Good Hope, Hand-en-Veldt Mahaica sideline dam in bad condition for over 15 years

Dear Editor,

The Good Hope, Hand-en-Veldt Mahaica sideline dam (Jagg/Saridam) needs resurfacing with bitumen. It has been in a bad condition for over 15 years. Its only access bridge has two broken boards.

The sideline dam is the only one in the area that interconnects directly with the old road and the East Coast Highway. No one of substance lives in this area, which is why I am highlighting this problem from a layman’s perspective on behalf of the community. I am hoping that the RDC Region 4 or central government does something about it. Dozens of vehicles traverse this dam daily.

I want to thank you for publishing my letter regarding my landline/internet malfunction on August 21; two days later four technicians came and fixed it.


Yours faithfully,

Jaio M Ramcharitar

How can the government expect the people to accept the basis on which Granger made a unilateral decision?

Dear Editor, A statement released by the Ministry of the Presidency on Thursday (October 19, 2017) sought to explain the basis on which President David Granger moved to unilaterally appoint the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (Gecom), in the person of retired Justice, James Patterson.

Granger is saying one thing and doing the opposite

Dear Editor, The unilateral selection and appointment by President Granger of Justice Patterson to be the new Chairman of the Elections Commission takes the country backwards for decades.

City Hall in a gentler light

Dear Editor,   Recently I was privileged to experience a different side of City Hall. 

Gecom and democracy are in crisis

Dear Editor, According to the tinkered and flawed 1980 constitution, the President can unilaterally select someone to be chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission under the following circumstances: (i) The Leader of the Opposition fails to submit a list or (ii) the list submitted by the Leader of the Opposition is unacceptable to the President.
