Mother of 5 needs house
FACING AN “8 P.M. CURFEW” and other “tough rules” set by her mother, an unemployed 40-year-old woman who has five children urgently wants to get a home of her own.
She is appealing to the National Housing Corporation (NHC) or the general public to get her out of her mother’s Skeete Road, Jackmans, St Michael residence.
Jacqueline Blunt told the SATURDAY SUN that she was “in need of some place of my own to get from around my mother because it is giving me stress and raising my blood pressure”.
Blunt said that following a family dispute, her mother had given her a last Tuesday deadline to move out. She said she visited NHC seeking a house, but was unsuccessful.
“I am not comfortable where I am and my children are not comfortable where we at. All day there is quarrelling and this ain’t good for me or my children!
Meanwhile, her sister Kathy-Ann Blunt, who spoke on behalf of their mother, said it would be a blessing for Jacqueline to find her own home.
Kathy-Ann complained that her sister refused to abide by rules and assist in paying bills.
“I would be glad for her to find somewhere to live because that would put my mother, who [is] suffering from high blood pressure, out of stress,” said the angry sister. (AH)
