Piglet fraud

Dear Editor,

We have been members of the Guyana Swine Producers Co-op Society Ltd for over two years. We joined the co-op with the promise that each member would get piglets and feed to breed high-grade piglets for the local and overseas market with a grant from the Government of Guyana. Eighty piglets arrived in Guyana sometime in June 2016 which were to be shared among poultry members of the co-op. They were to get two each with the agreement that each member who did not get would be given two piglets each from the members who received first.

Up to now we are still waiting for our piglets that we paid five thousand dollars for, and all we are getting is promises and more promises. We decided to pay a visit to the society’s farm. We discovered that each of them took fifteen piglets for themselves and left most of us with nothing; we are calling on the government to investigate this fraud.

Yours faithfully,

(Name and address provided)

Letter by Councillor Kuppen is riddled with inaccuracies

Dear Editor, Please refer to a letter which appeared in the Saturday, February 17, of Stabroek News captioned ‘Town Clerk is in control with the blessing of the Mayor and some Councillors.’ As we examined the contents of the letter written by the Councillor, we recognized that it is riddled with inaccuracies and it is not a true representation of the facts.

Impressed by publication on early childhood development

Dear Editor, Influenced as I am and have been since my early career as a school teacher that the focus of our basic educational pursuits should be both academic and attitudinal, I was recently impressed by a publication I chanced upon in my daughter’s home in Toronto (she herself is a School Superintendent with the Toronto District School Board).
