Robbed of her dream!

That is how Diana Maloney is feeling 24 years after Government seized her land to construct the highway and roundabout at St Patrick’s, Christ Church.

At that time she had already started the foundation for her new home and was caught off-guard when she discovered that her land had been earmarked for public development.

Government, in exchange, promised to compensate her for the inconvenience, as well as give her land at Coverley, Christ Church. but Maloney has been waiting for more than two decades for the property to be officially transferred to her, and, in the meantime, her dream of building a family home has dissipated.

“I am a big woman, 63 years old, and I still living at my mother’s house,” Maloney cried, as she spoke to the Sunday Sun with her son Elijah Tafari at her side.

As age has crept up on her, she has decided to pass on the land as well as the fight with government to Tafari. (MB)
