At least two large companies will not be part of the Mash float parade in the city .  Continue reading

Oxymoronically speaking – Commentary by Freddie Kissoon

Oxymoronically speaking – Commentary by Freddie Kissoon

FEBRUARY 28, 2012 | BY KNEWS |FREDDIE KISSOON 

The people that form the leadership of the Government of Guyana do not deserve to hold the high offices that they do. Their level of thinking brings disrespect and ridicule from society. There are times when the main actors in the PPP Government should shut their mouths and just stay quiet whenever the press or the opposition stumbles upon a depraved policy.
It is downright stupid the way the Guyana Government reacted to the description of its pact with Ansa McAl as a secret. Is there such a thing as a public secret? I guess oxymoronically speaking. How can a document be public when no one knows about it and it has not been released for public scrutiny?
But this is what the Guyana Government has told the nation. It boggles the mind to know that Guyana has these people who are in charge of the administration of the nation’s affairs.
The Guyanese people did not know that their government had entered into an agreement with Ansa McAl to release 110,000 hectares of prime, untouched land in Canje, Berbice for ethanol production. We learnt of this from a Trinidad newspaper. Continue reading

MASH 2012 – Beer giants, Digicel rule the road

MASH 2012 – Beer giants, Digicel rule the road

Kaieteur News—February 24, 2012

  • float parade returns to Berbice after two decades

It took three giants –two into brewing and the other into mobile communications – to infuse much-needed energy to transform the Mashramani parade into a gyrating sea of red, blue, gold and white yesterday.
Thousands braved the threat of rain to line the main parade route and watch the annual costume and float parade that marks the climax of celebrations for the country’s Republic anniversary.

Brewery giants Banks DIH and Ansa McAl under their Banks Beer and Carib Beer brands infused the usual bacchanal that was associated with Mashramani, providing much needed entertainment for those who stood hours upon hours waiting.  Of course, there were those who chose the smarter route of picnicking on the sides of the road.
