DNA stages protest downtown Nassau

NASSAU BAHAMAS — Several members and supporters of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) staged a protest in Rawson Square yesterday, calling on Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis to “ring the bell” for the next general election.

The group marched down Bay Street into Parliament Square chanting “Minnis got to go” and “ring the bell”.

However, as they began to gather, several officers moved to usher them from in front of the House of Assembly and behind the barricades in Rawson Square.

DNA Leader Arinthia Komolafe told members of the media: “For almost 365 days, we’ve been under emergency orders and the poor decisions by the prime minister has cost jobs, it has cost lives, it has cost livelihoods and we are calling on the prime minister to free us from this misery, to free the Bahamian people from hell and to ring the bell.”
