  1. The tourism minister is a useless piece of crap just like her boss –incompetence at the highest level-the fish rot from the head.

  2. Welcome to the promise land the APNU thugs at their best —no jobs what do you expect these good for nothing will do…the economy at a standstill while the coalition Govt spending the ppl money like there is no tomorrow.

  3. LOL SO MUCH for tourism! This government keep lying to the public that GUYANA has a reduced crime rate from the PPP days but the news, media and stats seems to be saying otherwise….Economy is dead, so everyone is stealing for survival….this government is doing NOTHING to help the local people and everything to help themselves….
