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.
Rawlins served as the Cepep Southern Regional Coordinator and was suspended with immediate effect earlier today after a video was shared on social media of Rawlins driving a Cepep pick-up and cursing another driver.
Minister of Rural Development and Local Government Haji Kazim Hosein has applauded the efforts of the Community Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement and Enhancement Programme (CEPEP), for their prompt response to citizens who have been severely affected following the adverse weather conditions and subsequent flooding.
The informer who supplied former People’s Partnership minister Devant Maharaj with a voice recording which allegedly features a conversation between Minister of Rural Development and Local Government Kazim Hosein and colleague La Brea MP Nicole Ollivierre, over the award of Community-Based Environmental Protection and Enhancement Programme (Cepep) contracts, has gone into hiding after allegedly being threatened for leaking the clip.
