The citizens of Guyana should not expect Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan to resign after the horrific jail break. Ministers in Guyana do not resign for corruption, mismanagement or when there is a public outcry over their performance. Instead, they are ‘reshuffled’. Should a reshuffle be imminent I would like to make two recommendations for two cards in the pack. Minster Ramajattan be removed with immediate effect and a competent person preferably with a military background be given the task of transforming the Ministry of Public Security. Retired Major General Joe Singh comes to mind. He has a sound military background and experience with management within the private sector.
Minister Jordan has tried to justify taxing education for our nation’s children when over fifty per cent of students cannot pass the National Grade Six Assessments. Our political future looks dim and now the future of thousands of children looks even dimmer. Minister Carl Greenidge who overlooked the transformation of Guyana’s economy in the late 1980s would be my preferred choice.
Dear Editor, Reference is being made to the symposium held by the University of Guyana Tain campus that dealt with the Guyana Constitution, which thankfully continues to receive attention by Stabroek News, as it aids further conversations, knowledge and awareness of this instrument as some clamour for reform.
Dear Editor, It has become necessary to underscore the fact that a new trend seems to be developing, whereby persons wishing to etch their names in the public psyche latch onto a prominent individual in society, which, more often than not these days, is former president and current Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo – an art that some could argue has been perfected by columnist, Freddie Kissoon.
Dear Editor, Having read the report ‘Constitutional compliance needed, not reform’ -Nandlall’ (SN, September 22) I must say there is full agreement with the views expressed by PPP/C Member of Parliament Anil Nandlall.
Dear Editor, I believe it is the mandate of any citizen of the land, who expects veracity in the leaders they have chosen, if they are in possession of facts, to expose any politician for duplicitous statements or actions.
