During the sixth weekly installment of Leadership Matters tonight, Tuesday, April 28th, 2020, Deputy Prime Minister the Honourable Shawn Richards, who is also the Education Minister, is expected to announce further support for students – in particular for those who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.  Be sure to tune in to hear what he has to say.

Tonight’s Leadership Matters will be headlined by Prime Minister Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, the Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Public Infrastructure et al., the Honourable Ian Patches Liburd.

A matter that is sure to come up is yesterday’s announcement that the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis will be repatriating 53 of the Federation’s students studying in Jamaica who have had difficulty getting home due to border closings as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

This Thursday, April 30th, the students will be brought back to the Federation on a charter flight organized by the Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs.  They will be subject to quarantine for at least 14 days upon their return, as is the policy of St. Kitts and Nevis.

The wildly popular Leadership Matters virtual forum series, which is hosted by the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis, airs live on ZIZ TV (Channel 5 or https://zizonline.com/tv/channel-5/) every Tuesday night from 8:00pm to 10:00pm.
