Re-employing George Jervis, after found to be involved in corrupt PRACTICES, as Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, and sent home on Administrative leave, is HUGE SLAP in the face of ANTI-CORRUPTION CAMPAIGNERS.

The President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana and his government cannot CONDONE any FORM of corruption or CORRUPT PRACTICES.

George Jervis should not be allowed to take up any form of employment, until and after he has been cleared of the issues that are under investigation. It is sending the WRONG MESSAGE to citizens that CORRUPTION can continue, with impunity.

Hassan, the embattled former General Manager of the Guyana Rice Development Board, was UNILATERALLY appointed to the post, without any consultation with the Rice Board members, a CLEAR VIOLATION of the Laws of Guyana.

As one of a sitting Board Members, I was the only one that raised objection to Hassan’s incompetence and misconduct. The…

thank you massa

heard a minister of government say today that “we have to be ready for the development that’s going to come.” everybody clapped.

also heard today- a young friend’s story of when she was a ward of the state. one day she was sent to a foster home. this was a few years ago, in the beginning of the foster care program; they hadn’t sorted out the stipend part yet. a few mornings later, she got her period. she asked her foster mother for a sanitary pad so she could go to school; she had exams to write. after she finished her exam but before she could go back home, she received a message from her social worker. she was not to go back to the foster home, but to the state-run children’s home instead. “For years afterwards,” she said, “I thought something was wrong with me, that’s why she didn’t want me.. Is only when I got big that I realized she was the one with the problem..

Walter Rodney & Guyana’s Social Cohesion

Socialist Workers Alliance

Two years into the rule of Guyana’s A Partnership for Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU-AFC) coalition government, the “Good Life” promised on the campaign trail has not come to fruition for the masses of Guyanese people. One enduring feature of Guyana’s society, which underpins this lack of progress, is the racial divide between Indo-Guyanese and Afro-Guyanese .

The government formally acknowledges this divide and through the Ministry of Social Cohesion seeks to heal it, however, the government’s vision of social cohesion sees former President Burnham as the “Father of Social Cohesion.” A cursory look at Guyana’s history shows that Burnham was the chief architect in the split within the multi-racial People’s Progressive Party (PPP) and his rule of Guyana from 1966 until his death in 1985 led to deep political divisions which took on racial overtones as his party, the People’s National Congress (PNC) came to be supported almost exclusively by…
