Strange Minister

Guyana's Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee, who appears to exist in his own world at times made the most comical review of the political opposition. While a guest on the programme, "Getting it Right" (another Pure Propaganda Programme) aired on MTV, he was asked by the host, Bheri Ramsarran, a junior minister, about the silence of the opposition. Here is a take.

Ramsarran: Minister, we have not been hearing anything from the Opposition Parties, what is the reason for this?

Rotee : Precisely this, there are can you expect to hear from nothing.

Ramsarran: But, Minister...

Rotee: No there are nothing and the Government has been doing a good job so they have to say nothing.

Mail Trail...

I am captivated and entranced by the beauty of this contestant. Miss Zamena Khan is a ideal example of feminine beauty. I will be very surprised if she dose not become at least the next Miss Guyana, and hope to see her as a contestant on the global scale in coming years. When the world looks at Miss Khan, we see the true beauty of Guyana!

Nandlall VS Glenn Lall

The blow by blow account is brought to you courtesy of Stabroek News, the home of Direct TV.

After fight rules, the bell rings...Ping Ping Ping!!!

Attorney-at-law Anil Nandlall has deemed "malicious and vindictive" a report carried in yesterday's edition of Kaieteur News (KN) and says that the report was printed because that newspaper's publisher, Glen Lall, has a vendetta against him, a claim which Lall denied when contacted by this newspaper.

The report carried in yesterday's KN was headlined, "Anil Nandlall's car sparks accident on East Bank Highway" with the sub-head saying that the police were seeking him. The report stated that a Ministry of Housing and Water vehicle was in the Providence Police Station compound following a collision with the attorney's car last week.

It stated that Nandlall was a passenger in the vehicle which was driven by someone else and following the accident an ambulance was called since they were both "covered in blood". It said that both the men "appeared to be extremely intoxicated and rudely refused the help of the ambulance". The report further stated that the police "have not been able to contact Nandlall or the driver for statements".

Yesterday, the attorney told Stabroek News that an accident indeed occurred two weeks ago in which he was a passenger in a friend's car. He said that he was not injured at all and the friend suffered a minor injury to the head. He noted that the police were informed and the matter has since been settled and the friend's car released. He denied that he and the driver were intoxicated and stating that he was an attorney practising in courts throughout Guyana declared "I am well known to the police so to allege that the police want to find me or are looking for me is completely wicked and malicious".

While it was stated in the sub-head of the news item that the police wanted to find Nandlall the text of the news item did not refer to this. Nandlall said that he had subsequently gone to the Providence Magistrate's Court, located in the same compound as the Providence Police Station and had even spoken to the rank investigating the incident.

When asked for a comment on the story when Stabroek News finally managed to contact him at 2:25 pm yesterday afternoon, Lall said that he hadn't seen his newspaper or the story as yet and "I don't have a clue what he talking about, not a clue."

Nandlall alleged "The publisher of Kaieteur News has launched a malicious and vindictive campaign against me because I represented someone in court who successfully sued the Kaieteur News and was awarded judgment in the sum of a few million dollars. On many occasions thereafter, the publisher of KN has repeatedly told me that he will 'deal with me' in his newspaper".

He said that a few days ago he had an argument with Lall and the publisher called an employee on his phone and reportedly told the employee to remind him to speak to his staff the following day "about Anil Nandlall".

The attorney further said that last Thursday while he was in court, Lall called and spoke to his secretary and "cursed and abused her and asked her to tell me that I have caused the electricity supply to be disconnected to his premises and that he will deal with me". Questioned on this Lall said that his electricity had "never been disconnected" and "I think he dreaming". "My electricity was never disconnected, I don't know what that man is talking about, maybe he dreaming", Lall asserted.

He said that he was not pursuing any "vendetta" against the attorney. "No, no I am not going down that road and I would never do that to anybody", he stated.

Meanwhile, Nandlall said that upon learning of what had transpired he called his brother, a senior functionary at the Guyana Power and Light (GPL), who he said was on leave at the time and enquired whether the electricity had indeed been disconnected.

"My brother informed me that a few weeks ago GPL officials inspected the Saffon Street office of Kaieteur News and found that the meter at that premises was tampered with. GPL then back-billed the KN for $5M which is the estimated sum consumed but not recorded because of the meter tampering", the attorney declared.

He added that the publisher went into the power company's offices and agreed to pay the sum within a given period but the time expired without the money being paid, hence the disconnection of the power to the building.

He said that following that Lall went into GPL to speak to his (Nandlall's) brother and was informed that he was on leave. "He left a card with my brother's secretary and told her to deliver that card to her boss. It was his call card. At the back was written the expletiveaves", the attorney asserted.

Lall, while reiterating that the electricity had never been cut off admitted that he had spoken to Nandlall's brother, but "I can't even remember what I tell he" adding that he didn't know that they were related. Asked whether the allegation that he had left a card with the expletive written at the back was accurate he said that he had indeed left his card. Pressed as to whether an expletive was written on the card he replied "probably". Asked to clarify that response he then said "I don't know" adding that "he did something very malicious".

Nandlall, meanwhile, declared that the publisher had jumped to the conclusion that he had caused his brother to disconnect the electricity.

"This is ridiculous and completely wrong and the publication of this article is Glen Lall pursuing a declared campaign of vendetta against me to tarnish my character and reputation. This is a man who is using his press to damnify persons maliciously and for vindictive reasons. I intend to launch legal proceedings against him", the attorney declared.

7 line up for Miss Guyana World

All in a bunch!!!

PNCR Congress held no suprises

The People's National Congress Reform has successfully concluded its 15th Biennial Congress at the Party Headquarters at Congress Place , Sophia.

The Congress was addressed by the Leader of the Party, Robert Corbin, M.P. in a major speech in which he outlined a two year programme of reform and re-positioning of the Party to retool it for re-establishing its momentum and preparations for returning to office at the next general election. Topics included:

Ø the Party’s machinery, organisation structure, ideology, tactics, polices and manifesto;
Ø the Party Secretariat’s technology and work practices;
Ø getting closer to young people’s concerns;
Ø a code of conduct for party leaders;
Ø introducing “fresh and talented” young faces to leadership positions in the Party;
Ø standing firmly against crime and corruption;
Ø Economic empowerment for vulnerable communities.

These issues were discussed in detail in workshop groups and the party executive was mandated to put the decisions into an action plan to be submitted to the next general council of the Party.

The Congress also discussed several motions from local and overseas groups. Motions debated included Party discipline, changing the constitutional role of the Party’s Treasurer and creating greater accountability.

The Congress concluded with a rich cultural programme which featured top artistes as well as performances by young people from several regions.

The main focus of attention was the election of Office Bearers for the next biennium.

The election results announced today by the returning officer Attorney-at-Law, Joseph Harmon were as follows:-

Robert Corbin

Winston Murray

Basil Williams
Volda Lawrence

15 members of the Central Executive
Amna Ally, Aubrey Norton, Clarissa Rheil, Oscar Clarke , George Norton, E. Lance Carberry, Florence Bourne, Melanie Cornette, Clement Corlette, Deryck Bernard , Mervyn Williams, Aubrey Armstrong, Mortimer Mingo, Ernest Elliot, Carl Max Hanoman.

The Congress was a fitting commencement of the 50th anniversary of the Party’s existence.


The Vicent Alexander team wisely did not contest any of the positions in the party because the party's list was padded with mad people, dead people and PPP Ministers. The Alexander team should not of gone as afr as they did, since political careers were at stake. Don't belive us?

Firstly, The PNCR is drafting an amendment to the recall bill which will also make it possible for memebers of the Elections Commssion to be recalled. Still don't get it? Vincent Alexander sits on the Commission.

Secondly, as stated in the statement from Congress Place (above), the party is placing emphasis on discipline, so the wayward bunch could expect the hammer. There is a scorned leader in place.

The three main persons from the gang of defactors are Aleander, a former PNCR MP; Deborah Backer and James McAllister, two current MPs.

We could see the flashing headlines...

Our prediction is that Vincent A"licks"ander will be recalled as punishment, while Deborah will no longer be a "Backer " of the PNCR and James MACK-allister will be seen as an imposter within the party. All of this because they attempted to topple a political dynamite, who is about to self distruct.

That's the final word...
