According to Social Economic Development Minister Guy Joseph, there are persons in the civil service that are trying to undermine the sitting St. Lucian Government.
Joseph was speaking in response to the protests by 5th form students at the Choiseul Secondary School last week.
The minister claimed that plans for the rehabilitation of the fifth form block were already in place but some officials in the Ministry of Education failed to disclose the information.
The minister said that he can give information on everything about the planned project including the sites that were identified for the relocation of the students.
Joseph further said that plans will have gone ahead in January 2017.
“Some people want to make it look like this Government is incompetent and don’t know what they will doing,” Joseph said.
“If needs be I will call out their names at the appropriate time,” Joseph continued.
Protests erupted last week after students at the fifth form block of the Choiseul Secondary School complained of poor classroom conditions. The classrooms were reportedly flooded after recent heavy rains.
