Jamaica has had more then its share of chaos already this week as Monday morning began with rumors that Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, was headed towards resignation (follow Jamaica Observer or Gleaner for the backstory if you missed this mega-moment.) If that wasn’t jolting enough, later that evening in a public address Golding asked for “forgiveness” and confirmed that the extradition request for Tivoli Gardens’ don, Christopher “Dudus” Coke, would be signed by Justice Minister Dorothy Lightbourne. Later that evening, Coke’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson pleaded on Nationwide News that the innocent people of West Kingston be spared from unnecessary violence. Today, the Jamaican Observer photo-documented the blockading that has taken place at all crossroads leading to Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town since news spread that the extradition papers were to be signed this afternoon. In the spirit of the craziness that is taking place here in Jamaica, I thought the Word A Prayer Riddim might be an appropriate way to leave this topic open ended.
