[www.inewsguyana.com] – The APNU+AFC government has taken the decision to dismiss Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Health, Leslie Cadogan.

iNews understands that Cadogan was sent on accumulated leave on July 20, 2015 by Minister of State Joseph Harmon. His dismissal took on September 1, 2015 and is due to alleged gross negligence and misconduct as it relates to his duties.

Acting in the position is Trevor Thomas. A letter dated August 31, 2015 from Harmon to Cadogan blamed him for issues related to the drug procurement, specifically the lack of accountability in the delivery of drugs to the Ministry, failure to ensure that the remaining 50% of $1.1B delivery of supplies was done.

According to the letter, “It is therefore in view of this gross negligence and misconduct in the performance of your duties that your services have been terminated.”

  1. SWEETIECAKE, IT’S UNFORTUNATE THAT YOU DIDN’T GET MY MESSAGE. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME ENVYING THIS MAN WHO WAS “A PRINCIPLED PERSON BUT GOT COMPRISED [ I GUESS YOU MEAN COMPROMISED ] BY THE PPP GOVERNMENT.” YES ,THE MAN HAS A HOTEL AT ONVERWAGT.BUT DOES THAT MEAN THAT HE IS FILTHY RICH AND GOT IT BY FOUL MEANS?YOU SHOULD BE PROUD THAT A BROTHER IS STRIVING TO UPLIFT HIMSELF ECONOMICALLY UNLIKE SO MANY OF OUR KIND . CONTINUE WASTING YOUR TIME SWEETIECAKE AND KEEP ON ENVYING . SOON YOU’LL “EAT THE BREAD THAT THE DEVIL NEEDS.”

  2. Bobby a mind is a terrible thing to waste. You must learn all over again how to read and comprehend. You sound like you are describing your sorry self. Go take a seat and learn to read and understand and not derail what you read.

  3. SO , SWEETIECAKE, IT’S A SIN FOR MR. CADOGAN TO OWN A BUSINESS AND PROSPER ? YOU WANT HIM TO BE LIKE YOU, A MENDICANT WHO ENVIES OTHERS WHO DO SOMETHING TO IMPROVE THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING? DID THIS GENTLEMAN COMMIT ANY FRAUD? YOU ARE IMPLYING THIS , BUT NOT EVEN THE GOVT IS SAYING SO ? I NOW SEE WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE MIRED IN POVERTY– IDLENESS AND ENVY .

  4. Was indeed a principled person, but got comprised by the PPP government, what a pity. However he is filthy rich now has his own hotel at Onverwagt among other sustainable income.

  5. It’s so sad that Mr. Cadogan allowed himself to get caught up in the politics with the PPP. It’s one thing to lose your job for a change of government, but it’s another matter to lose it for allegations that will taint your character. I hope he has enough money like the others to live out his time.
    GPHC staff were always complimentary on this man’s work ethic as being very principled when he was the Admin Director…even those who did not like him. But I guess it just goes to show that every one has their price and you have to be of a certain caliber to work closely with Mr ‘slap and strip’ Bheri..
