Weston Rawlins, known by his calypso sobriquet Cro Cro, is back on the job as a regional coordinator with CEPEP after being given a stern warning about his conduct.
It comes weeks after a highly-publicised incident which saw the CEPEP employee and entertainer being recorded driving a company vehicle and using obscene language.
Four-time Calypso Monarch, Cro Cro has made good on his promise to a release a song about an incident where he was recorded reportedly using obscene language towards a driver.
Two weeks ago, a video emerged of the veteran calypsonian, real name Weston Rawlins, arguing with another motorist. It was claimed that he was caught using his cell phone while driving. CEPEP, where Rawlins works as a Regional Coordinator suspended him and revoked the use of their company van, pending the outcome of an investigation.
An investigation into the conduct of CEPEP regional coordinator Weston “Cro Cro” Rawlins is expected to be completed this week and a decision by management will be forwarded to the board of directors for deliberation.
In a media conference at CEPEP’s head office in Ste Madeleine on Tuesday, chairman Ashton Ford said that Rawlins remains on suspension but continues to collect his $10,000 monthly salary.
Calypsonian Weston Rawlins, better known as Cro Cro, has been suspended from the State-run Community-Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement Programme (Cepep) after an obscene outburst while driving a company vehicle.
