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

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

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

[BBC News – 03 June 2015]   A study has found rules that required Canadian aboriginals to attend state-funded church schools were responsible for “cultural genocide”.  More than 130 residential schools operated across Canada.

The report released on Tuesday (June 2, 2015) found that First Nation children were often physically and sexually abused.

“They were stripped of their self-respect and they were stripped of their identity,” said Murray Sinclair, one of the study’s authors.   Continue reading

Joey Jagan

Dear Editor:
Before I get to the real substance of this letter, I would like to just let the public understand that with the demise of the PPP leadership, quite a few people have told me about the opportunities I could have if that leadership is challenged.

I would like to make it quite clear to the public that I have committed to the coalition and President Granger and Prime Minister Nagamootoo and I have absolutely no interest in the affairs of the PPP, especially under the dictates of the Gang of 8, who are committed to rendering that party obsolete with their undemocratic, communistic ways.   Continue reading
