What change? Govt’s attack, revenge on core Opposition supporters

first_imgDear Editor,After reflecting on the past several years, it is very disappointing to see how old wounds have kept progress from the people of Guyana especially when it comes to understanding and respecting each other’s ethnicity and race. Many will agree, but few will admit it publicly. The current Government came into office with an opportunity to provide this change and progress for the entire country. Instead, political dominance and self-preservation led to a clearly racist motivation for the gutting of the Government’s minor partner’s political base, while they also seized the opportunity to attack and take revenge on the core supporters of the Opposition.Were it not the case, this political season would be much easier for the current Government. Their support base would have grown in non-traditional areas due to joint economic growth and progress towards national development. However, they stole progress from themselves and although they are now facing a substantial opportunity to obtain further growth via new resource development, it is clear that theirs is an inherent resentment towards those who are helping them.Far be it for me to say that the remembrance of slavery should be neglected, but the use of its memory to hinder progress towards growing as an individual or as an institution, or as a nation does not help anyone involved. In recent days, many of those who are respected in the Government have been recalling memories of slavery and comparing current economic and social decisions via this backdrop. It would be beneficial to also remember that those who you have resentment towards have helped you regain power and are providing you with the technology to grow your economy. This is not out of an obligation which they have to fulfil for the past. It is the result of taking advantage of a win-win opportunity for all of those involved. The question that should be asked by those who allow bitterness to skew or bias their judgment is, “What would they do if those helping them left them to their own wits?”.Hate for a people who were not your enemies and that came here for work to take care of their families is wrong at its core. No one came to take from you what was yours. Those in charge made the decision of whom they wanted to work with. Now you work with the descendants of masters of your forefathers to obtain future wealth, will you now curse them for helping you do what you yourselves can not? The same thought should be extended to more than half of this nation with whom you are aggressively attacking because of historical differences and bitter resentment.The choice is there to be had, will we be a nation of one people or a nation where to each his own will always be the order of the day? Letting go of the past is not the same as forgetting it and most people let go when there is something better, not bitter, to be had. Look before you and you will see that is exactly what is to be had in coming years. Let the nation progress as one, leave behind the bitter resentment that continues to hinder our beautiful nation’s progress.Best regards,J Changleelast_img read more


first_imgA man believed to be in his late 40s, identified as Opa Karwee, attempted suicide by imbibing acid water in Harrisville Ward, St. John River City, District #2A, Grand Bassa County, and is said to be dying slowly.Explaining his ordeal to the Daily Observer in tears and frustration last week, victim Karwee disclosed that he is a former tapper of the Liberian Agricultural Company (LAC) in Wee statutory District #3, Grand Bassa County.Victim Darwee narrated that he mysteriously left the job after his mother, Mary Frazier, “blew juju dust”, which caused him to leave his job and come to her in Hoegbahn Township in #2 District.Victim Darwee explained that after he came to his mother he began to suffer since now he could not find a job. When the money he had had finished, his mother began to make mockery of him, saying, “You for nothing child, why have you come here to be a liability on me?  Why you lied and boasted of the wealth you have in LAC? You will see your body!” he quoted his mother.He revealed that thereafter he and his mother engaged each other in unceasing palava until she left for Monrovia.  But,   according to him, his mother left her demonic spirit behind her to torment him at day and night.He mentioned that prior to her departure for Monrovia; he accused his mother of being a witch that has claimed lives of numerous people in the family, including his older brother Sakuo Karwee and others.“After this my ma told me and my wife to leave her village and go anywhere we want to live.”He reiterated that the week after his mother left the village, he secretly took acid water unbeknown to himself.  He later claimed that he was under demonic influence when he took a drink of it, but did not swallow all.  Only a drop entered his throat and he fell to the ground unconscious and was rescued by the community people.“Predicated upon my deplorable condition, my wife and other residents of the village rushed me to a nearby physician named Joseph Jackson, Jr. who charged me $2800LD but because the money was not available he rejected me,” Karwee said in a low voice.He noted that he is currently being treated by a prayer warrior named Naomi Tarr, the wife of a teacher, Alex Jacob Tarr, in the same vicinity.Karwee further explained that prior to the fuss between him and his mother, he dreamed that a group of unknown persons chased him to kill him, but he fortunately escaped and later awoke from his sleep.The attempted Suicide victim is therefore appealing to the national government, humanitarian and health related organizations as well as people of goodwill to help facilitate his survival.He can be contacted through our grand Bassa county reporter through cell # 0777-789-661.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cal State faces tall task

first_imgIf the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team is to claim its third West Region title in the last 10 years, it will have to do what no team has been able to do this season – beat Humboldt State on its home floor. The two will square off at 7 tonight at Humboldt’s cramped and raucous East Gym. The winner advances to the Elite Eight to be held in Springfield, Mass. from March 21-24. “We’re going to have to play our most consistent game of the season on both ends of the floor,” Coyotes coach Jeff Oliver said. “We’re going to have to stick to our game and make good decisions offensively so we don’t give up anything easy.” Humboldt (26-3) is ranked fourth nationally and has won 18 straight games while the Coyotes (24-5) are eighth, having won 10 in a row. This will be the rubber match between the two. Cal State won at Coussoulis Arena 68-61 in Decemberwhile the Lumberjacks took an 89-78 home victory in February , shooting 75 percent (15-for-20) in the second half. They are 16-0 at home this season. “There is a reason they haven’t lost here,” Oliver said. “They don’t have a sixth man. Their crowd is their sixth, seventh and eighth man.” Both teams survived in their openers but played better in Saturday’s semifinals. The second-seeded Coyotes beat No. 7 Brigham Young-Hawaii 71-68 and No. 6 Seattle University 72-66. Senior guard Prentice Harris scored 18 points in one game and 22 in the other. Against the Seasiders he had a 3-pointer that gave the Coyotes lead for good in the final minute, than sank a pair of free throws to put the game away. center_img Against the Redhawks Saturday, he had a steal and went in for a layup with 52 seconds to go that gave the Coyotes a four-point lead. “He (Harris) is playing phenomenal on both ends of the floor,” Oliver said. “Out guys have done a good job of getting him the ball and some open looks.” Senior center Ivan Johnson totaled 34 points in the two games. Humboldt beat No. 8 Alaska-Anchorage 68-61 and No. 5 Grand Canyon 95-81. Devin Peal has had 40 points in two games. Jeremiah Ward, a Miller graduate, has managed 31. Sunday was an off day or both teams, although each practiced and watched film. There wasn’t much else to do in the remotely located town not far from the Oregon border. “Well, it was daylight savings time so it was one less hour we had to waste,” Oliver said. Oliver said senior forward Yoseph Yaisrael has been slowed by a sore hamstring but should play tonight. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
