[] – The Press and Publicity Unit of the Office of the President says that efforts are being made to authenticate “the integrity” of a recording in which President Donald Ramotar allegedly defended former President, Bharrat Jagdeo by calling an Aishailton resident stupid.

The audio recording emerged today with a voice believed to be that of the sitting President, who was at the time responding to a heckler during a recent meeting in the Amerindian village.

The villager raised concerns about the former President when Ramotar could be heard telling the villager: “You don’t know anything about Jagdeo; if he been here, he might have slap you, cause you stupid”.

Office of the President (OP) says that the meeting took place in the community three weeks ago.

“The specific incident being referred to involves the hinterland resident who attempted to disrupt the President’s public meeting using invectives, insulting and disparaging language towards Former President Bharrat Jagdeo. The tenor of the engagement represents the cut and trust of public meetings,” a press statement from the President’s Office noted.

The media release further noted, “The highlighting of this incident some three weeks after it is alleged to have taken place smacks of desperation on the part of the political opposition and its media outfits, and is no doubt an attempt to remain relevant particularly since Guyanese recently rejected the opposition’s calls to disrupt the Christmas season.”

According to the release, as the New Year beckons, particularly with General elections pending, the Administration can expect many more such attempts at “sensational reporting.”


  1. The Head of the PPP/C and the Guyana Government is promoting violence on the people who oppose their views, No wonder why there is so much violence here, The President and the PPP/C endorses it. This analogy is based on the president’s remarks to the young Amerindian man who opposed him.

  2. On this topic jai gray hemanda and the ppp fools cant talk the mouse get cheese i hope not cheese from the straw,,suck on it boys ,,or gays

  3. What evidence you need ,,to call the people you hope to vote for you STUPID,,,is just a reflection of who you are,,the ppp frustrated nothing going they way,,them ppl not stupid like the years you been fooling them, the world is advancing,,the PPP in park the gears not working,,

  4. lacking ordinary quickness and keenness of mind; dull.
    characterized by or proceeding from mental dullness; foolish; senseless: a stupid question.
    tediously dull, especially due to lack of meaning or sense; inane; pointless: a stupid party.
    annoying or irritating; troublesome: Turn off that stupid radio.
    in a state of stupor; stupefied: stupid from fatigue.

  5. Of course you can expect more of the truth to confront the PPP/C party. Amerindians are not stupid people, they are educated and will talk. The PPP/C is incapable and ignorant when it comes to people who oppose them. The president response is expected because he is a dunce and do not know how to act like a president of any country much less this corrupt one. Go Amerindians go. show them that you are not going to blindly accept their party or their perks as in the past. Look where those perks have gotten you “No way”.

  6. Telling a native man or woman if jackass was here he would slap you is nothing strange from this wish wash party,,the PPP is infested with nothings,its the chip of the PNC ,,guyana just nice, is NO BIG THING,,is just a simple and blessed man he spoke to,the ppl of the land ,,but what else to expect the buck now living in India,,Guyindia,,keep it up and come election day the only votes will be the votes from ??? I say question mark because the so confused the might vote for any other party,,you selling a car and bad talking it,,how smart,,oh i forget they all only good to thief and loot the funds,,

  7. He is acting president,donald duck just playing the part,BAR-rat is in comand,,he tell them all what to say and do is Burnhan all over again,,DIG -tate,,copy cats ,,

  8. Bharrat Jagdeo and the pppc really trying making Guyanese people a fool, don’t matter how President run Jagdeo running Guyana I would like to see Guyanese people open there eyes.

  9. I think the PPP is the desperate side… What a ridiculous argument. Not once they denied it. All the time these excuses are irrelevant.

  10. The opposition and it’s backers especially the two dailies would scrape from the bottom of the barrel to get at the PPP/Cadministration. It is evident they are running scared and are so concerned with their dismal performance in and out of parliament with no policies to put forward to the electorate. They keep beating the corruption drum without any evidence knowing fully well, that strategy isn’t working. What next would they come up with?

  11. Imagine Donald calling somebody stupid. Pot calling kettle bottom black. This country is such a joke.
    Anyways Donald said he was no jackass but he acting like one instead of a head of state.
