GUYANA: Govt. puts hold on US$20M World Bank loan to strengthen scrutiny of oil sector

Apr 26, 2022 – Kaieteur News – By Kiana Wilburg

Since the PPP/C Government has not requested any disbursements from a US$20M loan Guyana took three years ago to help strengthen the nation’s capacity to manage the oil sector effectively, the World Bank said it has been forced to downgrade the country’s performance score on the loan.

The latest implementation status and results (ISR) report recalls that the money was approved on March 29, 2019 for the Guyana Petroleum Resources Governance and Management Project (GPRGMP). The programme’s objective is to ensure the enhancement of legal and institutional frameworks and the strengthening of the capacity of key institutions to manage the oil and gas sector.

A Financing Agreement in the amount of US$20 million was signed and declared effective on April 11, 2019 under the David Granger administration. The ISR, which was reviewed by Kaieteur News presents the implementation status of GPRGMP as of March 2022.        Continue reading

Perhaps it’s true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Perhaps it’s true that you only know what you truly love when you no longer have it. But I wouldn’t have known any of this if I hadn’t left it all behind to discover where my home truly was…

Growing up in British Guiana in the 1950s, Sharon Maas has everything a shy child with a vivid imagination could wish for.

USA: A Tribute in memory of Colin Moore – By Lear Matthews

Colin Moore

A Tribute in memory of Colin Moore  – By Lear Matthews

As we mourn the loss of Colin Moore, bringing a message of condolence and comfort to his family, I would like to share a few thoughts about my friend, colleague and mentor. He has been a champion for human rights, a voice of the downtrodden and devoted son of the soil.

What he has done as a political activist, legal scholar, historian, community organizer, father, husband and citizen of the world has left an indelible mark which will continue to influence many lives. His political advocacy spanned the globe, but particularly Guyana, Jamaica and the US. He participated in early efforts to establish a National Arts Council Center in Guyana to promote cultural and ethnic unity, and national solidarity.        Continue reading

Guyana Politics: PPP/C launches election campaign for 2020 polls

Hundreds of its supporters, decked in red shirts with PPP/C logos, shouted and screamed for party frontbenchers Bharrat Jagdeo, Irfaan Ali and Mark Phillips.

There are several notable mentions. ………  Bishop Juan Edghill gave an impassioned, sermon-like speech, addressing a stigma on the PPP/C from some sections of the public that it may not be a party welcoming to African Guyanese. He stressed a firm rebuke for those aspersions on the reputation of the PPP/C, then went on to list a number of African Guyanese party members as proof that it is welcoming.            Continue reading
