False, scurrilous and defamatory – Dr. Anthony

Dr. Kenny Anthony

(PRESS RELEASE) – The following statement has been issued by Dr Kenny D. Anthony, former Prime Minister and Parliamentary Representative for Vieux Fort South:

“I have taken note that in several postings on Facebook and other social media, Ms. Kernisha Flavien, Public Relations Officer of the United Workers Party, wrote as follows:

“Kenny Anthony and the Labour Party continues to push a message of hatred, division and desperation all in an attempt to stop Saint Lucia from rising out of the economic disaster that he and his government left. Are Kenny and company responsible for giving orders to attempt to burn the Soufriere Hospital and equipment at the DSH construction site? What will they attempt to sabotage next? #Lock Them UP”.

This statement appeared on the UWP (Saint Lucia) website, the site of the “Citizens for Accountability & Progress (CAP), the UWP affiliated group UnitedPac as well as a so- called UnitedPac Conservative Movement. It was also shared and posted in language highly injurious and condemnatory of me by several other individuals on the social media with known UWP connections. The statements have also been reproduced on some social media outlets.

To add further insult to injury the United Workers Party issued a Press Statement to the same effect.

The meaning, innuendo and implications contained in the statements of Ms. Flavien and the United Workers Party are clear.

These statements are false, scurrilous, malicious and defamatory. In the circumstances, I want to make it absolutely clear to Ms. Flavien and the United Workers Party that I intend to take legal action to give them the opportunity to prove their allegations.”

  4. Some exotic SLP belly dancers can not even recall with any clarity how to make their party relevant again.

  5. The craven obsession with mendacity follows the SLP even in their obviously pointless opposition. To what levels of depravity and decay this party group will not succumb to is just simply amazing.

  6. Kenny, Alva, Pierre, Musa and Hilaire all subscribed to the notion and publicly said such words like "there will be no rest," "not over my dead body," etc. So when events such as these occur is Kenny justified in saying that it could not have occurred or that such speech could not possibly spur people to commit such acts??

    I wonder what is meant when people say that politicians have to be responsible in what they say? Well duhh!! Its simply because it can inspire violence or hate because supporters take cues from politicians (some are even fanatics). HATE SPEECHES WILL ULTIMATELY HAVE AN EFFECT on the populace whether by inspiration or creating an alternate reality.

  7. Jaunty's famous song "Go A Court," was sang about who??? So you see the number of hacks that were trying to discredit my statement that KDA is the most litigious politician in St. Lucia's history. Many people seem to be forgetting.

    Try to discredit people like Trump, see if it works.

  14. Mr Kenny needed to settle your deeds actions and words because what goes around always comes back to you.
    Take a long good and deserving break. cool out and try to enjoy your retirement age

    (32)(16)
  15. Didnt he just talk about freedom of speech like just last week or a few weeks ago hmm interesting eh

    (37)(16)
    • Did you say disingenuous?

      (3)(0)
    • Fix d road, you need a change of name to Fix d brain. There is a big difference in exercising freedom of speech and saying things to malign somebody. Now if you do not understand that basic difference, you need plenty help.

  16. Kenny let me know when you out of Diapers - At least I can afford to get you some diapers. The game is called politics. You have played it more than any politician I know back in St.Lucia. Both Compton and Odlum were your victims back in the days. You either continue to play your politics and enjoy your political points if you can score them today or get your sorry ass out of the arena so everyone knows you are out - I have ordered the Diapers !!!

  17. These behaviours and action by the leaders are the results of the lawless crimes taking place in st lucia....just imagine they can accuse each other of such malicious acts..tief nuh luv fi see tief witt long bag.i do not trust either of you.

  18. When I read the UWP’s Press Release on the alleged DHS fire this is what I posted : “Well Well Well. UWP at it gain . When will they understand that these tactics are not new and have been practiced by desperate governments elsewhere. Somehow, the UWP releases come after a fire and they claim arson. Soufriere 1st fire the party had a release claiming arson. Soufriere 2nd fire they had a release claiming arson. DHS fire and they have a release claiming arson. They are so quick to have a press release after a fire but quiet on everything else. Uhmmmmmmmm????? Is their a connection between those causing the fire and writing the releases? Are those fires meant to distract from the real issues facing the country? Is the UWP only capable of sending releases that accuse people? Is it the new game plan of the government? These are questions worth pondering.”

  19. I applaud the former PM on that stand. The UWP was elected to govern the country. In my humble view they spend more time throwing mud at Kenny and the SLP than getting things right. Every issue they respond with “Kenny and SLP did it too”. They do not even have the brains to realize that it makes them sound like a second eleven SLP. Now I know some flambeau hypocrites or brainless individuals will try to refer to Kenny’s comments about the Vieux Fort video and Freedom of speech. That 43% with only preschool education according to PM Chastanet will never understand the difference between free speech and maligning a person’s character. Just wait for them.

  21. those three words just described you, Kenny. go back to sleep. nobody cares what you say. you and the slp is meaningless.

    (33)(19)
  22. What the hell is all this about!! My people we need to come together work together for the betterment of this beautiful island we once had. How can our youth do well or be impressed with our leaders or have role models when the leaders of government are at each other's throats!! For peat sake!!! Stop the bashing each other!! Smh

    • This is a lot of childish crap you are talking there. You are so damn immature. When people elect crappy politicians, what do you expect to hear coming from these bags of crap? Sense?

  25. It was only a matter of time I saw this coming a mile away. In todays world if you are going to open your mouth in the media or post allegations be prepared to back them up. So many people has sue other people for doing just that and have won.

    (15)(5)
  26. This Kernisha Flavien is a notoriously toxic individual. I agree she needs to be held accountable for her words.

    Just because you can say something doesn't mean it has to spoken. This type of politics is unrestrained and unrefined; for lack of a better word, ghetto. And seems very similar to something Trump would say.

    I would prefer a constructive debate on key economic and social issues between the two leading parties as opposed to the current diatribe.

  27. The man hasn't changed. Still hiding in the bush and throwing stones

  28. That’s all you do a*^hol*. Take people to court.

    (18)(14)
  29. my girl if what you did is true then you went toooooo far kenny already did his damage leave him alone and let him stay out of our lives it was already good we not hearing from him so leave it so but you just had to go and wake up a sleeping dog

    (12)(13)
  30. UnitedPac and CAP are facebook accounts. Anyone could establish a facebook account on someone else's name and include a picture of the person to that account. Hence Kenny should know that's a lost fight. Doubt that case will be filed.

    (17)(14)
  31. Oh please you playing scare tactic it will not work . Go get Asstaphan your buddy bring him in from Dominica as usual let him prove your case. Poor Kenny I know how you feel we bruise your ego after election I also know for you it is hard to be a HAS BEEN. Move on SLP days are gone learn to accept it the six of you all boys still cannot get a grip sorry the people of St.Lucia wanted a change you all were trifling we needed some fresh air so get use to it .

    (24)(14)
  32. So sad that the SLP would sink so low as to burn people's property, sigh Guy will deal with your tales scaring off investors thank God is he that putting money in my pocket ....push it to the limit ....hustle hard...Phillip J Machastah

  33. Take them bastards yo court.!

    (16)(12)
    • that is his famous battle cry. he would get his ass kicked in court just like he did in the election. he is describing himself in his comments. go back to sleep Kenny. you are meaningless and ignored.

      (18)(17)
  34. That's a questions not a statement. Your old gimmicks eh working. Toof. Get out of here you has been, you failure. Soo tired of your division. The WORSE thing to enter the politics of St. Lucia, including Frederick and Chastanet. What a waste and disappointment you have proven to be dear Dr.

    (10)(12)
    • If PM Chastanet reads your comment SonTown, he will use it as evidence of one with only preschool education. Now seek to reduce that from the 43%.

    (14)(12)
  37. Kenny, please please stop this bull S**t. Whats the difference between the UWP asking the question and the incident you so want to defend in Vieux Fort

    (13)(12)
  38. You asked for evidence that KDA is the most litigious politician in St. Lucia's history, here we go.

    (14)(7)
  39. The UWP is like a runaway train .and the driver has no license.Let me make myself clear im not affiliated to either party.I have voted for red and yellow.But the leadership approach of Mr Chastanet leaves much to be desired.He comes across as a clueless dictator.Elections,please hurry!

    • SLP is renowned for creating our many lovely ghettos. Its many achievements include the Conway ghetto, the Grass Street ghetto, the Marchand ghetto, the Agard ghetto, the Grave Yard ghetto, the Bruce Ville ghetto.

  40. Boy oh boy!! You guys know Kenny love de courts and yet still your'll provoking him.....lol....he took the bate.

    (23)(2)
  41. It's the legal manner to clear the air. Too much baseless propaganda in this country, which is more detrimental than dark science.

    (11)(2)
  42. This is what you do best KDA......sue people, raise taxes and grow the island's debt to unmanageable levels with little to show to justify it.

    (18)(9)
    • Realist be real. What you claiming I see happening now. Are you saying that Kenny is still running the country? Think before you comment!!

      (0)(0)
  43. It was about time Dr. Anthony! I totally agree. These people have no respect for a man who led this country with such pride and dignity. Those words are indeed derogatory. It is called Defamation of Character.

    (12)(20)
  44. TOOT TOO BOOSHIZEEE

    Kenny is a brilliant tactician, but keeps making some classical political mistakes. You dont buy into the brand created of you by the other side. In a few weeks everyone would forget about this. In fact, no one took notice of this. Why escalate the situation where the entire country now knows that such an allegation was even made...Wait! Hold up! >>> KENNY STILL HAS POLITICAL AMBITIONS! LOL.......PHILIP PIERRE PWI AH SAH!
