  1. The government n ministers are doing a bunch of stupidness. The crime rate is really high n instead of closing down bars at 2 am they should try n upgrade security to try stop robbery. But this is change people voted for from bad to worst

  2. Very Sad. Deepest Condolences to the family of the Constable who lost his life in the line of duty as well as the members of the Guyana Police Force.who lost a colleague. May his soul rest in Peace.
