Prime Minister Samuel Hinds on Wednesday handed over a Jialing motorcycle to Radio Paiwomak, 97.1 FM, which operates out of Annai, North Rupununi to assist in gathering of community news.

The Government Information Agency said that Hinds in his remarks said that the motorcycle donation was realised through his office and the Jailing Motorcycle agent in Guyana.

He said that last October when he visited Annai, an employee of the radio station approached him and asked for help to make it easier for him to travel in the savannah areas.

Finance Officer of the North Rupununi District Development Board, Rosie George accepted the motorcycle on behalf of the radio station and expressed her gratitude to the Prime Minister and the Jailing Agent, GINA said.

She added that the motorcycle would aid the dissemination of up-to-date news in the communities, by allowing media personnel to visit the villages and gather information. The radio station operates out of the Bina Hill Institute in Annai, Region Nine.
