  1. You know!!!
    Children need to know the hard facts of Guyana. It is what happens, and you should grow them up, not terrified, but sensitised. You cannot muzzle the bad state of affairs the country is in to protect the children in it. They too are getting hit and run over. smh

  2. Really isn’t that what the news media job? So now you want to shut down the media I guess its in the makings very soon they will be gone too.

  3. I don’t appreciate the gross articles on suicide, accidents and murders inthe media. Children are reading the articles. Not healthy.
