OPINION: His Excellency, President Irfaan Ali wanted evidence of racial discrimination -I present it

by GHK Lall The news came via technology, and it was startling.  Two senior employees of the Guyana Gold Board were terminated.  Given the two officers dismissed, and my own familiarity with both, I wonder what could have been the problem with them that was so grave as to merit dismissal.  More importantly, I will now tender something that Guyana’s ...

OPINION: With political groups and leaders like these, we are dead

by GHK Lall  A scan of SN’s May 19th frontpage turned up two gems.  They confirm how lost our main political groups are, and how distant from reality are the leaders of those groups; their credibility, never above average to begin with, takes yet another dive to the bottom.   Instead of being about a ‘can-do’ attitude’ that powers the ...

OPINION: Electoral reform starts here, must be driven by us -get CARICOM

by GHK Lall I refer to the article titled, “GHRA says call off IRI electoral reform project, bring in CARICOM instead” (Demerara Waves May 13 https://demerarawaves.com/2021/05/13/ghra-says-call-off-iri-electoral-reform-project-bring-in-caricom-instead/).  I fully agree, and here is why. First, Guyanese electoral reform will not occur without political compromise, as the GHRA noted.  Notwithstanding that, I still believe that both major political groups will search diligently ...

By Paul Sanders, New York, May 2021 Mentally lazy. The new, powerful political buzz phrase. Real catchy thing. A nice lyrical ring to it too. Very condescending. Who cares?

OPINION: Daring to be about Guyana, calling things as they are

by GHK Lall Say or write something that holds a trace of disagreement about where things truly are in this society, something that is about the bigger picture, the national welfare and good, nowadays, and there are those furious automatic brandings: anti-PPP and anti-government; and from the other side, anti-PNC+AFC and anti-opposition.  Since I can only be, strive to be, ...

OPINION: Step down, Mr. Patterson or Mr. Granger please step in

by GHK Lall , 21st January. 2021 I am following closely the developments involving former Minister of Public Infrastructure, Mr. David Patterson, over that specific gift of jewelry.  The more I read and absorb, the more I am sickened and incensed.  I am also deeply embarrassed, given my previous identification with the coalition group.  The way that he responded to ...

OPINION: Donald Trump: What have you got left?

By Paul Sanders, New York, January 2021 For one last time. Imagine Donald Trump. President Donald J. Trump. Mofo. Imagine. He stands often at the South Lawn. The reporters shout questions at him. It’s a ritual; it’s always the same. The questions change and the answers mostly don’t. Don’t call this a conversation. But it unfolds roughly along those lines. ...

OPINION: Why is the government still green-lighting football at the National Stadium? 

2021 came with a lot of renewed hopes for sports and sporting men and women; lots of federations, associations, clubs and organizations have begun training and a have hosted a few events subject to the approval from the government. One such body which had the privilege to host an event was the Kashif and Shanghai organization with their ‘bounce back’ ...
