  1. Dear Afra have you ever seen any cost over runs with any Chinese Contractors please advise

  2. The Ballah and Uff Reports have become totem poles of our crass ignorance as an educated nation. Excessive talks, protests and court decisions all fail to impress the transgressors of civility, who brazenly lie about the myriad thefts, inhumane misuses and persistent abuses of their power in public offices.

    Afra is again championing the cause of housing affordability for 70% of Trinbagonians as we have the money and it is still being grossly mismanaged. Absent transparency and accountability of Private-Public Partnership contracts as identified by the IDB report cited remain virginal and Afra’s call for the inclusion of stakeholders whenever city development is being planned remains as dormant as our collective call for real democratic representation.

    Perhaps the COLA index should be a percentage of the calculated fiscal waste that can apply as a deduction to the department heads at each institution found wanting.
