THE CABINET OF BARBADOS and the tourism and national security ministries will be working feverishly in the coming days to negate the bad image created by Monday’s shooting during the climax of Grand Kadooment, the final event of Crop Over 2017.

That assurance has come from Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler after Chapman Lane resident Tareid Rock was shot dead in front of shocked revellers, and another 20 people treated for gunshot-related injuries, all part of a bloody end to Grand Kadooment along the Spring Garden Highway.

Sinckler said the violent acts on Monday represented a “clear and present danger” to all Barbadians, who should always feel safe, especially on a day like Grand Kadooment, when the country was on show to the rest of the world.
