ATTORNEY GENERAL Glenda Morean lashed out at corrupt politicians when she addressed St Augustine Rotarians on Saturday night.
“Many view politics as a dirty word. They view politicians as greedy, deceptive, selfish human beings who come forward to serve not the people who elected or selected them but to serve their own interest. This is not a necessarily true position,” Morean said.
“But some politicians have attracted this position by virtue of their blatant display of dishonesty, lack of transparency and integrity. Politics is about service to country and people.”
Addressing the handing over ceremony of the St Augustine Rotary Club, at the Hugh Wooding Law School, Morean said the motto of the rotary club—“Sow The Seeds of Love”—was timely.
“In the environment in which the country now finds itself where divisive elements are seeking to promote racial tension and civil unrest among our peaceful tolerant citizens, this motto is not just relevant, it is also timely and must be the motive that propels the activities of all the other caring organisations in our society,” she said.
Morean said politics was not the avenue to get rich.
Sirdar Greaves was installed as the new president of the St Augustine club, taking over from former health minister Emannuel Hosein.
