Dominican left for dead in Antigua still fears for his life

Published

on


One month after he was severely beaten and left for dead, Jahhym Azoo says he is afraid of walking the streets in Antigua and Barbuda.

Azoo who is Dominican is recovering at home but he tells Dominicanewsonline that he is afraid that those who attacked him would do it again.

He said he is aware that only two boys were charged and they have been released and are at large.

Azoo said he would rather return to his homeland where he will be more at peace.

Meantime his family has set up a go fund me page to assist in his medical bills which now stands at a whopping $70 thousand dollars.

When Azoo was admitted to the Mount St Johns Medical Center in St Johns he had severe bleeding to his brain coupled with a broken nose and jaw. The entire bottom row of his teeth was also knocked out.

Doctors had given him a fifty percent chance of survival.

Police insists that two young boys did the atrocious act but the victim maintains it was five.

DEAR BELLA: I paid for everything, now can’t get over this girl

Dear Bella

Bella

 

I need your advice on how to get over this girl that I somehow can’t get over even if I know for a fact that she is bad for my health.

We met during a popular annual event last year and we hit it off very well. She introduced me to her mother and she was very nice to me.

I am not really handsome but I figure if I spend heavily on a woman-especially those in Dominica- then you are in for a long time.

Bella I would buy her mother lunch, dinner, take them out and all. And her mother loved that. I bought clothes, shoes, hair and even ham and turkey Christmas gone. Cellphone costing $900 even.

And even if she is just 16, her mother didn’t mind because I was helping them out.

I thought at first her mom would say I was too old because I am 33. But she didn’t mind at all.

But all of a sudden, the relationship got cold. Her mom wouldn’t send her at my house again and even the mother cold with me.

I distanced myself and then last week she told me she wanted to end the relationship.

Next thing I heard she have a new boyfriend and the mother always up and down on his ride.

I guess she didn’t remember when I use to walk all the way Morne Bruce to bring food for her.

I miss her and I know I shouldn’t because I feel that they were using me.

So, I am asking if you could help me get over her. Like not to think of her again or even remember the way she hurt me.

Hello Walker

I don’t know if you expected anything serious to derive from a relationship with a 17-year-old.

And you could be right in your thinking that you were used.

Sometimes things happen to allow us to realize our mistakes and to save us from the catastrophe that we create for ourselves.

Condition your mind and tell yourself the story ended the best way.

Find someone more mature if you really want a serious relationship. You should never try to buy love using material things.

Furthermore, a mother “selling out”, her 16-year-old girl for monetary gains is clearly a red flag. It appears that this is a pattern.

Moving forward learn that money cannot buy you love irrespective of how society may put it.

Carnival Queen contestant Savahnn James of Roseau says she will use her platform “Sustainable Living Through Renewable Energy” to push for Dominica to become self-sufficient where energy is concerned.

James was officially launched over the weekend.

She said she selected her platform because of her passion for taking care of the environment.

“I believe that we are stewards of the Earth and it is our responsibility to preserve it. We see the effects of climate change here in Dominica and we have the resources to combat these changes and safeguard ourselves,” she explained.

James said using renewable energy is one-way Dominica can become self-sufficient and contribute to the preservation of the environment.

The beauty queen also intends to further her studies by perusing a degree in Environmental Engineering.

“This isn’t just a platform for me but a lifestyle. I plan to further my studies in environmental engineering and I will continue to push my platform after the show,” she said.

James also hopes to start a conversation on the implementation on renewable energy in Dominica.

Meantime Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau South constituency Chekira Lockhart-Hypolite called on businesses to support the Queen show and to provide sponsorship to contestants.

Hypolite was filling in for Melissa Poppone Skerrit-the MP for Roseau Central.

“I am asking business places to support the national queen show, there are young ladies who do not have any sponsorship,” she said.

She said carnival is a tourism product and it must be looked at it in a wholistic manner.

“The greatest beneficiaries in my mind is the business community so I am asking on behalf of DDA and DFC if there are any private businesses, there are queen contestants who are looking for support…” she said.

Hypolite further explained that a show of this magnitude needs financial backing and support.

She also called on businesses in the Roseau South constituency to come on board and support the Queen show.
