  1. Fire the Commissioner of Police !! We need someone who can do something to stop this madness in Guyana. Why is no one doing anything to stop this insanity ? All you hear is the ‘bull…..” talk from the politicians and stats about that how crime in less.Don’t know but I seem to be hearing and seeing that more people are being murdered and robbed on a daily basis. We voted for a change with hope for betterment. We are seeing the same type of incompetence , maybe worse ??

    • The cake shop president –what do you expect from such a person —the man is a moron he wants ppl to come and invest so there will be more businesses and owners for the thugs to rob and kill.

Let us hear from you...
