[] – Senior journalist attached to the Kaieteur News, Leonard Gildarie has now broken his silence on the infamous profanity laced telephone conversation between himself and former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, making it clear that he and Nandlall were never ‘best friends’ or classmates at Queens College.

Gildarie decided to speak on the matter a few hours after Nandlall himself spoke publicly about the issue for the first time on the radio programme ‘Hard Talk’ aired on 90.1 Love FM on Sunday, July 06, where he advanced his position, contending that he did not fathom that his remarks would have been made public since he presumed he was speaking to a former classmate and not a journalist.

But Gildarie in a statement on his Facebook Page dismissed the remarks by Nandlall that they were friends.

“I am getting a little tired of this classmate thing…I have stayed quiet throughout this entire episode. Mr Nandlall again says I am his classmate…the DPP Ms Hack used the argument of classmates also. My statement to the police who came to my home to arrest me last year never mentioned anything of a best friend. Could Mr Nandlall say which classes we were in together at QC? We were best friends… where did we ever go for a drink?

“Who were my form master or mistress? Which year was I in? Does he know my parents? The answers will speak for themselves. The DPP erroneously concluded that because I was a school chum of Mr Nandlall then the statements has to be taken as such. How did the learned DPP arrive at that decision?

“Again I believe as a journalist I should not be making the news but rather writing it. It is unfortunate that Mr Nandlall cannot keep his mouth shut,” Gildarie said.

In October 2014, the recorded telephone conversation between the two was released by the Kaieteur News and went viral, with Nandlall detailing a possible ‘hit’ on the newspaper.

The recording prompted a criminal investigation by the Guyana Police Force and also saw calls and protests for Nandlall to be fired as Attorney General.




  1. SLY….Its clear that you are not too educated,(I’ve arrived at this conclusion after reading your ever so often, uneducated comments)hence I’m sure you have never heard of the term “context” as it pertains to English language and speaking. Google it,Revise it,Study it or maybe ask someone with a brain that works, and then come back and tell me if your comments were not “Blaspheming”. Oh, but then again you probably don’t even understand how to do any of those things. Oh well.

  2. SLY,let me tell you something, you are threading on dangerous grounds. If you are going to talk politics fine,if you are going to be one sided fine,if you are going to deny the truth fine, but don’t blaspheme OK. You make that comparison and then say the he is not in any way like Christ,so why even make that comparison or imply it.You could have used so many different examples of betrayal but you use that of the bible. Sir be careful OK. Blasphemy does not sit well with God.

  3. eddie you are a first class idiot to make such a statement, where a murder or an intended murder is to be commited and you fail to inform the authorities regardlees of your job you will be considered an accessory and charged for murder, so if you don’t know the law just shut up and stop making assanine staements

  4. LOL—“”””Again I believe as a journalist I should not be making the news but rather writing it”””””,,,,, you call yourself a journalist as much as this recorded conversation was disgusting by a high level government agent a journalist does not make public his conversation because you protect your source at all time so no you will always be in the news because you are not a journalist

  5. Even Jesus Christ was betrayed by one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot for the famous kiss and the thirty pieces of silver, if I can remember the scriptures correctly. How much did Leonard Gildarie get from the boss man?
    Also, Peter one of Jesus’ closest disciples denied knowing him
    Matthew 26:34
    “Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.”
    John 13:38
    Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
    Mr Nandlall, obviously you are not anywhere close to Jesus Christ, you never claimed to be, but you should remember that some people can be easily corrupted by a few pieces of silver and when faced with the truth, they deny everything they hold dearest to their hearts and principles disappear
