Alleyne, who is president of the Trinidad and Tobago Crime Watch Association, is a well known PNM activist. He was screened at Balisier House last Saturday by the PNM screening committee, which is chaired by Prime Minister Patrick Manning. He was among four persons screened for the constituency.
Manning on Monday called on the public to forgive Danah, for her raunchy dance with rapper, Akon. The PM instead trained his guns on the owners of Zen, saying that they had a responsibility in the first instance.
Manning said Danah, whose photographs are not only at Zen, but at other locations circulated on the Internet – was “misled” and “had lost control of the situation.”
Alleyne, who faced the Prime Minister in screening session only one week ago, expressed “surprise” , “relief” and “gratitude” that Manning had come to his sister’s defence.
