Dear Editor,

Usain Bolt, Michael Lee Chin, Fr Richard Ho Lung and Robert Mugabe can rightfully be placed in the same boat because they do have something special in common. They are among the recipients of the high honour of the Order Of Jamaica.

Birds of the same feather will certainly flock together, but are birds flocking together necessarily of the same feather?

It can never be smooth sailing for the others, when one member aboard keeps rocking the boat! It is still not too late to do the honourable and sensible thing and simply revoke Mugabe's Order of Jamaica.

Daive R Facey
