[www.inewsguyana.com] – Social activist for Guyana’s opposition Jinnah ‘Mike’ Rahman has described former member of A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) and Member of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) Africo Selman as “leff-over food.”

Selman tendered her resignation from the Party on February 26, saying she was tired of the infighting and power struggle within.

Rahman, in a blatant ad-hominem attack on Selman , said her resignation does not have much of an effect on the APNU/AFC (Alliance For Change) coalition.

“The walk over to the PPP by an unknown former APNU member of parliament , Africo Selman, is of no consequence in relation to the growing number of people that are lining up to join the new – massive Opposition – Coalition – APNU- AFC. The PPP is clutching at straws, as it sinks further into the waters of Berbice, Demerara and Essequibo Rivers. On the 12 May, 2015 – it will be found wrecked in the Atlantic Ocean ! In politics, an individual matters – when he or she has a large “interest-group” that is part of his or her constituency. In this case, this individual was largely unknown to the Guyanese working masses,” said Rahman on Facebook.

Rahman also indicated that Selman was never seen to be someone who had an independent mind.

“The question is; was she expected to betray the Opposition and vote for the “No Confidence vote orchestrated by the AFC”? No one knew her true motive, but her recent association with the Ramotar leadership links her to rumours that she might have voted against the no-confidence motion,” he went on in his tirade against Selman.

He concluded that one of Selman’s reasons for leaving was because she would not have been a part of the next Parliament.
