Jamaica must change
It has been months since I left Jamaica. After facing many difficulties in setting up a business in Jamaica, I decided to invest in Myanmar, where unprecedented changes abound.
I am learning, unlearning and relearning every day. But my heart is still with Jamaica: UWI, Princess Street, Montego Bay and the hills of Kingston.
I cannot blindly advocate without making a few comments on Jamaica. Today, I believe Jamaican leaders and leadership must change. I also believe the leadership of our political parties must find genuine and candid ways to work together. Transgenerational jealousy, rivalries and guilty cash-crop plantations in an island of 2.7 million people must be removed with determination and will. Christian principles and values must be reinstated and preached. Social mobility and equal opportunities for all must be encouraged.
My Jamaican dream is not over. I look forward to coming back.
