Parliamentary Representative for Vieux Fort South and Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony has acknowledged that greater focus needs to be placed in the south of the island.

Dr Anthony said that much of the country’s development efforts have been placed in the north over the years, “forcing the south to resemble an abandoned frontier”.

“As representative for Vieux Fort South, I am reminded daily of the hardship that the residents of the south face,” he said while addressing the launch of the Jermain Defoe Foundation on June 12, 2013.

“It was commonplace to feel that the south was left out and would only benefit from the leftovers. The consequence was under-development in programmes and care for the youth, elderly and poor,” he added.

“Therefore, there is a critical need for greater focus on the south and to ensure that we put in place the necessary support structures needed to deal with the plight of thousands of people.”

  1. Who cares what was not done!! all that matters is what needs to be done the north of lucia was mainly developed by the hard work of the south.. namely agriculture, so its high time we see some benefits!! GOOD ON YOU PM. never heard that from the other party all they care about is developing their votes with a whole lotta bullshit promises.

  2. Again Nothing for Soufriere, after being exploited year after year for the development of the rest of the Island. Soufriere still looks like a ghost town. Once again thank you Hon Dr. Kenny D. Anthony Prime Minister of Castries and Vieux Fort.

  3. Oh! Give me a break! Kenny has represented Vieux Fort for a good seventeen years and it's only now the man is making such a statement. "Didn't you realize that more focused needed to be placed in the south during your prior two terms as Prime Minister?" While I definitely agree, I find your level of representation to be shameful.

  5. It is high time! For a town with the country's only international airport, it is a sad and shameful picture. I am happy about the long overdue facelift of the square, looking forward to the administrative complex to be constructed within this administrative term and the transformation into a university centre. Hopefully this can provide vfortians and the south with viable economic opportunities.

    Hope with all these big plans for Vfort there are plans to do something about Shanty Town, Bruce Ville and environs.
