President joins kite flyers in National Park

Having distributed more than 2,000 kites over the past two weeks, President David Granger yesterday indulged a bit in the Easter tradition during a walkabout in the National Park.

According to a Ministry of the Presidency press release, in brief comments to the media, the President noted that he has been to several parts of the country over the past two weeks distributing kites to children.

“I am sure that the children from up the Pomeroon to right up the Demerara River to Malali, have gotten kites all the way to the East Coast Demerara, Parika, Essequibo Islands, so I have had great fun meeting children and I am sure today they will be flying kites all over Guyana.
