Defending champions Saxons Superstars prepared to put on show, welcome vaccine announcement
NASSAU, BAHAMAS (Eyewitness News) — As 20,000 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines arrived in The Bahamas yesterday, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis said he looks forward to granting approval for Junkanoo groups to prepare for the end-of-year parades — mass gathering events that were canceled last year.
“The Junkanoo chaps had called me just yesterday (Tuesday) and asked me when can they start,” Minnis said following the arrival of 20,000 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines donated by the government of India.
“One of my happiest moments, other than this, will be when I can say: ‘Junkanoeers, friends, colleagues, get ready for Christmas, let’s rock n’ roll.’”
When contacted, Saxons Superstars Public Relations Director Kendenique Campbell-Moss told Eyewitness News: “Based on what the prime minister would have said today, the Saxons Superstars are guided by our chairman, Mr. Toby Austin; and whatever Mr. Austin deems necessary for us to do, we will, in fact, do.
