Former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith

Start focusing on what the Prime Minister meant and not how he made his comments.

This is the sentiment of Former Minister of National Security Gary Griffith.

Recently Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley came under fire for comments he made with during his conversations with the public on Monday night.

Speaking during the first in a series national conversations Dr Keith Rowley and other Cabinet members at Maloney/Arouca amphitheater, Dr Rowley said women should choose their partners more wisely.

His comments came after the shocking murder of Jamilia DeRevenaux on Sunday night at MovieTowne, Port of Spain, which was alleged to be the result of a domestic dispute.

Dr Rowley acknowledged that approximately one-third of the murders committed in January were domestic-related issues and implied women shared the blame in their choice of partners.

Speaking in a televised interview this morning Mr. Griffith said an apology was issued, and people should focus on the matter of people being killed.
