Sehon Marshall, the political activist who in August spoke disparaging about the occupations of some Vincentians in the United States has been appointed St. Vincent and the Grenadines Deputy Council General in New York.
Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said on Monday that Marshall was appointed effective Oct. 15, and will leave for New York this month.
He said that Marshall, a former teacher who holds a master’s degree in international affairs, has been working along with the Ministry of foreign Affairs, preparing himself for his new post.
“I was told that he was to go by the end of the first week in this week, but I spoke to him yesterday and he was still waiting,” Gonsalves told reporters on Monday.
“I spoke to the Consul General about another matter and I told him Sehon should be coming up anytime soon,” Gonsalves said.
Marshall will replace Edson Augustus, who was fired earlier this year after confessing that he had taken money from persons in the United States and promised to help them to secure US Permanent Residents Cards there.
