At least Guyanese at home this mother’s day will not have to worry about President Donald Ramotar making an impromptu visit or stopping in to empathise with flood victims in Lethem.  Residents of Region nine…Upper Takatu/Upper Essequibo  have to use their own initiative and bail as  flood-waters from the higher elevations of Brazil wash away their homes, cut electricity supplies and road transportation while the President rushes to save his face in North America.  The people indigenous people in the Rupununi came out in wholesale numbers to support the APNU/AFC and so there is no love lost at this time.  Perhaps if even they burn in hell, Ramotar ent kay.               Continue reading

As we speak, the country is in a mess.  Now is the time for the PPP government to come clean and transform the mess into a message of hope, increased production and productivity and a semblance of honesty.  But nope; the beat goes on and the beef goes out.                Continue reading
