Lowenfield told reporters yesterday that there have been instances where persons have let loose dogs on enumerators and told GECOM staff that they will not be paid.  “We continue to have challenges in operationalising the event.     

These challenges include, for example, where persons are told that to register is an illegal activity and they are fending them away from participating in the process. We’ve had incidents where dogs are let out on our enumerators in the field. We’ve had scenarios where enumerators are told that they will not be paid and they should no longer participate in the process,” Lowenfield shared following the appointment of the new GECOM Chairperson, retired judge Claudette Singh.
