[www.inewsguyana.com] – Once again the concerns over Pradoville 1 & 2 lands that were sold to members and purported supporters of the former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) administration have arisen and PPP General Secretary, Clement Rohee is defending the acquisition of his property.

Pradoville 2 was developed during the last term of Former President Bharrat Jagdeo on the Sparendaam foreshore, East Coast Demerara with properties being sold to persons for as little as $1.5M.

Former Public Service Minister, Jennifer Westford; Compton Bourne, former Head of the Caribbean Development Bank and UG Chancellor, Ghansham Singh along with Kamini Parag-Singh and Florrie Loretta Ramnauth were among those who received house lots in the controversial housing scheme.prado

Rohee, when questioned how he was able to afford the property on his $579,000 salary, pointed out that he acquired a loan from the New Building Society.

“I got a loan from the Bank…go and check with New Building Society…check with them and you will see…King Kong ain’t got sh!t on my head,” said Rohee.

Pradoville became a public concern after it was reported that the house lots were acquired very cheap in comparison to the prices a normal citizen would pay for a plot of land.

Rohee’s attention was drawn to this concern and he stonewalled the question saying he was not aware of the specifics of the situation.

“I can’t explain that because I don’t have those details…I never made that kind of investigations. If I am offered a piece of land for that kind of money then I will determine if I can afford it…call it a good deal or a bad deal it was just an investment on my part,” said Rohee.

  1. Here is a former government minister that is saying that he wasnt aware of the details of the development of the area he was offered a piece and he made an investment. How much was that loan Clement and how much left to be paid?
    This is the arrogance that got them out in the first place, simple question how much was the investment and what was your equity in the NBS loan and how much is left to be paid.
    I advise the government to take back all the undeveloped house lots in the area and sell it at market price and give that money to UG. My brotherinlaw said that Raj Singh wanted to take a Guysuco plot away from him sometime back well it will serve him right take it back from him and all the rest.
