UWP leader sympathizes with family of motor vehicle accident victim

Nakisha Williams died as a result of an accident at Dos D’ane on Saturday night

The victim of a motor vehicle accident which occurred at Dod D’ane on Saturday night has been identified as Nakisha Williams of Wesley.

According to reports, Williams died after the vehicle in which she was travelling ran off the road near the village of Dos D’ane and ended up in a river several feet below.

Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton, in condoling with Williams’ family, expressed sadness over the event.

“It is the kind of experience that brings tears to your eyes because the pictures we saw of the vehicle accident…the aftermath of the accident….She is no longer with us and tonight we extend sympathies to the family of Nakisha Williams of Wesley, the Wesley community and all of the patriots of this blessed land on her passing in a special way,” Linton told a UWP gathering at Castle Bruce on Sunday night.

He added, “May the flight of angels sing to the eternal paradise and may her soul rest in peace.”

    “ And may her soul rest in peace.”

    Lennox, it is not a coincident that you are speaking with such hypocrisy, just a few days before the general election–you are not fooling anyone.

    But you people need to stop with that rest-in-peace human philosophy; there is no meaning to it

    First of all the state of “resting in peace” would have to be on her behalf by her family, but who can be at peace, to think of the manner by which they have lost their loved one to physical death? No one!

    But the family can vow to live in the spirit on her behalf because she had gone to the Spirit World, where “spiritual perfection” will continue for her, as her loved ones go into “intercession” to God on her behalf

    Please stop with that “rest-in-peace” analogy it is meaningless in the Spirit World–I have concrete knowledge of this.

    My son passed away 2 years ago, he visits me in his body image every day–he is not in his grave in the dust of his bones and flesh.

    So an accident cannot happen? why is the government being blamed for accidents? St. Lucia roads are good and there are way more accidents there than small Dominica. Stupess be realistic people. Think about the E.O Leblanc Highway, aren’t accidents happening there? Nice the roads too nice. When we see nice roads we tend to speed causing accidents. So drivers be cautious!!!!

    May she rest in peace. Beautiful young lady. It is so sad when a life is snuffed out so young.

    Why the need to mention UWP manifestos etc and even post a pic?? I really don’t think it’s appropriate at this time.

    This is just heartbreaking, it’s time to do something about these road accidents, there is far too many for this island. What are the politicians saying about this?

      No money for roads and bridges but plenty of money for Skerrit himself, his election campaign and his pals Nassief, Raphael, Lawrence, etc.

      @Dee, stop your nonsense talking there is roads accidents every minute of the day all over the world in most cases it is nothing to with the governments in my opinion stupidity has a lot to do with it drinking, dope, and driving without due care and attention. In simple English careless driving on mobile sum bus drivers driving like aholes I could go on and on.

      You know I read Man Dog comments, and although I think he is Roosevelt Skerrit bull-dog operating off instincts because he is a triple head snake with a rat tail, like his handler that two head black wet rat Roosevelt.


      I have to agree with him; accidents do happen everyday, just about every place on earth.

      I narrowly (almost) killed someone who pulled out in front of me less than an hour ago.

      I was traveling fast, it is a good thing the rocket’s I drive are all fitted with anti-lock brake, so once you step on the brake and do not release it, you might stop avoiding getting killed, or killing someone.

      The accident which took the girl’s life is not a political thing!

      The problem might be as usual; people driving as if driving is something special, and it might be attraction to people who (say) “mister fast eh; he can drive fast.”

      That is a Dominica curse, we drink and drive showing off killing innocent passengers.
