The Department of Culture in the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture has received official correspondence from the Chief Executive Officer of Spicemas Corporation (SMC) Kelvin Jacob who has opted out of a contract renewal at this time.
He will officially depart the Corporation effective 10 March 2023.
During his 4 years with the SMC, Jacob built upon the past successes of the organisation and worked diligently with his team to improve the day–to–day operations of the SMC.
Minister with responsibility for Youth, Sports and Culture Hon. Ron Redhead said, “I want to thank Jacob for his invaluable contributions to the SMC as CEO and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
Jacob joined the Corporation in February 2019 on secondment from the Ministry of Education and therefore will return to his substantive position with the Ministry of Education.
Carnival 2022 was a disorganised mess. Nothing ran on time or properly. Behind the scene favouritism. Nothing but drunks and people urinating everywhere in public. Disgusting. Who is making the money off this event?. The disgusting, sexual commands made by men on the trucks for women are degrading and unnecessary. They need to stop. Just a huge disappointment.
Giving up Carnival Sunday night to a private organization, is not something that should be taken lightly. I hope the government established some kind of investigation before he is back to his original job.
