Kamla Persad-Bissessar

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar

“Ludicrous.” This is how People’s National Movement (PNM) Women’s League Chairman Camille Robinson-Regis has described the Opposition’s call for an apology for comments made by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley. Rowley on Monday said Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s silence on the Marlene McDonald tipping-off issue was due to a disease commonly found in fowls called “pip”.

The United National Congress (UNC) Women’s Arm has condemned what it called a “disrespectful attack” on Persad-Bissessar while Couva North MP Ramona Ramdial called for an apology, saying the comments amounted to “women-shaming”.
