WHAT IS GUYANA’S DESTINY? – By Geoffrey Da Silva – former Ambassador. CEO. Minister and Consul General


Geoffrey Da Silva

National Unity with Equal Economic Opportunities
An Ethnic and Political Stalemate with the Consequences of
Persistent Poverty and Bouts of Temporary Insanity

This is a contribution to the many broad initiatives of those Guyanese and friends of Guyana who are searching for ways to build national unity and provide equal economic opportunities for Guyanese in all the ethnic communities. Some persons support a particular political party and many are not politically aligned. It does not matter.

Most importantly, they belong to all the ethnic communities in Guyana and they want a new beginning for Guyana.

I humbly present these reflections and action proposals for critical review and correction. There are five reflections and two action proposals. They are divided into seven Parts so that you can read them separately, at your own convenience.:      (PDF copy below)

Thank you.

    One solution …
    Dictatorship ?
    Final solution
    Assassination or suicide ?

    Says simple Simon
    Crystal ball gazing !

    If I recall President Granger presented a shared governance fix to Jagdeo but he refused. Instead he talked about a government of inclusivity. Well Guyanese will see what he considers a government of inclusivity if the PPP is declared the winner. Mr. DaSilva your article is excellent and based on your wide experience, and knowledge of politics in various countries, unlike some of the overseas armchair analysts on this Blog. Unless BOTH parties can come together and agree on truly unifying the ethnic Guyanese people with shared governance, your suggestions/solutions will not work in Guyana.

      Agree !
      Good intentions/ideas in politricks seldom
      Who will bell the cat ?

      Granger and Jagdeo agreeing on a way
      out of the sespit of Guyana’s politics today !
      Capitalism V Communism
      Corruption the stigmata !
      Dream on !

      Don’t know if you remember when the PPP was the party fighting colonialism against the British. LFSB was pert of that fight. But, the British and Americans wanted to divide and conquer, so they offered Forbes an offer he could not refuse and the rest is history.

      Granger is proposing shared governance now, when he should have offered that in 2015.

      There is so much wrong with Guyana, and the so called politicians and so called educated folks cannot solve for the common citizens. They only want to line their pockets, period. All the ordinary citizens have to rise up, take over, then form a shared government from amongst themselves.

    There is a stubbornness, hard headed, attitude, deeply ingrained in Guyanese, which is probably the reason they have not succumbed or been overwhelmed by outside influence as is with other small independent countries.
    Comparison to other countries with similar problems, does not seem to move them either. Does anyone have a common theme that can unite the country?

      I think Mr. DaSilva just told you.

        Very sad
