THE EDITOR: In the interest of the steelband movement I do not wish to tarnish the Pan Trinbago brand, though the organisation has done that all on its own. I have never publicly denounced Pan Trinbago in spite of the fact that it has been poorly administered/managed.
It is agonising however to see the organisation reach its lowest in history and that is extremely damaging to all steelbands.
Please, executive members, including Keith Diaz and especially Richard Forteau, go in peace. At the same time please take your adviser with you. And please do not ever come around any steelbands again.
I hope and pray you all go in peace so that the movement can try to find its moorings.
