    They are turning in their guns by the tens of thousands to Ramjattan becauseRamjattan told Guyana he will be a bad man at the end of the gun amnesty.
    PNC bad man Ramjattan will take good care of and protect all Guyanese from bandits and give all Guyanese the “good PNC life”
    One lady told me you have to give them time since they were elected for only 4 months.
    Fist I had to correct her–they were not elected but in fact selected and installed.
    Then I give her something to think of.
    Its the same PNC people whom for umpteen year keep the drum beat that PPP cant stop crimes PPP can not protect its people and that Rohee must go.
    Well then for all these years they were beating their drum they should have been ready willing and most able to take on bandits from day one after being installed.

  6. Guyana need to do something About these bandits, you cant even walk around safe in your own country. The new president aint doing shite About this, Guyana need a saloutin for this madness
