Reroofing of DSC to be completed soon

Repair works on the facility

Ambassador of Cuba to Dominica, Juan Carlos Frometa de la Rosa has revealed that reroofing of the Dominica State College (DSC) is expected to complete in two or three weeks.

He made that announcement while addressing a handing over ceremony of Cuban Scholarships to Dominican students held at the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba in Morne Daniel on Friday.

The school was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria on September 18, 2017 and extensive repair works begun on the roof in June 2018 by Cuban enginneers.

“We will continue helping not only in training, and now especially after Hurricane Maria Cuban have been working, helping, providing supplies, donations to Dominica and now I feel very happy because we have 80 Cuban engineers and contractors reroofing the state college, so in two or three weeks they will finish reroofing the school and after this they will go around the country to continue repairing houses,” he said.

The Ambassador said he is very happy to see many Cubans working close to Dominica.

The work in progress was made possible by the Chinese, Cuban & Venezuelan Governments, Engineers without borders and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The New DSC which opened its doors to hundreds of students in September 2013 was funded through a $30-million concessionary loan from the China Export Import Bank (EXIM Bank).

The State College is one of several projects constructed by the Shanghai Construction Group in Dominica.

    “Ambassador of Cuba to Dominica, Juan Carlos Frometa de la Rosa has revealed that reroofing of the Dominica State College (DSC) is expected to complete in two or three weeks.”

    The comment in the quote by a foreigner; a so called ambassador to Dominica in my opinion is nothing more than interfering into our domestic, and internal fairs of our country!

    Even if the Cuban government provided the labor and material used to do any form of construction on that building, or any other in the country; any comment regarding completion of work should be made by an official of the college.

    Since it is noted a State College, I assume it is owned by the people of the country, therefor any comment should come from some government minister, and not the Cuban; and that is unless Dominica is now  a satellite puppet state of Cuba!

    Who is head of government in Dominica, Roosevelt or the Cuban?
