How foolish!

Share post:

Men’s Educational Support Association (MESA) chairman Ralph Boyce has hit back, accusing?Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite of behaving “fundamentally foolish” in rejecting a call for  all children in Barbados to undergo DNA testing  at birth.
Breaking his silence on the minister’s criticisms, Boyce said yesterday that “no politician with  a temporary lease” on authority should behave  the way Brathwaite did.
Boyce also found it ironical that Brathwaite had rejected his DNA testing idea as lacking substance when “his own Government” had awarded the former Chief Education Officer a Gold Crown  Of Merit for outstanding community work.
Brathwaite, who is also Minister of Home Affairs, had said during a recent meeting of an all-female Soroptimist Club that he was insulted by suggestions from “some character” that children should face DNA testing and that he felt compelled to issue an apology to women.
