Towards consensus...

Government will continue engaging Opposition on Anti-Money Laundering – Edghill By Vanessa Narine GOVERNMENT will continue to engage the Opposition with a view to reach a consensus, so that Guyana can pass a Caribbean Action Task Force (CFATF) compliant Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) (Amendment) Bill. This was stated by Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Bishop Juan Edghill yesterday, at the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) press conference in Freedom House, on Robb Street, Georgetown. He said:“The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) would like to, once again, express its profound disappointment at the continuous action of the combined Opposition to place Guyana and Guyanese in the path of the impending dangerous consequences following the non-passage of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Bill. “…their actions have made it pellucid that such positions articulated were mere exercises in political rhetoric and deception, even for their own supporters. Edghill reiterated the views outlined by President Donald Ramotar, on the positions of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC), stressing that APNU’s three proposed amendments require national consultations because of their implications. THREE PROPOSITIONS The three propositions seek to change the entire governing apparatus of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU); remove the Attorney General wherever that name appears and replace it with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and vest a Police or Customs officer with a power to seize currency from any person, anywhere in Guyana, if those officers have reason to believe that the currency is the proceeds of crime or will be used to finance crime. Minister Edghill said:“The dogmatic approach which APNU continues to take is consistent with its position of not wanting any movement on the Bill.” He added that the Government is ready to give the AFC the Public Procurement Commission (PPC), providing that Cabinet can maintain its no-objection role, a stance on which the AFC has said it will not budge. The Procurement (Amendment) Bill 2013, read a first time in the National Assembly last November, aims to amend the 2003 Principal Procurement Act by making changes to Section 54 by deleting subsection six, effectively restoring Cabinet’s no-objection part. That section deals with Cabinet’s involvement in reviewing

the award of procurement contracts and the phasing out of its functions with the establishment of a PPC, in the interest of decentralising the process. Subsection six states that Cabinet’s involvement shall cease upon the establishment of the PPC, except in relation to those matters referred to in subsection one which are pending. The AFC has since proposed that instead of a no-objection, Government can forward their positions on contracts to the PPC itself, something President Ramotar said has to be examined.

Governments around the world are being sanctioned by there not willing or they have not put in place, mechanisms to ensure that their country is compliant. In Guyana, we have a Government that wants to put in place that kind of architecture,” Edghill said. He said Guyana was unable to report on any legislative successes with the Bill, it having failed to pass in the National Assembly before the February 28 deadline. “Guyana missed another deadline, the latest being February 28, 2014, following irresponsible actions of the Opposition not to support the Bill. The PPP, therefore, places the responsibility for whatever consequences Guyanese may encounter, solely at the feet of the Opposition,” the minister said.

HARSH CONSEQUENCES Edghill said:“Our Party reiterates that both APNU and the AFC have deliberately not taken into consideration the harsh consequences the non-passage of this Bill would bring to bear on the people of this nation. “It must be asked, why would both parties continue to ignore the related challenges their own supporters can face? “The effects of the non-passage Minister Juan Edghill of this Bill are not confined to only members of the PPP and the actions of the Opposition are further indicative of their wanton disregard for the welfare of our people. “…given the position taken by the Opposition, the PPP is compelled to ask, again, why these elected representatives who profess to have the welfare of Guyanese at heart, including their own supporters, willfully and maliciously place all in harm’s way?” The Government and the Opposition remain gridlocked on these matters. “Why should a Government have to sell its soul, put its people at harm, in horse trading just to get a piece of legislation passed?”Edghill asked. He maintained that the importance of the legislation is not being kept in focus and charged that the Opposition is holding out with their “blackmail” politics. The minister said:“This is not a piece of legislation that will only affect the Government or only affect the PPP supporters…even the APNU supporters will be affected. “…this demand, as if you’re coming from this high moral ground of righteousness that we want this PPC…it’s not only Government supporters will feel the squeeze. AFC supporters will, if we are to be sanctioned.” Edghill disclosed that a report was submitted to CFATF on February 28, as was required by all CFAFT members, but only addressed one component of compliance, the non-legislative component. “More particularly as it relates to the non-legislative work and, of course, CFATF is aware of the challenges we are having here.

PROFOUNDLY UNFORTUNATE He insisted that it is, therefore, profoundly unfortunate that, in this context, the Opposition would continue to exhibit a wanton disregard for nationhood. Guyana has already been blacklisted regionally by CFATF, following its November statement to its members and the latter said this country must therefore pass the relevant legislation and implement all the outstanding issues within its Action Plan including: .....................* fully criminalising money laundering and terrorist financing offences; * addressing all the requirements on beneficial ownership; * strengthening the requirements for suspicious transaction reporting, international co-operation and the freezing and confiscation of terrorist assets as well as * fully implementing the United Nations conventions. “Members are, therefore, called upon to consider implementing countermeasures to protect their financial systems from the ongoing money laundering and terrorist financing risks emanating from Guyana.” CFATF Advisor Roger Hernandez, during his recent visit on February 21, said Guyana could take as long as 18 months to two years to get off the regional blacklist. However, Edghill maintained that Guyana faces the added risk of being internationally blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) by not having the AML/CFT Bill passed. “Unfortunately, the intransigence of the Opposition has led to Guyana missing the February 28, deadline. Guyanese must remain cognisant of these actions by the Opposition which are intrinsically designed to wreck the economy, to bring hardships to all, including their supporters, as it continues to foster a political agenda which is counterproductive to the development of Guyana,” he said. The Parliamentary Special Select Committee is next scheduled to meet on Wednesday to continue its work. Between February and May, it is expected that there will be dialogue and discussions with CFATF and the current Administration, with regards to the preparation of the report for CFATF Plenary. If the May Plenary is dissatisfied with Guyana's progress, CFATF’s November 2013 statement already provides the decision for the country's referral to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) which meets again in June 2014.

Government will not fund City Hall deficit budget


- Minister Whittaker

By Vanessa Narine

THE City Hall Budget was presented yesterday with a projected deficit of some $246.7M but Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Mr. Norman Whittaker declared that the Government will not fund any deficit budgets. Speaking at the ruling People’s Progressive Party (PPP) weekly press conference, in Freedom House, Robb Street, Georgetown, he criticised the City Hall Executive for improper management of its resources. He said: “Our Government recognised this laxity, on the part of the City Council, many years ago and that is why, notwithstanding the fact that the existing legislation allows the Council to prepare and approve its own annual estimates, Government has sought, through the sector ministry to ensure that council’s annual budget estimates emanates out of a process of consultation with residents and focuses, inter alia, in providing core services, such as proper drainage, efficient solid waste management, vending in markets and market tarmac under good sanitary conditions, removal of thick vegetation ensuring that the incidents of breeches of building codes are addressed. “…we have sought to work with the Council to get the body to address the inadequacies and inefficiencies highlighted in the Keith Burrowes’ Report. These include issues of transparency of procurement, accountability, debt collection, management etc.” DISTANCE ITSELF The minister noted that the City Council, with Mayor Hamilton

Green at its helm, has sought to distance itself from “this transparent arrangement” that is aimed at assisting the Council to do what is right for the citizens of Georgetown and, by extension, Guyana. “The budget is merely an exercise of adhocracy,” he emphasised. The 2014 Budget averages revenue collection of $2.05 billion and has a total estimated expenditure of $2.3 billion, which gives rise to the $246.7M deficit. “You have to cut your coat,” the minister advised. According to Whittaker, the Budget, which was submitted to his ministry, has questionable allocations. He noted that it reflects increases for several items related to remuneration of staffers but there were no increases allocated to ensure proper delivery of core services. The minister went on: “A mere 28 percent of this inflow (revenue) is set aside for capital works.” Whittaker pointed out that a significant portion of the Budget is related to staffing expenses and there is an allocation for a further rise in staffing capacity, when the current complement is itself underutilised. He said: “Employment cost and employment overheads stand at 56 percent of total anticipated inflows and, while overtime continues to be featured high in the budget, the budgeted staff strength, which in the ministry's 2013 review was already high, increased by four percent for 2014, that is, the Council plans to add more numbers to the already underutilised staff. “Provisions are made for increases of Councillors’ stipend and allowances as well as gratuity for a poorly performing Council.”

The minister remarked that the proportions of the allocations are “unheard” of. He said: “The Council, in its 2014 budget proposal, plans to expend $2.3 billion out of anticipated revenue inflow of $2.05 billion. NO EXPLANATION “In other words, the Council plans to spend almost $250M more than what it plans to receive. There is no explanation as to how the Council will finance this deficit. “…the Council plans to spend almost 70 percent of the citizens’ rates and taxes for 2014 on themselves and staff with a current liability of $1.3 billion, including debts to Guyana Power & Light, National Insurance Scheme and Guyana Revenue Authority.” The minister stated that the current Administration has always viewed the budget as an “important planning and management” tool, which emanates out of a vision for development of self, community, organisation or country and clearly sets out goals. He said: “It is, therefore, necessarily implies that, without a vision, any budget prepared leads that individual or community or organisation or country along a path to anywhere and more often than not, to nowhere. “A quick glance around the City of Georgetown, for which Mayor Green and Councillors have responsibility, could only lead us to deduce that this Council has no plans for improving the conditions under which the citizen of Georgetown live and the aesthetics of the City.” Whittaker said it is clear that several inadequacies continue to be evidenced in City Hall’s undertakings.

City Council budget presented amidst much criticism The main expenditure, apart from core services, is on wages and salaries which take up about 61 percent of total collections. The monthly bill for Guyana Power & Light (GPL) Inc. is $20,332,000, of which $15M is for street lighting; $3.3M for pumps and $2M for City Hall’s buildings.

By Telesha Ramnarine CHAIRMAN of the Finance Committee of the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC), Mr. Junior Garrett presented the municipality’s 2014 Budget estimates yesterday. The projected expenditure for the year is $2,302,189,532 as against the expected revenue of $2,055,467,116, representing a shortfall of $246,722,416. The presentation was done at City Hall amidst criticisms by some officers, in the presence of Mayor Hamilton Green, other councillors and members of the public. One of the critics, Town Clerk, Carol Sooba remarked that it is a “highly deficit budget” that includes all sorts of nonsensical things. The expected revenue for the Town Clerk’s Department is $14M, as against the projected expenditure of $328,472,230; for the City Constabulary $4M as against $370,899,360; for the Treasury Department $1,643,500,000 as against $120,523,739; for the Public Health Department $58,495,000 as against $219,840,899; for the Solid Waste Management Department $3,225,000 as against $386,926,135; for the City Engineer’s Department $37M as against $656,685,412; and for the Markets Department $295,216,516 as against $218,841,757. According to Garrett, the target areas for 2014 include solid waste management, drainage, the cemetery, markets and public health.

Russian markets plunge as Putin tightens Crimea grip (Reuters) – RUSSIA paid a heavy financial price on Monday for its military intervention in neighboring Ukraine, with stocks, bonds and the rouble plunging as President Vladimir Putin’s forces tightened their grip on the Russian-speaking Crimea region. The Moscow stock market fell by 11.3 percent, wiping nearly $60 billion off the value of Russian companies in a day, and the central bank spent $10 billion of its reserves to prop up the rouble as investors took fright at escalating tensions with the West over the former Soviet republic. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden warned Moscow of “increasing political and economic isolation” if it did not withdraw troops and the European Union threatened unspecified “targeted measures” unless Russia returns its forces to their bases and opens talks with Ukraine’s new government. In his first public appearance for nearly a week, Putin flew to watch military maneuvers in western Russia in what

appeared designed as a show of strength. Russia’s Black Sea fleet denied reports that it had given Ukrainian forces in Crimea an ultimatum to surrender by early on Tuesday or face a military assault, Interfax news agency said after earlier reporting such a threat. The State Department said that if true, an ultimatum would be a dangerous escalation of the crisis. The United States was likely to move down the path of imposing sanctions, it said. Ukraine’s acting president said Russia’s military presence in Crimea was growing, without giving details, and Ukrainian officials said Russia was building up armored vehicles on its side of a narrow stretch of water closest to Crimea after Putin declared at the weekend he had the right to invade his neighbor to protect Russian interests and citizens. Both sides have so far avoided bloodshed, but the market turmoil highlighted damage the crisis could wreak on Russia’s vulnerable economy, making it harder to balance

the budget and potentially undermining business and public support for Putin. Russian Deputy Economy Minister Andrei Klepach said market “hysteria” would subside but strains with Brussels and Washington - which has threatened visa bans, asset freezes and trade curbs - would continue to weigh on the economy. On the ground in Perevalnoye, half way between the Crimean capital of Simferopol and the Black Sea, hundreds of Russian troops in trucks and armored vehicles - without national insignia on their uniforms - were surrounding two military compounds, confining Ukrainian soldiers, who have refused to surrender, as virtual prisoners. Ukraine called up reservists on Sunday after Putin’s action provoked what British Foreign Secretary William Hague called “the biggest crisis in Europe in the twenty-first century”. At a meeting in Brussels, EU foreign ministers condemned Russia’s military ac-

tion and called for international mediation to avert further escalation. EU leaders will hold an emergency summit on Thursday

to discuss how to help Ukraine. An EU statement said that “in the absence of de-escalating steps by Russia”, the

28-nation bloc would decide on steps such as suspending talks with Moscow on visa liberalization.

Islamist militants kill 31 more in northeast Nigeria (Reuters) - ISLAMIST insurgents have killed at least 31 people in a village in northeast Nigeria, a lawmaker said on Monday, taking the death toll from three days of attacks to 116 as soldiers struggle to contain raging violence. Insurgents have killed more than 400 people in just over a month, security sources say, making it one of the deadliest periods in the Islamist sect Boko Haram’s insurgency, which began with an uprising in Borno state in 2009. Gunmen stormed Mafa village in Borno, around 50 km (30 miles) east of the state capital Maiduguri, at around 8 p.m. on Sunday, shooting fleeing civilians and throwing explosives at occupied houses, witness Auwalu Gunda said. State senator Ahmed Zannah said 29 civilians died in the raid and two policemen were killed in a bomb blast on Monday while they were trying to remove bodies and question survivors about the initial attack. Twin bomb blasts in Maiduguri killed at least 46 people on Saturday evening while, around 50 km away, dozens of gunmen were razing a farming village, shooting dead another 39, as Boko Haram increasingly focuses on the civilian population. President Goodluck Jonathan launched an intensified military campaign almost a year ago to crush Boko Haram but the bloodshed has since escalated, albeit with violence largely contained in the

sect’s northeast stronghold. Zannah said the military had abandoned their posts in Mafa, along with most of the women and children in the village, after the insurgents sent prior warning of the attack. “All the soldiers in Mafa fled before the attack, maybe because they could not stand the superior weapons of the Boko Haram,” Zannah told journalists, saying this was a common complaint aimed at soldiers by victims of attacks. The military did not respond to requests for comment but has previously denied soldiers flee from combat. Opponents of Christian southerner Jonathan are becoming increasingly critical of his failure to stem the violence in the majority Muslim north, where his main opponent in next year’s presidential election will likely originate from. Boko Haram has killed thousands in its attempt to create an Islamic state in a religiously mixed country of 170 million people. It is the biggest security threat in Africa’s top oil exporter and continent’s second largest economy. Western governments are concerned about groups such as Boko Haram linking up with al Qaeda-linked cells in other countries in the Sahel region, such as Mali, where France sent troops a year ago to oust Islamist militants who had seized control.

Gangs on girls, not gay sex

At the end of the march, dozens of activists clashed with riot police

Venezuelan opposition keeps protests despite carnival season

(BBC News) THOUSANDS of opposition demonstrators in Venezuela have marched through the streets of Caracas in new protests against the government. At the end of the march, activists clashed with police in the opposition strongholds of Chacao and Altamira. President Nicolas Maduro extended the traditional carnival holidays until the end of this week and asked Venezuelans to rest and celebrate peace. At least 17 people have been killed in more than three weeks of unrest. Opposition leaders have

asked people to ignore the carnival season, when many Venezuelans traditionally go to the seaside. They are demanding the release of dozens of demonstrators and activists arrested since last month, including high-profile politician Leopoldo Lopez. The opposition blames the left-wing policies of Mr Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, for high inflation, rampant crime and the shortage of many staples. Mr Maduro says the opposition has encouraged violent protests as part of a right-wing coup plot.

3 more killings push murder toll to 84 (Trinidad Guardian) THREE men are now dead after three separate shooting incidents beginning Friday night that took place in Carenage, Valencia and Point Cumana, pushing the murder toll to 84. In the first murder, around 7.15 on Friday night Clinton “Mooney” John, 25, was shot dead outside his girlfriend’s home at Benedictine Street, Carenage. A gunman walked up to John and fired, police said. After John began running the gunman chased him, firing repeatedly until John collapsed. He died on the scene. Police say his killing was gang-related.   In the second killing, 26-year-old Keron Sampson died at the Sangre Grande District Hospital after he was shot near his Bertrand Trace, Valencia home on Friday night. Sampson and his cousin went to a Chinese restaurant near his home around 9.50 pm and while there they were approached by a man who opened fire on them, hitting Sampson twice in the left shoulder.  After being shot Sampson ran home and collapsed in his living room, where he was picked up and taken to hospital, where he later died. The killer

escaped in a waiting car. Police said they have no motive for the killing. And Sunday an unidentified man was discovered dead at Gardier Street, Point Cumana, around 4.45 am. Police said the man, who was not from the area, was wearing a grey pants, white T-shirt and a black cap.  Residents heard gunshots and found the man’s body lying in the road. Police are yet to determine a motive but believed he was lured to his death.

He called on Venezuelans to embrace the traditional carnival season, which has been extended to seven days. “Happiness will conquer the embittered. The Venezuelan people have won because happiness and peace have conquered,” he said on national television. But the opposition says it does want to lose momentum. “Nobody is tired here and we will fight until the government falls”, protester Carlos Eduardo Vega told the AP news agency. On Sunday, the government released 41 people arrested during clashes between demonstrators and police in opposition strongholds in eastern Caracas. Last week, US Secretary of State John Kerry said he was working with Colombia and other countries to form a mediation strategy for Venezuela’s political crisis. Mr Kerry said it would be “very difficult” for the two sides to come to an agreement without assistance. Political divisions have deepened in Venezuela after the election of Mr Maduro last April. He succeeded Mr Chavez, who died of cancer after 14 years in office. Henrique Capriles, who lost the vote by a narrow margin, accused the government of electoral fraud.

(Trinidad Guardian) MEMBERS of the lesbian/bi-sexual/gay/transgender (LBGT) community are now fearing they will be targeted by gangsters, and feel their lives are in danger. The latest news in the ongoing gay/heterosexual debate, fuelled by statements made by artist LeRoy Clarke, comes from a group that lobbies for LBGT equality, I Am One. Head of the group Jason Jones said there is great concern among members about Clarke’s statement that homosexuality was used as a gang initiation rite. Clarke, in an earlier T&T Guardian interview, said emasculated gang members use the gun as a symbol of their manhood. Asked what this claim was based on, he said people had told him this. Jones said: “I am calling on Mr Clarke, as a proper elder, to make a full apology and retraction of the statement and say he made a major mistake and let’s move on.  “I am very concerned about the gay community. The comment has made the LBGT community a target of gangsters. Some of the less intelligent gangsters may want to prove they are not gay and attack the LBGT community. It’s a dangerous statement.” An agitated Jones told the Guardian there was no documentation of homosexuality being used as an initiation rite anywhere in the world. “There is the first blood initiation, where you go out and kill somebody. Gang culture feeds on machismo.” Jones also dismissed Clarke’s claim that he had received a “semi-threat/warning” from someone who called him and said to watch it, his career could be at stake because of the statements he made. “In the same way he made up the crap about gunslingers, he made up this.” Jones rejected Clarke’s comments as the rantings of “a man who no longer has any relevance in the society. “Now gay people are threatening him? I don’t get it. It’s all a little crazy.”  Asked to comment on the biblical position Clarke said he supports, Jones said, “T&T is made up of 26 different religions. There are different beliefs.” Colin Robinson of Coalition Advocating for Inclusion of Sexual Orientation (CAISO) said he and his organisation would never threaten Clarke, and a lot of gay men are very hurt about what Clarke said because they had befriended him.  “They loved and supported Clarke and spent time with him when he was lonely. Not in a sexual way. “I think LeRoy is mourning the loss of a particular kind of patriarchy, the kind where men are more equal than women. “He’s an old, bitter man who I would really love to love.” A Laventille gang leader, who requested anonymity, said of Clarke’s comments. “Is the opposite. Plenty women and plenty babies. “Trinidad gangsters are not homos. I despise that. That kind of thing is not accepted. God tell me that is wrong.” Fr Clyde Harvey, who works with gangsters, told the Guardian he had never heard about homosexuality being used to initiate them. Heterosexual male dominance was the symbol of power among gangsters, he said.  “It’s about how many girls you can breed.” Gary Grant, community action officer of the National Security Ministry’s Citizens Security Programme, said he has no knowledge of homosexuality being used as an initiation rite in gangs. Grant, a former gang member, helps in crime-prevention programmes for at-risk youth in St Barb’s and other parts of Laventille, Gonzales in Belmont and Nelson Street and other parts of east Port-of-Spain. He said, “I have not seen or heard anything like that. I am not saying you might not have guys caught up in homosexual behaviour. But gangs generally shun homosexuality.” 




Traditional mores and modern society THE peoples of Guyana, although their ancestors spanned racial and cultural divides, shared one common tradition: and that is absolute respect for one’s elders, who were integral to the survival and sustenance of the individual family, and the community in general. The village elder system of jurisprudence prevailed within British Guiana village enclaves over the system as prescribed by the British Constitution, and until now, the Panchaayat system holds sway over rural communities in India before the more formalized court system of justice is sought. Within homes and families,it was the elders who guided the family in their daily pursuits, and who had the final say in family decisions. That respect of the younger members of a family and community for their elders has been gradually eroding until it has almost dissipated, although not absolutely, because there are yet some families who adhere stringently to old traditions. Many news stories of elderly parents being assaulted or neglected by their children is a reflection of the changing times, where the family elders are often seen as encumbrances and inhibitors of progress, and are consequently relegated to the ranks of the useless, and forced to exist in a paradigm of docility, servility and subservience. Enduring family relationships built on love, friendship, trust and respect are seemingly as extinct as the dodo. When a loving mother is turned into a guest instead of being treated like family; when a father is mocked at for his old-fashioned values; when parents are treated like so much used-up, discardable baggage not worth keeping in one’s home; when grandchildren are taught by their parents to disrespect grandparents and their value systems and moral codes, that is unimaginable tragedy for families, communities and nations. Oftentimes, the unsupportable pain children cause parents reaches its zenith, to the extent where parents find solace in the company of outsiders, and sanctuary on the streets, or in homeless shelters, as a visit to any of the homes for the elderly will attest. And when the pride and dignity of parents are shattered by the disillusion of ultimate betrayal of those whom they love best, and for whom they sacrificed everything, their children, sometimes they will themselves die, or take their own lives. Cognisant of the unfortunate decline in morals in the young generation, many church bodies are re-introducing healthy youth group activities in attempts to aid in the reinstitution of family values. An Indian movie, “Baghban”, explores these dynamics, and reinforces the message of the need for mutual respect and care among family members. Parents, having cared for their children, often expect reciprocity in later years. When hopes are dashed, fragmentation leads to contempt. Every family has challenges. Despite this, mutual care among parents and children is expected. Some may ask whether lack of reciprocity generates disrespect; whether parents expect too much from their children; why children forget their parents’ sacrifices and thus can be seen as ungrateful; why, very often, strangers are more useful than one’s “flesh and blood”. The protagonist in the movie poignantly concludes: “Times have changed; life has changed. If people of my generation will recall, our father was like God. At our mother’s feet lay our heaven. But now, now people have become very sensible. The new generation is very clever and practical. For them, every relation is like a ladder on which they will step to rise further in life. But

Government needs to establish more CoI

WHILE one welcomes the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to make determinations on the martyrdom of Walter Rodney, and, hopefully, some people would be fingered in this killing and be brought to trial for murder, the next CoI should be immediately called for: the ruling Government must demand a CoI into the WISMAR massacre. Bet your life many that took part in that massacre are still alive. A full stop must be put to those who are stoking the race war in Guyana. I believe in free speech, but free speech comes with responsibilities and consequences. Any politician who talks about lands belonging to their ancestors and incites racist attacks against innocent people for their properties must be charged and brought to trial for incitement.They killed families, and confiscated their properties; they raped and injured East Indians and beat them out of Wismar, and opposition

leaders are stoking the race war again by telling Afro-Guyanese that lands on the East Coast all the way up to Berbice belong to their ancestors. The government must tape these statements, and play it for the international community of peace-loving nations at the UN. Pass laws to ensure another genocidal WISMAR never happens again. Wismar is just a small community compared to the East Coast all the way up to Berbice. Ask how many East Indians live on the East Coast all the way up to Berbice. What the racist killers did in Wismar would be a blip to what they would do on the East Coast to East Indians. Remember the Buxton uprising? The Lusignan Massacre. Recent happenings at Linden and Agricola and recognise the latent danger. T. KING

Is an ID parade an easy escape route for some criminals? IT IS a legal requirement that has all the implications that can lead to the escape of a felon; here I make mention of these identification parades. The law stipulates that when a crime is committed and the perpetrator escapes, then the burden of proof, that is, to identify the said perpetrator, lies with the aggrieved party. Here is where the law is sometimes called “an ass”, because it is very tricky business when you are called upon to identify someone whom you have seen only once. In many cases, the sighting of that individual was a mere glance under circumstances that were for the most part traumatic. Try to imagine the situation where your attacker was mercilessly beating you on the head and you were there desperately trying to ward off the blows. After all of that you are then asked to identify that individual in an identification parade of his/her peers? Note well, that was your first time seeing the individual under circumstances that were most undesirable: if the law is not an ass, then what is? But this is what the law requires. In the matter involving former Assistant Police Commissioner Clinton Conway and a Kaieteur News pressman, this very fact raises its ugly head. In that matter, the former commissioner’s home was invaded by armed gunmen, when, in the ensuing scuffle, one of the burglars’ ID card accidentally fell at the scene of the robbery. Now, this is firm proof that the pressman was a member of the home invasion team; nevertheless, the law requires that the homeowner positively identify the attacker. The reason for this is that the law wants the right individual prosecuted for the crime and not the “innocent party.” What happened next is what we all feared: Mr. Conway identified the wrong person, which means that the pressman is automatically a free man. He is now rejoicing that he is free under when they have no use for the ladder anymore, along with the rest of the broken furniture in the house -- old vessels, old clothes and newspapers -- they are dumped in the attic. “However, life does not take you up like a ladder; life grows like a tree. Parents are not the steps on a ladder; parents are the soul of one’s life. However big the tree is, however green and filled it is, it cannot stand on its own, once its roots are hacked. With all humility and respect, I ask today - the children for whose happiness a father spends every penny of his hard-earned money with a smile, those very children, when the father’s eye-sight weakens…why do they hesitate in giving them light? “If a father can help his son to take the first step in his life... why can’t the son give his father support when he’s taking the last few steps of his life? What crime is it of the parents who have devoted all their lives to their children, that they are given tears and loneliness? “Is it for a day like this that Man seeks children? Children perhaps forget what our present today is, will be their present tomorrow. If we are old today, they will also grow old someday. The questions we ask today, they will ask tomorrow.” Indeed. But the changing dynamics within society itself is a major contributory factor to down-scaling standards within homes. In a nation where children can disregard law and order to the extent of attending school with weapons, and threaten and even harm fellow students and teachers, with little or no sanctions; where there is massive cover-up of illicit activities on school premises; then that is the yardstick by which the nation, the community, and the family will be judged, in descending order.

a technicality in the law. He might well be celebrating under the expressed thought that Mr. Conway is a madman who was out to frame “an innocent” pressman. Mr. Conway, from what I know of him, is not one to suffer from senility, nor is he a collector of identification cards. But, like I said, this is another case where a criminal has gotten away with a heinous crime, all on a technicality. Failure to identify a felon is no reason for the perpetrator/s to celebrate, as I have indicated above. But this is the sad reality of this whole identification parade business. In many instances it is an easy way of escape for a criminal. NEIL ADAMS

Rice markets being threatened

HARVESTING of the present rice crop has commenced in Region 2. In the central parts of the Essequibo Coast, the exercise is moving apace in the southern sections. Although the paddy is somewhat infested with red rice, farmers are optimistic that the prices will climb from its present price of $3000 for the highest grade. It has been reported that the price has fallen from $4000 to $3000 for a bag of Extra Grade paddy, and the consequences of declining prices are already being felt. This trend, which was non-uniform in the past, has had more serious consequences for the rice farmers. Guyana is the Caribbean’s main rice producers, but in the last year we have faced a serious threat to our earning position as other rice producing countries began offering more competitive prices. This is undoubtedly a bold move to capture a greater share of the international market. However, there was a significant disparity in the export prices as the difference was greatly reduced.It is not clear what is responsible for this drop in paddy prices, and it was reported that there is a lot of last-crop rice in the millers’ warehouses. With the current trend, it is expected that at some point these prices will level off. The implications for rice farmers can be quite serious indeed. Rice farmers will have to expect that these falling prices will soon be translated into this year’s market and will inevitably threaten the comparatively high prices previously being enjoyed. In addition, if rice from outside sources enters the Caribbean markets, Guyana’s producers will have grave difficulties in competing, and the farmers will have to pay greater attention to cost of production and efficiency. However, with the high stocks in the country, cutback in production will not provide a temporary reprieve, as the release of stocks primarily from other countries will further add to the pressure on the low prices. The outlook for the 2014 rice crops is quite uncertain at the moment. Guyana has been expanding its rice production; however, recent changes in the international arena and trade liberalization could eliminate or at least sharply reduce Guyana’s access to rice export markets. It is prudent to draw attention to the recent revelation that millers and rice buyers are engaged in low-price fixing. MOHAMED KHAN

Driver soliciting passengers at Berbice Bridge slapped with several charges --placed on $45,000 bail MOTORIST Joseph Warde, 44, who allegedly solicited passengers in the vicinity of the entrance to the Berbice River Bridge on February 18 last, was slapped with six charges, and on Monday was granted pre-liberty trial in the sum of $45,000 following his appearance before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the New Amsterdam Court. The driver of motor car PPP 5616, and of Lot 10 Manchester Village, Corentyne, had shouted and made noise to attract the attention of a passenger in a manner to cause public annoyance. Warde also faces two counts of leaving his vehicle in a dangerous position so as to likely endanger other persons using the said road. Further, police allege that he had behaved in a disorderly manner at the Central Police Station on March 1. Moreover, Warde was charged with possessing an offensive weapon, to wit a cutlass, after cops said he had the weapon without lawful authority or reasonable cause. The final charge the police had instituted against Warde was that he failed to stop when directed by Police Constable #20684 Haslyn George, a member of the Guyana Police Force in uniform, engaged in regulating the traffic on the Palmyra public road in the execution of his duties. The unrepresented Warde has pleaded not guilty to each of the charges. His matters have been fixed for hearing on May 15. (Jeune Vankerick)

Police charge two found with chalice and suspected cocaine in vehicle FORTY-NINE-YEAR-OLD Mohanmood Hussein, alias Slant Eye, and Rohame Sukharan, called Cindy, were each ordered to post $100,000 bail after they denied joint charges of being in possession of a utensil used in smoking cocaine -- to wit, an improvised metal chalice; and also for having in their possession half a gramme of cocaine. Police Sergeant Phillip Sherrif, prosecuting, told Whim Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh that on March 2, the couple was in motor car PKK 523, being driven by Hussein while Sukharan was in the front passenger seat, when they were stopped at a police road block at Alness Village, Corentyne, and a vehicle search done in their presence unearthed an improvised pipe on the driver’s seat. The police checked the pipe and saw therein a creamish rock-like substance, suspected to be cocaine, and the defendants were told of the offences and subsequently charged. The matters are fixed for hearing on April 7. (Jeune Vankerick)

Attempted murder defendant compensates victim $250,000 TAZIM Talip, alias Justin, (no address given) opted to pay the virtual complainant the sum of $250,000 as compensation when he appeared on Monday before Whim Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh. The accused had initially pleaded not guilty to the charge that on September 1, 2013, at John’s, Port Mourant, Corentyne, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Narine Khadaroo at a wedding house when an argument erupted between them, during which he stabbed the complainant in the region of the back. A medical certificate revealed that Khadaroo had sustained three stab wounds in the region of his lungs. After Talip had handed over the compensation money to Khadaroo, the magistrate warned him of the consequences that would have flowed from a trial in which he had been found guilty, and thereafter, he discharged the defendant.

Shocked tenants and police investigators at the scene of the crime yesterday. at Versailles were shaken yesterday morning by news about an attempted murder when a man brutally stabbed his wife and his subsequent suicide. The man who has been identified as Andrew Patterson, 34, of Goed Fortuin Village, stabbed his wife, 32-year-old Tamika Patterson, twenty times about her body and escaped before police arrived. Just months after their apartments were raided by thieves, residents of Lot 57 Roraima Housing Scheme at Versailles, West Bank Demerara, awoke early yesterday morning to find the man hanging from the water trestle in the yard with a telephone wire wrapped around his neck. The gruesome discovery was made at about 05:45 hrs yesterday by a tenant, Nathalie Murray, who went out on the back veranda to do her normal morning physical exercises. When the woman raised an alarm, residents scampered from the apartment building to investigate. As residents began enquiring about his identity, one young woman, who remained level headed, dialled the Leonora Police Station, West Coast Demerara, and cops arrived at the scene some half an hour later. One of the lawmen immediately recognised the man who had earlier stabbed his wife around 02:00 hrs and had made good his escape into the bushy backlands of the village. According to a police report, the woman who is on a life support machine at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) sustained severe stab wounds to her chest, spine, throat, cervical region,

Allegedly drunken man fined $10,000 for calling sister-in-law a ‘fire-rass’ FORTY-NINE-YEAR-OLD Satesh Singh of Miss Phoebe, Port Mourant, Corentyne has blamed alcohol consumption for calling his elderly relative a “fire rass” when he appeared before Whim Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh on Monday to answer a charge of threatening language. Police Sergeant Phillip Sherriff, prosecuting, told the court that on March 1, Singh went to the home of his sister-in-law, Wellinane Govindom, called Doris, and started to verbally abuse her; but the complainant paid him no mind until he called her a “fire-rass” and threatened to kill her and burn her house down. The 77-year-old complainant became afraid at Singh’s regular behaviour and summoned the police. Questioned by the court, the defendant said he had imbibed some liquor and was unaware of what he might have said. He, nevertheless, pleaded with the magistrate to give him a chance, vowing never to repeat his behaviour; but Magistrate Singh warned the defendant of his drinking habit, informed him that his reappearance in court would draw a custodial penalty, and imposed on Singh a fine of $10,000.

ed that prior to the incident the couple was involved in one of their customary brawls when the man had threatened to kill his wife. Sources said that he soon after went out and was seen consuming alcohol profusely with friends in the village. Sources said that after the incident, neighbours were alerted by the anguished screams of the woman and rushed to her assistance. By this time her attacker had escaped and could not be located even though several villagers went in search of him. Neighbours said that the man was very easily agitated and would often beat and torment his wife the moment she looked in the direction of another male. They described him as one of those husbands who seemed more obsessed than in love with his wife. When the body was discovered a cellular phone could be heard ringing continuously

in the dead man’s pocket and onlookers suggested his mother was desperately trying to make contact with him. According to police sources, the man apparently thinking his wife was dead had attempted to cut his wrists. Lawmen mentioned that since this did not work the man decided to hang himself. The weapon used to inflict grievous injury to his wife was found in the yard just next to where he took his life. It was all tumultuous confusion at the crime scene as tenants moaned. “Oh lawd what a catastrophe. Is how we gon live heh now.” One terrified young woman clung to her husband lamenting, “What in heaven’s name is this, this yard gon be haunted now. Suicidal spirits does be running all ovah de place, restless like hell....” Not long after attendants arrived from Sandy’s Funeral Parlour and removed the body.

Following return of Critchlow subvention …

Lincoln Lewis flayed for criticisms of unanimous parliamentary vote By Vanessa Narine FORMER Labour Minister and Member of Parliament (MP), Manzoor Nadir, yesterday spoke out against criticisms levelled at the unanimous vote by the MPs to restore the subvention to Critchlow Labour College (CLC). Nadir, at a press conference held at Freedom House, Robb Street, said, “The People’s Progressive Party is aghast that Mr. Lincoln Lewis, on behalf of the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC), would so swiftly (within twenty-four hours) denounce the National Assembly which unanimously voted to restore the subvention to the Critchlow Labour College, once the GTUC amended the labour component on its Board to have an equal number of representative from the two umbrella labour organisations, the FITUG and the GTUC.” The National Assembly has unanimously approved a motion that the Government’s annual subvention to the Critchlow Labour College, withheld since 2007, be restored. The motion was passed last Thursday after the mover, Alliance For Change (AFC) MP, Trevor Williams, had made an amendment that was acceptable to both sides of the House. The original motion had merely called for the Government to restore the subvention, but an amendment was introduced and included a precondition that the labour component of the Board of Directors of the CLC must include four representatives of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG), placing representatives of FITUG on the Board of the CLC for the first time. NOT ABOUT THE STUDENTS Nadir noted that for the past six years there have been calls from many quarters, especially the political opposition and anti-government public figures, to restore the subvention, which the Government had suspended, citing that there must be accountability and democratic governance within the Critchlow Labour College. He said, “The rejection by the GTUC of the National Assembly’s unanimous motion is a clear indication that all the hullabaloo they made about the restoration of the subvention, had nothing to do about money and the students, but was merely about politics.

“The GTUC leadership has stood steadfast that it would prefer to “rule over ruin”, a sick philosophy of many in the People’s National Congress, rather than come to a consensus that would be in the interest of all stakeholders of the college and the national labour movement as a whole.” He made it clear that last Thursday’s vote ensured that the “collective voice” of the organised labour movement is represented on the Board of the CLC. The former Labour Minister said, “The swift and complete rejection by the GTUC is not only a slap in the face of the Alliance For Change which brought the motion and the amendment, but it also reflects on the labour aristocracy which has hijacked the CLC. “A dictatorship that is not intent on managing the CLC for the development of our youth and the unity of the labour movement, but to achieve the objective of making the PPP/C government look bad. It is this dictatorship that is hurting the Critchlow Labour College and preventing the unification of the labour movement.” Nadir referenced comments made by current Labour Minister, Dr. Nanda Gopual, in his contribution to the debate and noted that he said that it is “inconceivable that one of the smallest unions” in the country, with under 200 members out of an organised labour population of 50,000, could hold the presidency and general secretary positions of the GTUC for so long. “The International Labour Organisation (ILO) in all of its conventions and policy statements speaks to the State and stakeholders consulting with the ‘the most representative organisations of labour’. The GTUC and certainly the composition of the Board of the CLC cannot and does not, pass this litmus test of the ILO,” the former minister said. CHARACTER ASSASSINATIONS According to him, the ruling party has noted that the GTUC General Secretary, Lincoln Lewis, and its “puppet” President, Leslie Gonsalves, have now zeroed in on the character assassination of Dr. Roopnaraine and Dr. Nanda Gopaul. He said, “True to form, the leadership of the GTUC would

oppose all initiatives to bring democratic governance to the CLC.” Nadir pointed out too that at least two former CLC Principals, Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine, and the late Godwin McPherson wanted to ensure that the CLC would revert to being an institution of education rather than a vehicle of politics. He said, “Dr. Roopnaraine, Deputy Leader of APNU, in his contribution to the motion last Thursday, acknowledged that there was need for the broadening of the labour representatives on the CLC board. “Dr. Roopnaraine, who spoke his heart that night, had worked hard towards bringing the financial records of the CLC up to date and to deal with the accountability aspects of the CLC. He was at that time providing for the requirements, which were asked of the college by the Minister of Education. “This angered the GTUC dictatorship who began to put pressure on him and even threatened to fire him, causing him to quit in disgust, saying that the CLC was being run like ‘cake-shop’. “The late Godwin McPherson, for all his efforts to put education first and politics behind, was padlocked out of his office when he was principal. “It is this bitterness and stubbornness of the TUC dictatorship that is now turned on the National Assembly.” He stressed that the ruling party, a party for the workers, is now vindicated in speaking out against the leadership of the GTUC and its efforts to prevent democratic governance from being the norm in the GTUC. Nadir said, “This has been the plague of the TUC since the days of the PNC dictatorship, when at one time even two ministers of the PNC regime sat on the TUC Executive – another element which is against all of the ILO conventions. “This refusal to bring democratisation to the TUC has also been the cause of the split in the labour movement and the formation of the FITUG. “Last week’s unanimity in the passage of the motion in Parliament was a rare show of consensus where the CLC was concerned; however, these hopes are once again being dashed by the minority that calls itself the Guyana Trades Union Congress.”

Ministry’s preparations Bullying, drug abuse reported for Local Gov’t Elections at Tagore Secondary - parents request urgent ministerial intervention continuing - Whittaker By Savitri Laikram

By Vanessa Narine THERE has been no request for the City Council of Georgetown to be replaced by an Interim Management Committee (IMC), according to Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Norman Whittaker. And at a press conference yesterday at Freedom House, Robb Street, he disclosed that preparations for Local Government Elections, in terms of public awareness, continue apace. Minister Whittaker stated that these efforts, which began last October, are quintessential to ensuring that there is good voter turnout for the elections. However, he stressed that the ministry’s readiness is not the only factor that determines Guyana’s overall readiness to host the elections, noting in particular the inputs from the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM). Asked about the President’s non-assent to the Local Government (Amendment) Bill, Whittaker maintained that the three Bills integral to the hosting of Local Government Elections have been assented to. The contention of Head of

State Donald Ramotar is that the Local Government (Amendment) Bill was unconstitutional, as it sought to vest control of local authorities in the Local Government Commission and remove ministerial control of these, hence he did not assent to it. The three Bills that were

Minister Norman Whittaker assented to last November are the Fiscal Transfers Bill 2012, Municipal and District Councils (Amendment) Bill and the Local Government Commission Bill. The commencement order for the latter is yet to be signed and Whittaker explained that there are several issues to be considered before it can be signed, including the identification of commissioners, staffing

and accommodation for the Commission itself. Guyana is expected to host Local Government Elections on or before August 1, 2014, following a vote in the National Assembly, after rigorous debates over the importance of local government elections to the democracy. The House passed the Local Authorities (Elections) (Amendment) Bill 2013, which states that elections must be held on or before August 1, 2014. The Bill’s passage was pushed by the Opposition, which used its one-seat majority to its advantage, even as Government Members of Parliament (MPs) argued in favour of the date being on or before December 1, 2014. The August date was made via an amendment to the Bill, proposed by A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), while the House was in Committee. Local government elections were not held in Guyana since 1994. Prior to that, local government elections were last held in 1970. Subsequent to 1994, the elections could not be conducted because of the coincidence with the general and regional elections of 1997.

PARENTS of children attending the Tagore Memorial Secondary School at the Number Sixty-Four Babylon, East Berbice, Corentyne, are alleging that students are being plagued by the issues of bullying and drug abuse in the school. This publication visited the school and subsequently spoke to various parents who said that they are fearful for the well-being of their children while they are at school. It has also been alleged that complaints made to teachers are not being taken seriously, and this allows the violence to continue. Allegations that the teachers witness these incidents in the corridors and classrooms were also made. Parents claim that the issue of school violence was raised at a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting, and even though teachers are seeing the students walking with weapons (including knives), they neither reprimand nor discipline them. One student told this publication that only recently he was held in a classroom by some older students and given a beating and two male teachers passed by and saw the incident.

This student also claimed that the teachers laughed and continued walking by when he called out to them. He further alleged that the teachers were present when the bullies took away his money. A few other parents and students complained that the school does not have a proper PTA system and teachers are very hostile to them. One parent told this newspaper that her son was absent from school for almost two weeks in February, because he had been thoroughly beaten for his money by a gang of older students. His mother said he detailed to her that he had been cuffed and kicked about his body and shortly after he came home she asked him to undress and take a shower and she saw bruise marks on his skin and a tooth was missing. She related that she questioned the child and he told her he had been beaten for his money and had to seek a loan from a friend to get back home. The child told his mother that he had complained to the teacher after the incident and the teacher had promised to look into the matter. The woman said the child complained all night about abdominal pains and she was forced to take him to a pri-

vate doctor for treatment.

SMOKING Students and parents are also alleging that a person or persons unknown have been selling cannabis in the school, and the teachers are reportedly aware of this but have not been treating it as a matter of urgency. Some parents believe that these students don’t always act off their own accord after they would have consumed the narcotic. DRIVING This publication also witnessed students who appear to be just about 14 - 16 years old in vehicles that are reportedly rented, driving to school. When questioned, one student said that where he is from a licence is not needed to rent a car and moreover his friend owns the rental and he can get cars for himself and friends anytime he wants. Parents are pleading with the relevant authorities to look into the matters urgently, as they say the safety of many vulnerable children is at stake. Attempts to contact the school and the Regional Education Officer for further comment on this issue proved futile.

Ailing APNU leadership can’t take the pressure - so resorts to biting its own tail

OLD Kai has been relaxing in his armchair over the past few weeks and paying rapt attention to the talent shown ongoing within APNU. Demoralized and lost for ideas, the leadership has been quietly questioning its ability at the national level. But as old people say, ‘when yuh mek yuh bed, yuh gat fuh sleep pan am’, as the PNC were warned by their own membership against putting an inexperienced individual such as David Granger to be the face of their front organisation, which is APNU. The man has now surrounded himself with his ‘squaddies’ who, clearly, are equally as clueless as he. This was most recently observed when Joseph Harmon, known as ‘The Harmonica’, was tasked with coming up with a palatable excuse to explain why APNU supporters had openly criticised the party’s position on the AML/CFT Bill during Town Hall meetings by Government officials, but all he could muster was that “they were paid to attend the meetings by the Government.” To attack the integrity of the ruling party and government is one thing, but to attack the integrity of your very own supporters, knowing that you are lying against them, is a travesty of epic proportions. Supporters of the opposition, clearly by now would have realised that there are no sacred cows among them, if they happen to affect the plans of their political leaders in some way or the other. This, in essence, signals the slow, subtle return of ‘raw dictatorship’. To understand the ‘authoritarian mindset’ would require my digressing into several aspects of political philosophy, save to say that it seems like a relapse of a cancer, previously thought to be in remission within the opposition ranks. The supporters of the opposition in Linden, Bartica and other locations where the ‘Town Hall meetings’ were held must now

ponder how they will treat with the issue of being labelled as bribe takers, and involved in corruption by the very people they voted for. These citizens simply wanted to be part of the political process; they wanted to hear the other side, and when they did, they realised that this was not what they voted for. They wanted ‘a good life’; they never voted to be ‘blacklisted’. Now, on top of cutting government funds, which will aid in these people getting a better life, APNU wants them to suffer the effects of the economy being squeezed by international financial sanctions, and, to top it off, APNU leaders are publicly implying that they are ‘crooks’. Those in the business community who supported and financed APNU in the last elections are now insulted by being told that they are involved in illegal activities,

‘The people who voted for ‘a good life’ rather than being ‘blacklisted’ are now accused of essentially being corrupt and bribe-takers by opposition leaders’ and depend on ‘dirty money’. How much more attacks and punishment will opposition supporters take from their leaders? I find it painful to witness these daily attacks by the power-obsessed opposition on the very people who placed them in their positions. No one should be stripped of their dignity in such a manner by the people they trusted. Then there is the personal attack against those in the leadership itself that have either fell out of favour with the Granger clique, or apparently refuse to fall in line with the dictatorship.

City Council budget presented ...

From page 3

gives the council in subvention, along with the services it offers to the city. Garrett observed that, for the past 16 years, the Government has not increased its rates and taxes. “The value of the money we have been collecting has significantly been eroded because of the increase in the cost for goods and services. There was no VAT back then and there has been a constant increase in wages and salaries. We can go either to a magistrate’s court or to the high court but both options are frustrating,” he lamented. Meanwhile, Sooba told the Guyana Chronicle that some of the items represented in the budget are illogical. “For instance, they have included provisions for pensions and gratuity which they, for many years, wanted while they are not salaried employees. And a lot of what has been placed in the budget cannot really be provided for. “So, when they caused the budget to be redone to accommodate some of the things they wanted, it became a highly deficit budget. “We had a budget that was not deficit before. They fully participated but did not approve, because they wanted to make provisions for things that are not supposed to be in it. What they are telling the public don’t really make sense,” Sooba declared. Meanwhile, Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Green told this newspaper, following the presentation, that she believes the council can still work towards the deficit. “We are hoping that we can actually see work being done this year,” she said. MOST WORRYING The most worrying issue in the city, though, is garbage, she admitted. “We have not been able to address it properly because we don’t have a proper manager in the town in terms of the Chief Executive Officer who has no idea and no vision. “You see garbage dumped at every single corner in the city and, unless you are not able to sit with the contractors and the workers and tell them exactly what you want, go in the streets and show them how you want it to be done, we are not going to get anywhere. “We just can’t sit in our offices and do it,” she agreed.

Members of the public who turned up to hear the presentation.

We have all heard or read Aubrey Norton’s cry from the wilderness, and we have observed how Vanessa Kissoon, of Linden, was recently embarrassed in front of the cameras in the National Assembly by being demoted. The punishment will not end there, as Old Kai is sure, just as night follows day, that if Guyana gets blacklisted, the international bauxite companies operating in Region 10 which depended on international revenue for their exports will also feel the squeeze from the accompanying restrictions. Ultimately, it will be the average bauxite worker who will feel it the most, as a dry-up in revenue will lead to a reduction in the operations of these companies who will be forced to scrap their current expansion plans. Workers will be laid off, but I will be eagerly waiting to see who the unions representing these workers will blame for this situation, as Lincoln Lewis and TUC have essentially called for Guyana to be blacklisted with their support for APNU/AFC refusal to pass the AML/CFT Bill. Thus, in effect, they are probably the first in the history of trade unionism to be supporting impending hardships on the working class, including their own membership. This is the combination of destructive leadership that has brought this country to its knees in the past, and apparently, they feel they have the ability to do it again. Old Kai’s message to those affected is, do not wait until elections to hold your leaders accountable. Sure, the people at Kaieteur and Stabroek will refuse to publish your letters critical of the Opposition, but there are many other avenues to air your views. There are several other media outlets: print, broadcast and the internet, as well as a host of social media sites. Do not wait until it is too late; you can avoid being ‘collateral damage’.

PPP announces month programme for Jagans’ death anniversaries THE People’s Progressive Party (PPP), yesterday, announced a month of activities to mark the death anniversaries of late former Presidents, Dr. Cheddi Jagan and Mrs. Janet Jagan. Party Executive Secr e t a r y, Z u l f i k a r M u s t a pha, told a press conference at Freedom House, in Robb Street, Georgetown, that the observances will spawn the life and works of Mrs. Jagan, whose death anniversary is also in March. “Together with Guyanese from across the country, party groups, supporters and fraternal organisations, the PPP will use the month to fittingly reflect on the contributions to national development by Dr. Jagan and his wife,” he said. Mustapha said Dr. Jagan, man of the people as he was comDr. Cheddi Jagan Mrs Janet Jagan monly known and referred to, with his pro-poor, workingclass philosophy, led many struggles against British colonialism and People’s National Congress (PNC) dictatorship, resulting in a democratic Guyana in 1992. “This saw commencement of the dawn of a new era which, subsequently, resulted in transformational changes in Guyana under successive PPP/C Administrations,” he observed. Mustapha stated that events are planned in all 10 Administrative Regions. VISION CONTINUES He said:“Dr. Jagan’s vision continues to be a living guide of the work of the PPP, as his legacy is visible throughout the Guyana success stories. “The PPP is grateful for the overwhelming love and support that is generated for these observances as Guyanese continue to use the month of March to acknowledge the greatness of this outstanding son of our soil.” Among the plans for Dr. Jagan’s death anniversary is the annual activity at the Babu John crematorium, Port Mourant, Corentyne, Berbice, on Sunday, March 9, at 14:30 hrs.

Local Gov’t Minister meets with municipal councils of New Amsterdam, Rose Hall and Corriverton By Savitri Laikram MINISTER of Local Government and Regional Development, Norman Whittaker along with a team of senior officers of the ministry on Friday, February 28 visited the three municipalities of Region 6, meeting with their respective councils. According to a release from the Local Government Ministry, the meetings focused primarily on the projects proposed by the councils in their respective 2014 Budget Estimates. Also high on his agenda were the issues of roadside vending and solid waste management, both of which are challenges faced by the Region 6 municipalities. Mr. Zaheer Osman, Managing Director of Advance Environment Solution, the company responsible for solid waste collection and disposal in Region 6 was also present for these meetings at the request of Minister Whittaker. MENU OF MEASURES The parties discussed the challenges in addressing the issues affecting the improvement in solid waste manage-

ment and agreed on a menu of measures aimed at addressing these challenges. These measures include the contractor making available to the municipalities and to residents a schedule for collection; an intensified solid waste education and public awareness programme that involves not only the contractor but the municipalities, the Regional Democratic Council of Region 6 and the private sector. Minister Whittaker, while stressing that residents and the municipalities must work with the contractor, also alluded to the Solid Waste Management Bill which he indicated would, when approved in the National Assembly, undoubtedly impact the way solid waste is stored, collected, transported and disposed of. Mr. Osman’s responsibilities include developing, operating and maintaining the landfill sites identified and approved by the EPA in Region 6. The release further stated that the high level of outstanding rates and taxes for residential and commercial properties; the under utilisation of available market buildings and facilities and the high incidence of roadside vending were identified by

the minister as a scourge that needed to be addressed. Municipalities must seek to intensify efforts to collect rates and taxes and to have vendors move into the markets, he emphasised. PROPERTY REVALUATION Commenting on the request by these municipalities for property revaluation with a view to increasing rates, Minister Whittaker retorted that while he is not unsupportive of the municipalities having new property rates and those extended and/ or reclassified from residential to commercial valued by the rightful authority, the Office of the Chief Valuation Officer, efforts ought to be intensified to have existing defaulters honour their debts. Otherwise, he posited, the pressures continue to reside at the feet and on the shoulders of the disciplined and honest ratepayers who have been paying up. In discussing Councils’ 2014 Estimates, the Honourable Minister pointed to the fact that in all three municipalities, more than 70% of their Capital Works are to be funded

Minister Whittaker and the Municipality of New Amsterdam from Government’s subvention while their maintenance works are to be funded from an average 17% of the Estimates with Employment Costs/Overheads averaging 67% for the three municipalities. He expressed his dissatisfaction and asked that more

resources garnered mainly from rates and market fees be utilised to provide core services of drainage, removal of vegetation, solid waste management and road maintenance. The minister also discussed with council the issue of illegal occupancy of reserve

lands and called on the councils to work with Government to address these illegalities which continue to contribute to the problems of traffic congestion, dumping of garbage and destruction of the aesthetics of the environment in which we live.

Credit Union holds Thanksgiving Se and brunch to mark 50th annivers

By Shirley Thomas THE Guyana Public Service Co-operative Credit Union (GPSCCU) Sunday celebrated its 50th anniversary with a Silver Jubilee Thanksgiving Service at St. Andrew’s Kirk on Brickdam. Prime Minister Samuel Hinds and Leader of the Opposition, APNU leader Brigadier (Ret’d) David Granger, were present as Chief Celebrant, Rev-

erend Maureen Massiah; Liturgist, Elder Gail Robinson; and Organist, Elder Lynette Cunha, led hundreds in celebration of the auspicious milestone. President of the GPSCCU, Andrew Nestor; president of the Guyana Public Service Union, Patrick Yarde; and members of the Board of Directors and management officials of the Union were also in attendance. At the conclusion of the service, Co-ordinator of the Silver

Jubilee Celebrations, Ms. Veira Naughton, made, on behalf of the Credit Union, a presentation of $50,000 to the church, representing $1,000 for every year of the Credit Union’s existence. Ms. Naughton said the Credit Union was born out of the Guyana Public Service Union, and expressed appreciation to Rev. Massiah and the Diocese for facilitating the service. She noted how pleased the GPSU and its Credit Union

were to be associated with the service. Following the church service, a brunch’ was held at Duke Lodge on Duke Street, Kingston in celebration of the signature milestone. Other important services to be held at the same church during this week include: * Kirk Session: Monday, March 3, 2014, beginning at 17:15 hrs.

* Ash Wednesday Service: March 5th at 12:15 hrs. All are invited * World Day of Prayer: Friday, March 7, 2014, at St. Andrew’s Kirk, beginning at 17:00 hrs. Meanwhile, World Day of Prayer Children’s Rally will be held on Sunday, March 9, 2014, beginning at 14:30 hrs at Calvary Lutheran Church at Alexander Street& North Road.

The Guyana Public Service Co-operative Credit Union is registered Number 849, and is located at Lot 45 Hadfield Street, Freeburg, Georgetown. Having been established since March 1, 1964, the credit union has a long and unbroken record of providing efficient service, catering for members who are, or have been, employees of the public sector of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana.

With a reputation for being the country’s largest credit union, 50 years after its establishment, the GPSCCU boasts a membership of more than 13,000, effectively serving as a “buffer to subsidize the salary levels in the public service.” That apart, the organization boasts a current lending level that exceeds $100million per month.

Guyana Olympic Association President K.A Juman Yassin presents the Queen’s baton to President Donald Ramotar as Minister of Culture Youth and Sport Dr Frank Anthony looks on

President, several other officials receive Queen’s baton GUYANA is the latest stop for the Queen’s Baton relay. The baton, which arrived here yesterday and which has since made its way around Georgetown, will spend two days in the country. The baton relay in Guyana began on Main Street, where yesterday morning Head of State Donald Ramotar received

the baton at State House. Accompanied by First Lady Deolatchmee Ramotar, and their daughter Lisa, Ramotar ran with it up to the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, where it was passed on to Culture Youth and Sport Minister Dr. Frank Anthony. At the end of his journey, President Ramotar expressed

hope that the exercise would give local athletes some encouragement that would translate into their winning medals at the Commonwealth Games. The games will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, over 11 days of competition, from July 23 to August 3, 2014. Prime Minister Samuel Hinds also received the ba-

ton, handed over to him in front of the Umana Yana, Kingston, after which he ran with it to the Canadian Embassy and then passed it on to an embassy representative. Among others receiving the baton and participating in the baton relay were Minister of Education Priya Manickchand, Speaker of the National Assem-

bly Raphael Trotman and Opposition Leader David Granger. The Queen’s Baton relay has been the Commonwealth Games curtain raiser since 1958. As part of the relay, the baton visits all Commonwealth nations and territories ahead of the opening ceremony on July 24. The baton left Buckingham palace on October 9, 2013, and after its journey here, it will move to Barbados. (GINA)

US Embassy, UG and WWF Guyana hold symposium on World Wildlife Day By Ravin Singh THE U.S. Embassy collaborated with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Guyana and the University of Guyana (UG) yesterday to hold a symposium on its premises in Kingston to celebrate World Wildlife Day. The symposium served to create awareness among UG students about threats facing wildlife in Guyana, and also to hold fruitful discussion on the issue of wildlife trafficking. Jeff Barrus, Guyana’s Economic and Commercial Officer at the U.S. Embassy, addressed the issue first. He was keen to mention that Guyana is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity. However, he noted that Guyana’s wildlife is under threat from wildlife trafficking.

“Wildlife trafficking is a multi-billion-dollar criminal enterprise. The increasing involvement of organised crime in poaching and wildlife trafficking promotes corruption, threatens the peace and security of fragile regions, strengthens illicit trade routes, destabilises economies and communities that depend on wildlife for their livelihood, and contributes to the spread of diseases,” Mr. Barrus declared. He also mentioned that the Unites States had announced a national strategy for combating wildlife trafficking last year, and said the strategy will strengthen U.S. leadership on addressing the serious and urgent conservation and global security threat posed by the illegal trade in wildlife. It will also address corruption, cross-border traffick-

ing, and laundering of criminal proceeds related to wildlife trafficking, he disclosed, as he concluded that the United States will continue to lead global efforts to protect the world’s iconic animals and preserve our planet’s natural beauty for future generations. Adding to the presentations was Dr. Patrick Williams, Country Manager for World Wildlife Fund, Guyana. Dr. Williams noted that Guyana has placed great emphasis on trafficking of wildlife over the last 10-12 years, and even longer on turtles; and this protection scheme is not only limited to endangered animals, but includes wild species of plants as well. “The plants and animals are interdependent” he declared. Dr. Williams mentioned that WWF Guyana is concerned with monitoring trade of wild-

life, and is placing great emphasis on “Bush meat” trade. Plants are also being traded to neighbouring countries; and, as such, WWF Guyana is trying to harmonize the trade system, particularly with Suriname, and are working with partners in the Rupununi to restore the arapaima’s population in that area. WWF Guyana will -- by means of youth clubs, environmental clubs, school clubs and other mediums -- seek to educate the public about wildlife through preservation, to enlighten people on the value of such resources. The radio station in Rupununi is also a channel used to educate the population in that area. In closing, Dr. Williams pleaded with relevant authorities to support WWF Guyana in its quest to preserve these national treasures and end wildlife

trafficking. The presentations were followed by a short documentary film which was set in Malaysia but deals with many issues of relevance to Guyana’s endangered species. An open discussion followed soon after, with students from the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences dominating the forum and making recommendations for challenges faced by WWF in wildlife trafficking. Although being praised for the efforts being exerted so far, it was nevertheless noted that, through collaboration with intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, corporations, civil society and individuals, much more can be done to combat this social and economic issue of wildlife endangerment.


GUYANA CHRONICLE Tuesday March 4, 2014

Aries March 21 - April 19

Every now and then, everything just falls into place with only the slimmest effort on your part. See what happens when you go with the flow today, rather than trying to force things to happen exactly the way you want them to. If you go for it immediately, you bypass all the pleasurable anticipation. Since victory is already pretty much a foregone conclusion, you should let it linger.

Taurus April 20 - May 20

You need to feel connected to something bigger than yourself in order to maintain your sense of perspective and peace when they’re most needed. It might be through art, spirituality, community service, nature or some combination. Take some time to nourish your spirit and celebrate where you are. A lot of luck (and love) have gone into making you, so be sure to appreciate everything around you.

Gemini May 21 - June 21

Let everything within you rise -- your spirits, your secret desires, your kindness and your compassion. It’s time for you to be the best possible human being that you can be! You need to explore what it is you really want to do -- just thinking about it all should help you explore what it is, exactly, that the universe has brought you here to do.

Cancer June 22 - July 22

Are you challenging authority again? You’ve almost certainly been tweaking the rules and playing devil’s advocate at every opportunity, and why not? The good news is that you have an appreciative audience for all of your wacky hijinks. The somewhat less-good news is that you may have also earned the ire of someone who thinks they’re in charge. Tone it down, for the time being -- soon you can go back to your old, more rambunctious self.

Leo July 23 - August 22

Something (or someone) has lit a metaphorical fire under you, and you’re back to feeling like your old self. Now that your energy is back where it should be, it’s time to cross off a few of those lingering items from your to-do list. If the load seems like it might be too much, don’t hesitate to call on trusted friends, allies and colleagues to help you take care of it all.

Virgo August 23 - September 22

If you keep saying yes when you mean no, you might just end up driving yourself crazy -- not to mention the people you love! Don’t try to just give people what they want all the time -- you need to think about what you want now. How about a little extra peace and quiet? Maybe you want to bow out of your cousin’s wedding reception? Whatever it is, try to give yourself everything and pay attention to how it makes you feel.

Libra September 23 - October 22

Some say that insanity is simply repeating the same action and hoping for different results. Right now, there’s a situation or relationship in your life feels like you’re banging your head against a wall and hurting yourself endlessly -- so what are you waiting for? You can figure it all out with a little soul-searching. Take some time for yourself and get to it!

Scorpio October 23 - November 21

The heart is a funny thing -- like all the other muscles in your body, it needs a regular workout, but it needs constant spiritual aerobics as well. Get out there and share your heart’s energy with all kinds of people: family, your mate, coworkers, friends and complete strangers. Volunteer in the community or find meaning in politics. The other funny thing about the heart is that even the smallest bit of nurturing can make it grow.

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21

It’s time for you to do some serious cleaning. After all, if you’ve got too much junk cluttering up your available space, you can’t add anything new. Clean out your closet, desk, car and -- most importantly -- your brain. You need to be rid of any outdated, useless or just plain silly preconceptions or ideas you’ve been lugging around. It’s even more vital to toss out any opinions that belong to other people -- they should be the first to go!

Capricorn December 22 - January 19

Gossip is like fast food: It seems delicious before and during, but later on you just end up feeling disgusted with yourself. If coworkers or friends insist on swapping other people’s secrets and want you to join in, just find a way to discreetly move away. There’s no need to pass judgment or call them out -- it’s just not your way to indulge in pointless chit-chat.

Aquarius January 20 - February 18

The universe works in mysterious ways, so don’t dismiss something or someone that’s come into your life for no apparent reason. They might bring an important lesson for you to learn. If you choose to avoid it now, it will almost certainly reappear in a much more abrupt and confrontational form! It’s much easier to go along for the ride and get all you can out of these freaky circumstances.

Pisces February 19 - March 20

Projecting certain traits onto others can be fun, but why not leave that to Hollywood for now? Let’s face it -- assuming pretty much anything about anyone real just leads to more hassle than anything else. Before you start imagining that everyone else has a perfectly fulfilled life, just remember that they’re only human, just like you, with equal (albeit different) problems. Suddenly things should look a lot friendlier!

loss since 2008-09. There were rumours before the India series late last year that Smith threatened to resign over selection issues. His statement continued: “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the support from my parents and brother, my wife and children, my friends, my sponsors, my fans and to Cricket South Africa. I thank and honour the players who I have played with and those who have supported me and helped me to be the person and captain I am today. “I have been fortunate to have had many highs, amongst them leading and being part of the best Test team in the world. I will cherish these memories for the rest of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I bid my career a fond yet sad farewell.” One of many of the notable statistics in Smith’s career is that none of his 27th Test hundreds has come in a defeat. Stand-out performances that he will be remembered for include back-toback double hundreds against England in 2003, his series-winning innings at Edgbaston in 2008, captaining South Africa to a series win in Australia during which he came out to bat with a broken hand in Sydney and maintaining South Africa’s formidable record on the subcontinent. Smith’s retirement follows quickly on that of Jacques Kallis who quit Test cricket at the end of last year, although Kallis is aiming to extend his ODI career to take part in the World Cup. Smith’s one-day career had appeared

to be on the wane when he was dropped after last year’s series against Pakistan in the UAE. One of the impacts of Smith’s retirement is that he will now be able to play for Surrey as a non-overseas player due to his Irish citizenship. The first year of his deal was cut short by his need for ankle surgery. When he signed his contract with Surrey there were suggestions at the time that he could end his South Africa career there and then. Haroon Lorgat, the Cricket South Africa chief executive, admitted Smith’s decision had come as a shock and praised his “nerves of steel”. “Although Graeme’s decision to retire from all forms of international cricket comes as a surprise to all of us, we must respect him for deciding to call time,” he said. “Knowing him as well as I do, having been instrumental as a selector in appointing him as a young captain, he would not have taken this decision lightly or without a great deal of thought. “He has captained the Proteas for more than a decade and he will draw a lot more satisfaction from the fact that he leaves our Test team at the top of the world and in such good health rather than from all the personal records he has achieved as the longest-serving captain the game has ever seen in the demanding Test format. “I would like us to remember Graeme for his nerves of steel and his match-winning performances that were synonymous with some of the most remarkable fourth innings victory chases of all-time. These included setting up the 414run chase against Australia at Perth and his series-clinching innings at Edgbaston in 2008, not to mention the unbeaten century the last time he faced Australia at Newlands in 2011. “His role in setting up the famous 438-win over Australia in 2006 was also a performance never to be forgotten. “He can leave the game with pride and he thoroughly deserves the gratitude of our nation for leading the Proteas with much distinction. “From a personal point of view I am thrilled that I was part of the panel that appointed him captain in 2003 when his first major assignment was a tough tour to England and I feel privileged to see him now move on to the next stage of his career. He has been a mighty warrior, a leader of men and an exceptional part of our international cricket.

`Queen’s Baton’ traverses ... From Back Page

Bishops’ High School, who was joined by others for a photo opportunity. Then chaos erupted as there was no control whatsoever over the traffic situation, as drivers, not knowing the importance or significance of the Baton, tried to force their way to disrupt the free flow of the procession. When the Baton reached City Hall where it was to be received by Georgetown Mayor Hamilton Green, he was nowhere around and in his absence, Deputy Mayor of Georgetown Patricia ChaseGreen took hold of it from the bearer and walked with it to Parliament Building where it

was supposed to be handed over to the Speaker of the National Assembly Raphael Trotman, but on arrival there., the Speaker was nowhere around, neither was the Deputy Speaker. It was at this point that Mayor Hamilton arrived with a vehicle and he was followed immediately by Speaker Raphael Trotman who walked with the Baton to the Bank of Baroda and handed it over to the Glasgow 2014 amateur boxing hopefuls. The Queen’s Baton Relay offers an unparalleled opportunity to showcase each nation and territory in the Commonwealth family. The journey is a chance for Scotland and Glasgow to shine

as economic, culture and education opportunities are created. The Relay was launched on July 9 last year from the Buckingham Palace, where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11 placed her message to the Commonwealth into the Baton. The Baton then departed from Glasgow for its epic journey, beginning in Asia, visiting India, the host nation of the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. Over a period of 248 days, the Baton will travel sequentially through each nation creating an engaging journey through Asia, Oceania, Africa, Americas (South), Caribbean and Americas (North), before returning to Europe and the United Kingdom.

Gibson says third ODI a big ‘final’ for Windies ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – West Indies coach Ottis Gibson has branded tomorrow’s decisive third One-Day International against England as a virtual final, and says he expects the regional side to treat the game with that level of importance. The hosts went down by three wickets in the second ODI on Sunday at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, two days after claiming an exciting 13-run victory in the first contest. “We’re building towards the 2015 World Cup and we’ve got to look at this game as such. This could be the World Cup final for us, so we have to get our ‘final faces’ on … and come out tomorrow and approach it in that way,” Gibson said. “We’re one game away from winning a series against a team ranked higher than we, which is a good achievement, so there’s all to play for and hopefully the guys are up for it on tomorrow.” West Indies were always up against it on Sunday after they were dismissed for 159 off 44.2 overs, after being sent in by England. Only Lendl Simmons with a top score of 70 got past 20, as the Windies’ batting struggled for the second straight game. Simmons inspired two partnerships – 51 with Darren Bravo (13) for the fourth wicket and a further 52 for the fifth wicket with captain Dwayne Bravo (20) – to pull West Indies around from 30 for three in the ninth over. However, once captain Bravo fell, the hosts lost their last six wickets for 26 runs as left-arm spinner Stephen Parry (3-32) and off-spinner James Tredwell (2-39) got stuck into the lower order. Simmons’ half-century followed up his 65 in Friday’s first ODI and Gibson singled him out for praise. “He has played very well. He’s done the job and it has always been sort of a restoration job trying to repair the damage that’s been done at the top,” Gibson noted.

“He usually opens but is batting in the middle order and he’s really holding up the middle order as he showed in the last two games. They’ve been two really good innings. He will look at it and think he could’ve turned one of those fifties into a hundred and then that gets us to 220 (in the second ODI) and it’s a different story. “I’m really pleased with how he’s playing and hopefully that form continues through the next match and into the T20s.” West Indies scented victory when they reduced England to 105 for seven thanks to two-wicket hauls from left-arm spinner Nikita Miller and seamer Dwayne Bravo. Off-spinner Sunil Narine was brilliant, conceding just 25 runs from his ten overs and grabbing the vital wicket of Luke Wright, but the experience of Ravi Bopara (38 not out) and captain Stuart Broad (28 not out) saw the visitors home. “160 was never really going to be enough but the guys fought

really hard. It was a gallant effort to try and defend that 160 and to get them seven (wickets) down,” Gibson acknowledged. “Even then we had a couple of chances to get Broad out and that would have changed the game and tilted it in our favour but that wasn’t to be. The way guys fought was pleasing. “It was a good idea to bring in Nikita after we saw the way the pitch played in the first game. There was not a lot of massive turn but it was slow so Nikita came in and bowled very well and Sunil – he’s the number one bowler in the world in this format. He didn’t get the wickets he deserved today, he beat the bat a lot and tried really hard to bowl us to victory but it wasn’t meant to be.” “He bowled well, Nikita bowled well also coming in for his first game and I also thought the seamers bowled well. Like I said, it was a really good effort to try and defend that low score.”

Johnson, Harris bamboozle South Africa By Nick Said

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (Reuters) - Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris bowled Australia, leading by 234 runs with 10 wickets left, into a winning position on the third day of the third and final Test against South Africa at Newlands yesterday. Australia were 27 without loss in their second innings at the close, having bowled the home team out for 287 and decided not to enforce the follow-on. David Warner blazed his way to 25 not out while Chris Rogers was unbeaten on one. Johnson took four for 42 and Harris claimed three for 63 after visiting captain Michael Clarke declared their first innings on the overnight score of 494 for seven, leaving himself undefeated on 161. Left-arm paceman Johnson maintained his red-hot form and seamer Harris swung the ball both ways to bamboozle the South African batsmen. “We bowled really well as a team and worked hard to

get that ball to go and reverse which was important,” Johnson said in a TV interview. “We saw the ball wasn’t swinging normally so we tried to rough one side up and thankfully it worked really well. “If you hit the wicket hard there is enough there and there was a little bit of variable bounce as the ball got older. It’s a bit like an Adelaide wicket, it will be lbws and bowleds later in the game,” added Johnson. Harris removed dangermen Graeme Smith for five, Hashim Amla for 38 and JP Duminy for four. The dismissals of Smith and Duminy were similar, balls that shaped away from the left-handers and found the edge to give wicketkeeper Brad Haddin comfortable catches. REVERSE SWING Amla succumbed to reverse swing, playing down the wrong line as the ball clattered into his stumps. “I love being at the other end bowling with Ryan,”

... Australia lead by 234 with 10 wickets left

Johnson said. “And you can’t forget James Pattinson coming in, he has been sitting on the sidelines for a long time but he did really well.” Pattinson took two wickets and only Faf du Plessis (67) and Alviro Petersen (53) showed serious resistance, the latter scoring the fastest half-century by a South African against Australia in 50 balls. It beat the previous record of 56 deliveries by Barry Rich-

An in-form Ryan Harris removed JP Duminy cheaply, as Brad Haddin took his fourth catch.

Graeme Smith announces retirement

GRAEME Smith has announced he will retire from international cricket at the conclusion of the final Test against Australia in Cape Town. Smith, 33, is playing his 117th Test match - 110 of which have been as captain - and revealed the news to his teammates after the third day’s play at Newlands. He said finishing on his home ground felt like the perfect ending and that it was something he had been considering since ankle surgery last year. “This has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make in my life,” he said. “It’s a decision that I have been considering since my ankle surgery in April last year. I have a young family to consider, and I felt that retiring at Newlands would be the best way to end it because I have called this place home since I was 18 years old. “I have always been someone who has left everything out there on the field for my team and for my country. “I’m extremely honoured and proud to have had the privilege to lead so many wonderful players and to have been a part of building the Proteas culture to what it is today. It is a culture that every player can be, and is, immensely proud of.”

In the current series, with one innings remaining, Smith has made just 42 runs and has been troubled especially by Mitchell Johnson. H e h a s n o t s c o re d a

Grenada PM, Seaga named Easy going for Jamaica to CONCACAF task force in seven-wicket win

MIAMI, Florida (CMC) – Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell and former Jamaica Prime Minister Edward Seaga have been named to a nine-member Task Force established by the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) to study the viability of a professional football league in the Caribbean. The Speaker of the Bermuda House of Assembly, Randolph Horton, is also included on the task force that CONCACAF Monday said would be backed by advisers from the major leagues in England and the United States. It said the task force would examine the feasibility of a Caribbean professional football league, as the Confederation deepens its commitment to the growth of the game across the region. This will be the second effort to establish a professional league in the Caribbean.. A previous attempt to institute a Caribbean league lasted from 1992-1994, when clubs from as far north as Jamaica and south as Guyana competed in the now defunct Caribbean Professional Football League. “I am certain that there are immense untapped opportunities for football in the Caribbean,” said CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb. “We need to evaluate thoroughly how best to convert potential into a viable structure that could create new futures for clubs, players, fans and the game as a whole.” The task force, chaired by Horton, also includes leading figures from the two biggest leagues in CONCACAF -- Don Garber, Commissioner of Major League Soccer in the United States, and Decio de Maria, President of Liga MX in Mexico. It is scheduled to hold its first meeting in Miami on March 24. “Our focus will be to analyse the feasibility of a sustainable business model – one that can serve as the cornerstone to build a league that provides a platform for Caribbean talent, as it develops equity and value in the long term,” said Garber.

Dr Keith Mitchell Chief Executive of the English Premier League, Richard Scudamore, said the intention is to make the entire executive team available to offer assistance to the Caribbean in realising the potential for top-class professional football. The task force is charged with analysing all the possible options for developing a sustainable league structure in the Caribbean, with the objective of improving playing standards and overall professionalism. According to CONCACAF, as some nations in the Caribbean possess established domestic leagues, the group will review current infrastructures and assess what competitive format would achieve the best outcomes for long-term success. The members are: Dr Keith Mitchell (Prime Minister of Grenada); Damien Hughes (General Secretary, Caribbean Football Union); Simon Firth (Partner, Maples and Calder, Cayman Islands); Don Garber (Commissioner, US Major League Soccer); . Edward Seaga (former Prime Minister of Jamaica and Chairman of Jamaica’s Premier League); David John Williams (Owner/President, W Connection Football Club, Trinidad and Tobago); Decio de Maria (President, Liga MX); Yves Jean-Bart (President, Haitian Football Federation) and Randy Harris (President, Barbados Football Federation). Special advisers to the Task Force are - The English Premier League; Jefferson Slack (Senior Vice President, Global Business Development, IMG) and Kieran Foley (Group Head Marketing, Digicel). ReThink Management and MCM Consulting Ltd. have been named as consultants to the group.

KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) – Jamaica sent an early warning to their rivals as they brushed aside Guyana by seven wickets on the final day of their first round WICB Regional Four-Day game here yesterday. Set 88 for victory, the hosts easily reached their target with Nkrumah Bonner striking 38

and opener Horace Miller, 29. West Indies left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul picked up two for 34. Earlier, Guyana were dismissed for 264 in their second innings, after resuming the day on 219 for eight. They suffered an early blow when Devendra Bishoo was caught at the wicket off left-arm seamer Sheldon

Jerome Taylor finishes with five for 44.

Kuru Kururu Warriors & Timehri Falcons notch second victory KURU Kururu Warriors have taken over the lead in the Stag Beer/East Bank Football Association (EBFA) division-one League following their 3-1 win over Mocha Champs when action continued last Sunday at the Grove Playfield, East

Bank Demerara. Also recording their second in as many matches were Timehri Falcons who needled a resurgent Diamond United in a pulsating match-up. The Warriors, based on the Linden/Soesdyke Highway, looked

a solid unit in another compact showing. They were led to victory by Ryan Scott who netted a brace of goals, rocking the network in the 6th and 52nd minutes Rakesh Haimnauth sealed the deal with a goal of his own in the 59th minute.

Mocha were able to net a consolation goal in the 63rd minute through the effort of Travis Anthony. Timehri Falcons, one of the teams favoured to lift the champion’s trophy and first prize of $300 000, lived up to their billing but were pushed to the hilt by a determined young Diamond side. It did not take too long for Timehri to assume the ascendancy, breaching the Diamond defence and goalkeeper in the 15th minute when Collis Massiah found the back of the nets. It was the only time that the Falcons were able to penetrate with any success. Diamond fought valiantly for the equalising goal but were not fortunate on the day. They, however, proved that they are improving with every game. This Sunday, Agricola Red Triangle will come up against Herstelling FC in the opening match at 13:00hrs with feature play between Grove Hi Tech and Soesdyke Falcons.

Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Hemraj replace injured duo … Johnson eager to make comeback from knee injury

Flashback! Guyana’s opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul goes up on his toes to cut at this delivery, when his team engaged Barbados at the Kensington Oval during last year’s tournament. By Calvin Roberts


ESPITE going under to Jamaica by seven wickets in their first round match of this year’s West Indies Cricket Board Regional four-day championships at Sabina Park yesterday, the Rayon Griffith-led Senior Selection Committee of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has kept faith with the 11 players who were fit to compete in that contest. However, the in-form batsmen in the recently concluded WICB NAGICO Super50 tournament, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan who were both injured and did not participate in the first round, will be out of the team for the second round contest, a day/ night affair against Barbados at

the Guyana National Stadium from Friday. Chanderpaul’s 17-year-old son Tagenarine Chanderpaul who made his debut last year against the Leeward Islands and has to date scored 176 runs at an average of 22.00 with a highest score of 42, and Chanderpaul Hemraj are their replacements. The younger Chanderpaul recently returned from the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh with the young West Indies team who finished in sixth place and for whom he was the most consistent batsman with two half-centuries and one century. On the other hand, the 20-year-old Hemraj, who went under his first stint at the WICB’s High Performance Centre last year, has played

three first class matches for Guyana since making his debut against Trinidad and Tobago two years ago, aggregating 57 runs at an average of 9.50 with a topscore of 29. He last played for Guyana in last year’s Regional four-day tournament against Jamaica at the venue for Friday’s encounter and judging from the present form displayed by the only fit 11 in Jamaica, can find himself along with the younger Chanderpaul in the lineup for Friday’s match. Tagenarinel will be thrust into the opening position alongside either Assad Fudadin or Sewnarine Chattergoon, while it is left to be seen if Hemraj will gain a place in the middle order, especially with the absence of both Sarwan and the elder Chanderpaul. Meanwhile, appointed captain of the squad Leon Johnson, who picked up a knee injury prior to the team’s departure for Jamaica, yesterday told Chronicle Sport his rehabilitating work is coming along excellently, while he is eagerly anticipating his return to the fore. The 26-year-old Johnson

said he had a bright smile on his face when the doctor told him no surgery would be required and will be returning for another assessment tomorrow. “I am much better now than when I picked up the injury and even though the doctor did not give me a time frame when I can return to playing the game, since it all depends on how quickly the injury heals, he made me smile when he said no surgery is required. “I was really disappointed when I picked up the injury as I was looking forward to leading my country in this tournament, either for the first or second round, but I will be back hungrily, especially after watching them catapult for 117 in the first innings,” said Johnson. The Georgetown Cricket Club left-hander, who was Guyana’s leading batsman in the said tournament last year, is of the view that the team should have scored more than the meagre total they got in the first innings, especially after their second innings display. “Yes, we were missing two key players in Ronnie and Shiv, but at the same time that should

Chanderpaul Hemraj not be an excuse since their absence paved the way for another player or two to step up and that is not what occurred in the first innings.” He added, “Despite such, kudos must be given to the bowlers who did well to restrict Jamaica to 294, with Permaul (Veerasammy) picking up a five-for, on such a track that was conducive for batting, while our batsmen, led by Vishal ‘Cheesy’ Singh, posted a much better total in the second innings. “I think that despite the loss of wickets when some batsmen were well set, they showed the kind of application that was lacking in the first innings and once they have the same attitude, they can trump the

Barbadians in the second round from Friday.” Once again, Christopher Barnwell will lead the team in the absence of both Johnson and Shivnarine, with Permaul as his deputy, while Julian Moore has been added to the coaching team as the assistant to Esaun Crandon. It will be the first day/night first class match at the venue and also the first of two for Guyana in this year’s tournament, while Barbados, who went under to the Windward Islands by nine wickets in the first round which was also a day/night affair, will be playing their second of four matches under lights. The team reads: Sewnarine Chattergoon, Assad Fudadin, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Narsingh Deonarine, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Anthony Bramble, Christopher Barnwell (captain), Amir Khan, Veerasammy Permaul (vice-captain), Devendra Bishoo, Ronsford Beaton, Keon Joseph and Vishal Singh. The manager is Alvin Johnson and the coach is Esaun Crandon, with Julian Moore as his assistant.

Club (GCC) ground, Alpha “Boys’ Town Football Club

is one of Jamaica’s brightest club with a great story behind them, representing a community; Trench Town, that was once the light of Jamaica,” said Reggae Super Star Duane Stephenson who is here as part of the nightly after-football entertainment planned by the organisers. “Most of the reggae artistes in Jamaica present and past support the club and we are happy that Vizions Sounds is giving them an opportunity to showcase their talent outside of Jamaica. “I know, the club is playing plenty football right now and I know that Guyana has a strong history in the sport and has some strong players as well, but what I’m happy about also is the fact that the tournament brings together the players to share their different culture as well,” Stephenson said. Stephenson will perform on Friday at Buxton while tomorrow another reggae sensation ‘Ginja’ performs, and

on Sunday evening, Dancehall group Voicemail and Christopher Martin will take the stage. Boys’ Town was founded as a Christian project in 1940 by Reverend Father Hugh Sherlock for the young people in Kingston’s Trench Town community. The team have won the national league title on three occasions, the most recent in 1988. After finishing runners-up

to Tivoli Gardens F.C. in the 2010/2011 season, they started the 2011/2012 season on a low after fielding an ineligible player (Marvin Morgan, Jr.) in their first two matches and were deducted one point. The team currently sits in ninth position in the Red Strip Jamaican Premier League; picking up nine losses, drawing seven while winning six games in the process.
