Minister of Information Daryl Vaz - File

With a truce now called between Mavado and Vybz Kartel, Minister of Information, Daryl Vaz, said there are possible sanctions if the two go back to feuding.

"There will definitely be sanctions," Vaz told THE WEEKEND STAR. "We will exercise whatever sanctions we can."

He however, said that any action taken would be within the realms of the Jamaican law, more specifically through the police and/or the Broadcasting Commission. Without getting very specific, the Minister said one of the things the police might do is refuse permits for events that the two artistes will be on.

In addition, Vaz says he hopes the issue will be resolved and that the truce between Mavado and Vybz Kartel will be long-lasting.

But questions are being raised about how long the peace will remain between them, as this is not the first time the two artistes have claimed to end their feud. In February 2007, then Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mark Shields, and Kimani Robinson, former principal of RE TV, held a press conference at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel with both artistes. At that press conference, Vybz Kartel said, "This is not a publicity stunt. Wi si seh di ting all a reach inna di schools an' it a go too far suh we haffi do sum'n."

Yet, the bitter rivalry somehow restarted and with the Gully/Gaza feud reaching new heights (even impacting on school children), it drew the attention of the government.

Over the past few weeks, Mavado and Vybz Kartel have met with Bishop Herro Blair from the Peace Management Initiative, and on Sunday, both performed together at the West Kingston Jamboree, in Tivoli Gardens, West Kingston.

On Tuesday, both Mavado and Vybz Kartel met with Blair, Vaz, National Security Minister Dwight Nelson, chairman of the National Transformation Programme, Reverend Al Miller and others at Jamaica House, where they both agreed to take the necessary steps to resolve the conflict.
