  1. day,,What are the leaders doing about the sky rocketing crime rate and the constant inhumane treatment of our Guyanese Citizens that we in America observe each and every day, can someone please tell me?

  2. If the report of the emergency workers with the Ambulance is true, they need to be first fired then arrested and even charged this is very wicked.
