She added, “Events over the past few years have burdened me and as much as I tried to have resolution  and clarity  to certain  matters, I was met with arrogance and downright disrespect from the political directorate.”

She explained, “As a Former Deputy Political  Leader of the PNM, a Former  Senator, a Former Chairman of the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation and a Former Senior Legal  Advisor to the Prime Minister and as a child of the PNM, the time has come for me to come out of Banwas and to continue to stand up for justice, fairness, equity and equality in our Sweet Trinidad and Tobago.”

“I wish to state publicly that since 2018, I have felt as though I was forced into exile as a form of punishment for being outspoken about injustices I witnessed firsthand in my community and country and after two  years  with no one in leadership positions seeing it fit to investigate, far less repair the damage done to persons, families and communities, I have  reached a crossroad where I have decided to resign from the People’s National Movement,” she said.

Mohammed lamented, “I no longer feel that I belong to this once great  movement that my uncle, my parents and so many of my blood relatives had helped to build even before 1956.”

She said, “This country does not deserve a bullying Prime Minister, an arrogant Attorney General and an incompetent Minister of National Security.”

She said, “I pray that all citizens will be able to go out in their numbers on August 10th 2020 and exercise their franchise freely and free from fear so that we can all come together with all hands on deck to rebuild, restore and reconstruct our broken nation. Let us unite for a better Trinidad and Tobago.”
