  1. Lol it is to be used up by August 2021 ? With this bunch thats giving red meat to the Lion .

      • @MR.PEEPS:
        Stop the POLITICS you say.The day that happens in Antigua the world would end.Once you stepped out of your house daily.You are stepping on and into POLITICS IN ANTIGUA NOT BARBUDA.

  2. Here we go again, we will not know where the money go, we will be singing “where did the money go i dont know, where did the money go I don’t know,” pockets go full up. Government pockets never fracture ,but they want fracture poor people pockets.

  3. @ FRED FLINTSTONE

    Forget about the MODERNA and take the ASTRAZENECA. Stop the DAMN politics. This is your health. Smarten Up ANTIGUANS.

  4. Didn’t cabinet notes say they buying 90 tanks of oxygen with the money !!!
    Agree with other posters, kindly provide a full listing of line items, supplier name & cost to account for this USD5.2m by end of September 2021.
    Let’s hope a favored few are not awarded the Lions share of this grant.
    Note Cabinet says spend will be on equipment & medicines, (not consultants or staffing fees), so full accountability will be straightforward as it’s physical product that can be bought at market price, not inflated, each item counted on arrival in country, each item recorded as delivered to XYZ and that should correlate with # vaccines administered as shown in e-database and clinics, hospitals medical institutions receiving equipment.

  5. It makes me physically sick knowing a lot of that money will end up in private bank account. Terribly corrupt. Just like parts of Africa.

  6. I am trying to find out.Is this a grant and or a loan.Because the story just brushed over it all.No information,no digging deeper to find out.

    Correct. $$$ are NEVER given without stipulation. What is owed in return? Land? Natural resourrces?

    You are living in a land of fantasy if you think good will exist when it comes to Countries, Corporations and Banks

  8. Antigua – Beggy, beggy Beatrice! Doing what we do best – beg. Imagine Dominica giving us vaccine.
    SKERRITT: He say he want some, if we could give him some?
    HIS HEALTH MINISTER: Yes, PM
    SKERRITT: OK, garcon. Give him some. Too damn low. Won’t spend his own money.
    (Health Minister writes to Beggy Beatrice)
    Dear PM Browne, PM Skerritt says to give you 5,000, and don’t come back because you too damn disgusting.

  9. And as usual if Antigua gets the funds, most will end up in the current minister’s pockets. They will continue their creative enrichment scheme as dictator and traitor Gaston said to do.

    Where are Nigel Christian’s murderers? Why haven’t they been caught? No one seems to be doing anything about finding his murderers now. This stinks of high ranking officials involved.
