATRACK.

      Let me first clear the air. I not speaking in favor of the ruling party but what you are saying makes no sense. Our people have been migrating to Guadeloupe so long it has nothing to do with Labor. Move from the politics and focus on reality. Do you know the amount people in the big countries who wants to come in the caribbean to settle? Stop crying down the country and let’s all be productive.

    Just this morning a young laborite told me if it was not for the covid long he would be in Guada but according to him life is so stressful in Dominica that he is going to hop a boat and run to Guadeloupe. I showed him the risks if caught and he told me he is so stressed out now that he gonna take a chance because he is fed up with the situation in DA. I told him about this young man from Woodfordhill and he told me there is no risk that he can take at this time that is worse than burning his future in Dominica. Man so many of our young people have all but given up on life here and what hurts me is either they or their parents keep voting for Skerrit even if they know he has destroyed their hope.

      I would not encourage any young person to violate the law. However, I truly empathize with this young brother.

      Mr. Skerrit lives in Morne Daniel Castle and has never had life so good.. Conversely, poverty, misery, desperation and hopelessness are the constant companions of most resident Dominicans.

      This infidel (Skerrit) is single-handedly responsible for the harrowing state of affairs in the country. He has made all members of his cabinet IMPOTENT. They can’t STAND UP and RAISE the impassioned concerns of desperately poor.

      Where there is no wisdom the people perish.. Too many Dominicans are going through a hellish life brought on by the despotic tyrant in charge.

        So the PM is blame for everything
        There are killing all the world
        But as soon as someone from Dominica is killed
        The Prime minister is responsible
        Jaminica has over a hundred and fifty murders for the year so far
        They might soon blame the PM for that
        All these individuals that blaming the PM
        Are just jealous of the good work he is doing
        Where in the world can you get a house for free
        Keep going PM
        God has sent here for such a time as this
        Blessings to you

          I’m certain the ‘PM’ will make a generous donation to you for this complete and utter nonsense you write. I pity you!

    Alah boy. My heart really goes out for the young men of Dominica in particular because it really hurts to see how Skerrit has deceived and destroyed them and their future. So because of the attack against our young men many run to neighboring islands to look for a livelihood and sadly, most don’t return alive. They stay in Dominica and blood shed. Go Guada or Antigua and a week can’t go by to not hear of one being killed. While I don’t know the cause and I won’t speculate, the truth is it’s hard to imagine how a young man in Dominica can dream of a bright future when Skerrit does nothing to empower them or employ them so they could dream their damn dream. The man not giving them work, took Ross from them, destroyed the banana industry and now government building houses for those women knowing full well is who that build house can enter and sleep on bed. So in short our young men can’t compete with our government for cocoa stick

      EVERYTHING is politics for yall as if people don’t choose to live their life as they please weather good or bad. you not speculating, but thats exactly what u did. smfh. all our lives men going in other countries and finding themselves in issues but is skerritt fault now. I may not be a labourite but yall sickening with that constant blaming. how did SKERRITT take ross away? is he that bring hurricane? The young man was found riddled with bullets. Could have been due to the life he was living his enemies took him out. could have been mistaken identity. NOTHING to do with goverment.

      @Cocoa Sticks, why blame the PM for this man’s death? I recalled being in Guadeloupe in the eighties lots of dominican guys were killed and the PM was still in PSS. My sympathy to the family may he RIP

    I just want to commiserate with the family, relatives, friends and acquaintances of the dearly darted, Kurt Ambo. Hope he has left many pleasant moments they can ruminate on.

    Too many Dominicans are exiting the country permanently to seek greener pastures outside. To these migrants, financial security for them living in Dominica is an illusive dream.

    The present DLP administration should create the conducive economic conditions to incentivize the vast majority of young people to stay put in their land of birth. Dominicans need to throw the captain and his crew overboard the fast sinking ship.

        No, tell me since you have the facts. Every life is sacred no matter your past, social status or level of education. There are some people who get superlative pleasure from berating the dead. Are you one of them?

    • February 22, 2022

      IBO, why don’t you get some sleep? Your comments are very irritating. What has Skerrit done you, boy? Again, you write like someone who suffers from bi-polar.

        Ibo France and a few others that use DNO to constantly spew their bile are all suffering from a severe case of SKERRITITIS. Even after Skerrit decide to pass the Baton to someone else they will still be screaming his name, even in their sleep. I’m surprised they hav’nt blame him yet for the fluctuating water levels at the boiling lake. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
