PURCELL ESTATE, Tortola, VI- Word just reaching our news centre is that controversial former Government Minister Myron V. Walwyn will enter the political race and will contest the Sixth District seat with the National Democratic Party (NDP).

He will come up against the incumbent Representative and Virgin Islands Party (VIP) Member Hon Alvera Maduro-Caines, who is also the Junior Minister for Tourism. Ms Maduro-Caines was first elected in 2011, defeating former VIP strongman Omar W. Hodge.

Mr Walwyn was defeated in 2019 as head of the NDP but spent two terms (2011-2019) as At Large elected Member and the Minister for Education and Culture. He has had a controversial past, most often clashing with other Members of his team, the Opposition and the media.

Pros & Con for Walwyn

Many have accused him of victimisation, allegedly forcing many public officers out of their jobs, especially under his Ministry. Others have credited Mr Walwyn with helping many residents via his assistant grants programme and moving the Territory forward in areas of culture. This included getting a national dress and song, which are still used today.

The former Minister hit a low point when he said a few years ago that there was nothing that could be done to help locals in a competitive economy. Recently, he has denied saying this, but it was carried wide in both regular and social media.

Many believe Mr Walwyn is now caught up in the UK witch-hunt where he is before the courts after being arrested and charged for Breach of Trust over a $1.2 Million wall around the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).

UK witch-hunt

The UK has allegedly tagged many residents they do not like and who are outspoken and have deployed over 30 Caucasian UK police Offices to harass residents and allegedly destabilise the country.

Mr Walwyn said he did nothing wrong and has moved to have the trial sped up before the election.

Efforts to reach Mr Walwyn were futile, up to the time of publication.

Our news centre will bring more details as this story develops.

      Once you are with the NDP you have the philosophy that you are always correct and good, and everyone else is wrong and bad. This has been their trend from the inception.

    Why is Myron still with the NDP? Can't he see that the only thing the Governor went after with the NDP is he and the wall? Can't he see that the rest of them are working with the colonial power to protect them but not him and others who they hate and want out of the way? Can't he see they are working with the Governor to try to influence the outcome of the elections? I hope he opens his eyes.

    I will never vote for Myron again after what he put our children and teachers through after Irma. I did not mind the temporary actions in the pasea building but come on man. The L-shaped building was left damaged and the construction of new buildings to get everyone out of that moldy building was not started neither. I have a sick child today as a result of his inactions just to make a rich friend richer at the expense of others especially health wise.

    Alot of people running want us to forget that this government had a rough first three years with dealing with the worse pandemic in the last 100years coupled with dealing with all the damage the same Myron and the NDP did not fix after the worse category 5 hurricanes in 2017 coupled with these same people running to the Governor to try to destroy the government for power. It was and continue to be a challenge and I am applauding Alvera and giving her and her team another chance.

    If the topic report is true, politicians, Myron V Walwyn for one, really are seeing the majority of us, the eligible voters of the British Virgin Islands, as foolish, naive, blind, numb brains, confused, helpless slaves, under their witchery spell.

    Note. 1. God our Creator is Love, Truth, and real, not a figment of those whose mind are delusional.

    Note. 2. Choose wisely, good rather than evil.

    I had the opportunity to work with a few ladies in politics or seeking to be in politics such as Lorna, Luce, Alvera, Shaina, Slyvia Moses, and Shereen. I will advise all to take my advice. You can take a chance with Alvera and maybe Shaina and Luce but stay far from voting for the rest. All they want is the power to terrorize who they hate and even some who they love and sell us out to the slave masters.

    Some of you have been so blinded and clouded by what Andrew etched in your heads. All politicians have done some things we may not agree with. However, Walwyn provided avenues for many young people. Yes with the HIghschool the temporary fix was good but it got overbearing. However, where were getting all the funds from. so many persons were in need after hurricane. it could not all be done in the 2 years...election was 2019 and most of the things VIP accomlished or continued was started by NDP. The school was already at a contractual and design stage, so you cannot say that Walwyn was not fighting and pushing for the children. NDP was faced with the effects of hurricane and now VIP came and was faced with now effects of hurricane and pandemic. I would not knock him down for what he tried to do with such little at the time.

    He may be under investigation but has the DPP provided the evidence to really charge him? As someone said, President Trump ran while under investigation. BVI do not have a written law against such. We have criminals who were also in the govt pot this past term and we some who are running on VIP. So what are we really saying.

    Life goes on.

Also, the Election Office with Government needs to address the rezoning of Districts due to Development and Population.
