This is the independence message from the Opposition Leader Don Polye on the country’s 41st independence anniversary.
He said this day, 41 years ago, our founding fathers charted a new destiny for this nation.
No other country parallels this achievement.
“Let us now learn from the past, analyse the present, and decide for the future. We must demonstrate that we are capable of managing our own affairs.
“It’s time now to take stock of how we as a nation have come this far and plan for the next 41 years.
