A grenade was late Saturday night tossed near the vehicle of Kaieteur News publisher, Glenn Lall, outside the newspaper’s office and printery on Saffon Street, Charlestown.

The device did not explode.

Police were summoned and they cordoned off the street, preventing vehicles and pedestrians from passing.

The incident occurred during the first night of the wake for Kaieteur News Assistant Editor, Dale Andrews who passed away earlier Saturday.

A section of Saffon Street cordoned off by police following the discovery of a grenade next to a vehicle owned by Kaieteur News publisher, Glenn Lall.

Staffers said they heard a thud and moments after they checked, they saw the grenade near the right front wheel of Lall’s vehicle.

In the past, Kaieteur News’ Saffon Street had been burnt and  several staffers, including press operators, were shot dead at the printery several years ago when it was located at Eccles, East Bank Demerara.

    ‘Grenade found near Kaieteur News publisher’s vehicle’
    Who in Guyana owns or have access to Grenade?

    Who is going to question him?

    KN continues to be targeted because it continues to be a medium through which many are able to speak and it also addresses issues to which many relate.

    Example: I read today where a letter writer (in KN) suggests we forget the Harmon issue. This is not merely about Harmon; this is about US$5M in public funds that cannot be publicly accounted for two months after Harmon went to China to find out why Guyana has not been paid the money.

    Minister Trotman later said Harmon, on return from China, found documents showing the money was actually paid. Two months after his return, Harmon refuses to share copies of the documents with the media. We cannot let this issue die or else it could mark the beginning of a series of missing funds in the Granger-Nagamootoo administration.

      Please enlighten me about the KN who are they political affiliates ? Yes Snr. Harmon and the admin. must address the 5M issue or it would be another left wing party, like Hilary and the issue in USA.On another issue I guess the special prosecutor is in the making to deal with all the alleged crimes in the past, and now the present and future.

      EM: the funds are not missing…the President will have that Chris-ram guy do a puja and his priest will read the books to figure it out…the evidence must be somewhere in Chase Bank..

    Are we going back to the days of ” if you are not with me then you are against me”. Guyanese need to understand that the free press is the upholder of freedom.The press has to call out those who want to violate our freedom and ravage our country.

    It seems to me that the detailed reports on the audits are biting. The terrorists are hoping that the grenade would point attention in the direction of the military, past or present, but who has more to lose by silencing Kaieteur News?

    • Col123

      LB…Seems as if you are praying that the PPP goons are involved in this dastardly act….due to the audits and KN revelations…that appeal to kith and kin politics is damaging to our society. The fact is that this is a dastardly act and the culprits need to be found and pay for it!…period.!

  • KassemB

    So what is your un-dumb suggestions and solutions?

  • KassemB

    ‘the first step would be to inform immigration and to put a temporary ban on travel for everyone.’
    Not certain what will that solve
    From what occurred, it is safe to assume more grenades are already in the country

  • Col123

    Expound a little more on this political matrix…you maybe on to something…

  • Col123

    Peter…since you are so astute, why not say who is holding what evidence on whom over the past fifty years:..hint- copies and
    evidence cancelled checks of $x millions to certain politicians…another hint..you have to go back past those 23 years that you only know about..

    • MEMES Unlimited

      I guess he’s laughing…..all the way to the bank…..with his new manicure and mouthful of Listerine….HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

  • Col123

    We need to determine who did this and the motive ASAP…if not solved quickly, the gyam fyah days are back

  • Col123

    Peter…let us in.. you still have those weaponry from Fineman’s days?..the cops should haul your azz for questioning so you can say how you know that…RKan jumbie will catch up on you..

  • Col123

    Still struggling to get out of one of those bags ?…eh!
