KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, May 22, IWN – Nicaragua’s Vice-minister of Foreign Affairs, Valdrack Jaentschke, was in St. Vincent this week for talks with Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.
“I want to tell you that the gentleman you see here from Nicaragua, the Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs, his president, Daniel Ortega, sent him to see me on a matter,” Gonsalves said on Monday at the Fisherman’s Day Rally in Calliaqua.
He did not indicate the nature of the talks and how long the visiting dignitary would remain in the country.
“Watch him good. His foreparents come from St. Vincent, from Youroumei,” Gonsalves said.
“When Chatoyer was killed in 1795 and Garifuna were deported — nearly 5,000 – to Balliceaux, and 2000-something died there in six months, his foreparents is one of the 2,200 and something that managed to reach Roatan Island in Central America, in the Bay of Honduras. And his family, as you know, some go in Belize, some go in Honduras, some go in Guatemala and some go in Nicaragua, well his family is one who went Nicaragua,” Gonsalves said.
Welcome home Mr. Minister.
PVPALMER, welcome to St. Vincent and the Grenadines Valdrack Jaentschke, Nicaraguas Vice-minister of Foreign Affairs, in the Daniel Ortega Nicaraguan government.
PV that just may be more appopriate, except the name is a little questionable.
Why on earth Gonsalves is ‘up-talking’ the man for I do not know. He is the Vice-minister, not the minister, they sent a second layer diplomat, not the president, not the minister, not the top man, and Gonsalves thinks we are impressed by that.
The man has a European mixed East European Grandfather, an East Indian mixed mother, and an American father of English decent called Whitaker, how that makes him in any way a Garifuna we will never know. Gonsalves should know by now that with today’s technology there are no longer secrets, at some time the truth will prevail.
Gonsalves knows the man from ALBA meetings, they sit close to each other, sharing a 16 foot lounge-couch after dinner, they fill it.
In fact the mans name is not Valdrack Jaentschke, its Valdrack Ludwig Jaentschke Whitaker. [check out the internet for yourselves]
Gonsalves told us talking of Valdrack Jaentschke, “his fore-parents are one of the 2,200 and something that managed to reach Roatan Island in Central America, in the Bay of Honduras. And his family, as you know, some go in Belize, some go in Honduras, some go in Guatemala and some go in Nicaragua, well his family is one who went Nicaragua, Gonsalves said.
I am not sure I believe that, but perhaps as a matter of diplomacy we should accept that, unless its another………on the part of our prime minister.
Valdrack Ludwig Jaentschke Whitaker, Nicaraguas Vice-minister of Foreign Affairs, in the Daniel Ortega Nicaraguan government.
