Speaker raps Sherod Duncan over misleading post on MPs being β€œfood poisoned”

Speaker of the National Assembly Manzoor Nadir today reprimanded Alliance For Change (AFC) parliamentarian Sherod Duncan over a misleading social media post he made regarding an incident which occurred on Monday.

Duncan posted to Facebook that: β€œSeveral APNU+AFC MPs may have been food poisoned by food prepared by Parliament’s caterer(s). Developing story.”

But Speaker Nadir explained that other parliamentarians as well as parliamentary staff have reported digestion issues after consuming the meals which were prepared by the caterers contracted by the Parliament Office.

β€œWe had an unfortunate occurrence yesterday (Monday) and many of the members and staff who ate, have had severe intestinal issues. And I note that one member has posted and imputing some other motive,” Nadir stated.

While he did not identify the member, Nadir went on to read the post which was made by Duncan.

β€œAs far as I know, the incident that happened, did not segregate APNU/AFC MPs alone. But it was an occurrence which we are investigating,” he explained.

Just before he handed the floor over to Duncan to make his presentation during the 2020 Budget Debate, the Speaker expressed that β€œI trust that that offensive post will be taken down and that members will continue to carry themselves with the decorum with a member of the highest law-making entity in our land.”

The social media post, which was made at around 15:35hrs, had not been taken down nor amended at the time of this article being published.

What is it with these Coalition members. No respect for institutions. If that post is still up he may be openly disrespecting the Speaker of the Assembly of which he is a member. He should be sanctioned.

Look lady...stop posting this nansense eh....it takes your beauty away....

Sounds like something Rickford Burke would say.

Fake News. They just need attention. The lady deals in conspiracies. She almost kicked my ass when I told her that the CCJ would rule against Sanctimonious Gangster Granger and his mafia. She could not understand the process of running for office and being elected.
