Following the circulation of a malicious text attacking NDP chairman Myron Walwyn’s wife, Judith, VIP leader Andrew Fahie has ran to her defence.
“I categorically denounce this kind of attack on Mrs Judith Walwyn,” Fahie said in a post on social media Friday. “We in the political arena can agree to disagree but family members are off limits.”
Fahie denounced attack stating that he knows, firsthand, how hurtful such messages can be to family members on ‘the receiving end’.
“My wife has suffered also at the hands of unnamed, unknown persons who hide in the shadows and malign individuals. I can say here and now, family members are off-limits and have no place in the political discourse,” said Fahie who is widely perceived as the political arch-rival of Minister Walwyn.
He continued: “I believe that in the interest of the territory it behoves me to urge all that are in the political arena to conduct themselves accordingly. Let us stick to the issues and solutions. Let us conduct ourselves with respect. This type of disrespectful conduct has no place in our politics.”
His statements come amid similar ones for Deputy Governor David Archer, Jr who has reminded persons of the political code of conduct that is in effect for political parties, candidates, and their supporters.
