Julietta Gonzague is the new public relations officer (PRO) of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP).

Gonzague, who up until recently taught at the Vide Boutielle Secondary School, is better known to the St .Lucian public as Julie Bee, the calypsonian.  She has a bachelors degree in mass communications from Grambling State University.

At her inaugural press conference on Friday, the SLP PRO tackled a number of issues in the public domain including the findings of the Review on the use of Taiwanese Funds by the former United Workers Party (UWP) administration.

Gonzague accused the UWP of sidestepping the damning issues contained in the report.

In all of Allen Chastenet’s arguments, she said, he has yet to respond to a revelation in the audit implicating him: the existence of five cheques totalling $38,644 which were used to fund his election campaign in Soufriere.

The UWP organization maintained that during its tenure funds were managed appropriately, however Gonzague pointed out that the audit’s contents are clear as day, conducted by qualified individuals and substantiated by official documentation.

According to Gonzague, further audits are being undertaken into other social development activities, the results of which will be revealed at a later date.

  4. Jadia Jn. Pierre Emmanuel will now gain employment as an Economist at the Ministry of Agriculture. Who else will receive the job? I wonder why it is even being published on the government website!

  5. It's a shame how pathetically divided the nation is. People would swear by a colour. Shame on you all. Elevate yourself and free your minds from the yellow and red. Don't insult the young lady she made a move as a young professional. For those asking if she will be making 8000 salary. She is the PRO for the SLP PARTY not the government of salary. Nothing to do with the public coffers. So please stop thinking in Red & Yellow ALL the time. I thank goodness I not involved in those SLP and UWP rubbish. That's why the country cant go anywhere. One day St. Lucians will free themselves of IGNORANCE and open their minds.

    • she made a move as a young "professional" and what she chose to do is become the propoganda mouth piece for a rediculous poltiical party? What becomes of her when the SLP is out of office and the funds run out to pay her? I would not consider this a smart move.

      And Proud Lucian just becuase it is a woman does not mean that everyone should be supportive. Get over your gender base nonsense.

      • Mary what is wrong with the position. You say ridiculous, where were you when corruption ran rampant during 2006 and 2011. I believe that jealousy is alive and well and you Mary is a jealous individual. Go Juju....en rouge,, en rouge, en rouge

        • En rouge did not bring you any wealth as yet so shut up! How comes I don't see the lives of those who supported en rouge any different.
          You talk about corruption, well corruption is also in the guise of Roacha smell, NCA, Helenites and grynberg. Add them about and you may total enough money to have fixed the country.

  6. So young ~ So foolish! Joining a dead horse organisation such as the ruling SLP at this time. Very unpopular Govt right now. Not a thinking move at all sweetheart. You should have built your career in the teaching profession instead. What a loss of a gem for Vide Boutielle Secondary School. Poor kids. SMH

  8. What is the relevance of her face or salary? Give the girl a chance to prove herself? Why Lucians like that and some of them when in the same position can't do any better? Get a life or rather try to improve what you have because its clearly not satisfying if you feel you have to put someone else down to get gratification.
