Virtual Independence Programme Airs On Tv Tonight

A four-hour, made-for-television, virtual Independence programme will air live from the studios of ZNS in New Providence and the Northern Bahamas tonight beginning at 8pm.

The Bahamas will observe 47 years of Independence under the theme “Pressing Onward: A Time of Hope, Triumph, and Transformation.”

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and measures still in effect, there will be no celebratory events that involve large gatherings.

Opening with prayer by the Bahamas Christian Council, the gala will be the first live virtual national independence celebration in the region.

It will feature audience participation so that we hear from Bahamians all over the world. There will be messages from the Governor General, the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, and other officials. Expect powerful performances, both secular and ecumenical and comedy skits from social media stars who emerged during the pandemic. Hosts will be Jimenita Swain, Dion Johnson, Chigozie Ijeoma, Hope Shelly-Ann, Dyson and Wendi Knight, Melissa Knowles, Desmond Saunders and Bodine Johnson. Other local stations will also carry it live.

Flag Raising will begin just before midnight.

When I think of what a broken down, depressed country we are compared to where we could have been with a little leadership, it makes me want to have a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon or maybe two!

Independence! lol what a laugh!

Independent from what?

The thing we have as a result of independence is the ability to pick the leader, the leader is still taking orders from the real powers that be in this world.

The establishment, which people and organizations make it up might be debatable, but central banks, the imf, the world bank, the USA, the eu, the UN, etc etc etc have more say and control over the survival of our nation that you can imagine.

Our “leaders” simply do as they’re told, lest we want our whole country and economy to be shut out from the rest of the world, and our people starve.

Here’s how it works , our crooked ruling class throws out a couple of “potential leaders”, you vote to pick the criminal who will rob the nation blind, while also forcing the will of the real world ruling class on our nation.
