St.Kitts-Nevis Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Premier of Nevis Hon. Mark Brantley is expressing outrage at the senseless murder that took place on Nevis during the early hours of Easter Monday morning.
Police reports indicate that a vehicle carrying two females were fired upon some 30 plus times by unknown assailants leaving one female dead and the other hospitalized in serious condition.
In commenting on the tragic incident Hon. Brantley expressed outrage and called on citizens to unite in response to the senseless murder.
Hon. Brantley took to social media and stated “I have learnt of the tragic loss of yet another young life in Nevis (this time a young mother) and the injuries suffered by another young woman. My deepest condolences to the families affected by this terrible tragedy and to the whole Nevisian community. These senseless cowardly acts perpetuated by the few do not and will never define us as a society or a community. I urge all having information which can help the Police in their investigation to contact the Police urgently. The days of seeing and not seeing must now be over. This social disease of crime must have a united societal response. The harbourer is worse than the thief so if you see something please say something and let us work together to rid our societies of this cancer of criminality. Let us even as we register our outrage take a moment to pray for the victims and their families.”
