Bits: ROVING ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL
Over the last year, Robert Lalah has been traveling
the island of Jamaica and presenting some interesting
stories. This week we highlight the most popular
stories and the others that made the top five
list. The number one story. Duppy woman of
duppy woman ran straight at me with her hands
in the air! I thought to myself, all right, this
is it, the duppy inside her is about to jump into
me and I'll have to spend the rest of my life
being called the duppy man. But just as I braced
myself for the impact, someone whispered in my
ear, "She come to shake your hand."
A tad red in the face, I managed a smile, but
must admit that I was still a bit nervous as I
shook her hand. I mean, it's not every day I meet
a duppy woman. A few witches, maybe, but never
a real life duppy woman.

: National Road Safety Council in Jamaica
National Road Safety Council in Jamaica was established
in 1993 as a non- profit organization by public
and private sector interest groups. Their mandate
is twofold, to develop and implement road safety
promotional activities and conduct public education
programme and two to act as a lobby group for
the promotion of road safety.
In fulfillment of their mandate, the National
Road Safety Council launched their web site earlier
this year. The website is developed, hosted, maintained
and by Go-Jamaica.
