Wikileaks cable…  U.S. said: Roger Khan could bring down PPP

CONVICTED narco-trafficker Shaheed Roger Khan can potentially cause great embarrassment to, or even bring down, the People’s Progressive Party, whether in or out of office, by revealing his links with them and the skeletons in their closet.

This is according to a leaked cable from the United States Embassy here, dated June 29, 2006, some 14 or so days after Khan was captured in neighbouring Suriname while fleeing local lawmen.  The U.S. Embassy was quoted in the June 29, 2006 cable as saying that Khan not only enjoyed political protection from high-ranking PPP government officials, but that at a minimum, former Home Affairs Minister Ronald Gajraj and long-time Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr Roger Luncheon collaborated with him.

The PPP had the chance of a lifetime to heal the nation – Eusi Kwayana

The PPP had the chance of a lifetime to heal the nationby using Article 103 to establish a government representing all the people

Dear Editor,

As luck would have it, an email sent me searching for a video on YouTube to find what I did not seek. I was moved to search for a video supposed to feature four Guyanese political figures. Instead I found one featuring one person, or rather personage, the Presidential Adviser on governance and PPP Whip, Ms. Gail Teixeira.

It was an October 23 appearance that dealt with the Honourable lady’s  “Expectations” of the Opposition behaviour in parliament after the National Assembly’s recess just ended.  It was for me an instructive show. I learned several things from Ms Teixeira and I am sure Mr Sultan Mohamed, that outstanding patriot, will not hesitate to respond to my present remarks tomorrow.   Continue reading
