  1. The First Lady looks beautiful in her sleeveless dress , yet the public is still denied entry into Government places of business, even to the office of the First Lady. President Granger and the First Lady spoke out about the dress code rules , yet the hostile guards are still preventing the public from entering the buildings with sleeveless, short pants, slippers, ‘V’ neck tops. Here again shows the weakness of our President who cannot put a halt to this practice . Since there is nothing in the laws of Guyana prohibiting one from wearing the clothing of their choice , I would dare any security or police to put their hands on me preventing me from entering a place of business because of my attire.

Let us hear from you...
