Has prophecy been fulfilled as foretold?
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound”.
In thanking members of the house for welcoming her, Senator Kay Bacchus Baptiste said SVG is still a civilized society and a people united cannot be defeated.
Baptiste went on to speak about the protest action by Vincentians in Canada on Sunday, brought about by the ongoing saga surrounding former model Yugge Farrell.
Miss Farrell was today given bail in the sum of $1000.00 to return to court on December 17th, 2018.
” Protest like these inspire me, “so when people say, kay why are you getting into politics, you are fairly comfortable, but I don’t believe because a person is comfortable they should sit back and do nothing”.
Bacchus – Baptiste said she believes silence is an abuse, and silence can be selfish.
“ For that purpose, I come to set the captive free, to bring a voice to the voiceless, to bring hope to the hopeless”.
Yugge Farrell appeared before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court Friday, charged that on Thursday, January 4 at Granby Street, Kingstown, she did cause a breach of the peace by using abusive language to Karen Duncan- Gonsalves of Prospect, which was “You dirty b**ch.”
Duncan-Gonsalves, a lawyer attached to the Attorney General’s chambers, is the wife of Minister of Finance Camillo Gonsalves.
Bacchus – Baptiste joins Senator Zita Barnwell as the second female on the Opposition bench.
