Governor urges new councillors to show leadership

Governor Mark Capes has called on St Helena’s new councillors to provide strong leadership and break down past distrust of the island’s government.

In what could be seen as a criticism of former councillors, he told the island’s new leaders they must take responsibility in public for the decisions they made.

The speech hinted at frustration with ineffectiveness of the previous legislative council and provided a possible clue to Governor’s Capes’s motive for dissolving it unexpectely in April 2013.
