“We have to start cleaning up this place. From today or tomorrow, we are going to start cleaning it up because I have already told Member of Parliament, Mr. Jermaine Figuiera that we will rebuild it bigger and better than how it was. This is an important community for us and the President was here himself, I was here to hand over equipment and sports gear some time ago so I know what has been lost. The Police and Fire will do their investigations but irrespective of what the outcome is, we have to move on, so I am going to make a commitment to ensure that some of the requirements for rebuilding, that we can start getting it from next week. Don’t be sad and down, we are going to rebuild,” Harmon told the residents…..
