  1. These people have to be crazy. Granger is a very bad influence for those young souls. He with corrupt those tender mind. Its mango season , granger should brab his “sal bag” and go back damn to pick mangoes for is followers, his evil disciples.

  2. Congratulation to you Ms. Sandra Shivdat, Your work is a sign of vindication of what we stand for. There are many haters, that wish bad for Guyana. Some of them calls us “brain dead” etc. You have proven to be Progressive. Together we will build, and modernize Guyana. We know how to work, build, develop, and prosper. I take it for granted that you didn’t give Granger an donation. Granger and the PNC must never be trusted. He still need to tell us about those army guns.
