PR – The New National Party (NNP) takes this opportunity to advise the Royal Grenada Police Force of its concern and displeasure with an incident which occurred on the night of Thursday 23rd Of March, 2023 at the Brizan Community Centre. At the time of this incident the New National Party was staging a private indoor party meeting which was not publicly advertised or otherwise promoted as a public event.
At this said meeting one Kem Kendon Jones, Political Activist and Talk Show Host entered the meeting, uninvited and proceeded to engage in several disruptive acts including unauthorized broadcasting of the meeting and verbal attacks on the host of the meeting Dr. Keith C. Mitchell (Member of Parliament Leader of His Majesty’s Opposition, Political Leader of the New National Party and Former Prime Minister).
Mr. Jones has been vocal in his dislike of Honourable Dr. Mitchell and has been known on several fora to make inflammatory, hateful and defamatory remarks against the Former Prime Minister, his family and the New National Party. As such his pattern of
showing up at various events in a provoking manner (Swearing in of the Opposition Leader July 4th 2022 at the Grenada Trade Centre Annex and Centenarian Birthday Party for Dr. Mitchells Mother on October 15th 2022).
The NNP intends to continue its round of meetings in every constituency, therefore, to avoid any reoccurrence or escalation we are seeking the intervention of the RGPF in ensuring that this type of provocation and disruption to our meetings does not reoccur. Our Party and its leadership may be unable to control the emotions of individual supporters and the outcome of further provocations if this trend is allowed to continue unaddressed.
