Jagdeo has no moral authority to speak on corruption – Badal

Bharrat Jagdeo

Robert Badal

Local businessman, Robert Badal has declared that this is the last time he will respond to former President, Bharrat Jagdeo, who is “fading into insignificance.”

However, in his “last” response, Badal insisted that he manages all his businesses “above board.” Badal is the owner of Pegasus Hotel and the majority shareholder of Guyana Stockfeeds Limited.

The fallout between Jagdeo and Badal goes way back. However, it was recently provoked when Jagdeo realized that Government lost 31 percent of ownership it had in Guyana Stockfeeds.        Continue reading

Ralph Ramkarran

Ramkarran, a former long-standing member of the PPP, made his view known in his most recent column.

There, he acknowledged that Ramson recently announced publicly that he would seek the PPP’s nomination to be its presidential candidate for the 2020 general elections. But, Jagdeo chided Ramson and said that he deviated from party principles.            Continue reading

Jagdeo, David Patterson, Khemraj Ramjattan and the IAC – By Freddie Kissoon

Jagdeo, David Patterson, Khemraj Ramjattan and the IAC – By Freddie Kissoon

By Freddie Kissoon

The brother of Minister David Patterson was arrested for narcotics in Grenada. Before that, there was a celebration in the New Amsterdam prison where prohibited items were in use. Bharrat Jagdeo took some nasty swipes at Minister Patterson. The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) took some nasty swipes too at Khemraj Ramjattan, Minister of Security.

Jagdeo thinks Patterson should do the right thing insinuating that he should resign though Jagdeo stated that the Opposition Leader is not calling on Patterson to resign. The IAC is demanding Ramjattan’s resignation. Both Jagdeo and the IAC are creatures from another world that the Guyanese people need to read up on. Here are some notes about them.    Continue reading

Guyana- Guerrilla/gorilla warfare in the PPP – By Freddie Kissoon

Guyana- Guerrilla/gorilla warfare in the PPP – By Freddie Kissoon

Kaieteur News –  27 January 2017

Maybe there are persons in Guyana who do not know the connection of Bharrat Jagdeo to the newspaper owned by Bobby Ramroop. Kaieteur News on several occasions has openly stated that Mr. Jagdeo is co-owner of the Guyana Times. I believe he is. Mr. Jagdeo then can place any distortion or mischief or propaganda or fake news or alternative facts or personal venom in the paper.

When there appears to be a news item in the Jagdeo/Ramroop newspaper attacking the President of GAWU, Komal Chand, the poisonous statements against Chand suggested that it was a hatchet job arranged by Jagdeo and others in the PPP. The reporting was opaque. For example, the newspaper said it interviewed several workers but there were no specific descriptions – names of sugar workers, estates visited.    Continue reading

Jagdeo cusses out defenders of GECOM Chairman appointment – AFC Responds

Jagdeo cusses out defenders of GECOM Chairman appointment

Kaieteur News – 27 October 2017

Unapologetic about his language, Leader of the Opposition and General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), Bharrat Jagdeo went on a profane tirade against defenders of President David Granger’s decision to unilaterally appoint James Patterson as the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).

At a press conference which was aired live via the PPP/C’s Freedom radio station, Jagdeo appeared clearly upset with the media, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo and those who agreed with the President, that the 18 names submitted for the post of Chairman were not ‘fit and proper’.

“This is all bulls**t,” the former President declared to reporters, as he discussed suggestions made by the Prime Minister about constitutional reform, which could address the appointment of the GECOM Chairman.     Continue reading

Opinion…Race and politics: Guyana’s two disastrous hurricanes

Opinion…Race and politics: Guyana’s two disastrous hurricanes

For decades now, once there was a destructive hurricane heading for the Caricom islands, a satirical wind would blow all over Guyana, whether in the rum shop, municipal market, at home at the lunch table or anyway where Guyanese are gathered. And it would go like this; “We don’t get natural disasters, only man-made ones.”

That would be followed up with the words: “Those people will recover, but our man-made hurricane won’t go away.”     Continue reading

If Guyana cannot confront people like Ryhaan Shah and Ravi Dev, it will explode – By Freddie Kissoon

If Guyana cannot confront people like Ryhaan Shah and Ravi Dev, it will explode

Mar 07, 2017  Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon

Guyana is seeing dangerous waters coming right onto its doorsteps but if it doesn’t act, it will face horrible consequences. A group named the Guyana Indian Indentureship Abolition Association (GIIAA), founded by some of the worst rabid minds existing in this world and funded by some businessmen who accumulated vast wealth from Bharrat Jagdeo’s oligarchic rule, put on a presentation at the National Cultural Centre to commemorate the hundred years of the abolition of indentureship last Friday.

Some of the presenters were the usual suspects – people who ideologically believe in ethnic superiority in Guyana and people who see the fall of the PPP in May 2015 as a defeat for the permanent rule of the PPP and the collapse of a labyrinthine, ethnic web of money, politics and power that characterized Guyana under the domination of Jagdeo from 1999 to 2015. I put the date to 2015 because a mediocre, jejune leader like Donald Ramotar was a mere front for Jagdeo when Ramotar held the presidency.   Continue reading
