Nassau Bahamas — Bahamas Press has been reliably informed that Rodney Moncur had a meeting with the Minister of Education, Hon Desmond Bannister In reference to the matter involving the young girl at the Gerald Cash Primary School .
A source with knowledge of the situation advised BP, “ Rodney is being disingenuous, he met with the Minister in the House of Assembly on the matter. In a subsequent meeting in the presence of the Principal, Mr. Clarke, it was agreed that the child would be registered free of Charge. Further, it was directed that the child be placed on the school lunch program”.
We now retract our story and issue an apology to the Hon Desmond Bannister. We regret not confirming this story before publishing and we will make space available to the Minister or the Min of Education to respond. Suffice it to say, we have now checked with several sources with knowledge of the situation and we are satisfied that all efforts have been advanced to assist the young girl. In fact, we believe that the Minister has gone above and beyond the call of duty in this instance.
