[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) David Granger is calling on the Private Sector Commission, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Human Rights Association and the Religious Organisations to convince President Donald Ramotar to remove Clement Rohee as Home Affairs Minister.
Granger is of the opinion that they longer Rohee is in charge of the security of Guyana, the crime situation will keep increasing.
“The longer they keep him there, the worse the situation will become,” Granger said.
The political opposition parties have been calling for Rohee’s removal for over a year now and according to the APNU, the Party is exploring other options aimed at removing the Home Affairs Minister from office. Granger said the Party has done all it possibly could in the National Assembly.
The APNU had moved a no confidence motion against Rohee, which was passed in the national assembly. According to Granger, it is quite clear that after seven years of Rohee being in office, the crime situation has worsened. “There needs to be changes at the top,” Granger said. Additionally, Former Commissioner of Police, and now APNU Parliamentarian, Winston Felix also accused Rohee of micro managing and being too intrusive in the operations of the Guyana Police Force.
Earlier this week, the minority political party – the Alliance for Change (AFC) also reiterated their call for Rohee to step down, stating that he is only adding to the crime situation by remaining the Home Affairs Minister.
