Good governance is reflected by the conduct and positive outlook on life held by a country?s citizens. But when you have nearly 500 murders each year for the past several years, not to mention widespread homelessness and vagrancy, deplorable health service, decrepit roads and pavements, lack of proper supply of water and so many ills in our society, these reflect the excessively bad Governance by our politicians over the many years.

It is utterly disgraceful having recorded 11 murders already within four days of the New Year, and while I?m writing there may be more. It is not good enough for our Government to keep on reciting empty platitudes while countless killings go unabated.

I would like to know if there has been any in-depth study of how many families are affected by murders, directly or indirectly? I would surmise to say maybe one out of 10 families has experienced a loved one being murdered.

Do we even begin to understand the trauma of having lost a loved one? Or as many as we have over the past 25 years in this small country to gun/violence? Apart from the inconsolable pain and grief to be had, not having any answers or justice for that loved one is the final failure of a country.

What of the many children who will grow up without fathers, and the pain they must go through.

There are too many children like that. What are their lives going to be like without proper male figures? I?m afraid we are building a very rotten society and will reap the whirlwind.

Successive governments have failed miserably.

Maybe they just don?t know how to run a country, even a small, rich one like ours. Our murder rate per 100,000 persons is more than most first world countries.

Our leaders are all inadequate.

Dr Rowley, you are the PM, you are in charge, you can?t blame anyone else for the utter dismay and hopelessness citizens feel right now.
