[]General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Civic has rejected claims that there is fear and hopelessness stalking the people of Guyana.

Rohee was asked the question on Monday, January 13 during the Party’s weekly press conference, to which he responded that he has lived through that time, and does not see it happening at the moment in Guyana.

He made reference to the time of rigged elections.

“People were becoming hopeless that they couldn’t elect a government of their choice. I’m not saying that because I’m a member of the ruling Party or because I’m a Minister of the government,” Rohee told the news conference.

Rohee, who is also the country’s Home Affairs Minister, further questioned that if people are so scared to walk the streets, then how can one explain the amount of people who converge on Regent Street during the Christmas season.

“If that is indeed the case, how do you explain the hundreds of people that were walking the streets at Christmas in downtown Georgetown? How do you explain the thousands of people that turn out at the shows for example the recent one at the Stadium?  If people want to go to something, they will go to it and…I don’t support the view that people lock up themselves in their homes and don’t go anywhere.”
