Meanwhile, the cabinet this week also gave its “no objection” to a $219M contract to procure medical supplies for the Georgetown Public Hospital Corp.



  1. I want know where the hell the ppp getting all this hundreds of million of dollars to spend. I think India giving this Government some Billion dollars.

  2. The Government need to approve some money to purchase surveillance system for every polling stations to monitor every details of the voting process. Possibly body cam too. The PNC/AFC has been doing good in their false and wicked Propaganda through Kaieteur News aka Kooteur news.
    We must not forget how they “RIG” the 1985 Elections in giving the PNC 77.6% and the PPP only 15.6%.
    Also 1973 Elections They used Jamaicans, babies, dead people, and other nationals to vote PNC. RIGGING is all PNC know.
