I have a few things bothering me. You see I am a Haji and the imam of Dundee Mosque. I was living in Canada but I came back home to continue my trade as a carpenter. Mahaicony has a couple of rum shops, and most of the owners sell alcohol to underage persons. I was in Novar when I saw a boy of about 14 with a bag.
He had one pack of cigarettes and a bottle of vodka. I asked him who sent him to buy it, and he said, “Dem boys.” I asked him where he had bought it and he gave me the name of the shop. I told him not to buy rum again because he was “too lil.”
There are another two shops doing the same thing. There is also a man name (name provided_ whose son has a barber shop on the government reserve; people hang round the shop and drink beers. I pass there every day, and as a Muslim I do not like to see people drinking alcohol on the road where people walk. There is yet a liquor restaurant in Dundee; people drink there from morning till night and some of them are under age.
People need to see see what is happening in Mahaicony. I found out from Customs about some trucks selling rum on the road. I was told they can only do deliveries and not sell on the streets. Customs should send some people to charge them and take away their licences.
