I would like to urge all Guyanese to take a closer look at the people they are paying via their taxes, the ones whom they call their leaders. Fifty five years old and Guyana does not have a national role model.
If our children are raised in this culture, what do you expect in 2 generations’ time? To being with, Mr. Hamilton shouted his presentation across the room, and MPs from the A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) shouted back, “Yuh getting hoarse, fadda, sit down!”
One of the louder Opposition MPs, Sherod Duncan, began hurling insults at Hamilton, and rather than proceeding with his presentation, the Minister shouted back. Third in the lineup of speakers was coalition MP, Geeta Chandan-Edmond. At the beginning of her speech, the Attorney-at-Law wished belated birthday greetings to Attorney General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall. But she did not stop there, as the MP took a jab at the childless AG by saying, “I am a proud mother of two children. All the credit goes to my husband.”
“I’m a proud mother of two children; all credit goes to my husband.”such pornographic language should have its time and place outside of Guyana’s parliament.
There were even homophobic insults hurled from one MP to another. In the first case, it was Opposition Leader, Joseph Harmon, who shouted to Minister Kwame McCoy, “I have a lil boy for you!”
Shortly after, MP Catherine Hughes, who had her ear phones plugged in for most of the beginning of the debates, shouted to Minister McCoy, “Rainbow! Rainbow! Rainbow!” This is a known reference to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) flag.
It did not stop there. During proceedings, it was indicated that the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Governance, Gail Teixeira, had recently lost her father. At one point, when Minister Teixeira was about to make an interjection, Mahipaul turned and shouted to her, “Why you don’t sit down and mourn yuh father!”
Later in the afternoon, it was Government MP, Dr. Vishwa Mahadeo’s turn to present. He indicated to the assembly that in 2017, the Rehabilitation Department under the former administration requested an apparatus named a “medical chest vibrator.” This, the MP said, would assist those patients who were experiencing lung and post-stroke complications.
“But the Minister bought this, Mr. Speaker,” Dr. Mahadeo said, as he displayed to the assembly a vibrating dildo (a sex toy). It is unclear, however, how and where the former coalition government sourced this device, since the Laws of Guyana prohibit the importation of sex toys.
Where do you see the human capital of this country in 20 years time?
