  • Free little McKenzie’: Crawford says minister’s son should be allowed to work at Gov’t agency if qualified

    Controversial politician Damion Crawford has dismissed as rubbish opposition to the hiring of the son of Local Government minister Desmond McKenzie at the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA).

    Crawford took to Twitter on Tuesday evening after reports of Marcus McKenzie’s alleged appointment to the NSWMA triggered a social media firestorm.

    “So are we saying a politician son should not be able to work with government even if he is qualified for the Job? #Rubbish,” Crawford said in the first of a series of tweets.

    “If I was Desmond McKenzie’s son I would sue my father because I should be able to apply and work anywhere,” he continued with the hashtag #FreeLittleMcKenzie. “Hear ye hear ye a politician child can only be a fisher man… wait no his dad might manipulate the laws of the sea.”

    In a press release, the NSWMA said that the reports stating that Marcus McKenzie was hired by the Authority were “erroneous”.

    According to the Authority, the younger McKenzie had applied to the NSWMA “for a vacant and established position that was advertised nationally for the past few months and not filled”.

    NSWMA said that Marcus McKenzie was assessed to have the requisite qualifications for the post, but the Authority discovered in its due diligence that he was the son of the local government minister.

    “The Minister was alerted and he advised that his son should not be hired at the Authority,” the NSWMA said in the press release.

    Crawford, to emphasise his point, raised hypothetical situations with similar ‘conflicts’.

    “Suppose (Security Minister) Bobby Montague’s brother wants to be a police is he disqualified?” Crawford asked.

    He continued the rant on Wednesday, saying: “Good day children of JLP families don’t vote for ur parents if they win u won’t get a work thank u.”
