first_imgIndigenous students at the Mahaicony dormitory in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) can now focus on their upcoming examinations, as the problems associated with the lack of adequate food has been alleviated. Guyana Times was informed that on Monday, food supplies such as chicken, eggs, sausages and vegetables were transported to the facility which houses 20 students; all from the Indigenous community of Moraikabi, located some 10km up the Mahaicony River.The publication understands that “officials” promised that these supplies will be delivered on a weekly basis. This publication was further informed that these officials are expected to visit the facility some time soon.The students who are currently residing at the facility range in age from 12-16 and currently attend Mahaicony, Hope, Belladrum, Novar and Bygeval Secondary Schools. Four of the 20 are in preparations for their CXC examinations.Two weeks ago, 25 pounds of fish, one bag of potatoes and a quantity of sausages were supplied to the dormitory. On Saturday night, all that remained however was some of the potatoes, which was insufficient to feed the 22 residents, inclusive of the two guardians.Guyana Times had reported on Sunday that even though the current batch of students moved into the facilities in October, there were deteriorating conditions at the premises which needed to be addressed. It was revealed that one side of the compound’s fence was damaged and repairs were also needed to the piping system.Information reaching this newspaper indicated that officials from the region and the Education Ministry visited the facility over three weeks ago and promised that the many concerns raised would be addressed.last_img read more

Angry ‘Margibi Players’ Halt Traffic in Kakata for 3 Hours

first_imgNational U19 team visited Kakata for a series of games— Players demand promises made to them during the county meetThe 2018-19 Annual County was touted to be the best ever since the tournament began in 1956 with the involvement of Orange Liberia, but the failure by the Bomi County Sports Association to live up to the promises made to their players and resulted into an event that took place on Wednesday, March 4, left much to be desired.A group of young men and women claiming to be playing members of the Margibi County soccer and kickball teams blocked Monrovia-Kakata Highway, near the small bridge at the Booker Washington Institute, according to Mr. Mason Saweler, insisting that every vehicle should pay LD1,000.Mr. Saweler is the president of the Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA), who led the national U-19 female team to play a series of games against teams from Bong, Margibi, and Montserrado counties as a consolation for the team’s inability to have gone by road to Niger for the IHF Zone 3 Handball Tournament.Saweler told the Daily Observer in a telephone interview yesterday that the young people were adamant on their demands, claiming that Margibi County Sports Association owed them U$250 each.“They could not see reason as vehicles piled up against each other on Kakata Highway,” Saweler said.He noted that as the situation deepened, police officers who were called to the scene could not be of no help. “It was a sad scene as police officers who came on the scene just turned out to watch the scene as if it was a movie,” he said.Saweler added that he did not hear any report of injuries during the commotion but the young people refused even when they were informed that a funeral procession was on its way towards Gbarnga.“I was afraid for the team I took to Kakata and their counterparts,” Saweler said. “It was a dangerous situation.”Saweler noted that in the end, a collection of LD1,000 each from the many vehicles stranded was made and at least close to LD6,000 was handed over to the leader of the group.He said when they suggested to the group to contact the county superintendent’s office with their grievance, a spokesman said that they tried but no one listened to their plea, and therefore they chose to take the law into their hands.Saweler said the situation lasted for at least three hours and he and his group were able to leave Kakata for Monrovia at 2:00 PM.There has been no official response to the youth’s action and Saweler said the dangerous part of the event was that even police officers were not prepared enough to bring the situation under control.“It was a sad story as police officers just stood there as the young people held everyone hostage,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Granger’s criteria considered an “imposition on the Constitution” – PPP

first_imgGECOM’s chairmanship… as civil society finds difficulty in identifying candidatesCivil society is finding much difficulty in identifying candidates to President David Granger’s likings since his criteria disqualifies any form of activists and makes demands outside of the constitutional requirement relative to the appointment of a new Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).Questions are also being raised about the legality of the criteria outlined by the President.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and members of the PPP engage members of the religious community during consultations on TuesdayOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on March 16 received a letter from the President advising on his opinion with regard to the qualities that the candidates should possess.The search for a new Chairman has been a rollercoaster ride given the different interpretations between the Leader of the Opposition and the President on the relevant section of the Constitution of Guyana which outlines the selection process for a new Chairman of GECOM.President Granger had rejected Jagdeo’s first list of nominees for the post on the basis that the candidates were not “fit and proper”.Following weeks of impasse, Jagdeo finally agreed to return to the drawing board and submit a new list of nominees.Having studied the information provided by the President, the Opposition Leader consulted with civil society bodies which had participated in the first round of consultations in December 2016.Jagdeo, on March 21, met 55 representatives of 33 civil society organisations which included leaders of the Christian, Hindu and Muslim faiths; Private Sector, the Guyana Trades Union Congress and Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana; Amerindian organisations and the National Toshaos Council; the Indian Arrival Committee and the Justice Institute.According to a statement from the Leader of the Opposition’s Office, President Granger’s letter was shared with the representatives but they found it challenging to come up with candidates who would fulfil all of the criteria.“In fact, persons doubted if the President himself could find anyone who fulfilled his own criteria. Some wondered what were the reasons for the President making the range for selection so extraordinarily restrictive,” the statement read.According to the President’s criteria, the candidate should be qualified to be a Judge of the High Court or an Attorney for a minimum of seven years.In the absence of those requirements, the President said any other “fit and proper person” should be deemed to have wide electoral knowledge and capable of handling electoral matters since he/she is qualified to exercise unlimited jurisdiction in civil matters.That person should not be an activist in any form; gender, racial or religious nor should that person have any political affiliation or should not belong to any political party in any form, apparent or hidden.That person must be able to discharge his/her functions neutrally, between the two opposing parties, as he or she would have done in court between two opposing litigants. Here, the President appears to be making it a requirement for the candidate to have practiced in a court.Additionally, the person must be able to discharge the functions without fear or favour; will not allow any person or organisation to influence him or her to compromise his or her neutrality.The President also said that person should have a general character of honesty, integrity, faithfulness and diligence in the discharge of their duty as Chairman of GECOM.According to the statement issued by the Opposition Leader’s Office, the criteria were considered as “an imposition on the Constitution which makes no such demands.”The statement said most disconcerting was the stipulation that the candidate must not be an activist in any form.“(It) was thought to be discriminatory and violated the anti-discrimination articles of the Constitution,” the statement explained.During the consultations, Jagdeo said he had grave reservations on the legality and constitutionality of these criteria outlined by the President.In fact, he expressed his intention to bring these concerns to the attention of the Head of State.Nonetheless, the Opposition Leader said he remains committed to submitting six more names as requested. He urged civil society bodies to respond with recommendations for the post by March 27.last_img read more

Barbaro still in the race for life

first_img“He’s a real genuine athlete; there’s no doubt about it,” Richardson said. “Even the way he woke up from anesthesia – he was very much the athlete waking up from general anesthesia. “Getting the horse up is a big step, but it is not the last step,” Richardson said. “Horses with this type of injury are very susceptible to lots of other problems, including infection at the site.” Horses are often euthanized after serious leg injuries because circulation problems and deadly disease are common if they are unable to distribute weight on all fours.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“I feel much more comfortable now,” trainer Michael Matz said afterward. “I feel at least he has a chance.” Unbeaten and a serious contender for the Triple Crown, Barbaro broke down Saturday only a few hundred yards into the 1 3-16-mile Preakness. The record crowd of 118,402 watched in shock as Barbaro veered sideways with his right leg flaring out grotesquely. Jockey Edgar Prado pulled the powerful colt to a halt, jumped off and awaited medical assistance. Barbaro sustained a broken cannon bone above the ankle, a broken sesamoid bone behind the ankle and a broken long pastern bone below the ankle. The fetlock joint – the ankle – was dislocated. Richardson said the pastern bone was shattered in “20-plus pieces.” The bones were put in place to fuse the joint by inserting a plate and 23 screws to repair damage so severe that most horses would not be able to survive it. When he came out of surgery, Barbaro was lifted by sling and placed on a raft in a pool of water so he could calmly awake from the anesthetic. When he went back to his stall, he was wearing a cast from just below the hock to the hoof. KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. – Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro underwent more than five hours of surgery Sunday to repair three broken bones in his right rear leg and afterward “practically jogged back to the stall,” the colt’s surgeon said. His survival, however, is still 50-50. At this moment “he is extremely comfortable in the leg,” said Dr. Dean Richardson, who stressed before the marathon procedure that he has never worked on so many catastrophic injuries to one horse. Barbaro sustained life- threatening injuries at the Preakness Stakes on Saturday when he broke bones above and below his right rear ankle. His surgery began around 1 p.m. Sunday at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center for Large Animals. Although the operation was successful, Richardson warned that Barbaro was far from home free. He said it was still “a coin toss” whether the strapping 3-year-old colt would survive what had been termed catastrophic injuries. last_img read more
