CIA INTERVENTION IN THE INTERNAL POLITICS OF BRITISH GUIANA DURING THE EARLY 1960’S.

Documents alleging the CIA, the U.S., and British Governments had a hand in changing the elected government prior to British Guiana’s independence in 1966 are essential to the theme of the novel RACING WITH THE RAIN.

Author Ken Puddicombe has written a novel using the CIA intervention to flush out the plot and lend credibility to the conflict his characters experienced during the turbulent cold war era.

Racing With The Rain: a phenomenon witnessed in the tropics. A fast moving rain cloud in an otherwise clear sky triggers a sudden downpour and people run helter-skelter for cover. Is it possible to outrun the rain? Can one ever really escape the past and avoid the inevitable?

Puddicombe’s novel spans three decades, shifting locations between pre and post independent Guyana, Cuba after the revolution, and Canada in the 1970’s.

Farrakhan Cleric Wants Guyana Government to Apologise

The True Guyanese Story Of The CIA,Islam, Politics,Race And Injustice

Abdul Akbar Muhammad, international representative of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan andthe Nation of Islam, is back safely in the United States after being detained by law enforcement officials in the South American country of Guyana.

In an exclusive interview, Akbar Muhammad told The Final CallMay 21 that when Guyanese police officers came to his hotel room in the country, an officer said the Central Intelligence Agency had told local authorities he was a terrorist. There are also suspicions that the false arrest and detention could be tied to tensions between the ruling Indian-dominated political party and Black opposition party as elections loom.

The false charges and arrest is part of a sustained effort to trash the good name of Minister Farrakhan and the good works of the Nation of Islam, charged Mr. Muhammad, who has traveled to Guyana on numerous occasions since 1975 and has never had any problems with law enforcement. His most recent visit was about five years ago to speak to young people.

“The Minister is well known in that society, so when you see his name on the front of the paper, people are going to read it,” said Mr. Muhammad. “It’s absolutely to try to make Minister Farrakhan look other than the champion that he is (on behalf) of Black people, and to say that he’s got one of his assistants down there who is a terrorist and dealing drugs and planning some terrorist act against Guyanese society,” he added.
