Statement By Central Basseterre Community Leader Nubian Greaux On Recent Shooting Incident

Basseterre, St. Kitts, January 15th, 2021 (ZIZ News):  A leader in the Central Basseterre community is calling for conflict resolution in the wake of the death of two young men who were shot earlier this week.

Nubian Greaux in a post on his Facebook page said “Conflict is inevitable with human nature but it is our choice to be combative as a result. Growing up in McKnight, young men have always been branded as ghetto youths with no potential or a burden on society but we continue to break the glass ceiling by producing Engineers, Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers and other prominent professionals.”

He said the fact that the lives of Lamont Heyliger and Jahquan Merritt were “taken away so violently and with such brute force should make us as a society do much introspection on the lives of these young men and even that of our own children.”

Greaux ended by saying that as a key member of the Peace Programme, he is reminding the youths and all associated with the Programme that he is willing to assist in avoiding another injury or tragic death.

He said “We must continue to change the prevailing reality by building a new model and making the current one obsolete.”
