Not on candidates’ list for Region 10

Dear Editor, I have noted an attempt to comment on my absence from the 7th Regional Democratic Council of Region 10, in articles published in Kaieteur News and wish to share with you that ever since I was elected Regional Chairman in  2006 by the 6th Council of the RDC, I had stated that this would be my last term of office as Chairman.

A job well done

Dear Editor, I write in tribute to Lawrence D Carrington, the outgoing Vice-Chancel-lor of the University of Guyana, someone I came to know in my sabbatical year (2009-2010) and my eight-month visit in 2011.

Duke Lodge and the challenge

Dear Editor, I refer to Gerry Goveia’s challenge to me (SN, Jan 25) that if I prove that Duke Lodge was not properly acquired by him, then, he is prepared to divest himself of the property and return it to the state, among other things.

Inside Out Witness Project

Dear Editor, I do not know who Margaret Clemons is, but she needs to give credit to the French artist JR for her “brainchild” Witness Project, as reported in today’s SN (‘Witness Project’s eyes and faces go up around city’).

Unlawful?

Dear Editor, How lawful is it for the government to enter into contracts without parliamentary/budgeted approval or public tender, with not even a parliament in place?

Some questions for Bruce Wrobel

Dear Editor, I refer to SN’s article titled, ‘IDB vital for Amaila hydro $$ as World Bank say no‘ (January 25), and KN’s parallel coverage on the same date in the item captioned, ‘Loans of US$588 million will cost Guyana US$187 million in fees during construction alone.‘ In both of these news stories, Mr Bruce Wrobel, CEO of Sithe Global, is reported to have explained that the cost of the (Amaila Falls) project increased significantly because of rising commodity prices, unfavourable currency movements, and political risk insurance costs.

Hindus cannot burn holika on their traditional dam near Success because of squatters

Dear Editor, For the past 55 years the Hindu community of Success on the East Coast Demerara, situated five miles east of the capital city of Georgetown had been faithfully burning their religious ritual Holika annually along a sideline dam west of their village peacefully according to their religious custom, but unfortunately this year they cannot, because the said reserved land was taken over by squatters.

The opposition should pass a motion rescinding the radio licences granted by Jagdeo

Dear Editor, Reference two articles in the Kaieteur News of January 20 (both blurbed on page one) the first of which was captioned ‘Guyana hogtied by Jagdeo’s secret deals‘ and the second, ‘Kaieteur, Stabroek News denied radio licences.‘ The first matter, ‘Guyana hogtied by Jagdeo’s secret deals‘ describes deals for a Marriott Hotel to be built for $52 million, the extension of the Cheddi Jagan Airport for US$140 million, the US$835 Amaila Falls hydro project and the US$40 million extension fibre optic cable to Brazil being laid by the Chinese using Chinese labour.
