BREAKING NEWS: Nanthan, Charles to face challenge for Windwards cricket leadership

The Windward Islands Cricket Board of Control (WICBC) is scheduled to meet in Saint Lucia this coming weekend (May 25-26). Top of the agenda will be an election of officers. The two most keenly contested positions, from all reports, will be the presidency and vice-presidency.

Emmanuel Nanthan, who was earlier this year deposed as vice-president of Cricket West Indies (CWI), has led WICB since 2008. A native of the Commonwealth of Dominica, he served as vice-president of WICBC, and took over from veteran administrator Lennox John.

Nanthan serves alongside Julian Charles of Saint Lucia. Charles, a former Windward Islands cricketer, has been president of the Saint Lucia National Cricket Association (SLNCA) since 2009, and has been a vocal supporter of Nanthan.

The challengers are Dr. Kishore Shallow of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, who is aiming to remove Nanthan from the presidency, and Dwain Gill of Grenada. Shallow was recently elected vice-president of CWI, and Gill is president of the Grenada Cricket Association.

With each of the four territorial boards entitled to send two electors to this weekend’s meeting, it would appear to be a 4-4 stalemate. But the winds of change may be blowing in the Windwards as well. The electors are usually the president and vice-president of the individual boards, but sources indicate that in the case of Saint Lucia at least, there are moves afoot to replace vice-president Sean Alcindor with long-time Charles ally, Patrick Felix, president of the local Umpires Association, and principal secretary of the SLNCA.

The big question, once again, is whether any sort of consensus has been sought from those who elected Nanthan, Charles, Shallow, and Gill. Multiple sources within the SLNCA claim that affiliates of the Association were never consulted with regard to the election.

    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
    The father says: Adventure awaits the bold and courageous. Many will see this as trench-warfare, but I assure you that there is way more power in authority that my people are walking in over the whole earth. What wasn’t tapped into before will come easy in this hour. Places that didn’t fall and made sense previously will now fit and make sense. You are not alone; my spirit is established in my decrees and my word will not return to me void. My winds will take you through all the advisory unscalved. Hold unto everything with a lose grip. What I place in your day may only be there for a short time. Many assignments are quick but just as vital as the longer ones. See me working behind the scenes, I will move and shift you to what is needed around you. Take on only what I say is yours to accomplish. Focus on your own task and let my peace and rest find you at the end of the day.
    I am so proud of you. May is your month of unexpected favor and release over your life, over your circumstances and what has kept you bound to release you completely. Even as the warfare intensifies, know that the battle was already won. By mid-month, you will see the tide turn and what limited your progress to retreat. Nothing will stop what I designed for your days. Many do not even realize that deliverance is the key to their problem. Do not let your eyes go dim or your ears become deaf. Do not be lured into a slumber thinking all is well. It is in your power to change. You are victorious so stand against the enemy of your soul. Be aware of your surroundings, dropping your guard will leave you vulnerable. I am coming to you with new strategies for future gain as well as to avoid the snares of the enemy. You are walking into better days, do you believe? What you believe you will see, is what you will see.
    Your faith is what allows the manifestation, cast aside the yesterdays of sorrow and disappointments. The regrets have no place in your now. I will make the way where there was no way. The natural eyes will fail you but the spirit to my spirit will guide you to glory. To climb the mountain takes work but at the summit you will be gifted with great wisdom and perspective. Time to start going beyond the average, this is your year of loss payment suffered. I do not want you to look back to see that things are in balancing order, instead just keep running forward. Many get stuck in just watching the past to see how and when I bring justice but does you no good service. It merely keeps you bound to those who have trespassed against you. I said to forgive, and, in this hour, I am giving you a fresh perspective about how this pure forgiveness will look through the power of the cross.
    * These are the words of – Yahushua Hamashiach.
    Do you know him, he knows you? Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed, no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
