  1. Citizens of Guyana are in a financial crisis (no jobs). On a daily basis there are reports of robbery or murder , but Venezuela is being target for having poor standards of living. What is the Guyana Gov. doing about this diabolical crisis in Guyana? Nothing, I guess, but blame the previous Gov.

  2. A cook has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment by Magistrate Ann McLennan for stealing underwear and other items.

    Armed robbers whom are UG student commit armed robbery of over $9M and received community service as their sentence.
    I hope the UN people they are now monitoring corruption in Guyana not turn a blind eye to this atrocity.
