Cedric Moss: More Carnival Duplicity
- Jan 8, 2018 - 4:02:13 PM
Recently, Minister of Youth, Sports, and Culture
Michael Pintard made a further statement on the government’s involvement
with carnival. I found it contradictory, duplicitous, and confusing.
Still, in the January 2, 2018 issue of the Tribune, Minister Pintard
said, “There is no contradiction in our position and certainly no
duplicity. We, as a government, are out. This is now a private venture
that will be guided by the government through an amended commission. But
for all intents and purposes, all avenues are open.” Huh? If carnival
is truly now a private event...

publications across Africa, requesting I contribute my thoughts to their
