Ambassador Daaga| Caricom Cultural Ambassador Extraordinaire


Two days after naming her Cabinet, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar yesterday appointed National Joint Action Committee Chief Servant Makandal Daaga this country’s Caricom Cultural Ambassador Extraordinaire.
Persad-Bissessar made the announcement during her speech at the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha’s (SDMS) Indian Arrival Day celebrations at the Parvati Girls’ College in Debe yesterday. In making the appointment, Persad-Bissessar described Daaga as a ’selfless patriot’.
'Chief Servant Daaga has spent decades working without recognition and help in the cause of promoting the ideals of poverty eradication and giving people, especially young people, a sense of purpose through sports and culture. He is a selfless patriot whose service we are so fortunate to still have among us today and, today, on Indian Arrival Day we salute him and his life’s work,’ Persad-Bissessar said. She named Daaga as one of the ’original freedom fighters of the nation’.

I was awaiting the announce regarding Mr. Daaga's participation in the People's Partnership and now that it was made I am wondering about its significance. I thought that Mr. Daaga would have been utilized at home but he was not supported by the Laventille community during the general elections. As a matter of fact I can't believe that the people of  Laventille voted in favor of the PNM representative in the manner they did - it was not even close. Well the chief servant will now embark on ensuring that Trinidad and Tobago is seen as a partner in regional integration and play a significant role in bringing success to the entire region in all areas of endeavor. I wish Mr. Daaga well in his new position and I am absolutely certain that he would server the nation well - good luck sir!
