St Vincent and the Grenadines will soon have a new Consul General to the US.
Howie Prince will be replaced by popular soca artiste Rodney “Luta” McIntosh who has no apparent diplomatic or civil service experience.
Mr Prince; who confirmed that the government recalled his appointment, will go on retirement on July 31, 2022.
There however, have been grumblings in some quarters for some time, in the Vincentian community in New York about Prince’s performance as Consul General.
Regarding the appointment of McIntosh as Prince’s successor, some in the Vincentian community in New York are already voicing objection over his qualification.
