Prior to the commencement of the Council of Ministers (RvM), vice president Ronnie Brunswijk made the announcement that Minister Albert Jubithana of Transport, Communication, and Tourism (TCT) will step down as of August 1. The minister has stated his desire to leave for private reasons. According to Brunswijk, the president has now received a letter and will take new action on August 1.
Contradictions between the vice president and the minister are untrue. According to Brunswijk, there is no stress at all; otherwise, he would have driven the man away by himself. According to Brunwijk, if a minister does not handle matters properly, he will be called to account, but that has nothing to do with enmity.
Humphrey Dundas, Director of Public Communication, indicated that the Minister of TCT will soon give a press conference about his decision. “It is not the case that it would concern the incidents in Para. It’s personal reasons.”
