GUYANA: ‘Nothing new from Vice News’ …says Glenn Lall

 …Glenn Lall says Opposition was silent when K/News was exposing corruption

Glenn Lall

Jun 22, 2022 – Kaieteur News – Kaieteur News Publisher, Glenn Lall has criticised opposition and other operatives who have opportunistically latched on to disclosures in a recent Vice News documentary on Guyana, saying that for years his newspaper has shone light on the shadowy deals with the PPP/C Guyana Government and Chinese companies, but the same people who are now speaking up were silent.

The Vice News documentary titled: “Guyana for Sale” which premiered on Sunday has as its main character, Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo. His Chinese tenant and “friend” businessman, Su Zhi Rong is heard in the interview accusing Jagdeo of allegedly accepting bribes for large developmental projects undertaken in the country. Jagdeo has denied the allegations and has since signalled that he will take legal action against the Chinese businessman and also promised to evict him from his property.      Continue reading

December 30, 2021- Kaieteur News – Scores of Guyanese on Wednesday picketed in front of the Arthur Chung Conference Centre (ACCC)—where a sitting of the National Assembly was being held to protest their opposition to the Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) Government’s rush to pass a new Natural Resources Bill, which many have since condemned as a move to legalise wholesale thievery of Guyana’s oil revenues.

Is there a strategy to this cuss-down drama? – Commentary

Is there a strategy to this cuss-down drama?

Attorney Roysdale Forde explained to me that he thinks that Mr. Jagdeo’s cuss-down style at the PPP rallies is a stratagem designed to shift focus away from Mr. Ramotar. He explained that as the campaign gets older and as Mr. Jagdeo continues to cuss down, the opposition, the media and other Guyanese political observers reserve their attention for Mr. Jagdeo’s unbecoming style and Mr. Ramotar is left out of the picture.

This is one explanation and it may be valid. At least it sounds and looks plausible. And indeed Mr. Jagdeo’s intemperate rage does bring him into the focus of both the media and opposition politicians. Are there other theories? There may be. I will offer a number of other explanations. One could be psychological.     Continue reading
