THE PSC CALLS UPON THE NATION TO
RAISE ITS COLLECTIVE VOICE TO DEMAND UNCONDITIONAL BIPARTISAN ACTION AGAINST THE VIOLENCE
The Private Sector Commission extends its deepest sympathy to the families and relatives of all of those who have senselessly lost their lives and suffered injury as a result of the horrific events which overtook the people of Bartica on Sunday last.
The Commission joins with the nation in expressing its outrage over and in condemning these bestial and malevolent killings.
The Commission wishes to commend the President for immediately summoning and the parliamentary opposition for their public commitment to participate in a national consultation to address the matter of national security. The Commission believes that such a consultation and commitment is long overdue.
The Private Sector Commission stands ready to fully participate in an ongoing and unconditional dialogue of all of the nation’s major stakeholders for the purpose of arriving at a national consensus in the formulation of a strategic security plan for the nation which will have the full and unqualified support of everyone concerned in its implementation.
The Private Sector Commission, in the meantime, urges that as a people and a nation, we remain resolute and focused in standing together in the face of this brutal assault on our peace, well-being and security.N.B It is the private sector that is refusing to assist the government in its crime stoppers programme, but yet they stand ready to assist. Everybody playing games, while the poor innocent coolie people perishing.
