Regardless of political affiliation, persons should be open to dialogue

Regardless of political affiliation, persons should be open to dialogue

first_imgDear Editor,The rise in tribalism in Guyana is breaking my heart. Racism isn’t an accurate word to denote this epidemic spreading, both the Government and Opposition are multi-ethnic; one more than the other. Therefore, the word tribalism much more accurately denotes the circumstances I wish to speak about.A few days ago, I decided to invite my entire Facebook friends list to like the People’s Progressive Party Civic page. I have previously invited my entire list to like the University I attended, the student Government page, the department I worked for and more recently, Raiza the psychologist’s page. Never before have I received any sort of negative responses; if people didn’t want to like the page they could’ve simply chosen not to.One of the most interesting reaction was a classmate of mine (from The Bishops’ High School) who screenshot the notification to like the page and had a full ranting session about how; “didn’t realise she was so brave to try and recruit real South Ruimveldt thugs.” I was unaware I went to school with any thugs.I responded by explaining that I was only inviting people so that they can have more sides to the story. It is my belief that you should look at what all political parties post as the media can sometimes be biased. Information never hurts anyone. The sad part was my “friend” didn’t try to converse but got defensive and almost hateful in his commentary.I went on a PPP/C walkabout in Stabroek Market and while people were still tribal saying “I is APNU”, and “Only green for me” and sometimes a little more explicated than that. Many were curious for information; starting the dialogue was the hardest part but once we got to talking, people were willing to listen and exchange views and things became a lot more pleasant.We as a nation, regardless of our political affiliation should be open to dialogue at all levels. By refusing to start a dialogue, we as a people will have a hard time moving forward. It is not only about speaking but also listening and understanding. We need to listen to each other and open up conversations at all levels.How can you not be bothered by the current Administration, promising the Guyanese people so many things in 2015 and never delivering on them? As a population, you should question and listen to what the “other side” can offer. We need to listen to each other not just flat out “cuss up” and ignore the “other side.” Find some time to listen to the other side, the information you may receive may be bias. We need to start listening and conversing, and then we can get to create a better discourse which will lead to electing administrations based on issues and policy and not the colour of their shirt.Yours truly,Nalinie Singhlast_img read more

Father of 3 brutally beaten by brothers in Onderneeming

Father of 3 brutally beaten by brothers in Onderneeming

first_imgPolice in the “G” Division are now investigating the circumstances which led to a single father of three children being attacked and brutally beaten by two brothers in Onderneeming, Essequibo Coast on Saturday last.The victim following the beatingThe victim has been identified as Trevor Chappelle of Red Village, Onderneeming, Essequibo Coast.According to the victim’s sister, Chappelle and a friend were walking to the shop when they were approached by the two known “trouble makers” from Onderneeming.The perpetrators reportedly asked Chappelle for money to buy something to drink, but he replied, “I don’t have any”.The men then allegedly carried out the daring attack on Chappelle by beating him with a piece of wood. Upon hearing the commotion, residents went to the man’s rescue, but by then the two perpetrators had already escaped.Chappelle was picked up and rushed to the Suddie Hospital, where he was treated for injuries to his right side head, knee, back and throat. The matter was reported to the Police.However, Shelly Chappelle told the Guyana Times that she is dissatisfied with the investigation, since the two men, whose whereabouts are known to villagers, have not yet been arrested.According to the angry woman, her brother is currently unable to work since he is in pain from the injuries he sustained.“He does work hard as a farm hand to look after his three children by himself, and now he in pain, he can’t work…everybody who saw what happen (is) willing to come forward and to talk to the Police, but the Police ain’t doing their jobs fast enough, because them two boys deh all over the place…my brother is not the first them did this to, is a lot of people frighten them” the woman complained.As such, she is calling out for justice for her brother, whom she describes as humble and pleasant.last_img read more

Choupo-Moting goal-line howler as PSG miss French title

Choupo-Moting goal-line howler as PSG miss French title

first_img0Shares0000Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting gave PSG the lead against Strasbourg but later produced a stunning miss as his side fell short of clinching the Ligue 1 title © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULATPARIS, France, Apr 8 – Paris Saint-Germain squandered the chance to clinch the Ligue 1 title in record-equalling time on Sunday after a 2-2 draw at home to Strasbourg, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s incredible miss from on the goal-line costing his team dear.PSG were handed the opportunity to win their sixth French crown in seven seasons after second-placed Lille drew 1-1 at Reims earlier. That left Thomas Tuchel’s side knowing that three points at the Parc des Princes would see them retain the title and wrap it up with eight games to spare, matching the speed with which Laurent Blanc’s team became champions in 2016.Choupo-Moting gave them an early lead with his third Ligue 1 goal, but later in the first half he somehow succeeded in turning a net-bound Christopher Nkunku shot onto the post while standing on the line.“I wondered if I was offside and it all happened very fast. I touched the ball, it hit the post and, well, it’s a real shame because the ball was going in,” Choupo-Moting told Canal+.“Sorry about that.”Fresh from winning the League Cup last weekend, Strasbourg had equalised prior to Choupo-Moting’s howler when Nuno Da Costa turned in a Lionel Carole cross, and they found themselves 2-1 up in the 38th minute when Anthony Goncalves lashed home from 22 yards.Kylian Mbappe came off the bench on the hour mark but it was another PSG substitute who made it 2-2 with eight minutes remaining. Julian Draxler sent in a corner from the right and Germany defender Thilo Kehrer headed home.However, having drawn at home to PSG back in December, mid-table Strasbourg then held on for a point.Cameroon international Choupo-Moting started with Mbappe rested and Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani all unfit — the latter watched from the stands sporting a beret.– ‘Murphy’s law’ –“He is an excellent back-up player to have but if you start a lot for PSG you need to have confidence and he lacks that,” said Tuchel of Choupo-Moting.“He was very unfortunate because he started very well and then he stopped that ball on the line which would have made it 2-1 for us.It was a frustrating night for Dani Alves and PSG © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULAT“I don’t know why he did that. In English you say it’s Murphy’s law.”Still a huge 20 points clear at the summit and with a game in hand, PSG will now hope to secure the eighth league title in their history when they go to Lille next weekend.A point will be enough in that game, but PSG should have finished the job here — Choupo-Moting’s miss was one of the worst you are ever likely to see, while Dani Alves hit the bar after the break.Earlier, Jose Fonte’s 56th-minute header had Lille on course to take all three points away to Reims, but substitute Remi Oudin’s 78th-minute leveller — initially ruled out for offside but then given after a VAR review — denied the visitors.Lille are more concerned with holding off the teams below them as they look to secure second place, which provides automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League group stage.The draw at the Stade Auguste-Delaune moved them five points clear of third-placed Lyon, who slumped to a shock 3-1 loss at home to relegation-threatened Dijon on Saturday.“If we had won I think we would have sealed our place on the podium,” said Lille coach Christophe Galtier.“We are 11 points ahead of Saint-Etienne but there are still 21 points to play for.”Fourth-placed Saint-Etienne drew 2-2 at Amiens on Saturday, while Marseille, in fifth, were beaten 2-0 at Bordeaux on Friday.Reims are just a point behind OM in sixth and are level on points with Patrick Vieira’s Nice, who beat Montpellier 1-0.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Gates moving to improve oversight of security firms

Gates moving to improve oversight of security firms

first_imgThe group also reviewed how contractors working for the State Department operate there. Gates dispatched the fact-finding team to Baghdad early last week, expressing concerns about whether the military has exercised sufficient oversight of the contractors. A top military officer has said he’s seen private security guards overreact, but stressed that they fill a critical need. Gates was meeting Tuesday with military and national leaders in El Salvador, the first stop in a five-day, five-country swing through Central and South America. The new review comes after a Sept. 16 incident when Blackwater USA guards killed at least 11 Iraqi civilians. It set off a wave of investigations, from the Pentagon and State Department to Congress, into the conduct and oversight of the security companies that routinely protect U.S. diplomats and others. Blackwater is the largest of the State Department’s three contractors. U.S. military commanders have the authority to discipline the guards, and to ensure they are following proper rules of conduct in their use of force. Key topics during Gates’ trip to South and Central America include regional security, counternarcotics strategies and discussions about an alternate location for a key air base in South America. He also is expected to discuss the need for additional peacekeeping forces in the Middle East, particularly in Afghanistan.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday that he expects to move on recommendations to strengthen the Defense Department’s oversight of private security firms in Iraq. Speaking during a news conference here with Salvadoran leaders, Gates said he has reviewed a preliminary report from the five-person fact-finding team he sent to Baghdad last week to investigate problems involving the security contractors. “The recommendations from the group look very reasonable to me,” said Gates, who declined to outline the contents of the report. “I anticipate that we will move forward to try to implement them.” He said the “report made a number of recommendations on how we can strengthen our oversight of contractors working for the Department of Defense.” last_img read more

Khayelitsha to be upgraded after fire

Khayelitsha to be upgraded after fire

first_img3 January 2013 Khayelitsha’s BM section, ravaged by fire on New Year’s day, will be upgraded, the City of Cape Town said on Wednesday.“Any suggestions that the City has not been active in the community to ensure that it is upgraded in a caring and dignified manner are completely untrue,” human settlements mayoral committee member Ernest Sonnenberg said.Three men were killed, one was seriously injured and more than 3 000 people were displaced in Tuesday’s fire. Approximately 800 shacks were destroyed.Sonnenberg said it was alleged the fire was caused by drunk people who had become negligent. He said discussions and plans about upgrading the area had been in the works for “a long period of time”.Ultimately, local government wanted to ensure that residents received tenure and necessary services.“The city has been negotiating with the various landowners concerned to purchase land.”At the moment, the city’s informal settlements department was working to improve safety measures against fire and floods, and provide access to electricity for all residents.Sonnenberg said the biggest problem in upgrading the area was its high density. Although local officials had tried to meet with residents to explore possible relocations, this had been met with resistance. Sonnenberg said this had delayed the planned upgrade.He urged residents rebuilding their structures to position them at least three metres apart.“Unfortunately this is not always adhered to, making it very difficult for firefighting vehicles to gain access when attempting to extinguish a fire.”On Wednesday, efforts were under way to help residents affected by the fire. The public was invited to make donations such as food, wood, paraffin, blankets, and money. Sapalast_img read more
