Linden rebuilding begins in Guyana

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (GINA) — Head of the Presidential Secretariat and Cabinet Secretary, Dr Roger Luncheon, at a post- Cabinet press briefing on Wednesday informed media operatives that major features of the Linden agreement are being put in place with the inputs and support of principal stakeholders.Luncheon also said that the situation on the ground is evolving satisfactorily with visibly sustained efforts at the re-establishment of normalcy in the township.

“Cabinet discussed a range of proposals brought by its education sector to deal with the pressing the dilemma of relocating the more than 800 displaced primary school children from the burnt out school,” Luncheon said.   

He added that the amounts needed for the procurement and installation of necessities at the temporary site have been reviewed by the Central Ministry, and are currently being quantified.

Additionally, the Ministry of Health is occupied with planning the relocation to maintain the provision of services at alternate locations, for those communities that lost their service that was being provided at the burnt out Vivian Daniels health care facility

On Tuesday evening government and the Region Ten delegation signed the agreement that was realised by both parties on four areas of concern to the Region.

Earlier in the week, Education Minister Priya Manickchand visited the site of the burnt out One Mile Primary School in Linden and discussed the ministry’s plan with the parents.

    This new exercise at linden with relocation of Both Health and Education facilities at Linden must be a grim reminder of what misguided Politicians can lead their supporters to do. The destruction has been done. The message was sent and recieved and now the reconcialiation and rebuilding has begun. Lets hope that this kind of mischief is not repeated elsewhere in any part of Guyana in the future and that discussions shall always lead us to accomplish more than violent protests. The poorer class of people will always suffer in the end. and this is what is happening in Linden now. 800 families with children to go to school do not know where their wards will go to school until a temporary facility is located.

    Tewarie, would you address the people of Egypt, Libya, Syria and India, just to name a few countries, fighting for justice, GOONS? My citizenship to the US was made possible by the Civil Rights struggle of GOONS. I hope you are not a recipient of this opulence.
