Today, the voices from below send a special thanks to I-Witness News, Ms. Juno De Roche (representing Digicel) and PM Gonsalves.
The article entitled “PM Gonsalves aiding and abetting Digicel?” has served its purpose. At 12:05 p.m., about 6 hours after iwnsvg.com published the article, a team of Digicel representatives showed up and retracted several statements made the previous day.
I was told by a representative that my article prompted a quick response from Digicel and that they have decided to offer teachers the option of choosing between a post-paid and a pre-paid plan. Teachers were also given additional information, which elucidated many areas. As a result, I decided to write a follow up article to express my gratitude.
First on my list is iwnsvg.com. Your quick publication resulted in immediate action. I admonish all Vincentians to log on daily. Second, I wish to thank my colleagues for the support they offered. Third, Ms Juno De Roche was very professional and offered her assistance and advice where necessary.
Finally, Mr. Prime Minister, I must thank you for the education revolution and the challenge you have issued to Vincentians to be more articulate and critical. Mr. Ralph Gonsalves has influenced me to talk out against injustices and I hope to be awarded the privilege and honour to represent my fellow countrymen in the future. As for my critics, being afraid to stand up for what you believe in and your fellow citizens is the very same reason why Vincentians will always be treated with disrespect, contempt and be seen as uneducated.
