It is simply amazing how quickly those that are now condemning the City Council's move to clear the Stabroek Market area of makeshift stalls have forgotten several things:
1. The transportation of a sold explosive device which detonated in one of these stalls resulted in the death of one man and injury to 19 others, 5 of whom are still hospitalized.
2. City Hall had commenced a similar exercise to rid the area of these very stalls in early 2010 which was halted to give vendors enough time to relocate to the area aback of the Fire Service that was provided to them.
3. Numerous criminal activities take place within this vicinity that includes the sale of firearms, harbouring of wanted and suspicious characters, selling of drugs, robberies etc.
4. The demolition of these stalls makes the flow of traffic more free and eases congestion on the road ways immediately in front of Demico House.
We don't expect the political whores at Congress Place nor Mark Benschop and Freddie Kissoon to give any consideration to all of the above as they are only interested in prostituting those vendors for what ever political gain may be had.
