I will donate to Haitians who want to settle in Guyana – By Freddie Kissoon

My disgust was combined with anger when I read the negative sentiments that they are coming to take “our economic greatness” and since they do not speak English and are not from our culture, they will contaminate it.
My vehement and emotional objection was two-fold. Such perverse thoughts should never come from the pen and lips of a Guyanese.

Now since the 13th oil and gas discoveries off the Guyana coast and an estimated recoverable resource of over six billion oil-equivalent barrels, we are witnessing the rise of Guyana.

ExxonMobil is building its Guyana headquarters on ten acres of land that it leased from Ogle. In January 2018, the media in Guyana reported that “ExxonMobil also wants to build a training center and a helipad.            Continue reading
