GUYANA: The Guyana Police Force : Remuneration and corruption

Guyana Police Force Badge

By EDITORIAL: Stabroek News – December 6, 2022

Last week’s public disclosure of the emoluments of policemen and women evoked some level of public ‘hum.’ Comments focused mostly on what was felt to be the paltriness of the remuneration.  Some of the discussants wondered aloud as to whether the salaries afforded those cops on the lower rungs of the ladder, particularly, do not, in fact, contextualize embedded allegations of corrupt practices in the Force.

The argument that salary levels ought not to be posited as justification (or explanation) for the perpetration of practices that bring the Force into disrepute will always hold a generous measure of weight. One of the responses to that argument has been that functionaries who fall into the categories of Public Servants (and the Police are, in effect, Public Servants) have all, traditionally, found themselves in the same circumstance as far as emoluments are concerned but that not everyone had yielded to the temptation to subsidize their incomes through the pursuit of unwholesome options.      Continue reading

GUYANA: Is the US becoming impatient with Guyana?

By Ralph Ramkarran – Conversation Tree Blog

November 13, 2022 – Stabroek News. Guyana

Why is it necessary for the US Ambassador, Her Excellency Sarah Ann Lynch, to again call for inclusion, long term growth for all nationals and legislation against corruption? Ambassador Lynch’s remarks on the Wilson Centre’s Plaza Centre podcast titled “Guyana’s ‘oil Rush” were reported by Demerara Waves on 9 November.

Ambassador Lynch is reported to have said: “It is an ethnically divided society and so they need to focus on inclusion and there have been many efforts to do so far but they will need to continue to do that at an increased pace.”

In relation to economic growth the Ambassador said: “…we are encouraging them to focus on efforts that will create sustainable growth for the entire country no matter ethnicity, no matter race, no matter gender, no matter geography…” This implies that such a focus does not exist.        Continue reading

ANNOUNCEMENT – Re Guyanese Online

Due to my illness, and weak state, I was unable to use my computer to respond to comments.

GUYANESE ONLINE:

First of all I must apologize to my readers for not communicating with them earlier. Due to my illness, and weak state, I was unable to use my computer to respond to comments.  Today is my first day back on my computer.

I have been in hospital for the last 80+ days. At one time it looked like I was no more of this world.

I am now in rehab and should be out in a few days.

About a month ago an announcement was made that I had died and that Guyanese Online was no longer being published. I know that this news upset many family and friends and I deeply regret that it was made.

This statement is only partially correct. I am alive and we are now working on the continuation of  Guyanese Online… maybe in a different format……. or a different editor………

I look forward to talking with you soon. Help with Guyanese Online will be greatly appreciated.

Guyanese Online Entries: ON VACATION — until mid August

Hello Readers:

This is just a short note to let you know that Guyanese Online will not be publishing and new entries until around mid August.

We will keep you informed.

All the best!

USA: Ketchup On The White House Wall, Blood On The Steps Of The Capitol – Opinion

Trump couldn’t sit down to eat his lunch without committing a crime

Lucian Truscott Newsletter

We always knew he was a bully and a baby, but testimony today from Cassidy Hutchinson, former aide to Mark Meadows, about Trump’s plate-throwing tantrums in the Oval Office dining room was what they call news.  Hutchinson was testifying about the day in early December of 2020 that the AP news hit the wires with its interview of Attorney General William Barr, who went blatantly on the record that the Department of Justice had investigated dozens of charges of election fraud without finding any evidence sufficient to overturn the results of the election.

Hutchinson testified that she heard “noise” from the opposite end of the hall near the Oval Office.  When she walked down the hall, she found a White House valet in the dining room changing the tablecloth.  He pointed at the wall next to the fireplace mantle and television screen.  “I first noticed there was ketchup dripping down the wall and there was a shattered porcelain plate on the floor,” she said. “The valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the Attorney General’s AP interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall.”          Continue reading

Messages from the two main political parties in Guyana on the 56th Anniversary of Independence

PPP/C: Moving forward with an agenda for transformation

THE People’s Progressive Party/C (PPP/C) extends to all Guyanese, at home and abroad, greetings on Guyana’s 56th independence anniversary.
On June 5, 1958, founder of the PPP/C and former president, the late Dr. Cheddi Jagan, posed an important question to the Legislative Council – What do the people of this country want in this phase of our history?

Today, 56 years following independence, this question has contemporary applicability, particularly, given the current global challenges that impact our nation, from the global COVID-19 pandemic to climate change.              Continue reading
