KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) Council on Thursday reported that it was not notified about four individuals allegedly being involved in mismanagement, misappropriation of funds, impropriety and nepotism at the institution as the saga deepens.

On the crime scene, 43-year-old Bishop Gibson High School teacher Carolyn Campbell was shot dead at her home in Melrose Mews, Manchester early Wednesday morning.

In other news, the governing Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) has scoffed at alleged corruption claims by the People's National Party (PNP) at the vigil held by the party Thursday in Half-way-tree, St Andrew.

The JLP then responded to the PNP's vigil saying it was a barefaced political hypocrisy adding that the PNP has no moral authority to speak on corruption.

In sport, the Sunshine Girls, who ranked number two in the world, started their 2019 Netball World Cup campaign with staggering 85-29 win against Fiji at the M&S Bank Arena on Friday
