Guyana Map – Regions

DPI, Added 16 July 2019.

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Paramakatoi residents in Region 8, will soon reap the benefits of a very complex project that began in 2017 to provide easy access to potable water for the community.

The project, which was initiated through the signing of an Memorandum of Understanding between the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) and the village council, is now at an advanced stage where testing of the water system has commenced.

Dr Van West-Charles, accompanied by technical personnel, on Sunday, went to Paramakatoi, (Potaro-Siparuni) Region 8 and trekked through the jungle to get a first-hand look of the recently completed water system so as to ensure all systems are in place for distribution to the community and for commissioning.        Continue reading

The creation of the game had nothing to do with the Nazi Party or its officials, who actually protested that it did not sufficiently highlight their own stupendous achievements.                    Continue reading

Criticism does not necessarily equate to disloyalty – By Mohamed Hamaludin

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

From the time I learned about the United States of America, I became enchanted by this magical nation that was so vastly different from my native Guyana that it could have been on another planet. Much of my impression came from movies and, to a less extent, newspapers and magazines as I grew older; there was no television in Guyana at the time.

That impression strengthened after I was selected a fellow in the now long-defunct work-study-travel Foreign Journalist Project sponsored by the State Department.        Continue reading
