Prime Minister Allen Chastanet was booed on Saturday Evening at the 2016 Blackheart/SLFA Football tournament. In the final match of the quarter final round between Micoud and Vieux-Fort South, the parliamentary representative for Micoud South was not given a favourable welcome by fans at the Phillip Marcellin grounds.
Honorable Allen Chastanet, who is said to be frequently out of St. Lucia is search of foreign investment, was making his first appearance at the tournament this year. Organizers of the annual event invited him and his delegation to the customary greetings and introduction of the teams before the game began.
Accompanying the Prime Minister was Minister for Sports and Parliamentary Representative for Dennery South Edmund Estephane. While the players and referees all followed protocol and granted the courtesy to the Prime Minister, some fans at the grounds were not so gracious!
