“It would be a disaster.”
That’s the declaration from Evrol ‘Blackie’ Christian, one of the players in the food and entertainment industry as fears of a renewed closure heighten as authorities cite non-compliance of COVID-19 protocols to prevent the spread of the disease.
Christian is the proprietor and face of Little Ochie, one of several entities publicly flagged by a tough-talking Desmond McKenzie, the minister of local government and community development.
McKenzie has called an emergency meeting of stakeholders in the entertainment sector for Wednesday at the ministry to discuss breaches of COVID-19 protocols governing events and other gatherings. He said that surveys show that more than 700 events have been staged without permits.
