The New Today


Spiritual wickedness in high places

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell impressed upon the female head of state to get rid of Benoit who was resisting efforts to link the Electoral office with a communications system run from the office of the Prime Minister.

This is what I read in an article which stated, Embarrassment facing the GG Dame Cecile La Grenade, in connection with an article about a court case involving the sacked Supervisor of elections, Judy Benoit.

The article continues: “Benoit’s dismissal as Supervisor of Elections came against the backdrop of claims that she refused to implement a directive from Lana Mc Phail, the then Permanent Secretary in the office of the Prime Minister which she felt would have compromised the integrity of the Electoral system “.

Today after 8 years of Justice denied it looks like Ms. Benoit is about to be vindicated, receive some token, semblance of compensation.

The question is – was the Electoral system compromised back then? Is it still compromised – logged into the Prime Minister’s office?

If it is, this whole nation has failed Ms. Benoit. We have failed our children and future generations to come. Where are the churches, civil society, NGOs, Media, Trade unions, the ordinary decent man and woman on the street?

What are the implications of such national negligence? Does anyone have good reasons to trust the Grenada Electoral system? Or is it too late to arise from our shame, apathy and slumber and rescue this nation?

The Bible says in Eph. 6:11-12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers and spiritual wickedness in high places.
