Incarcerated entertainer Buju Banton has expressed sadness at the civil unrest in sections of Kingston and St. Andrew. In an email sent to IRIE FM’s Elise Kelly from the deejay’s lawyer, Buju Banton said and I quote “I am sitting here so depressed and saddened at the state of my beloved country. My heart cries as I’m amongst strange people as tomorrow is not known; yet my faith lies in the hands of God. My pain for my fellow countrymen looms more than my own. I beg and appeal for calm. Stop this wanton killing of each other!” end of quote.Buju Banton further states that our leaders must put aside their personal ambitions and seek to lead the people out of a clear and unselfish heart. The Gargamel’s ongoing trial on drug possession was again delayed. Buju’s trial was originally scheduled for April 19 but 11 days before the trial was set to start, it was moved to June 21. And now, No reason has been given for the move of the trial to September. Buju Banton has been in lock up in Miami since December 10 last year.
