Referring to NICIL-SPU’s Executive Head, Colvin Heath-London’s letter in another section of the media of July 09, 2019 captioned, “Ms. Thomas should have availed herself of the facts – before going public on such sensitive matter”.
Mr. London’s letter contents, indeed points to a very troubling situation that exists at GuySuCo, so much so that his personal safety has been threatened, inclusive of the terrorist extreme of bomb threats that has warranted the intervention of police investigations. This is shocking, to say the least. One is forced to inquire whether this troubling situation, has anything to do with the clashes between London and what is clearly the old guard.
It would seem that London must have touched some ‘sacred elements’, to have attracted “threats to his life” and “bomb threats”.
London is a young dynamic man who brings a modern perspective to both management and administration, particularly as it relates to overseeing the gradual resuscitation of a once industrial giant that had been wrecked by the shameless management of the PPP/C. This dynamic undoubtedly clashes with a Corporation, which culture has been steeped in decades-old tradition of fiercely guarded and protected privilege, and a blinkered practice and understanding of one-way management. The fact that there were differences between London and the sugar corporation as to the manner in which a tranche of the $30B bond had been spent by GuySuCo, and which had been contrary to the terms of the bond agreement, speaks of an entity that still believes that it is in its glory days. Of course, it was London’s right to object to the Corporation’s manner of spending, since it was/is not in any position to spend on luxuries, as reported in the media. The fact of the matter is that he is vested with the ultimate responsibility for the management of the bond’s disbursement.
But emanating through the grapevine, are reports of a seminal issue which London’s principled position in challenging the status quo has upped the ante.
Ms. Audreyanna Thomas’s letter appears to be more about sensationalism, and pandering to a particular political/vested interest’s gallery, rather than taking into consideration the seriousness of the situation that surrounds London’s safety, apart from his efforts to turn around GuySuCo. One gets the unmistakable impression that Thomas’ contrived desperate ‘‘cries for help” in her letter is one that has been made with the purpose of demonizing this executive who seems to have upset the old boys club. It is part of a wider orchestrated strategy of a hidden political agenda, which is challenging London’s efforts at salvaging what can be had from the wreckage that was made of GuySuCo. The fact that there are comments in the media from these same enemies of progress, or their proxies, that serve to trivialise the threats to London’s personal safety, speaks as much of their wicked and evil design of resisting change, as it is about their unmistakable vested interests.
It is the height of the greatest contradiction that those who now seek to object to London, with the grand intention of hounding him out, because of his mental sapping challenge of making GuySuCo good again, which is inclusive of upturning the old culture of privilege and exclusivity, that their voices were all slammed shut during the period of the sugar industry descending to its destruction. They were all silent, with many of them benefitting from questionable arrangements under the guise of corporate legitimacy. What a shameless cabal!
Editor, one notes Ms. Thomas’ claim to what amounts to representing so-called concern persons within GuySuCo. It is laughable, very laughable, such a claim, as she is clearly being the mouth piece of this very collective, to mask their agenda against London, and the changes he seeks to bring about.
