HAPPY ARRIVAL DAY – 2019

HAPPY ARRIVAL DAY

Today, Kaieteur News joins the nation to celebrate another Arrival Day. Here are messages from other organizations to mark this notable day.

PEOPLE’S PROGRESSIVE PARTY

The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, home and abroad, on the occasion of Arrival Day. May 5th, the designated day, is of much significance in commemorating the arrival of our ancestors who came to these shores from various parts of the world.

They braved the dark seas during their grueling journey here, at different points of our history, and laboured to make this land their home. Despite the hardships faced, they were resolute in their endeavours to preserve their cultural traditions and values which have shaped our lives.              Continue reading

“We are not afraid of Roger Khan’s release”- Bharrat Jagdeo

“We are not afraid of Roger Khan’s release”- Bharrat Jagdeo

Roger Khan

 

  • Former President Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday declared that he had nothing to do with convicted drug lord, Shaheed ‘Roger’ Khan or a phantom gang and said if he is found guilty of crimes here, he should be jailed again.
  • “We are not afraid of Roger Khan’s release because we had nothing to do with Roger Khan and if he did crime in Guyana he must face the consequences too. We’re not afraid of that,” Jagdeo said.

Khan, who is expected to be released on July 8, 2019 from a US jail for trafficking cocaine to that country, had stated in several newspaper statements before he had been captured in neighbouring Suriname that he had prevented the Jagdeo administration from being toppled by a coup.            Continue reading

A pandit, a pastor and a rotten system

I should say that nothing can surprise me anymore. The media business is designed to do exactly that, but you learn after a while to deal with it. Yet it appears more and more that quite a few headlines have served up a curve ball that would stagger you.

Before this past week, I knew nothing of Pandit Ubraj Narine. Kaieteur News reported then that he was a front-runner to be elected mayor. I thought that would have been a tough sell.

We are talking here about Georgetown, the capital city, a stronghold of the People’s National Congress Reform. Yet on Friday, Pandit Narine was sworn in.                  Continue reading

In his address to the 18th biennial delegates’ conference of the PNCR this afternoon, Party leader David Granger urged a One Nation solution for the country and lambasted the PPP/C for not seizing the opportunity for more inclusive governance.

In the text of his address released by Congress Place he urged delegates to keep the pressure up to “push the PPP out of office, elect a government of national unity and give the Guyanese people the good life that they deserve”.

He also alighted on the Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh’s management of the country’s finances stating that it has been a major source of political contention. He added “We shall soon settle that!”  That remark appears to be a reference to Singh’s spending of $4.5B which has brought the country to the brink of a motion of no confidence by the opposition majority in Parliament against the government.

Granger’s address follows:   Continue reading
