THE Rohee-Ramnarine saga took an interesting turn, and continued to be a topic of great interest after the Guyana Police Force stated that, contrary to Rohee’s claims, there are no outstanding disciplinary matters against Ramnarine.
Oops, which Police Force were you in charge of during your time as Minister, Rohee? It looks like the PPP/C just wants to deter others from getting the recognition they deserve. After all, if they aren’t in the spotlight, then no one should be in their books.
Thanks to a subsidy agreement between the Government and the Berbice Bridge Company, those who ply the Berbice Bridge will, for the New Year, enjoy a reduced toll of $1900, instead of $2200. There were lots of talk about this, with most persons calling the reduction anti-climactic. After all- $300 is not much of a drop, is it?
Yet, some are hopeful that this will still be enough to effect a respective reduction in fares. But who are we kidding, folks? Have we ever really seen bus and taxi fares drop? There is no gravity when it comes to such things; so, unfortunately, fares that go up never come down.
The Guyana Times came under mass criticism after publishing what the Ministry of the Presidency has called a “ deliberately misleading headline” in which they claim President Granger said there was “No evidence of corruption against PPP/C”. What the President said, however, was that once there is evidence to bring in the guilty persons being pointed out, then (and only then) will those persons be taken to court. The Guyana Times instead took this to mean that, because there has not yet been any evidence, no one is guilty. Many persons had a good laugh, calling the pro-PPP publication the Beacon of Lies, instead of what it claims to truly stand for.
However, I’d go a little easy on them. After all, a drowning man would clutch at a straw, right? It’s not our fault that, at this point, the opposition is looking for any smidgeon of silver to line their cloud. I call it wishful thinking via convenient misinterpretation. Carry on.
