Rowley meets,Pollard and Dinas at Cabinet retreat

The Prime Minister,Keith Rowley, convened a meeting with Kieron Pollard, the captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders, and Dinanath Ramnarine, a former leg-spinner for the West Indies, during a luncheon held at The Crews Inn Hotel in Chaguaramas today.

The Prime Minister expressed his ongoing involvement with various cricket stakeholders in his role as Chairman of the CARICOM Prime Ministerial Sub-Committee on Cricket, through a post on his Facebook page.

Rowley ought to possess a comprehensive understanding of failures, given his extensive eight-year tenure in spearheading T&T towards its current condition.

T&T priorities are Murders, rape, kidnapping, home invasions, Crisis in Oil & Gas decline of 40%. Forex Reserve Crisis, Infrastructure, Petrotrin, Plant Closures but Rowley is looking at cricket...sigh

Prime Minister Patrick Manning launched a scathing attack on Diego Martin West MP Dr Keith Rowley in Parliament Wednesday, saying when Rowley faces opposition he behaves like a "raging bull".
In his response to Rowley Manning said he had to "suffer" from his cabinet colleague's bullying for 12 years, going back to the time Rowley ran against him for the leadership of the PNM.

"The minute you oppose my good friend, he gets very, very angry. And if you oppose him strongly, he becomes a raging bull...You don't know the trouble I have seen. I have had to live with that for 12 years," Manning said.

The prime minister said he had enough of it and fired Rowley last year for that kind of behaviour. That decision, he said, also served as a lesson to the new cabinet members.It was former prime minister Patrick Manning who in 2007 first dubbed Rowley a “raging bull” and “wajang” after firing him as Trade Minister.

Originated in Trinidad and Tobago. Refers to someone who displays bad behavior.

When the Minister of Housing, Keith Rowley, who was known for being rowdy, was fired, the Prime Minister, Patrick Manning, said it was because he was accused of being a wajang.
