“Two sides in eviction row”


A MOTHER WHO WAS evicted from a National Housing Corporation (NHC) property is crying foul, but the state agency is saying she is only crying wolf, as she was no more than a squatter. ncc

Latoya Barrow is claiming that after more than two decades, the place where she was living in Rock Close, The Pine, St Michael, is no longer home for her and her three children.

Following the eviction last week Monday, Barrow, 41, is staying at her aunt Nicola Alleyne, in Golden Rock, also The Pine, where there are already ten people in that house.

“I have a 21-year old son who goes to the Children’s Development Centre, a 15-year-old son and a 14-year-old daughter who go to St George Secondary. My middle son is with his father but the rest of us have to sleep in the front house,” she said.

However, an official from the NHC, who requested anonymity, said Barrow had not been there for the 22 years she was claiming.
