JLP Leader Andrew Holness has mobilized the Jamaica Labour Party to assist in the cleaning up communities in response to the current Chik-V epidemic.

The government is failing the people's test and the country is missing the leadership needed to guide Jamaica through these difficult times. The performance of the Prime Minister is being found seriously wanting as on several occasions she has failed to provide the leadership necessary to guide the country in the right direction.

This was noted today by Delano Seiveright, JLP caretaker for St. Thomas Eastern
