(CMR) The Hon. Kenneth Bryan, MP Minister of Tourism & Transport has issued an apology days after his behavior was called into disrepute by the Leader of the Opposition. He admitted that “In relation to the video, I got this wrong and apologize unreservedly”.
His apology in full is:
I would like to address recent comments in relation to a video that I did with my wife when flyers were being distributed in a part of my constituency on her behalf.
Since assuming the government, the PACT Administration has gone to great lengths to demonstrate to the public that we operate on a platform of transparency and accountability. Our introduction of the first ever Ministerial Code of Conduct within our first 100 days in office is but one example of our commitment to this objective.
As a member of this administration, I take very seriously my responsibilities to the people of the Cayman Islands, whom I have sworn to serve to the best of my ability. I am proud to be the Minister for Tourism and Transport and I am equally proud to be a husband and father that cares for my family and strives to support their dreams and aspirations.
In relation to the video, I got this wrong and apologise unreservedly to my constituents, the people of the Cayman Islands, the Governor, the Premier and my other colleagues in the PACT Administration.
I would like to reassure everyone that I fully support the Code of Conduct and the principles of good governance it was designed to enhance.
Going forward, I will redouble my efforts to ensure that my actions are in keeping with the highest ethical standards of the office I am humbled to hold on behalf of the people of the Cayman Islands.
