    Meenakshi Narine, the wife of Georgetown Mayor, Ubraj Narine, has taken to social media to condemn alleged fake news reports by a questionable online publication “Live in Guyana” about her family. Her message, posted on her Facebook Page yesterday, 27th of December, reads:

    My family and I were enjoying the Season only to be distressed by the news that we have become targets of propaganda. I would like to state that the article posted by Live in Guyana is totally false and is a deliberate attempt at targeting my family. I hope a good conscience would allow the persons who posted those false statements to remove it.

    Her statement follows two questionable reports about the Georgetown Mayor, Ubraj Narine, by the publication, “Live in Guyana.” The said source published an article yesterday, 27th of December, that the Mayor has been placed on station bail and his firearm lodged after he discharged three rounds during an altercation between himself, his wife, and his father-in-law. Action News Guyana also carried a similar story alleging that the mayor was involved in a domestic altercation during which he discharged several rounds.

    The Mayor, along with his wife, however, has denied all this.

    Statement from His Worship Pt Ubraj Narine, Mayor of the City of Georgetown

    It has been brought to my attention that the online propaganda site Live in Guyana has made me their recent target of lies and misinformation. It would seem that this political press piece is unable to observe the sanctity of the Christmas seasons but prefers to continue its brand of gutter politics.

    In my Christmas message as I have continued to call through the year for all stakeholders to work together for the betterment of all Guyanese. There is no place for this type of dirty politics. I refute and reject the slanderous statements made in the social media post and call for its immediate retraction.
