Gayelle TV got the first exlcusive interview with outgoing President Patrick Arnold. He talks about the election, the state of pan as well as the controversial statements made by National Award winner Len 'Boogsie' Sharp. Look out for it on the Gayelle TV profile!
The complaint against Arnold was his lack of pro-activeness and progressiveness. Will Diaz be any better or different? It isn't where he is from as much as what he stands for. I am looking for an escape from neo-colonialistic thinking and behaviour. Both Pan and Trinbago are the operant words and ideas.
Love and Dedication....Ras Rico I
