GUYANA: Wha Mo Yo Want?!! – By Eric Matthews

Just  sun,  an’  more  sun,  an’  rain,  an’  more  rain,

An’ mud  an’ slush,  an’ sandy  beaches,  an’  northeast  trades,

An’  a  hundred  waterfalls,  an’  rapids,  an’  rivers,  an’  creeks,

Black,  fresh,  muddy,  slow,  swift- flowing,

All heading  fo’  de  Atlantic.

Cool  mountains,  dark  starry  night  skies,  an’  wide  open  savannahs,

Rich  earth,  virgin,  pristine  forests.

Wha’  mo’yo’  want?  Everytingyo’  want  deh  hay!

Guyana is continuing on the same corruption trajectory – Letter by Geoffrey Da Silva

Nov. 21, 2021- Letter by Geoffrey Da Silva

Many governments throughout the world experience an increase in corruption as they enter the second year of their 5-year mandate because, by then, those politicians and officials who are intent on wrongdoing have “learnt the ropes” and have become bold and shameless in carrying out illegal activities. This happened from the second year of the APNU / AFC government..

The Kaieteur News and the Stabroek News published many articles and letters about real or possible corruption between 2015 and 2020 such as: [1] the scam at the government-owned asphalt plant at Garden of Eden where some private contractors got huge discounted prices, and a non-existent company from Trinidad and Tobago was paid $9.8 million; [2] at the Ministry of Public Health, 300 truckloads of expired medicine worth GUY $10 Billion had to be dumped; [3] at the Guyana Revenue Authority, some of the major oil importers abused tax exemption letters with the alleged support of some officials; [4] at the Environmental Protection Agency, a 20-year environmental permit was illegally granted to Exxon and the High Court had to  rule that the law only allowed a 5-year permit; [5] large contracts were granted to local an d foreign construction companies that had track records of not completing Government-awarded projects on time and within costs.        Continue reading

GUYANA: NOSTALGIA: Great Picnic Spots! – By Geoff Burrowes

 By Geoff Burrowes

 There were- not far from Georgetown, some great spots for picnicking.

What do you need for a really enjoyable picnic? A beach is nice, preferably not too crowded; a safe place to swim; a ball, it may be a tennis ball (wimpuss), a beach ball or even a balata ball: a spot to play cricket or football, good company, people you enjoy being with; good drink; good food; and people who are willing to prepare it and make sure it keeps coming and also, but not absolutely necessary, good music.

If there’s no music available, the willingness to sing or play instruments helps, the picnickers don’t have to be good, just willing! Continue reading
