Bush fires back at Sports Minister over CIAA Presidency

West Bay MLA and former Cayman Islands Athletics Association President Bernie Bush Friday (21 October) fires back at Sports Minister Hon. Osbourne Bodden one day after the Minister questioned Mr. Bush’s intentions to run for President of the CIAA and accused him of interfering with the Association’s business.

The barbs exchanged come on the heels of a Grand Court order preventing the CIAA from holding elections. Mr. Bush says his plans to run for Association President are legitimate.

“Legitimate members of the Association and real track people have asked me come back and help rebuild or straighten the Association out.

“His statement that as a sitting member of the Legislative Assembly, he sees that as an interference in an association. What the international governing bodies see as interference is what he possibly did by asking the former President to resign over the Ronald Forbes fiasco. Is when the Government dictates who an association must select. Those are cases of interference.”

Mr. Bodden denies that he asked former CIAA President Dr. Dalton Watler to resign.

Mr. Bush says he plans to make more comments on the CIAA matter next week.
