A list of the sexual misconduct accusations made against Donald Trump. He has denied the allegations

Lucia Graves and Sam Morris | The Guardian UK

A growing list of powerful men have faced serious consequences for sexual misconduct allegations but the most powerful one of all has faced none.

A Change is within range: Sexual Offence Court now in session – By Yvonne Sam

A Change is within range–     Sexual Offence Court now in session.

By Yvonne Sam

Dear Editor,

It is every parentworstnightmares on discovering that not only did their underage child have sex, but is also bearing the fruit of such an act. For centuries, the law formally forbidding sexual activity with children has operated on the basis that there is a certain age below which children cannot consent to sex. Currently in Guyana the age of consent is 16. This age was raised from 13 to 16 on October 31, 2005 by a unanimous resolution of the Parliament of Guyana, amending.        Continue reading

Bishop’s Sexual Saga—The Principal or the Principle?

By Yvonne Sam

Justice should never be contingent on who owns the crime scene.

Although teaching is a fulfilling occupation that has its rewards and challenges, in schools today teachers face more than educational challenges.Teachers are in an exclusive position of trust, care, authority and influence with their students which means that there is an implicit power imbalance between teacher and students.      Continue reading

After the Sexual Harassment Epidemic—What’s Next for future generations?

By Yvonne Sam 

The world has heard the transgressions and witnessed the fall. There are Weinsteins everywhere, but only in certain industries is there a Weinstein effect. Now for the sake of the coming generation we must  from hereon inspect how we teach sexual respect. 

It is blatantly apparent that the time of reckoning for sexual harassment and sexual miscreants has finally arrived.  Every day the name of a new high powered figure is added to the chorus of accusers and accusations, ultimately bringing in its wake shame and career -altering consequences.    Continue reading

How tainted is the Guyana Police Force? – By Adam Harris

How tainted is the Guyana Police Force?

Nov 19, 2017 – Kaieteur News – By Adam Harris

The case of Godfrey Scipio, called ‘Sagga’, continues to stun the nation. This past week the Major Crimes Unit arrested a policeman who was once at the top of the law enforcement pile. This policeman got an on-the-spot promotion in 2015 for solving a series of robberies and even one murder.

He was adjudged the Best Cop in ‘A’ Division and the runner up Best Cop in the police force. He seemed to know who the criminals were and he would lead his colleagues to the home of the criminal or to the location where the criminal was. Pretty soon the reputation of the Guyana Police Force soared.     Continue reading

Another glance at the Jonestown Tragedy – by Francis Quamina Farrier

Francis Quamina Farrier

“Sure I know ’bout Jonestown. Everybody knows ’bout Jonestown”, the elderly African-American gentleman responded to me in a deep Southern accent, when I asked him what he knew about the tragedy which had occurred in Guyana some years previously.

But I’ve always remembered it, if only because of the way in which that stranger to me, was as warm as ever discussing that sordid topic, as though we had known each other for a very long time, and as though it was destiny for a cult which was against all what America stood for, ending in such a dramatic way.      Continue reading
