The Democratic National Alliance (DNA)  has expressed concerns following news of Sunday’s homicide at Government House.

In a press statement, Deputy Leader Buscheme Armbrister said, “Government House is the official residence of the Head of our nation – the Governor General of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. This historical and monumental property should enjoy the highest level of security in the land. It is therefore troubling that this hallowed property became

a crime scene.”

He added, “this incident brings back painful memories for several Bahamians who have felt the negative effects of the crime epidemic within our country. Many Bahamians still recall the senseless killing of the aide to the Governor General some months ago and are beginning to question the quality of the safety measures surrounding the head of our Commonwealth.”

To this, he said that it is not difficult to understand why Bahamians would be concerned about their own safety following this incident. 

With this in mind, he said; “The government must move with haste to allay the fears of the populace and restore the confidence of the people in our crime fighting initiatives.

“It is imperative that in addition to fighting the menace of crime, more focus is placed on and resources are allocated to ensure that individuals with mental health challenges receive the requisite attention. This issue must be considered from several perspectives, including within the context of the enormous stress under which Bahamians are living today,” said Armbrister.
