  1. It’s high time and well over due cause clearly Molwyn Joseph has no idea what he saying at times .

    • That won’t stop him from saying what he has no clue about. He will still say what he feels like saying. Ijs 🤷🏾

  2. Who wrote this mess? A clean and cohesive rundown of her qualifications would be enough. Knowing this is straight from The Ministry of Health’s Facebook page just shows how much help they need. We the average people do NOT need to know that this woman enjoys the gym. If that’s something she disclosed in an interview, fine but no need to disclose that among other things. However, at one point the release mentions her hobbies, goes on to mention more qualifications and then reverts to saying she enjoys outdoor activities. What???!!! Also, when you have a degree, people need to know you have 10 CXCs????!! This release is a hell of a mess. I hope she can make some positive changes at the Health Ministry because when it comes to communication and public relations, they clearly don’t know what they’re doing.

  3. Thank god or whoever came up with this idea. A breath of Fresh air at last

    I always thought that they were running a public relations campaign and not a Covid19 prevention initiative.

    Now we know for sure.

  4. What a load of tosh!! Communication Director but not clear what role she will play?

    Umm, breakdown in communication before she start.

  5. What nasty comments from the onset! Very little by way of welcome or encouragement – except for one ‘just saying’ he/she would like meet her! A fine bunch we are. Certainly our lives could not be that miserable!!!

    • @ANON:So what did you bring to the table.Absolutely,damn nothing.I wish her well in her new endeavor.Good Luck to her.For she is going to need all of it.

    • They are the haters. That’s all they do all day all night. until the next election than they get a beating once again

  6. I can never understand why would someone speak on a matter that they can’t give answers to especially when there is someone who is qualified to speak on that matter. I hope there’s really a change.

    • Exactly! This young lady has NO MEDICAL EXPERIENCE, NO COMMUNICATION DEGREE! However it’s not what you know in Antigua it’s who you know!

      • Just to let you know.One does not need a Communications Degree to be a good Communicator.Remember,I told you so.

  7. Why are the people who comment on this blog so negative. Everything seems to bother them. Just congratulate the lady and move on. Just shows how miseriable some of you are.

  8. This young lady graduated from high school over 20 years ago, so why mention Cxc … usually You mention accreditation’s over the last 10 years at the most. Especially when kids today are getting 20 subjects..

    They are saying she has ‘experience’ and a degree but is it associates, bachelors ?? Masters ?? What ?? She has credit from this school and that … you can start at a college and never finish but have ‘ credit’

    Also, I am not sure exactly what her role is … will she be replacing mr Melford Nicholas who is giving the announcements on corona? Will she be speaking on behalf of the ministry and Molwyn Joseph?

    Antigua is Definitely the land of opportunity. The last thing I know about this young lady is that she owned a hair dressing shop and sell hair care products …. there is no advanced degree in her background but ok!

    Those who are saying others are being negative it’s because for those who know the young lady personally. This comes as a shock as she has NO DEGREES OR EXPERIENCE.

    I know many young Antiguans who actually has degrees in communication but instead they hire a Guyanese.
    This young lady is from Guyana and is NOT A BORN ANTIGUAN… THERE ARE TOOO MANY YOUNG BRIGHT ANTIGUANS NOT TO BE AWARDED THE OPPORTUNITY IF THEY EXIST!

    Congrats and good luck Ananthsa Macdonald! – From Guyana!

    If you know her! Then You know!

    • @ Definitely a Joke” thanks for that extra bit of info .. i to wondered about why did they mention CXCs, and the entire thing was all over the place , like they were looking for extra things to put down to make the hire look good, just weird.. also as long as you have a degree no one puts CXC on their CV not unless u just done school or something(correct me if i’m wrong) especially if u finish school over 10yrs … and why is that if someone has a comment they are suddenly a negative person and bad mind .. what? .. sometime i’m amaze at the cool aid drinkers , if you see something wrong shut ya mouth and watch on .. because u so blinded by the party when u see wrong u cant talk …chuuppppsss … by the way didn’t the government indicated that they will be no further hires, as a matter of fact i hear the Misinformation minister said so out of his mouth .. that government cant afford to hire so they will only be inter government transfers … so i’m a little bit taken back by this hire … but again we talking about ALP here .. hmmmmmmm …

  9. I agree with one thing of this girl is not Antiguan. ANTIGUANS SHOULD BE PUT FIRST IN ANTIGUA

    IF ANTIGUA DOESNT PUT ANTIGUANS FIRST THEN WHO WILL?

    YOU HARDLY SEE ANTIGUANS GOING TO OTHER CARIBBEAN COUNTRIES AND GETTING GOVERNMENT OR PRIVATE COMPANY POSITIONS.

    REGARDLESS OF CARICOM.

    BUT ONLY IN ANTIGUA WE WILL PUT EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN CHARGE OF OUR AIRPORT OR PORTS, IN GOVERNMENT AND IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR .

    SO MANY ANTIGUAN YOUNG PEOPLE GRADUATE TOP OF THEIR CLASS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND WHEN THEY COME BACK TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY IN ANTIGUA, UNLESS THEY HAVE A PULLSTRING THEY CANT GET THROUGH.

    • What is your definition of “Antiguan”? Do you know that DANE KNIGHT is a camouflage “Antiguan” even though he pretends to be so patriotic and “concerned” for the country? The truth is, this same “Antiguan” is on public record as saying that an Antigua and Barbuda passport is of NO VALUE TO HIM because (according to him) he has his AMERICAN PASSPORT and (according to him) the U.S. does not recognize dual citizenship. So yes he “appears” to be “Antiguan” but his loyalty is to TRUMP. Loyalty to a country is clearly not solely based on being born there.
