JAMAICA – Mayor of Kingston Angela Brown-Burke said the city is now in a state of readiness for tomorrow’s arrival of United States President Barack Obama.
The authorities have been carrying out road patching and other clean up activities in the Corporate Area.
Brown-Burke explained that most of the work was in the pipeline ahead of the visit by the American leader.
The clean-up has however triggered anger among some street vendors after their stalls were destroyed.
A team from the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation yesterday removed their stalls but Brown-Burke said the removal was temporary.
President Obama is scheduled to lay a wreath at National Heroes Park on Thursday.
