PPP/C MP Mohabir Anil Nandlall

I wish to respond to a statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister, bearing the caption: “OPM refutes Nandlall’s lies – calls on sugar workers not to fall prey to attempts to incite.

This statement is in response to last week’s ‘The Unruly Horse’. The thrust of the statement was to paint my article as a litany of lies. It is the classic artwork of the Prime Minister.

Indeed, I can produce, for public objective verification, a source for every argumentation adumbrated in that article. Continue reading OP ED: Nagamania

David Granger fired the first salvo in pursuit of his historical mission to misinterpret and revise Guyana’s contemporary political history.

In the course of a lecture delivered at the Parliament Building on July 6, 2012, he declared; “There is no Father of the Nation, Independence cannot be attributed to a single person or to a single party.”

With this single sentence Granger dismissed out of hand any role for both Cheddi Jagan and Forbes Burnham, by the same token, he distanced himself from Burnham, his benefactor, “the Kabaka” and Founder Leader of the Party he now heads.
