Guyana: PPP’s Deputy Chairman in Linden defects to new Ramkarran-Jeffrey party

Blair and Jagdeo

The Deputy Chairman of the main opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in Linden, Akanni Blair has decided to join A New United Guyana (ANUG), less than three days after it announced its existence.

Blair confirmed his move in an interview with Demerara Waves Online News, saying that while the governing David Granger-led coalition was not expected to win the next genera elections, he is worried that if the PPP wins again the country could end up being a one-party state like Cuba if there is no constitutional reform.        Continue reading

During the year 2018, I was fortunate to be able to take scores of photographs across three continents – Africa, North America and South America. Here are the top twelve which I have selected from the many which I really love.

Ambassador Riyad Insanally and his son Jamie, also viewed the World-Famous British Guiana One-Cent Magenta Postage Stamp which is on exhibition at the museum.

My New Year Resolution for Guyana – By Yvonne Sam

Sometimes people do not want to hear the truth for fear of getting their illusion destroyed.

According to Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, the German philosopher, poet and cultural critic,  “He who has a why to live can endure almost any how”. Strangely that is the current state in which all or most of the residents of Guyana find themselves. There is a heavy degree of hopelessness in the air, and this shows itself differently depending on one’s social economic status.  In just a matter of days the beginning of a New Year (2019) will be upon us.  While many are looking forward to a brand New Year, others of us reflect on the ones that have passed.
