MY EYE: After CEPEP clean-up

This photo was sent to us by Bailah Gopie via the My Eye feature in the CNC3 App.

Gopie says; "This is when the recreation ground owners and the local council at Soledad Road Claxton Bay have no regards for the residents living across from the playground. They would clean around the ground and leave all the garbage that is left against the fence. All they need to do is trim the trees and clean up after there is an event and don't discriminate against people who speak up."

Volney takes to Facebook to represent CEPEP workers

Former Justice Minister Herbert Volney has taken to his personal Facebook page to represent CEPEP workers in his community.

Volney, who was a High Court judge before becoming a minister, compares the salaries of the CEPEP workers to that of a judge.

Volney posted the following on Facebook:

"Hey friends. It's the end of another week and today I wear the CEPEP colours as I've been very close to this group of workers in the constituency of St Joseph. 

Today is Friday at the end of our fortnight.

Salaries for CEPEP workers being processed

The Minister of Local Government says information coming from his Permanent Secretary explains that the funds were received by the Ministry last Friday.

The Ministry says the funds will be processed today and that the cheque will be given to CEPEP on Tuesday.

The Ministry says this will allow payment to take place on or before this Friday.

Cepep denies terminating contracts with no care

Cepep is vehemently denying that it is aggressively terminating contracts with no care for the personal lives of the employees nor the impact it would have in cleaning water courses during the wet season.

This comes after the issues were raised by Opposition MP, Dr Roodal Moonilal. In a two-page ad, the company said it is returning to its original mandate.

Which is to provide short-term employment for contractors and its employees for a maximum period of three years so that they can then go into the private sector with the proper know how.
