Eye On Issues: Making sense of the mini-reshuffle by GHK Lall

I think that President Granger had no choice in the matter of the former Minister of Health.  He gave it time, and resisted serious pressure to jettison the embattled minister.  It is why I commend him for taking the action he did recently.  Now for some more details as to how I read these developments.
