Attention needed for the depressed community of Albouystown – video


Community Development Councillor thinks more attention should be placed on the depressed community of Albouystown 

Posted: 31 Jan 2013 05:02 PM PST Capitol NewsAlbouystown, which has produced some of Guyana’s outstanding scholars and athletes has been one of the beleaguered communities left in the dark for over a decade by the authorities according to Executive member of the South Georgetown Development Council, Michael Goodman. Goodman said, that the community has been put on the back burner by both the Central Government and the Municipality.

The area is prone to crime, coupled with poor drainage, joblessness, and poor living conditions. President of the neighborhood council, Heston Bostwick, said, the focus of his executive, is to work with the lawmen to ensure that they conduct themselves in a professional manner.

The new body is hoping to conduct several fund raising exercises and is hoping to get the support of corporate Guyana to restore the image of the community.

As is typical for “Bamazon,” the workers faced nerve-wracking problems with their equipment, and the men labored feverishly under severe time constraints. Apparently, everyone had to leave the mining camp before water levels got too low in the nearby river, making exit from the jungle impossible.   Continue reading

Shock waves reverberated around the country Tuesday evening. Former Home Affairs Minister and current General Secretary of the People’s National Congress Reform, Oscar Clarke, had been shot. He had just returned home with his wife who was expecting some relatives.

Four young men, said to be no more than boys, entered the yard and placed a gun to Clarke wife’s head and proceeded to rob the family. This is most remarkable and it tells the story of the level to which the society has descended.   Continue reading
