Bajan Shot And Robbed (from Stabroek News)

A Barbadian man was last evening shot and wounded by a group of men during a robbery at a creek on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway.

Wounded is Anderson Applewaithe of St Michael, Barbados who up to last night was a patient at the Georgetown Hospital with a wound to the right shoulder.

The man is said to have arrived in the country yesterday morning and had gone on an excursion with his Guyanese girlfriend. According to the girlfriend, Diane Nelson, the men arrived in a car and demanded money and other valuables. She said that a fight broke out and Applewaithe shouted to the men “take the money.”

he men then shot Applewaithe and drove off in their car. Nelson said that she saw Applewaithe on the road shouting after being shot and she hurriedly called the driver of the taxi that they had hired so that medical attention could be sought for her boyfriend.

According to Nelson gold rings, chains and other jewellery were taken by the bandits. She said that the man’s passport and foreign currency were also taken in the attack. Up to around 10 last night the Police were questioning the girlfriend and another female who was part of the group as to the circumstances surrounding the robbery and shooting.

    Given the name of the place where this serious incident took place…..it is not too difficult to conclude that Nelson (Diane) knows something of Apples (waithe) pie that were stolen up the …CREEK…!

    Readers, do not lose faith in…..CSM(E) !

  8. reality check

    this is what happens to a country when their is no real leadership and that suffered from the dictatorship of the tyrant Forbes Burnham.

    Guyana has never recovered despite its resource wealth. Corruption and lawlessness is the rule of the land.

    Its not too late Barbadians. Wake up!!!

    Support your police and pay them properly and clean house of your corrupt politicians from both parties. This can only be done by you the voters and a strong bloc of people who believe in and demand full transparency and accountability from all politicians regardless of the party.

    Reality check – we do not have to go back to Bajan Burnham PNC era, (parents were Bajans). Guyana is now being marketed as an “Indian” country, although it was the “Land of six Peoples”.Corruption and lawnessness is the norm especially since 1992 when the “Indians” PPP took over. They are raping the country’s wealth and taking theie money out. The opposition is weak and marginalized. Guyana has potential but one wonders if anyone will beallowed to tap it – the vested interests are getting rich with the lumber and gold and diamonds and fisheries etc. They like it the way it is with policemen and many government servants getting #350 Bdos a month.

    Barbados is blessed in many ways by having a professional police force. We see what is happening in Jamaica and Trinidad as well as Guyana re crime, drugs and guns. Barbados has to increase its police force and pay them well – or at least make their wages tax free as it is in Bermuda where they seem to be going. Crime must not be allowed to become the norm in any society.

    All that glitters is not gold
    This foolish thinking and foolish talking which says “Bajan women are not good enough and are not capable of taking good care of men,” must stop. Bajan women have always taken very good care of Bajan men. They have always be a positive driving force in assisting men in this country to acheive much. They have always taken excellent care of our homes our children, and they have loved us even when we were not loveable. What has the GT women done for us? not one thing, further, they donot care one Hell about Bajan men. Please, because a GT woman might take your shoes from off your feet when you get home after a hard days work, doesnot not means that she is God’s gift to Barbados, she is not. She is just looking after her own welfare, she has a motive, and I am very sorry Bajan men have to fine out the hard way. Brothers these GT women are not only at your home waiting to take your shoes off, but also to take your house, land and money from underneath you too Bajan men, and then you are history. Her GT boy-friend will have the last laugh all the way to the bank. It is time to be 100% Bajan in its totality

    The issue regarding Bajan women vs Guyanese(GT) women is getting hotter… Najo seems to feel it should be 100%Bajan all the way… wishful thinking in 2007.

    Anyway I have been studying this subject for some time and “interviewing” people on the “differences that they see in the two cultures. Without a doubt GT women are more “wifely” and interesting than Bajan women. This because of their culture where the man of the house is in charge and where he is respected as such. Most Bajan women do not accept this … that is why there are so many homes without a man – except maybe an old man sitting aroind.

    As for scheming women … they come from every country and culture. What about scheming men. One of the realities is that Bajan men marry outsiders… no one to check their pedigree etc… and they feel that their wives respect them. Many Bajan women do not repect men – they look and behave like men – so how do they expect men to want them. There is a shortage of “good men” everywhere in the world. Bajan women have to go elsewhsre to find a husband… but they have to understand that most men ouside of Barbados do NOT cook… so do not expect that in a husband, as I see that requirement in some of the ads online… a wanna ball….

    Barbados has too many single mothers. Too few homes without a man. Too many young men going astray and emulating negative “father figures”. Missing father figures; few male teachers -. boys underperforming at school. Girls 70% at the university… women getting most of the “big jobs”. Being a REAL man in Barbados is getting more difficult so men are looking elsewhere. Sorry that sometimes they choose the wrong type of woman… but that happens anywhere – even here.

    Ask some of the politicians, who have mostly married foreign women, why most of them did not marry Bajans?

    I beg to differ on this point. I too have talking to ppl as the phenomena of mature men in stable marriages or 30+ years suddenly leave wife children and home and go off to live with a Guyanese woman in a rented house or apt.

    I have spoken to both men and women, as near as Antigua and and far away as Queens New York. Turns out the same things are happening in those territories.

    In my opinion it has nothing to do with “wifley” qualities, but rather the human instinct to survive at all cost, whatever it takes. albeit a few cases are for love but that can be narrowed down to a close 5%. You should also carry out your analysis with Immigration Officers who have to interact with those situations and see what you come up with

    Many Bajan men are trapped because they fail to exercise self-control or self-respect. They load up the planes going to Guyana with a block of cheese cut in three pieces and one hundred US dollars, to buy sexual favours. That is why they do not see when the fish that they are served is winking its eye in the plate. I believe Essence Magazine ran an article perhaps Sept/Oct 2006 which highlighted that black men from CEO to pauper were leaving their wives behind, loading up the planes and heading to places like Brazil for a week or two to get some “wifley women” then to return home to their lives.

    I must compliment you on your erudite analysis of this subject, such breadth of knowledge – and I am not being funny – there is a lot to be learned here.

    Thanks for your input. Points well taken.
    I think that the male has a longer “shelf life” than the female. Men-o-pause sometimes means men-o-stop for many of them. That maybe is why the men have to retool and go for the younger stuff.

    It was not surprising that the condom advert with the old guy looking “to make some runs”, was so controverial. Older “married” women are threatened by such explicit examples.

    The financial issue is sometimes paramount especially in the GT situations — survival. However I still hold to my point that women from GT as well as the OECS countries seem to make excellent wives. One cannot generalize, as there are also some excellent Barbadian women. The problem is that many Barbadian men have been so brainwashed as being “na good”, that they are intimidated… that is why they look elsewhere.

    Hello Candy

    Although you may, or may not, have something valuable to say NOBODY IS GOING TO READ IT ALL WHEN YOU SHOUT.

    It is very difficult to read such a piece and nobody bothers. The eye prefers upper and lower case, with paragraphs breaking up the whole.

    If you want to shout a bit, do it for a word or two BUT NOT THE WHOLE BLOODY THING.

    Like that. See?

    Candy, you were the first woman to respond to ecoanalyst’s post.

    I purposely did not respond because I wanted the Bajan women on the blog to fix him

    Unfortunately sometimes with the numerous new Posts it is difficult to keep track.

    But I am hoping that more women will weigh in and respond to his comments.
