Attorney Kareem Musa, a son of former two-term Prime Minister Said Wilbert Musa and his wife Joan Musa, on Sunday afternoon was endorsed to run for the People’s United Party in Caribbean Shores at Lopez Mateos Park under threatening skies.
Speakers at the PUP convention were Dr. Francis Smith; attorney Bryan Neal; Yolanda Shackron, the PUP Women’s Group president; attorney Dickie Bradley; former Lake I representative Cordel Hyde; Belize Rural Central area representative Dolores Balderamos-Garcia; and former PUP leader and area representative for Orange Walk Central, John Briceño.
After Kareem Musa was sworn in by the PUP Secretary General Myrtle Palacio, he had this to say:
“Governance is not about giving people handouts; it’s about giving people the necessary tools to create a better life; it’s about creating opportunities.”
“Under the UDP, Belize is now the murder capital of our region and the third most violent country in the world”, said Musa.
The PUP leader Francis Fonseca and Fort George area representative Said Musa also addressed the convention.
