Castration —- not the panacea for Sexual Healing of the Nation – By Yvonne Sam

– By Yvonne Sam

As the country prepares for election, the vote should hold the key to correction.

Permit me to respond to the impassioned plea of Hajji Dr. Roshan Khan, Chairman/Founder of RK’s Guyana Security Service in his article https://www.kaieteurnewsonline.com/2019/09/15/i-support-this-form-of-punishment-for-paedophilia/ wherein he voiced his support for castration (chemical or surgical) as the deterrent for pedophilia.

Recently, I reported on the first two events staged by the Guyana Cultural Association of New York in their 2019 Season of Events.

Guyana Politics: I Stand with the Poor: A New Coalition Government must uplift them – Dr. David Hinds

 

This compartmentalisation has worked against a holistic discourse which in turn inhibits an overarching vision. It occurs both at the level of those who seek to influence government and those who actually govern. It is not that I am against single-issue advocacy, but what is lacking is the linkages between and among those issues—a relationship between the tree and the forest.            Continue reading
