Deputy Leader of the Afrikulture Stilt Walkers, Cassandra Dewhurst, is expressing disappointment in not receiving their prize money after a whole year. In 2016, the band copped the title of Adult Band of the Year.
However, an injunction was filed by the Thunderbirds Carnival Band and Karnival Korner Karnival last year, in a bid to stop the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) from handing over prize monies to the Afrikulture Stilt Walkers, who were judged the Adult Band of the Year for Carnival 2016.
However, the injunction was lifted on March 22, 2016, when the parties met in court. Dewhurst says it is her hope that they will be able to receive their prize money at the soonest possible date.
