In a speech at the labour march in Port of Spain Ancel Roget warned Opposition Leader Keith Rowley to beware of traitors although he did not name anyone.
Rowley and members of the PNM, including Port of Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing and deputy Mayor Keron Valentine marched with the group but did not stay for the speeches. Rowley marched with the union members and was seated on the stage when Roget made the remarks.
“There are traitors in the camp. There are traitors right there at City Hall in Port of Spain.They did everything to scuttle this rally here this evening, I must tell you that. They tried their damnedest to ensure that this rally did not come off,” Roget said.
He added, "You only have to look right below the very top and you will find out who that person is. We are not afraid to call a spade a spade, regardless of who is holding the handle."
