[www.inewsguyana.com] – Prime Ministerial Candidate for A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change coalition, Moses Nagamootoo launched a stinging attack against incumbent President Donald Ramotar and former President Bharrat Jagdeo during his address to thousands of supporters at Whim, Corentyne Berbice.

He said Ramotar is being overshadowed by the former President, whom he described as being fake.

“Everybody knows Ramotar is only the guy who cuts ribbon, shakes hands and kisses babies… but he is not the real President…could the real Guyanese President stand up? He makes all the excuses for corruption and failed projects in Guyana but is overshadowed by a fake/counterfeit within the PPP who masquerades as the President and that’s Bharrat Jagdeo,” Nagamootoo said.

Nagamootoo, a former PPP Member, described Jagdeo as a hypocrite and criticized him for comparing his home with that of PPP founder, Dr Cheddi Jagan.

According to Nagamootoo, Guyana has to “fetch Jagdeo like goodies” but the new administration will “cut out the waste, the extravagance and the corruption.”

Meanwhile, he said that within the first 100 days in office, the coalition intends to establish a code of conduct for ministers, call Local Government Elections, increase public servants salary by 10 percent across the board and increase old age pension to $15,000.

He also noted that that after a thorough investigation, the coalition government would reduce the cost to cross the Berbice Bridge by half.

He told the Whim rally that he is “back home with clean hands and a clear conscience,” given the fact that he grew up in Whim.



  1. Why y’all don’t shut up and let’s see what the results bring. Silence is golden. I love you apnu + afc. Vote change and not racism. Granger and his colleague make a great team

  2. I never knew that whim village is so very rich with so many thousands of African brethren. Maybe the residents of whim, has migrated. Look I think I’m a little confused.

  3. ”Ring ting ting, everybody hear this ting”( merrymen) APNU+AFC making a lot of noises promising but ”all they do is promising”. but so help me Guyanese, it’s the PPP/C gon celebrate in carnival style. They can’t deliver because they would be sour-faced long before the end of the 12th May. When in opposition a lot of promises are being made eg: according to the Moses-not the biblical Moses, ”we go jail some ah dem”. Moses and co. are dead meat so let them try keep on promising/fooling the voters. Lets see who gon laugh the loudest

  4. Whim has a new color now yellow and green. Granger did not tell the couple whim people why he doesn’t trust Nagamootoo the “Nimakaram”. Of course the large crowd he brought from G.T. who cross the bridge that the Progressive PPP build knows that. He also forget to tell Berbician how he plan to house, clothe, and feed the nation, so that his PNC Supporter doesn’t have to work.
    Hey Nimakaram, you’re calling God’s creation a fake? Dr. Jagdeo is so much that you would never be! Don’t compare yourself with the President. Look at your belly how fast it swell. Who is responsible for that?

  5. There were Hundreds of vehicle transporting people to this rally. I guess the Berbice River Bridge made the most money yesterday. You guys can ask them which day in the year they made more money? The answer will definitely be Sunday 29th March.

  6. Moses is the hypocrite.
    He grow up in Whim but moved to West Coast Berbice to teach.
    He, by any standard was a lousy school teacher.
    He was babysat by the PYO and PPP comrades there.
    He could not land a job in the Whim/ Port Mourant area where Indians ruled supreme.

  7. The Indo guyanse who support these clowns should understand that granger is using them for baits, one of the symbols we all disliked in the pass is the palm tree. Look at these foolish indo Guyanese now embracing the palm , this man granger is possessed with burnham spirit of tirany. This man motive is to use the Indians for his own demonstic plans and purpose.

  8. Where is Moses “11% Indian votes” ??? Where is the unity???? I can only see people from one ethnic group who do not reflect the population make up from Berbice. AFCAPNU is a failure.

  9. Also naga and his man friend will re-introduce national service. The Guyanaese public must follow history about granger and the guns, about granger and his gang of thieves.
