Meanwhile, Minister of Information Daryl Vaz has agreed that the government has gotten positive and negative criticisms for meeting with the entertainers; but emphasized that the government has a right and a responsibility to intervene in anything that is spiraling out of control.
MAJ Chairman, Gary Allen, questioned the government’s ability to determine which issue is taken to a Jamaica House meeting or for a Jamaica House intervention with so much happening in the society. (CLIP)
The criticism came after Prime Minister Bruce Golding and other Cabinet Ministers met with the controversial deejays Vybz Kartel and Mavado in an attempt to reduce tension between fans of the Gaza and Gully headed by the two deejays.
