By Aaron Humes, Belize City: The United Democratic Party is calling on Minister of Human Development, Families and Indigenous Peoples Affairs to apologize to one of their own.
Minister Dolores Balderamos Garcia was caught off-guard during a meeting celebrating the 10th anniversary of the LGBT organization PETAL on Friday denigrating the chairwoman of the Hattieville Village Council, Sylvana Barrow, as a “wretch” among other allegations.
The UDP and its women’s organization, the National Organization for Women (NOW), say Garcia’s attack comes at an extremely poor time – the celebration of Women’s Month.
They also claim that partisan motivations are behind the recent reorganization of food assistance and financial assistance, on the basis that Barrow’s senior citizen mother was being questioned as to her bonafides for the program.
With the election season over, the UDP says, it is time for the Belize Rural Central area representative to honor her oath, let go of her partisanship and serve all Belizeans, including Sylvana Barrow, to whom she must apologize.
Neither the Minister, her party or its United Women’s Group (UWG), the counterpart to the NOW, has commented.
