AIDS Camp Power Supply Ordered to Be Disconnected by the Ingraham Government

Bahamas Press is appalled by the actions of the Ingraham government to discontinue the power supply to the Aids Camp in Southwestern New Providence.

Cold and mean-spirited are the action of the Ingraham government as we are told for the past six month the people of the safe house, battling the virus, were told by BEC to PAY THE BILL or face disconnection.

Sources at BEC have told Bahamas Press, “The Ingraham government ordered the disconnection as residents, that were back up in paying the bill for months.

We cry shame on the people who run BEC and by extension this WICKED DEMONIC MEAN-SPIRITED Ingraham administration, which did the same to children who could not afford a decent education by cutting subventions to private school, yet they found millions in public money to build roads and extend a port.

THEY HAVE NO DAMN SHAME!

  1. Lady Russell you sure do make reading interesting, I love how your colorful language seems to get under everyone’s skin.

    All that running on about how Glenroy did not start the AIDS camp and it still resulted/concluded that he did.I guess it takes intellect to dicifer this, ha ha

    Nevertheless it is a problem that our brothers and sisters are facing and all ABLE Bahamians need to assist in this matter however they can. It pains me to hear how may Bahamians are suffering (more than we can imagine) while others are sucking the land dry.

  2. You people are so……….. please stop saying that Ingraham turn off the lights I think He was in the House voting on the BTC Sale. So let’s all join together and help in this national cost and put some monies on the All Saints Bill at BEC so the power can be restored.

      Please re-read your post, as you sound like that mindless idiot whose colletion of a paycheck for which he has not ‘hit a lick’, causes over-exuberance, resulting in flatulence!

  3. @ Lady Russell,

    Instead of running on with your usual nonsense why don’t you go down to BEC and pay something on the bill? You are such a drama queen and clearly have a lot of time on your hands.

    • @Shirley

      Are you drunken Shirley from Freeport, who married that flaming queer of a politician who continues to embarrass us internatioally?

      I suspect that you are sight-impaired and hard of hearing, since you commpletely missed the point of my posts regarding the destitute and dying AIDS patients at the All Saints Camp, who have had their electricity disconnected.

      Your disinterest and lack of sensitivity for the plight of others tells me much about your political philosophy. Red? Right?

      Your venomous comments reflect that you visited my Facebook page and are clearly jealous of my person, time and talents, so may I suggest that you consult my Creator. He made me beautiful, intelligent,sensitive,creative, communicative, compassionate, caring, and capable. All gifts and talents for which I am most grateful.

      So please address your displeasure with me to GOD’S COMPLAINT DEPT (He’s my boss). Oh, and best of luck, eh!

  4. i will be making my contribution tomrrow and will try to encourage my family members and co-workers to join me…..thanks for bringing the information

  5. BEC is not the government! That is the problem, like Thomas Finley said, you can’t have it both ways! On the other hand if the Government promised to not charge for electricity, they should honor that. (that bill is high! $73k) One more thing, stop calling it the Aids camp,it’s All Saints Camp I’m told

    • But why would a government not allow then 54 victims of AIDS have light when they allowed pole #44 to be connected in Mackey Yard to connect over 200 families who never paid a dime? What kind a SUGAR IS THIS?
      ONLY IN THE BAHAMAS!BP

  6. BEc has a right to disconnect all persons for non-payment. But, in this case, they may have exercised some pity and allowed the power to remain on just like they allow many government departments and Ministries to remain connected despite them owing millions of dollars. Indeed, the government through its many Ministries owes more money to BEC than all of the delinquent consumers combined.The All Saints facility provide a service that the government either cannot or refuses to provide.There must be some balance here between the public good, the welfare of AIDS sufferers and the need to collect the amount owed.

  7. THE PROBLEM IS SIMPLE. LIGHTS ARE OFF BECAUSE THE BILL IS HIGH AND WAAAY OVERDUE. WHY DON’T WE DEAL WITH THIS IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY POSSIBLE

    LETS ASK EVERY SINGLE BAHAMIAN WHO HAS A HEART, to go to BEC today, and put $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 or whatever they can afford on that bill….I guarantee you, the LIGHTS would be on TOMORROW!

    I MADE MY CONTRIBUTION . Its ALL SAINTS CAMP ACCOUNT. ( CUSTOMER # is 302305 ) and (THE LOCATION # is 437434) The remaining balance is a whooping $73,008.90 I will send out a blast email and ask for persons to donate. We can ask the government to write off this bill, but we have to remember that BEC has bills to pay too and the more bills they write off, the higher OUR bills are going to get to make up for it! We can help ourselves by helping others.

  8. Thank you for highlighting this BP.

    When the late, Rev. Glenroy Nottage started the charitable work of providing Hospice care to those afflicted with AIDS at the Carmichael Rd fascility, The Bahamas government committed to supply electricity to The All Saints Camp, free of charge.

    As Rev. Glenroy Nottage was the brother of Dr B.J. Nottage, perhaps this cruel and vindictive crew of public administrators are attempting to embarrass the good doctor!

    Or this Government has calculated the cost of providing electricity to the dying and has decided to hasten their departure, as a cost cutting measure. This is unaceptable for our Christian nation, where the rights and dignity of citizens are guaranteed by the Bahamas Constitution.

    Whatever the government’s illogical reason for disconnecting the power supply to the sick and dying patients at the All Saints Camp, whose need for clean linen and constant disinfection of their viral environment is ongoing, May the God of this nation judge their motives and repay them accordingly!

    • @phillipa russell
      As much I try to ignore your asinine comments you invoke a furor in me that is almost impossible to contain.What does the lights being turned of at the aids camp have to do with the late Rev Glenroy or his brother Dr Nottage ? The all saint camp was founded by father Dean at the old saints Johns campus on market street. This camp was intended to be a rehabilitative camp for young men that abused drugs.not until several years later that Glenroy Nottage moved in and opened the camp to those afflicted with aids.At that point it was decided that thjere would have to be a seperation of those with aids and those tha tabused drugs. T

      • at the point it was decided that there would have to be a seperation of those with aids and those that abuse drugs. That is when Rev. Glenroy decided to take his camp to the carmicahel road site.At no time did any of the other NOTTAGES have any affiliation with this compound.So for you to use this unfortunate scenario to try and embarrass the goverment just prove how desperate you are.As much as I try to understand where you are coming from I am always baffled by your outbursts. One time you are preaching and praising God and at other times you cusssing and telling some one about their bad MAW and what hole they came out from and then on Sundays you are on Mr Jones television talking about God and his redemptive powers. LADY YOU ARE LAUGHABLE AND CANNOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY

        • @ Pratty

          You are so knowledgeable about the formation of the All Saints Camp, were you a former resident?

          Or were you an acolyte of the late Venerable Dean Granger?

          Finally, were you also in agreement with the government’s decision to relocate illegal Haitians fromb Mackey Yard, who received years of free electricity from pole #44, to the Ciorner Motel, courtesy of the Dept. of Social Services?

          • @ Phillipa
            So what if I was, not that i am but what if I was ? Would that make me less of a human being ? EVER SINCE YOU GOT FIRED FROM YOUR SHORT STINT AT RESORTS INTERNATIONAL YOU HAVE BEEN LOSING YOUR HEAD.THE FINAL STROKE THAT REALLY SENT YOU OVER THE TOP WAS WHEN THE PRIME MINISTER FIRED YOU PUBLICLY.THERE IS ONLY ONE THING LEFT FOR YOU NOW. THAT IS TO SURRENDER TO THE MENTAL WARD

          • @ Pratty

            AHHAAA! SO YOU WERE A RESIDENT OF THE CAMP!
            THEN WHY ARGUE WITH THE TRUTH OF MY POST, PRATTY?

            Btw, I worked for Resorts as the Customer Service Manager in the late 80’s, when Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace was the General Manager, a position from which I formally resigned to start my own business “Island Promotions International” an entity which has produced a comfortable income from that time through today. Praise the Lord!

            So how you doin’?

            Pratty dear, if you do not know a female personally, “Lady” “Madam” “Miss” “Mrs” “Ms” are all appropriate salutations! I happen to prefer “Lady”, but you may call me anything you wish, however, do not expect a civil response!

            Finally, on the subject of mental health, you really should continue with your counselling sessions, even though you have completed your rehabilitative process. And may I suggest that you commit to the Salvation process, as well!

            It (Salvation)works better than electro-therapy and lobotomy!

            Best regards,

            LR***

  9. we cannot have it both ways. We either want the government to get out or stay in. Do we want the political interference to continue in our public corporations or not?

    • @Thomas Finley

      You seem to have little empathy for your afflicted Bahamian brothers and sisters who are in the final stages of dying from the Aids virus.

      However, where was your outrage for the discovery of lampole #44 in the middle of Mackey Yard providing free electricity for illegal Haitians?

      Are you a real Bahamian?
