She however acknowledged that where major challenges along the way, including the spike in gun-related violence.

“Guns poured into Barbados over the past five years and we now have a problem of gun crime not previously seen. Barbadians are naturally wary.

“It is a scourge we will not ignore or tolerate and we have already begun taking steps to counter. We must and we will do all in our power to save or young people,” she stressed.
