[] – Former Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee is not at all satisfied with the current crime fighting methods being employed by his successor and is advocating for more robust planning from Vice President, Khemraj Ramjattan.

Rohee at a press conference on Monday, July 13 decried the current strategies being employed by Ramjattan, who has responsibility for Public Security.

He said that the Vice President has failed to produce a progressive and comprehensive citizen security plan like the PPP/C did and that Ramjattan should draft one, consult with the relevant stakeholders, including the National Commission for Law and Order, take it to cabinet for consideration, and if approved, have it published after sending it to law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders for implementation.

“Instead of presenting a draft strategy to [President David] Granger, his boss, Granger presents one to Ramjattan and instructs him like the dutiful servant to go refine and implement it,” the former Government Minister stated.

Rohee is claiming that all five components of President Granger’s security strategy “is replete with the same elements the PPP/C was implementing through the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Minister who they so badly wanted to see leave.”            

“Now that Ramjattan is where Rohee was some time ago he must face what Rohee faced especially in view of the fact that unlike Rohee who had a fully GOG- funded public safety and security plan and an IDB funded Citizen’s Security Programme. Ramjattan has neither of the two except plenty talk and empty promises emanating from a clinically truncated and degutted Ministry of Home Affairs hugged by a 3sum and now a mere shadow of what it was less two months ago. Granger and Harmon have effectively given Ramjattan a basket to fetch water,” Rohee stated.




  1. Ramjattan in his Ministerial position,is far more competent than you Rohee,when you were Minister of Home Affairs,in the PPP government.That was why you were called upon to resign,by the former Opposition,because of your incompetence.The MOST you can do is BRAY.

  2. What is Mr. Roger saying he was Home Affairs Minister for some time what has he done? He should be ashamed to opine any thing that has to do with crime. He and the PPP/C Government did absolutely nothing but corrupt our country

  3. Every word from the PPP seems to b so racial. Why does it have to be Granger and Harmon two afro guyanese that give Ramjattan that post when 90 percent of guyanese agree for him to hold that post give him a chance PPP stop trying to make guyana corrupt. The man is going to do his job it’s only a few months. U guys messed up Guyana big time

  4. If Rohee is the best spokesperson for the PPP/C then it is a clear indication there is a dearth of thoughtful intellectuals amongst the lot. This dunce, is critical of the efforts being made by a two month old administration to cut the crime spree in Guyana, when he did nothing for 23 years.

  5. Rohee really is as stupid and dumb as he looks… He did nothing to reduce crime when in office and has the gall to critisize those who attempt to stem the tide…. Rohee sit your tail down and shut up as the force ripe party doing a lot better than you could ever do

  6. Is it possible for this guy to shut his fool mouth. Is he the best the PPP could do to represent their views. Does he ever stop to think that the very things he is so freely criticizing he had an opportunity to do something about and did not? What an embarrassment!!!
