first_imgEvents commemorating the 101st birth anniversary of Liberia’s ex-president William R. Tolbert, Jr. took place last week in the slain president’s hometown of Bentol, outside Monrovia, with a thanksgiving service at the Zion Praise Baptist Church.President Tolbert was born on May 13, 1913 and became president in 1971 following the death of long-serving President William V.S. Tubman to whom Mr. Tolbert was Vice President.Well wishers came from far and near to join the Tolberts as they marked the anniversary of their hero.The Vice President of the Baptist World Alliance and President of the Liberia Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention, Rev. Dr. Olu Menjay, in his words of inspiration to the congregation reflected on the legacies of the late president, challenging Liberians to keep the dream of President Tolbert alive by doing those things that will ensure a truly reconciled and harmonious nation.He called on Liberians “to stop and reflect on where we have come from” before deciding to move ahead.Unless this happens, he said “We run the risk of seeing things in ambiguous ways.”The Baptist prelate called for reconciliation, justice, job creation and care for one another.Rev. Menjay said in following the examples of the late Liberian president, Liberians should eschew “distorted vision” which he said leads to destruction.“Distorted vision led to the execution of 13 officials,” following the coup of 1980 and “distorted vision led to the killing of women and children during the civil war.”The late president’s grandnephew John Smythe thrilled the audience with songs of emotion and inspiration.Bong County Senator Jewel Howard-Taylor spoke at the ceremony, saying the day “should remind us of our own responsibilities to our nation, our families and communities.”On the back of the official program for the occasion were some of the late president’s favorite quotes he used to steer the affairs of the nation.Two of the quotations read:  “If we must rise as a nation, the masses of our people must be raised from the mats on the floors to the mattresses on the beds.”“If Liberia must be preserved, if she must bask in the sunshine of national prosperity and always be able to dictate her own policies, the strata of ignorance which is widening within her borders must be totally uprooted.”The thanksgiving service was followed by a benefit luncheon held on the grounds of the “LION HOUSE” in Bentol. The Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the William R. Tolbert, Jr. Foundation, Mrs. Christine Tolbert-Norman, says fund generated from the luncheon will support efforts to renovate the “LION HOUSE” compound and specifically, create a cyber café to be used to connect to global electronic libraries.The libraries targeted for connectivity include those of the Northwestern University, Indiana University, Sagamore Institute Research and Leadership Program, Universities and Leadership Institutes around the world, especially in Africa.Mrs. Norman sees the occasion the beginning of the restoration of the “LION HOUSE”, former homestead of President and Mrs. William R. Tolbert, Jr., which suffered severe looting and destruction during the country’s doomsdays. The Lion House building, with a lion statute before it, stands out among buildings in a town that is picking up fast following the appointment of Madam Christine Tolbert-Norman as mayor last year.The Lion House is now the formal headquarters of the WRT Jr. Foundation.A special William R. Tolbert, Jr. Lecture Series is one of activities lined up for the three day events.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,Now that the events have ended, permit me to comment on the ‘Stink and Dutty J’ouvert’ event that took place in the night of 25th May, 2018.  Editor, this event was scheduled on what is usually the night that Guyanese witness the hoisting of the national flag to mark our Independence anniversary.Editor, was this event the reason that things changed this year? Was the event the reason that the midnight flag-raising was cancelled? Why was the midnight flag-raising really moved to 14:00h in the afternoon?The reports in the local newspapers about emails from Basil Williams, the Attorney General, about promoting certain events come to mind. The email said that the PNC’s re-election committee decided to support several entertainment shows with foreign artistes to win back support, especially from youths, because the PNC believed that “this will help to motivate the younger voting population” at the elections.  Is this why the midnight flag-raising was changed?I raise this question because the PNC were given scores of free tickets for distribution by the entertainers.The reports in the local newspapers also talked about Joseph Harmon, the Minister of State, engaging churches on the need for the religious community to play a bigger role in society. He talked about “an increase in goodness and righteousness in our society, in moral re-armament” in Guyana. Was Joseph Harmon being serious about moral re-armament? How does something named ‘Stink and Dutty’ line up with moral re-armament?  But this is just my view.    The main issue, Editor, is that the flag-raising ceremony’s timings were changed.I, like many other Guyanese, expected better of President David Granger, since he is the kind of man who would prefer to be in church on Old Year’s Night instead of at a party.Sincerely,Brian Azorelast_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,It would be remiss of me to let a recent particularly glaring example of misinformation go unremarked upon, as presented by Member of Parliament Mr Jermaine Figueira. I refer to his letter captioned “All Jagdeo and his PPP party care about is votes from the sugar belt region”.Utter nonsense is my initial response, and I show why I arrived at this conclusion from the listed facts below.I wish to draw to the attention of the reading public the following facts, and then seek to humbly ask them to ponder on the veracity of this Member of Parliament; one who is not an angel, but one who was caught on national TV dishing out explicit language in the august house of Parliament on December 21, 2018 as he added to the chorus of threats against a fellow Member of Parliament. I presume his character lends to this sort of behaviour, which by extension bolsters his engagement in these blatant untruths.Here are some truths for him to learn from; it is clear he does have issues with his history.1.      In the 2013 World Development Report as published by the World Bank, it outlines the following thought, and I quote, “The downsizing of the bauxite industry in the absence of new opportunities has contributed to a deterioration in family and community relationships in Linden. Between the early 1970s and mid-1980s, the bauxite mines were cut by half, and layoff continued into the 1990s.  By 1999, formal unemployment in Linden stood at about 40 percent”.2.      Please permit me, Editor, to continue for this young man’s benefit, since he was not even born, I suppose, when these economically destructive acts were being perpetrated by the then PNC regime.  Did I say PNC?  Yes, I did; because it was the PNC who was in power when the bauxite industry was cut by half and thousands were sent into the army of the unemployed in Region 10.3.    In that report, one former bauxite worker told the World Bank Team, “They (meaning the PNC leaders in charge at the time) treat us like we don’t exist”.4.      From that experience, the World Bank Team found that there was an escalation of child violence and domestic abuse in the mining town, as the breadwinners of families were rendered into a stay-at-home people with little hope and purpose. The home was in crisis in the bauxite industry, and that did not happen under the PPP Government.  It was conceived, created and executed under a PNC Government.5.      It was the PPP — in 1999 — that saved the bauxite industry from total destruction by soliciting OMAI to contract mine between 1999 and 2004, and the process saved over 600 jobs.  These arrangements then led to a partnership between OMAI and Government.  This partnership led to OMAI injected US$10 million cash in vitally needed equipment and refurbishment works in the bauxite industry at Linden. This is what a caring Government does; not cut the industry by 50 percent, as the PNC did in the 1980s, and has again so done in the sugar belt.6.    The PPP has since injected an average of G$1.7 billion per year from 1999 to 2010 into the Linden Community Power Supply, and then an average of G$2.6 billion between 2010 and 2014, when they increased the cash transfers to the mining town.  In the last full year of a PPP Government, the cash transfers to LINDEN POWER were some G$2.8 billion.  Add that up, Jermaine; and do not use Nigel’s arithmetic.  From my detailed analysis of the individual years, it adds up to G$34 billion in subsidy being transferred to Linden by the rest of Guyana over a 15-year period.7.    As a cushion to the mess that the PNC left in the bauxite industry, the PPP launched a G$3 billion project, called LEAP, to incubate new businesses and to refurbish the infrastructure in the town.  It was fully executed.8.   Then the PPP paid off some US$40 million on the PNC borrowed SYSMIN Loans that were wasted under the PNC.  Much of these funds found their way into the pockets of the PNC leaders who were financing their relatives abroad.9.     On average, during the latter 15 years of the PPP administration, they spent over G$220 million a year on the Linden- to-Lethem road, which adds up to over $3.3 billion. This investment aided the increase in the volume of trade passing through the town, and led to many new business activities in Linden. Think 2018: What is the state of that road under this now PNC led Government?10.  Under the latter 15 years of the PPP, they spent some G$80 million per year on the Linden Technical Institute.  I am asking this question: Why was more not spent by this post-2015 PNC-led administration to expand the services at the Linden Technical Institute? Why are the children and youths of Linden being shortchanged today? Many would support such an agenda, which grants more scholarships to Lindeners, because history has taught us that Lindeners are a hardworking people who would exploit any opportunity provided to them.11. Then we must ask which Government invested more massively in the refurbishment of the Linden Water Works?  YES, the PPP; not the PNC, my brother Jermaine.How do you think all of this was being paid for – taxation from people like the sugar workers.We must all remain committed to the truth, and you are being very economical with the truth my brother Jermaine.  The PPP, like the PNC, did bring harm to the sugar belt, and I have written extensively of the harm that PPP appointees like Raj Singh and Donald Ramotar brought to the sugar belt. But let us be clear: as a developmental partner to the people, the PPP, as a team, was far superior to this incompetent and corrupt Team Granger and their PNC apparatchiks.As a young man who may be a future decision maker of Guyana, learn one thing: the truth outlives all of us, and you must be more aware of the facts.Regards,Sasenarine Singhlast_img read more

first_imgThe house where 24-year-old Mahesh Chand was fatally chopped by his fatherPolice in C Division (East Coast Demerara) have arrested a 46-year-old man after he hacked his son to death during an argument with his wife over money.Dead is 24-year-old Mahesh Chand of Lot 81 Narine Street, Annadale, East Coast Demerara.According to reports, the dead man’s parents were having an argument late Wednesday night and he intervened, siding with his mother. This apparently angered his father who picked up a cutlass and attacked the young man.Guyana Times visited the home where the incident occurred and the dead man’s mother, Nandranie Chowtie, related what transpired the night before.She recalled that on Wednesday, her husband had given her $2000 which she used to purchase things to cook and when he came home around 23:00h, he picked a fight asking for the change. The woman claimed that her husband had already picked up the money but still had her search for it as he continued his tantrum.“(Mahesh) was in his bed – he went to work and was tired – so he get up and bring $400 and tell me ‘mommy give the man this money’. My husband de done pack his bag and say he want the money because he want go away, and he say that me and my children them ah lick one head. So the boy turn and tell he that he taking advantage,” she stated.Chowtie continued that her son’s comment may have upset her husband; as such, he went into the kitchen and grabbed a cutlass. She added that the man ran into the room and chopped her son to the abdomen and to his thigh.“I didn’t know that he stab meh son so I run downstairs because I was scared he woulda chop me and I run out the yard and go hide in some bushes on the road… (My husband) go away and come back and start cuss up the boy that how he mek them and they want beat, but all the time meh son upstairs bleeding out,” the woman cried.The grieving mother said at that time, her four other children were also hiding in the backyard and out of fear, she stayed in hiding and it was not until her daughter alerted her that Mahesh was bleeding that she became aware her son was injured.“Meh daughter start call for me and tell me come see what happen to Mahesh, he deh bad so I run out (from the bushes) and start call for help and begging somebody to come with a taxi to take him to the hospital,” the distraught woman cried.She explained that despite her pleas, none of the neighbours came to assist in taking her injured son to the hospital. It was after some time has elapsed that someone transported the injured young man to seek medical attention, but it was too late.“When they were carrying him out (of the house) last night, like he been done dead because his head was on my foot and it get heavy… I didn’t had money to take taxi so we had to wait long after till when somebody come to take him to the hospital and when we reach there, they call and tell me that he dead,” the aggrieved woman lamented helplessly.The 24-year-old young man, the eldest of five, worked on a delivery truck and assisted in running the household. He was described by persons in the village as a quite, respectful and willing individual.Meanwhile, the father, 46-year-old Amarnauth Chand, is currently in Police custody assisting with the investigation. The Police in a statement on Thursday said after committing the act, the man “fled the scene but has since been apprehended and taken into custody.”<<>> was told that the man was reportedly unaware that this eldest child was dead. Moreover, this newspaper understands that this was not the first that Chand has carried out such an attack. In fact, back in March on Phagwah Day, the man attacked his wife, chopping her to the head.The woman reported the matter to the Police and was given a medical to see a doctor but there were some issues with the document and nothing came out of the matter.last_img read more

first_img 10 10 10. Nacer Chadli (Tottenham Hotspur) – read why he needs to leave, then click the arrow above, right, to see nine more players who should be thinking the same – Chadli moved to White Hart Lane in June 2013 and has left many a Spurs supporter uncertain on what role he has in the team. Far from the most technically gifted of players, the Belgium international is nonetheless effective at grabbing the odd goal, but simply doesn’t contribute enough at either end. An exit would therefore suit all involved. Latest reports have claimed Swansea City are planning a club record £15m bid for the Belgium international. 4. Marcos Rojo (Manchester United) – Much has been spoken of the players Jose Mourinho may consider dispensable as he overhauls Louis van Gaal’s tired squad. One of those the Portuguese coach could offload this summer is Rojo. The Argentina international hasn’t impressed the Old Trafford faithful, with his attitude and ability in defence questioned. With Luke Shaw returning to fitness, Rojo will be little more than a regular on the United bench next season. 9. Victor Moses (Chelsea) – Despite spending three of his four seasons on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, respectively, it’s time Moses looked to seal a permanent exit from Stamford Bridge. He often features heavily in Chelsea’s pre-season fixtures before quickly being shipped out elsewhere in the Premier League. This can’t possibly have a positive impact on his confidence. The 25-year-old needs to settle at a club. 7. Loic Remy (Chelsea) – Remy has to leave Stamford Bridge. That is unless he’s content with taking home his wages for almost zero contribution on the field. With extra competition up top from Michy Batshuayi, the Frenchman has little chance of playing a key role in Antonio Conte’s team next season. He proved at Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United that he can effectively lead an attack, but is short of the quality required for Chelsea. 10 10 10 10 8. Kevin Mirallas (Everton) – Mirallas made just 10 starts in the Premier League last season, as then manager Roberto Martinez nudged the Belgian away from his plans. A new coach in Ronald Koeman could leave the 28-year-old believing his chances of playing time may improve, but the possibility of another largely futile campaign should encourage him to say farewell to Goodison Park. He still has plenty to offer a club and shouldn’t be short of offers. 1. Theo Walcott (Arsenal) – It’s now been 10 and a half years since Walcott moved from Southampton and still supporters are waiting for the forward to settle in north London. Now 27, he should have established himself as a regular in Arsene Wenger’s side, but his role in the first team is still uncertain. He may feel at home at the Emirates, but he is now at serious risk of wasting his entire career on the sidelines at Arsenal, failing to fulfil his potential. 5. Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) – Matic may be the surprise on the list, given his importance to the Chelsea team in their title-winning 2014-15 campaign. Last season though, the 27-year-old looked a shadow of the player who rarely left the Blues’ defence exposed, with his confidence having taken a clear battering. There is the possibility that he may return to form under new manager Antonio Conte, but N’Golo Kante, recently signed in a £30m deal from Premier League champions Leicester City, is set to take over the holding midfield role, leaving Matic’s future uncertain. 10 2. Christian Benteke (Liverpool) – It may only have been a year since Liverpool activated the £32.5m release clause of Benteke, but it seems game over already. The Belgium international simply isn’t suited to Jurgen Klopp’s high-energy, high-pressing style of play, and should he spend another campaign at Anfield, his situation isn’t likely to improve. The problem may be encouraging clubs interested to table an offer close to the figure paid last summer. It’ll be a difficult period for some players over the summer.A challenging campaign combined with the uncertainty that arrives with new signings may leave plenty wondering whether their future really lies with their current club.The Premier League saw many a miserable face on the substitutes’ bench last season and the expression of those may be unchanged as the new term approaches.So which players from England’s top flight should consider an exit before the 2016/17 season kicks off?Take a look at the top 10 from the Premier League whose career could benefit from a move by viewing the slideshow above. 3. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – Throughout last season there were many suggesting Oxlade-Chamberlain’s time at the Emirates has run its course. With the new campaign approaching, that still seems very much to be the case. While some may argue injury has played its role in his poor progression and at 22 he is still yet to hit his peak, his time at the Emirates has proved largely fruitless. With so much competition in midfield for places and new signings anticipated, it’s almost impossible to envisage regular first team action for the Ox. 10 10 6. Wilfried Bony (Manchester City) – Prior to his move, it was difficult to envisage regular action for Bony at the Etihad. It’s not surprising, therefore, that he is yet to settle in Manchester. He missed 15 games through injury last season, which will only have added to his frustration at not being able to sustain a place in Manuel Pellegrini’s line up. Pep Guardiola, City’s new manager, may have plans for the Ivorian, but it’s unlikely he’ll be considered a regular starter. The 27-year-old’s stock hasn’t taken too worrying a dive though, and an exit could be the sensible choice this summer. 10last_img read more
