Chastanet Responds to Frederick’s Allegation of Racism


(Loop St Lucia) Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has fired back at his former colleague Richard Fredrick, who accused the Saint Lucian Prime Minister of being racist.

Frederick made the statement to the media Friday, following his registration to contest Castries Central as an independent candidate at the July 26 general election: “I had seen the track record of this man, he’s a spendthrift, he does not care, he does not like people of our colour and I make no bones about that.
