GUYANA: Madhia Fire: Letter to the Editor from Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor:

The first thing I want to do is to give condolences from my narrow circle and myself to the relatives and communities who have suffered as a result of the dormitory fire at the Mahdia secondary school.

The unspeakable situation at Mahdia is a challenge and an indictment to all the groups that call themselves citizens. This is a call to all alert citizens, especially to the Guyana Bar Association, and Guyana Human Rights Organization, and civil society groups to see to it that the laws of Guyana are no further evaded in the investigation of this tragedy.  Continue reading

CRICKET: BOURDA – By Ian McDonald.


On March the 8th I attended a Night of Recognition in honor of Reds Perreira at Bourda. It reminded me of so much.

It is good that the Providence Stadium is now well established in the game. But it remains sad that Bourda is no longer the site for hard-fought cricket between nations. A long tradition, the most remarkable in the whole West Indies, ended. So much was therefore lost. That long brightness fell into shadow. One of the most famous and revered grounds in all cricket history came to an end of its great days at the sunlit summit of the game.          Continue reading

GUYANA: Amerindian Association unfazed by Jagdeo’s attacks

…says will continue to monitor policies, decisions that affect the lives of indigenous peoples

Feb 22, 2023 – Kaieteur News – Against the background of recent attacks on the organisation, by Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo, the Amerindian Peoples Association (APA) said it is unfazed by the action of the government official, reminding that it has a responsibility to monitor the policies and decisions that particularly affect the lives of indigenous peoples in Guyana and will continue to do so.

Last week during a meeting with Amerindian leaders, Jagdeo lashed out at the organisation for its criticisms of government’s handling of the carbon credit sale initiative it has embarked on.  The APA is not the only organisation that has criticised the initiative. In responding to Jagdeo the APA said the VPs vilification of the organisation is a continuation of the attacks by Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Nigel Dharamlall. “However, the APA remains resolute in its objective of ensuring that indigenous peoples’ rights are protected and respected by all. The APA also wonders why the organisation is being used as a scapegoat and distraction, and why the real issues are not being addressed.”  Continue reading
