JAMAICA NEWS, FEBRUARY 18, 2018 – Mobay Mayor warns Funeral Goers:
St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – A funeral service in Cambridge, St James for the late family members of St James wanted gangster Ryan’Ratty’ Peterkin, leader of the Ratty Gang, turned into a preaching fiasco, with Montego Bay’s Mayor, Homer Davis, who was in attendance calling for the funeral goers to REPENT, there, right now!
Mobay Mayor warns Funeral Goers: Montego Bay’s Mayor Homer Davis who is also the Councillor for the Cambridge Division made an altar-type call for repentance at the funeral service of two of his constituents. Pastor Glen Samuels, president of the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, known for his non-apology preaching style, presided over the funeral and was in full support of the mayor’s call.
Mayor Davis as the Jamaica Labour Party caretaker for South St James – attended the funeral in the crime struck district of Retrieve, St James. He reportedly told the residents at the funeral to repent of their evil deeds, “I think the people of Retrieve should seek repentance here today. You should all get down on your knees and ask the pastor to pray for you,” said Mayor Davis.
The funeral service was held for Ann-Marie Johnson, 44, and her 24-year-old daughter, Shantoy McKenzie. The two, who are related to St James reputed gangster Ryan ‘Ratty’ Peterkin were mowed down by gunfire on November 17, 2017.
Mobay Mayor warns Funeral Goers: Davis compared his call for repentance to that of the people of Nineveh in the Bible who were given 40 days to repent, by the prophet Johah.
“Today, a similar call for repentance is being made to those who sit by the roadside and make the phone calls when the police are passing Cambridge. Your day will be coming soon, and those in the community who send the food, some that wash the clothes, some that even hide their guns, your day will be coming soon,” Davis warned. “You are all seeing everything that is happening and continue to remain blind … understand that by doing that, your day will be coming too.”
Pastor Glen Samuels, president of the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, pastor of the service was at the funeral on the same mission as Davis, charging the funeral crowd during his sermon, “the curse of Almighty God rests on every unrepentant murderer!”
“I challenge you that if you are here as a perpetrator of violence, there is mercy with God if you will repent and turn from your wicked ways.” preached the animated Pastor Samuels.
“I must challenge the Cambridge community, Retrieve community, and every community in western Jamaica that is beset by violence, we must be bold enough to say what we know to seek the truth and to stand up in being our brother’s keeper.” the pastor commanded.
