Tensions were high in Accompong Town as Chief Currie turned off sound system and armed Jamaican police were called in.
Currie took to the microphone at a party being held in the town, shouting to maroons that there was an election and that Accompong is a town of order. Accompong’s town, now Currie’s town, has been one of the most orderly and peaceful town in the western hemisphere.
At the root of the matter, it appears that several maroons are disgruntled with Currie’s style of governance. Several parties(sessions) have been held in the town since Currie became chief, however, some party promoters are claiming Currie is biased. Several parties were allowed to play all night, but others have not been given the same privilege.
Other than this latest confrontation, there are underlying issues that if not dealt with will eventually cause a rebellion.
Just to be clear, Accompong News support order, support fairness, support accountability and support transparency.
