Whitewater, Yarakinta get land titles

President Bharrat Jagdeo handed over land grants to the Whitewater and Yarakinta communities when he addressed toshaos at the Guyana International Conference Centre on his return from the IMF/World Bank meeting.

According to a Government Information Agency (GINA) press release Jagdeo told the toshaos, who had assembled for five days for the 2007 National Toshaos Conference hosted last week, that the government is working towards developing the communities in areas including health, education and information technology. “We hope that within the next few years all of your communities would be connected to the internet,” he said.

GINA said the land grants now bring the total number of titles handed over to Amerindian communities to 93.
