[www.inewsguyana.com] – City Mayor Hamilton Green has confirmed that Carol Sooba’s appointment as Town Clerk for the City of Georgetown has been officially revoked by the government and a replacement will soon fill the post.
The Mayor told iNews on Friday, July 03 that Sooba received her letter of dismissal from the government. The letter is dated July 01 and was sent to Sooba by the Minister of Communities Ronald Bulkan.
It states that “Please be informed that your appointment as Town Clerk (ag) of the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown is hereby revoked.”
Her dismissal takes effect on July 07. Several efforts made by iNews to contact Sooba were unsuccessful.
Sooba, who has had a strenuous tenure as Town Clerk with her appointment being confirmed at one time and a Court Ruling subjecting her to the position of de facto Town Clerk, was sent on administrative leave by the council on May 25, shortly after the APNU+AFC government took office.
There have been many challenges to Sooba’s appointment in the past, with the APNU+AFC while in Opposition, stating that she is not qualified for the post.
