  1. Part of the proceeds are from tickets sold. This is NOT the ONLY gov’t to have a State Dinner…where does the money usually come from??!! Taxes, Treasury, loans, etc. If this (dinner) is going to run Guyana into the ground, so be it!!!

  2. Maybe APNU/AFC needs more scholars like Clement Rohee,, HarrY Persaud Nokta, Clinton Collymore, Janet Jagan, Indra Chanderpal, Kellawan Lall, Juan Edghill, Donald Ramotar, Zulficar Mustapha, Faisal Jafarally and of course Rima Rohee.

  3. Eat your hearts OUT,,,lol bongo drums is the order of the day,tassa drums and curry RIP I love how sad people expose hatred,,are we all not supposed to be Guyanese?

  4. All this administration know to do is to spend big. Plundering the treasury for “jump-ups” – living for the moment. The IMF just warned Granger about their out-of-control spending spree and personal salary increases. These people are stealing from the poor. They cut all water and electrical subsidies for the pensioners, institute parking fees for kite flyers, vendors, visitors of Georgetown Hospital, etc. What are they doing with all the money – they increased their personal salaries and is decorating everywhere with green and yellow flags… This is what happens when dunces run a country…
