Tivoli Gardens Residents in an Uproar
The residents are upset about the way Kingston's Mayor, Desmond McKenzie praised the Security Force Police for the way they handled the uprising on the 13th (Sunday). This was the result of the men who fatally shot five men, police office and soldier (who was injured).
