NEW OMBUDSMAN:  WISDOM OF WAITING

By  EWALT AINSWORTH                            01 25 2014

A former commissioned GDF-er (soldier) His Excellency Winston Moore is Guyana’s new  OMBUDSMAN.  It is now official and the retired Judge  has filled the breach  and ended the waiting game which was tumultuous and sometimes arduous.

The office of ombudsman  has been non-existent for more than a decade and there was no place  for everyday people to have a discourse with authorities even though the abuses, were acute, complex, deliberate, sustained and maintained as business as usual.  Food prices were outrageous; bribes were evident in every sector;  brides non-existent and pride fell on its knees.

The wisdom of waiting has begun to show dividends for the opposition parties.
This week the government began mutual meetings with the opposition re budget talks.  More will be said about this in a later discussion.

Mr. Winston Moore a steady and ready operative in the legal community has been sitting on the proverbial bench waiting his turn for more than ten years.  He is a native of Alness on the Courantyne…a born PNC activist and a family man who believes in fair play, equity and equality.  .  Winston has a younger who bears the name plate…Forbes.

Even though his wait was not in vain he does not yet gave or feels the full weight and support of the government.  One shudders at the idea that it will be a one-man show when in fact there are ten administrative regions with the same problems of cultivated and controlled attitudinal maladies.

In Georgetown, for example, none of the clocks work.  There is no public place where one can find out the time.  For as long as the PPP has been in power there has been no clock …no time.  There has been an accumulation of garbage outside of Parliament, City Hall, down-town shopping areas, in South, in North, on the seawall and everywhere you go.

This week the PPP took the most difficult step in its entire career to kick to the curb the man who single-handedly bred vermin and vice in Georgetown …the right honorable local government Minister His Excellency Ganga Persaud.  .It is only within these  lines that Ganga will be referred to as  excellent.  The opposition wants him charged for allegedly impregnasting a fourteen year old Amerindian girl.  An undercover officer also caught Ganga  soliciting sex outside one of the more familiar sleazy motels in town.

The PPP is very ‘two-zee’….two Presidents; two brigadiers’  two local government ministers and one can suspect two Prime Ministers.  Brigadier Joe Singh has been performing the parallel duties of Prime Minster and is currently in a waiting pattern.
Dem boy say that his wife is black and this may be standing in his way for confirmation.
Changing gears slightly.  A fortnight ago, when Ombudsman Moore was sworn in by President Ramotar, in the capital in the distant and cold clime of Canada the first black citizens judge…Mr. Dennison was funeralised.
The entire immigrant community came out to mourn his passing the passing of this illustrious luminary and scholar.  .  He was cremated four days after his passing and his remains will be transferred at a later date for internment in Guyana…weather permitting.
