SING(H)ULAR AND PLURAL      

By Ewalt Ainsworth                       07 09 2012

Retired Lt. Colonel Joe Singh is back at his old job at Guyana’s Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T), after he was reassigned to the Guyana Gold Board.  Singh in some sectors is called Sing(h)ular as a pun to the American carrier called   CINGULAR.

Joe spent a brief six months at the re-constituted and just as suspect Guyana Gold Board.  Insiders claim that he had personality clashes with the Minister in charge, Robert Persaud who wanted him to stand to attention and literally salute.  The general staff declined and so too did Joe.  But that is a matter for a different arena.

TELECOMS local and international auditors are slightly mum about the expanse, extent and extreme criminal mischief inflicted on the Guyanese masses by corporate East Indian executives.  The monies missing may be larger than the nation’s annual budget of US85million dollars as approved by the joint parliament this year.  Jagdeo and Ramotar handpicked the scoundrels to vacuum the telephone company.  CHITNUH FUH LICK DOG.    

Do not ask me how they did it?

There seems to be an entrenched coziness between and among all the administrators who are Indians and drink at the same watering hole.  Black people like to stand in line while Indians toe the line and fall in line to help each other irrespective of the outcome; once there is income TELECOM was drained.

Joe Singh who is a plural man of mixed ancestral heritage has been touted as the only person in the entire executive community of the PPP that behaves like he does.  Joe is both honorable and honorary and lives within his means.  Perhaps you can blame that on his heritage.

This is not a note to dissect the moral fibre of East Indians but honesty has never seemed to be the way their business is done.  Now that Joe is back at the helm at least five managers have been sanctioned.  Another 40 persons in the accounting and sales teams have also been sequestered and have been given limited access and responsibilities as investigations intensify.  Uncovering Guyana’s largest fraud may also stretch to other territories.

The Chinese recently acquired a 20 per cent stake in telecoms without the tacit approval of the Board of Directors.  Ancillary staff did not know of this investment until it was released within this blog.  In six months the management team misappropriated more money than the company earned so far this decade.  Insiders are suggesting that there are several international slush and escrow accounts and the finance executives in concert with the administrators have been milking and spiriting away the monies.  Reports are they give themselves a million US each week.  In addition the GT executives have been flying their relatives abroad as far as Kuwait on chartered jets.  ASOMELYKAM.
