Most telling picture from the coverage of the past week’s sweep of Western Kingston–an archival photo of Dudus business partner Justin O’Gilvie signing a government contract, with the Minister of Transport and Works looking on. O’Gilvie was taken into custody on Saturday.
The article also provides a good and rowdy comment section, and an entertaining sampling of nicknames of posse ringmen, who seem to often have badass names to begin with (see Prince Bucket, aka ‘Tugman’).
The Financial Times gives the best analysis yet of the ongoing Dudus affair, and explains why the raids in Tivoli Gardens “are the culmination of a political scandal.”
From my own informal poll in Kingston today, opinion is split on whether Dudus remains on the island, or is long gone.
