The Guyana Revenue AuthorityStaffers of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) were evacuated from their Camp Street, Georgetown office on Thursday morning following another bomb scare.A report of a bomb being placed on the premises was received just after 09:00h and an alarm was immediately raised to clear the building. Shortly after, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) was deployed to assess the situation.By the end of the day, employees had returned to the building where they resumed operations as per normal. This is the latest of many threats made against public and educational institutions over the past month.The threats started earlier this year when the School of Nations on New Market Street, Georgetown was targeted. The following evening, the school’s Director, Dr Brian O’Toole was shot twice at his home by an unknown person, but he survived the near-death experience.This act came with what was considered warning signs from a social media account, believed to be created by students of the said institution. The threatening posts started on WhatsApp and moved to Facebook, where threats were made on the lives of students. In one instance, two persons were mentioned in the online posts.However, Queen’s College, the Bishops’ High School and the University of Guyana received similar messages, causing concern among parents for the safety of their children. The University had postponed all classes after a second bomb threat was directed at the institution. It was the second consecutive day in which threats were issued, resulting in a visit from both the Guyana Fire Service and the GPF to conduct a thorough search of the premises. Nothing was found. A female student of the Turkeyen campus was charged for allegedly sending threatening messages that a bomb was placed on campus. She has since denied the allegation and was currently on trial.Just last month, news arose that someone threatened to blow up several sections of the Turkeyen campus by reportedly setting off bombs at various locations at the tertiary institution.The GPF, Guyana Fire Service and the University’s security were on high alert and locked down the institution but no explosives were unearthed.

The interactive //hapo museum at Freedom Park outside Pretoria is a place for South Africans to consolidate and preserve their freedom heritage in an all-encompassing and inclusive manner, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said at the museum’s opening in April 2013.“//hapo”, Khoi for “a dream”, derives from the Khoi proverb “//hapo ge //hapo tama /haohasib dis tamas ka i bo”, which means “a dream is not a dream until it is shared by the entire community”.Motlanthe said the concept of //hapo was instrumental for inculcating a culture of unity and democracy among South Africans.He said a common consciousness had to be developed among all South Africans, such that the country’s national symbols, including its flags and national anthem, reflected the socio-economic development of the country.“Understanding this complexity, it is important to develop spaces for people to tune into their consciousness, providing them with the space to freely fulfil themselves and to cultivate an identity through guaranteeing their freedoms of expression, religion, thought, conscience, belief, opinion and association.”The //hapo museum tells the story of the southern African region dating back 3.6- billion years in an interactive manner. “//hapo is a centre of interactive learning, in particular of learning about the journey to peace in our land,” Motlanthe said.Along the way, this journey progressing through the early wars of dispossession, such as Khoikhoi-Dutch war in the 1500s; the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck in the Cape in 1652; the Third War of Dispossession between the Khoisan and colonial authorities in the 1800s; the South African War, previously known as Anglo Boer War, and the anti-apartheid struggle – all of which help define the freedoms South Africans enjoy today.“Generations to come will use this centre to learn about their origins and therefore understand the uniqueness of being a South African citizen and [of a] people who come from diverse quarters of the world but are despite this united in diversity,” Motlanthe said.“Certainly this centre will allow us to deal with all that is good and bad about our past, conscious not to dwell on it or repeat its mistakes while at the same time being steadfast in drawing important lessons to unite us as we foster a new and common national heritage.”The narration of the country’s history in this way would help South Africans to appreciate “that the freedom we enjoy today is no exclusive preserve of any one social grouping but a proud heritage of all South Africans,” Motlanthe said.It would also help to “free our minds from the bounds of mental imprisonment, allowing us the necessary singular focus to tackling the socio-economic conditions of poverty, unemployment and inequality that constrain the realisation of a better life for all South Africans”.SAinfo reporter
Barely two days after senior Kannada journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered in Bengaluru, a journalist in Bihar’s Arwal district was shot at and robbed of ₹1 lakh on Thursday by two motorcycle-borne assailants. The incident took place 60 km from here.Police officials said Pankaj Mishra, who was working for the local edition of Hindi newspaper Rashtriya Sahara, was returning after withdrawing money from a bank when he was attacked.Mr. Mishra was later admitted to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) and is said to be out of danger.Dilip Kumar, Arwal Superintendent of Police told The Hindu that the assailants fired twice at Mr. Mishra. When he collapsed on the road the assailants fled with the money.One of the two robbers, Kundan Mahto, was later arrested, Mr. Kumar said. Police are searching for the other assailant, Ambika Mahto.Asked if it was a case of robbery, the SP said, “it will be known only after the investigation.” However, local police officials said, “prima facie it’s a case of robbery or some personal enmity.”The injured journalist was first taken to a primary health centre from where he was shifted to the Arwal Sadar hospital. Later, he was referred to PMCH, said the SP.The journalist alleged that the attackers had links with a local ruling party JD(U) legislator.Speaking to a news channel, Mr. Mishra said that since he had written several stories against Kundan Mahto, son of a personal assistant to the JD(U) MLA, in his newspaper, he targeted him.Earlier in 2016, a senior journalist in Siwan district Rajdeo Ranjan who was working with the Hindi newspaper Hindustan, was gunned down, a few yards from his office, allegedly by henchmen of former Siwan RJD MP Mohd Shahabuddin.
