Now is the time to get back to our true cultural identity and start recognizing ourselves as, “Waitukubuli” as the first step in finding ourselvesin the current Socio-economic & socio-cultural environment
Now is the time to get back to our true cultural identity and start recognizing ourselves as “Waitukubuli”, as the first step in finding ourselves.
That’s according to Environmental Activist Ms Farah Theodore. She spoke to Q95 journalists on the current Socio-economic & socio-cultural environment and disposition and expressed the view that what is needed now is a concerted effort to get back to where we were 30 years ago.
She contends that this notion of “getting back to where we were” creates the imagery of us moving backwards rather than forward, buta reasonable first step would be to reassess our sense of self-Identity.
The need to change our lifestyles, adapting our economy, and creating a sort of local people empowerment movement in our societies is one that needs to be implemented, says Theodore.

CCM member John Blanchard questions the convenience of 3 months residency requirement in the newly launched Entrepreneur Visa CBI program, which coincides with Dominica’s voting requirements
The DLP Government in Dominica continues efforts to promote its CBI program, withannouncements of adjustments and creation of various CBI programs, in order to boost its revenue.For the Past 15 years, the Skerrit-led DLPAdministration has been heavily reliant on its CBI program to generate revenue into Dominica – while sidelining many of the country’s economic pillars.
On September 7, 2020, Roseau-based Advance Global Partners announced its partnership with the government of Dominica, to implement a new Entrepreneur Visa program, under which those who invest from US$50,000 and spend three months a year in the country would qualify for naturalization in two years.In this vein, CCM Executive Member John Blanchard, is expressing concern over the convenience of residency requirement, as this coincides with the voting residency requirements for voting in Dominica.Blanchard questions, “Is this a systematic tactic to sway elections in Dominica?”
John Blanchard also exposes how some of these Visa applicants successfully beat the system, by the receipt of monthly receipts for utility bills and rental of property. As a result, such individuals can easily present these receipts to the registrar during election time, which automatically make this foreign national eligible to vote as a citizen, through this CBI program.
