Dear Editor,   I have to write begging on behalf of myself and other Amerindians for clarification of the report in Kaieteur News of June 21 headlined ‘Toshaos elections set for July.’ Either the reporter was as confused as we are by numerous contradictions and puzzling statements in the post-cabinet press briefing, or he has seriously misrepresented the Minister of State and our own Sydney Allicock.
