By Aaron Humes: Wrapping up the House of Representatives’ debate on the 2019-20 General Revenue and Appropriation Bill, Prime Minister Dean Barrow called out the apparent turnaround by the Opposition People’s United Party to constructing the Caracol and Coastal Roads for which more than $200 million Belize dollars has been collected.
The P.M. said that the Leader of the Opposition John Briceño should know that it was the P.U.P. who initiated plans for the Caracol Road, paying nearly 4 million in 1998 after their election for a design of the 30 plus mile road. He quoted predecessor Said Musa as telling a visiting delegation from the Inter-American Development Bank that it was one of the then-administration’s highest infrastructural priorities.
The P.M. scorned the “transparent nonsense” of the P.U.P.’s denunciations, describing it as “absurdity, the height of hypocrisy and of course, the epitome of that, perhaps, most pernicious of all sin- envy, envy…. We the hypocrites walking see the hypocrites talking.”
It was noted that almost $20 million was spent by the-then P.U.P. governments on designs and preliminary improvements of the Coastal and Caracol roads.
BBN will have our review of the road to the Caracol and Coastal Roads in future articles.
