A WAR OF WORDS has erupted between talk show moderator Peter Wickham and members of the Rastafari Progressive Movements over the latter’s opposition to taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

The row began last Thursday during Wickham’s hosting of Starcom Network’s Down To Brass Tacks radio call-in programme when he said: “If the Rastafarians believe they are better off not taking it, then they stay up in the hills and smoke their herb and stay away from society.”

Subsequently, a video has gone viral featuring two members of the movement, Lumumba Batson and Calvin Bongo Lights Chase, speaking about the issue. In it, they make several remarks about Wickham’s sexuality.

When contacted, Batson said it was a case of an eye for an eye. (CA)
