Guyanese Citizen Describes Harrowing Experience of Being Robbed at Gunpoint in Georgetown (Redirected)

A prominent Guyanese citizen, Mr. Frank Satnarine, described a harrowing experience of being robbed at gunpoint in the capital city of Georgetown on the evening of Saturday, 23rd of July, 2022 at around 10:30 PM. These types of gunpoint robberies, perpetuated by youths on bicycles, are unfortunately not uncommon in Guyana, but are poorly reported upon, and even more poorly addressed by the Guyana Police Force. Guyanese, and foreigners visiting Guyana, are left at the mercy of these robbers who carry out their attacks as though it were a full time job both in the day and night.

100% Financing, 3.8% Interest Rate, and Free Building Materials for New Home Projects

President of Guyana, Dr. Irfaan Ali, said he wants everyone to come on board. The president says the aim is to improve the lives and comfort of Guyanese, increase the net worth and wealth of every Guyanese, and make Guyana a more beautiful place.

Government Subsidizes Construction of New Homes

There’s never been a better time to start building your new home. The government of Guyana is giving Guyanese added incentive to start building a new house with massive subsidies on construction material. His Excellency, Dr. Irfaan Ali, announced today, 22nd of July, 2022, that his government will support new home projects by providing free steel and some of the cement needed for the job.

Guyanese Were Sold a Pipe Dream

Prior to the 2020 elections in Guyana, Guyanese were sold a pipe dream. They were promised a life of rapid economic transformation and luxury that got them overly excited. But more than two years after oil starting flowing out of Guyana, and after over 700,000 million US dollars in oil revenue, little, if anything, has changed for the better for the general Guyanese population.

Residents Line Up to Purchase Sugar in World’s Fastest Growing Oil Economy

Reminiscent of the dark days of the Burnham dictatorship era, the streets of Guyana are once again seeing Guyanese lining up for foodstuff – this time, only sugar – but it’s still defined as “food shortage.” It is not clear what exactly is causing the shortage of sugar as the CEO of GUYSUCO boasts that GUYSUCO is exceeding its sugar production projects, but sugar shortage has become an all too real thing in Guyana.

Residents of Wakenaam Threatened by Snakes

Residents of Wakenaam Island on the Essequibo River, Region 3, have reached out to this publication to highlight a disturbing issue and call on the relevant authorizes to relieve their distress by addressing the matter at hand. According to the residents, there is a drain at Good Success, Wakenaam, which hasn’t been cleaned for 19 years, and as a result, snakes are breeding inside, putting the nearby houses in danger.

Lethem Cricket Ground Outfitted with Pavilion and Sanitary Block

In March this year, we wrote about the historic launching of the Lethem Cricket Club which was spearheaded by Mr. Kenrick McDonald. Since then, top ranking officials, public figures, and authorities in the Region have given the project their full support. The Lethem Cricket Club is now in full swing, and very soon, football will no longer be the only sport practiced in the Rupununi Savannahs.

Have you been thinking of traveling to the beautiful Central American country of Belize, but you didn’t want to take the dreaded Covid-19 vaccine? Well, now nothing is standing in your way. Belize has joined the growing list of smart and intelligent countries which have removed all Covid-19 travel restrictions for travelers to the destination.

Letter: Why Are We Importing Sugar from Belize?

The government of Guyana and various top ranking officials, including the CEO of GUYSUCO, Mr. Sasenarine Singh, are trying to convince the masses of Guyanese that there’s no shortage of sugar in Guyana. If that be the truth, then why resort to importing sugar from Belize? This is a bag of sugar that I bought today, 19th July 2022, expecting GUYSUCO 50kg brown sugar, but instead I got PRODUCT OF BELIZE.
