Samantha Marshall has been sworn in as Minister for Agriculture Fisheries and Barbuda Affairs replacing Dean Jonas who was fired today by Prime Minister Gaston Browne.

She will retain her other portfolios which include Social Transformation, Youth, Gender Affairs, Human Resource Development.

Marshall took the oath of office, allegiance and secrecy at Government House moments ago.

Governor General Sir Rodney Williams told Marshall that the new appointment shows the confidence that the prime minister has in her.

“We do expect you to continue to work as hard as you have been,” he said.

  1. A begging the PM not to stress out Hugh Marshall pickney. That said, I hopes she does an excellent job balancing her duties with both portfolios.

    • Heaven alone help her! She educated, she should know that she is only one person, well two (from looking at that photo), well maybe two& a half, okay…three

  2. SHE MS MARSHALL IS THE BEST PERSON TO GIVE THIS MINISTRY TO, SHE HAD NOTHING DOING ANYWAY. SHE WAS DOING A LOUSY JOB ANY WAY. SHE WAS WITH ARTHUR NIBBS & BOTH WERE SO LOUSY TOGETHER. POOR A&B, MORE FAILURES EXPECTED. BIG SLOB IN LITTLE HOLES……

  3. My Prayers to Honorable Minister Samantha Marshall on this great task before her.
    May our God grant you the strength and courage to lead and to direct in fairness and uprightness in all areas
    according to his grace.
    May God bless and keep you.

  4. One of the hardest working women in politics. Show dem minister….show dem! You have my support all the way to the Prime ministership (if there is such a word) in the future. On the other hand what criteria/benchmark is used by the PM to evaluate the performance. Are there enough monies allocated to the ministry to reach the benchmarks? Why the PM did not see it fit to switch ministries or is he so arrogant and just wanted to flex his muscles? There was an issue when he was at TB and made a decision that he thought was in the best interest of the board however he was overruled by some say the PM and minister. Brings to thinking is it because he may be considered NOT a full RED?

  5. Leading by example is a great motto, to follow. Both portfolios which she is in charge of, will determine the direction which Our Our Nation – Antigua, Barbuda & Redonda takes in the long, long, long run for generations to come, since, they include guidance of the youths, caring for the elderly, and FOOD.

    Looks are deceiving, but I am starting to understand why the PM has allocated funds to install exercise equipments to be used for free, around the Nation.

    Again, looks are deceiving but from Weston to Marshall to Benjamin they should, all lead by example, and hit those free gyms! Just incorporate it into your meet n greet sessions with your constituents.

    Hey, I’m just observing and saying, because it could be nothing but solid muscles under those clothes, that they’re wearing!

  6. She the best person for the job at this time, and the PM knows it. She is a hard worker, a woman of integrity and dignity. Our prayers are with her.
