Accuses political opponents of name tarnishing
BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - THE People’s Labour Party’s (PLP) candidate for Constituency Five, Stachio Williams, has debunked the claim that he had injured an individual during an altercation in that district while he was out campaigning.
A male’s voice in a voice note making rounds in the Federation could be heard claiming that a man had threatened to “drop kick” Williams. But in the process of executing the threat, Williams caught one of his legs and the man fell awkwardly to the ground and was rushed to the hospital.
On being aware of the contents of the voice note, Williams had decided to clear the air on the allegation, which he described in a video on his social media page as being “false”
“I have been made aware that there is a video and voice-note circulating which alleges that I was involved in an altercation. I wish to state that it is absolutely not true,” Williams noted.
He disclosed that most of his time on that day in question was spent at his Constituency Office and within the district meeting with residents and farmers.
The first-time caniate will be going up against strong opposition from the incumbent in a district that the majority of constituents had not voted for any other candidate than that of the People’s Action Movement, over the last four elections
Williams provided assurance that he would not be distracted “and I remain committed to working to secure the future for you by growing our local economy, by protecting you and by creating more jobs”.
“I am very disappointed that my political opponents would stoop so low to try and tarnish my name. These silly games must stop,” he lamented.
The businessman will go up against Shawn Richards, who is favoured to win, and the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party’s Kenny Douglas.
Currently, citizens and residents of the Federation are awaiting the official date for the General Elections.
