Kamla responds to Marlenegate: ‘I know when to say nothing’

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar said while people are anxious to hear her speak on “Marlenegate” as an attorney she knows best when to keep her mouth shut.

However, she declared that personal insults and false accusations from political opponents are nothing new to her as she used Michelle Obama’s words to say “When they go low – we go high!”

“I’m not going to go into Marlenegate, I think there are a lot of people who are anxious for me to talk about Marlenegate, all I would say about Marlenegate is this, the matter is sub judice,” she said adding that as a lawyer she knows when she should and should not speak.

The former Prime Minister spared to words in criticising the Keith Rowley led Government as she accused them of using “fake news” to distract from pressing issues in this country such as the “scandal” surrounding the multi million dollar housing contract with China Gezhouba Group International Engineering Co Ltd (CGGC) and the Housing Development Corporation (HDC).
