[www.inewsguyana.com] – Junior Minister of Communities, Keith Scott has accused Former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall of pedaling lies with regards to move by the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CHPA) to repossess core houses from persons.

At a recent press conference, Nandlall alleged that the Government was making steps to reclaim the houses from persons that were of a certain ethnicity and called the names of some of the individuals affected.

However Scott in a statement on Friday, December 18, 2015 noted that the only thing the CHPA was doing was repossessing properties from persons who had breached the contract.

“CHPA has noted recently evidence of persons who presented information to allow them to participate in (a) IDG/GOG programme, subletting and in one instance attempting to sell the house,” said Scott.

He noted that the Housing authority was able to stop the sale and revert the property to the State.

The statement noted that the CHPA is mandated to make the houses in question available to low income families and those in dire need of housing for themselves and family.

“In each case, when letters were sent out seeking to repossess these houses, the persons who were allocated the houses, breached the agreement which they signed and violated the principles of fairness and equity,” said Scott.

The Minister stated that the former AG has “no interest in justice or decency but seem determined to create a new group of exploiters, reminiscent of the old imperial type regime of which he was a part.”

  1. The APNU cronies are like the Angolan cronies no difference whatsoever–the people do not have food to eat and the dictators spending like crazy on themselves.Before we know it this country will be worst than Angola–( who ha a genius for a leader).

  2. You obviously formed your conclusion without reading. Properties were repossessed from people who were, contrary to the terms of their contract, subletting and attempting to sell their properties. Not because they delayed occupancy.
    Look at the facts, don’t just jump blindly to conclusions!

  3. What’s the problem with folks understanding here….it states the places were reposed because of breach of contract. The thing to would be to ask for details of the breaches…..Shuups
