‘Reckless’ shooting incidents should be investigated

Dear Editor, Today’s SN (‘Sophia mother drops dead after cops open fire in area‘) and yesterday’s SN front page  (‘Werk-en-Rust residents accuse cops of reckless shooting during chase‘) convey some disturbing news concerning the police which I trust would be thoroughly investigated and corrective action taken to build confidence and trust between the police and law abiding-citizens.

Concern about illegal Brazilians in the mining industry

Dear Editor, I would like to express my concern about illegal Brazilians mining in Guyana. I have been around this industry for the last 25 years, and can say that illegal Brazilian miners are given an opportunity to flourish here because some of the mines officers employed by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission allow themselves to be distracted from their duties by money or gold, and look the other way.

Habitat for Humanity grateful to private sector organizations

Dear Editor, Permit me a few lines to express profound gratitude on behalf of the Board, management, staff and homepartners of Habitat for Humanity Guyana Inc (HFH Guyana ) for continuous support of several local and international private sector organizations who have exemplified social responsibility and concern for the housing needs of poor families in Guyana.

All in the same boat

In celebrating Arrival Day, notwithstanding the critical importance of commemorating the contributions of all of our ancestors to the building of our nation – still a work in progress – we run the risk, as is recognised by some, of emphasising our differences rather than focusing on our similarities.
