  1. I see NYAMCO is involved in the weed business now. Use some of NYAMCO’S money to help the poor people of Antigua and Barbuda. That money belongs to the People. NYAMCO is a wholly owned Government entity.With a Board of Directors to include,Cabinet Ministers in this Administration.

  2. Oh Cutie allowed to talk now .
    He should’ve been the one and not the MOUSTACHE to be the most vocal and in the public domain speaking about the abduction and kidnapping on Àntigua soil .
    Bull shit now the little incompetent wimp talking about what ?

  3. Do these pseudo Rastafari no longer consider the government of Antigua to be “BABYLON”? Strange bedfellows, or is this just a political ting????

  4. Election coming and slavery is back. Great photo Ops “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” Is this the same Labour Party that vilify and demonized Moody Stuart? I need to follow the money on this one. I have the name for this book ” Moody From Sugar Cane to Marijuana.” with the black Rastafarians the new slaves. Is that the same King Fraud that talk about Reparation every day? No Rastafarian can come tell me about Africa and Reparation ever again, they are a bunch of sellouts. Look how the top dawg get them to sell their souls. The Stuart family is back to take it’s rightfull place in the history of Antigua & Barbuda.
