Shawn Hinds Interview  on HGPTV

Shawn Hinds Interview on HGPTV


Shawn Hinds, who has served as a bodyguard for various PPP personnel, recently divulged in a TV interview that there is a conspiracy to pin the Crum-Ewing murder of him.  In this first video he says that he went to Freedom House fearing that his life was in danger but was ignored by nervous personnel there.  In the second video he admits to his past as a member in the “Death Squad” which he says was orchestrated by the Police and PPP ministers Gagraj and Ramsammy.

So he has now gone public to dissociate himself from the Crum-Ewing assassination… and is calling names on TV….(although they have been beeped out in the videos). He has named ministers in the former government as well as others. He has also implicated Retired Asst. Police Commissioner Merai in Waddell’s assassination.  [Now view the videos and stories]  Continue reading

Things to do on a Honeymoon

Posted on July 18, 2015 – by Ralph RamkarranConversation Tree Blog

It is only fair that the traditional honeymoon period of three months of the new APNU+AFC administration be exhausted before its performance is assessed. The Government has a plan against which a judgment will be made. It is called the hundred-day programme. Little is heard of it nowadays but we, the people, who are intended to be its beneficiaries, are looking forward anxiously to its fulfillment.

The public is not familiar with the inner workings of Governments and we acknowledge that urgent events are demanding attention. Last week it was the heavy rains and flooding which required top priority – a 4 am Cabinet meeting. It is not known if all Ministers were able to make it.   Continue reading

Presidential term limit unconstitutional, High Court rules

Presidential term limit unconstitutional, High Court rules

(by Denis Chabrol and Zena Henry – Demerara Waves

The High Court on Thursday 9 July 2015 ruled that having a presidential term limit is unconstitutional, paving the way for Bharrat Jagdeo to again contest future elections if there is a referendum or successful appeal.

“The court therefore holds that Act No. 17 of 2001, in so far as it seeks to trench on an dilute the pre-existing democratic rights of the electorate to elect as President a person of their own choice, needed a referendum and is invalid  and without legal effect for reason of non-compliance with Article 164 (2) (a) and/or repugnancy with Article 1 (democratic society) and Article 9 (sovereignty belongs to the people) both of which Articles require a referendum for any alteration,” said Chief Justice Ian Chang in his ruling.  Continue reading

We have not done enough talking on power-sharing – Eusi Kwayana

We have not done enough talking, grounding, conferences on power-sharing

eusi Kwayana -in 2014

eusi Kwayana (90) -in 2014

Letter: By Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor:  Mr Tacuma Ogunseye, arguing the case for Africans, has raised the issue of power-sharing as it can play a part in the governance of Guyana. My own view is that while he stands out as a voice for the future of all Guyanese society, he recommends marches as a means of achieving it. We need means that inform, educate, or appeal to reason or goodwill. He is in Guyana, and I am not, and perhaps he believes that none of these matter any more.

Political marches of one race, from when they started, and regardless of their cause, have terrified others. We do not seem to realise that what we have not done enough of is grounding, talking, conferences, on these important issues.   Continue reading

Former Guyana Government – Willful waste of money – commentary

Willful waste of money

June 4, 2015 | By KNews | Filed Under Editorial

Disclosures that the previous government was dispensing money like a tap dispensing water has indeed come as a shock to the many taxpayers who each day must struggle to make ends meet. 

One glaring case involves the government recruiting an individual who left these shores for whatever reason to reside in Canada. There is no shortage or reportorial skills in Guyana so for the government to reach out to Canada and recruit an individual who is at best mediocre to perform duties at the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry and to pay that person US$7,333 per month ($1.5M) per month can only be a case of cronyism.  Continue reading
