first_imgTomorrow, Friday 29 May 2015, the UN Peacekeepers day would be commemorated in Liberia and in other parts of the world. The theme for this year is “Past, Present and Future” For nearly 70 years since the United Nations was founded, over 125,000 women and men Peacekeepers have been at the frontlines of conflict across the globe including Liberia. While a number of persons, civilians and soldiers alike, have paid the ultimate price in their quest for world peace, the problems seem not to be abating. Rather, it is getting worse and might take a global dimension if the prevailing conflicts in Afghanistan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Iraq, Mali, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen and the resulting humanitarian crisis are anything to go by.Today’s conflicts are getting more complex and volatile. Environments are vast and hostile and peacekeeping operations would be required to come up with a new and more robust strategy to tackle new threats. According to the UN Secretary General in his message on Africa Day, he said “We know that conflicts breed where people suffer from poor governance, human rights violation, exclusion and poverty”Now, more than ever, we need to reflect on what has gone before as we need the will of the international community to provide a blueprint for international peace and security. It seems to us peace messengers that either present strategy is wrong or under resourced. With the changing nature of conflicts and with the evolution of threats everywhere; we need to remember times past when we were dealing with two axis of power and the aftermath of World War II that paved the way for competition among nations. While we reflect on times remembered and the changing nature of modern day conflict vis a vis peacekeeping operations for which Ebola has now become a part, we need to introduce new technologies that are not only essential but crucial to fighting those multiple axis of power who are enemies of peace in highly politicized environment. We need to educate our children through the stories and information we provide them with on the wonderful activities undertaken by women. There is no one-off receipt for making this happen but Messengers of Peace intend to mobilize young people, especially women to write their own stories and share these stories with the rest of the world. We recall that through the Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa (GPFA), Women’s groups were funded to provide support and from these groups, we would like you to read their stories. How it did all happen and what did we do to make sure we put a halt to the spread of this deadly virus?Here’s a pearl of wisdom for you: “Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him”-Aldous Huxley.Support the “Ebola Educates” Campaign in kind through your stories or with your generous cash donation. Until next week, when we come to you with another article on: “Ebola Educates- The roles of Women in the fight against Ebola”, Peace First, Peace above all else, May Peace prevail on earth.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe year was 1969. The year Stevie Wonder penned and recorded “Yester Me, Yester You, Yesterday”. The song haunted me then.Today I get an eerie feeling when I hear “Yester Me, Yester You, Yesterday”. It has the ability to make me hurry up my steps and go and finish whatever I still have left undone.I enjoy reflecting on my past. Nearly every preteen and teenage girl in Monrovia played nah foh (knock foot). For you who do not know our culture knock foot is like double dutch without the rope. They also played “haa ska” (hop scotch) which has mutated into a game now that I just don’t recognize. Well for us the boys we had to walk around with our hands covering our butts all day. “Oh so that now you can’t remember free kick?” If your hand was not covering your butt, your friend came and gave you a good kick, thus free kick.And who can forget blade. We took a piece of wire, or cord and made it into a circle. That circle was buried in the sand. All the players had a stick to “juke” into the sand hoping to find the buried ring. The one whose stick found the ring was the winner (usually the one who buried it in the first place). He then had the privilege to pound all the losers’ palms with his folded knuckles. It was called “konking your chicken thigh”, the fat area of the palm just above the thumb.We seem to have transcended the need to provide food, clothing and shelter; to have gone from “Mat” to “Mattresses”; to have ascended to “Higher Heights” as sanctioned by the government of the late President Tolbert. Against the tide of their refusal to vacate the eroding “West Point”, residents missed the opportunity to occupy and own estate housing in Gardnersville, Barnersville and New Georgia, newly built by the government on previously uncharted lands close to Monrovia. Monrovia had become the City That Did Not Sleep compared to New York for this particular characteristic. We staged The Sound of Music with Vasti McClain starring as Maria. TheNational Cultural Center was in full bloom producing Yata Zoe and then the indomitable Nimba Bird. Agnes Nibo, a Kru girl who married Von Ballmoos turned the choir at LU into a high performance act presenting Handel’s Messiah as expertly as they delivered a Bassa or Kpelle song. We were cultured. “Bia Moh Flee”, a song sung by the LU choir in the local vernacular was hailed wherever the LU choir performed in the USA and other parts of the world. The LU choir even recorded a record album in the USA.Luminaries like Hugh Masekela, Mariam Makeba were residents of Monrovia. I saw Nina Simone and played with her daughter Lisa. I had beers with the actor Calvin Lockhart. Hugh could be found on any given evening at the hangout “Attitude” next to Charles Williams’ house. Jimmy Yhap and Bongie Makeba also hung out together and it was Bongie who introduced us to the “click” sounds of South Africa”. RIGHT HERE IN MONROVIA. And, yes we had advanced socially but politically the government had become too comfortable. Basically, we had gotten used to being called The Most Peaceful Nation on Earth.Enter the “Progressives” and the spirit of adventurism. The Progressives had the ability to excite the people politically in ways that the True Whig Party could only imagine and after nearly a century of rule did not have the desire to. Their promise was that the world we knew would be melted away and sort of immediately replaced by basically , utopia. Now I can say that little did the Progressives know that their then political naivety to their own influences was comparable to the True Whig Party’s unpreparedness to deal with situations as they developed. And the situations were developing fast.The people began to feel that nothing was impossible and all could be achieved immediately. Finally the spirit of adventurism fueled the people to challenge the government’s right to lead. And the government fell.Nothing seems to be left from that Great Transition inaugurated by the Spirit of Adventurism and the Progressive. It gave birth to Samuel Doe and The People’s Redemption Council which assimilated the movement and eventually killed it. However, the Revolution’s (as it was remembered) enduring legacy, it has claimed, is the multi party system we “enjoy” today.Finally, The Progressives gave us a healthier appreciation of our traditional names. Rudolph Roberts (Doc) became Togba Nah Tipoteh, Joseph Chesson, Jr. a.k.a Chea Chepoo, Bacchus Matthews (considered the Father of the Movement) remained Bacchus Matthews after convincing everyone else to change their names, and Samuel P. Jackson could not become Samuel P. Tubman; as is rumored he was sired by Vat himself. Uncle Randolph McClain a.k.a. Randolph Kpokpo Weah Worjloh. Quiwonkpa was a “Cooper”; Chris Neyor was a “McGill”; Tom Woiwoyue was a “Smith”; Trohoe Kpaghai was a “Jones” and was recommended for a scholarship abroad by E. B. McClain, Sr., and so on and so on.Yes all these did happen but there was one thing that was not to occur back then in 1969.Our generation was to live forever; at least that’s what we thought. I talk about Michael Itoka, Saku Sillah, Samuel P. Jackson, Morris Saytumah, Chucks and Nuks, Nat and Harry, Sekele, Ben Pursur’s brother, Jimmy Yhap, Steven Pelham, Boikai Fahnbulleh, Rupert Hoff, Amara Freeman, Ian, Fahmare and Renold, Gbo Youh and many others. However just as the sixties was to end and Yester Me, Yester You, Yesterday hit the air waves we came face to face with death. Darling Cole, Patricia Stewart’s sister died from either diabetes, or sickle cell and I for one learned about fear.I had gone up on Benson Street, just above Newport Street and one house from the back of Chief Justice James A. A. Pierre to see Charles Martin. His father, Senator Levi Martin, said that Charles had gone to work at Street and Walker Company and so I left. At the corner of Robert’s Street, a parked car was blaring off Yester Me, Yester You, Yesterday. The words said, “I had a dream, so did you, life was warm and love was true, two kids who where breaking all the rules of yester dreaming”.It was about 9:00 a.m. vacation time. Monrovia was blanketed with a gray hue brought by the dust from the harmattan wind that blew across the Sahara. There overlooking the Masonic Temple on West Benson Street, I thought I saw a man who seemed at least one hundred feet tall. I recognized the spectra even though he had his back turned to Monrovia. He wore a black frock coat that hung just below the knees and just as suddenly he turned and looked at the city. His face had the sadness of a broken heart and wounded spirit. You know when you tell your two year-old, “I will not play with you”. They go and stand in a corner dejected and alone until you run and hug them again. That kind of sadness. But no one hugged President Joseph J. Roberts. With his head bowed in shame and rejection, President Roberts seemed to turn, walk towards the Atlantic and disappeared over the horizon.Scared, I, too, turned and ran over Newport Street and down Benson Street near Ada and Irene Watts’ house where Itter Pharmacy is now. Darling Cole’s mother had just moved down there. The song by Stevie Wonder was on some one’s radio. The words said,” now it seems those yester dreams were just a cruel and foolish game we used to play, Yester Me, Yester You, Yesterday”.I take public transportation into Monrovia every day. The bus puts us down either on the corner of Broad and Johnson Streets or on Buchanan Street. We then walk into Monrovia in groups of five because at any time Zogos can attack and jerk your bag, snatch your phone or juke you.In Monrovia we are not stabbed but get juked.One bus has earned the reputation of being the most deadly transporter after causing the deaths of at least 7-10 pem-pem boys alone this year. The bus is known as Killer Bean. Killer Bean is actually the Yellow School bus from America, perhaps the friendliest symbol in the western world but in this culture of “Me, Myself and I”,WHICH IS PRESENT DAY MONROVIA, the Yellow School bus has taken on the persona of the evil Killer Bean.Let me tell you what I see at 5:30, right before the sun rises. Monrovia seems to wake up from a dream. A dream where “life was warm and love was true.” The city seems to dream of a time of peace as opposed to the hellish reality that night time Monrovia is without a police officer in sight to assist a citizen from getting raped or assaulted or juked.At 5:30 a.m. with C.W.A. on your right, the Baptist Church on your left, the air heavy with the smell of Kalla being fried on an open fire, you have one last glimpse of colonial Monrovia. The city where everyone knew each other.Then the sun comes up from over the Ducor and you have got to side-step a plastic bag of fresh ‘boot’ flung into the streets the night before. And of course now you can see the used up condom on the church’s steps, testimony to last night’s frolic. And no one can miss the fresh peepee scent as it wrestles for control of the morning air against the Sweet Palm Butter “cold bowl” odor from the Lappa-Be-Door near C.W.A. Then I recall what we had and how I feel lost and I feel sad with nothing left but the memories of Yester Me, Yester You, and Yesterday.

first_imgOil and gas sector As the time draws closer for first oil, which is expected in the first half of 2020, Government has been making plans to prepare for this new sector, which has the potential to transform the economy, improve infrastructure, and advance the social services in the country.However, much has been said about the Government’s slothfulness in looking towards implementing key pieces of legislation that would guide the sector beyond that critical year.Adding his voice to that argument is former Government minister and political analyst Dr Henry Jeffrey, who feels Government’s approach is questionable.A drill ship offshore Guyan“From the little that I read in the press, I am not impressed that we (Guyana), or the Government, has its hands on all the major pulses,” Jeffrey told Guyana Times in a recent interview.He opined that the coalition Administration has not inspired in the Guyanese populace any significant hope that it knows what it is doing in this sector.He said, “We have now set up an Energy Department. We have a head who doesn’t know anything about oil, and we will have to depend on somebody as the chief technical head who worked with a foreign Government for 6 months.”Dr Jeffrey was referring to Dr Mark Bynoe, who is experienced in the area of climate change and other environmental issues.On the other hand, the technical head he referred to is Matthew Wilks, who was appointed Oil and Gas Adviser in the Department of Energy within the Ministry of the Presidency. Wilks has worked in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, among several other countries.It was, however, reported that Wilks had, in January of this year, joined a company called Spring Stone Energy Limited, and had worked there until he took up the post at Guyana’s Department of Energy.There has been great suspicion that the company lists Matthew Edmund Wilks as its director and Amanda Catherine Wilks as a director, finance manager and secretary of the company. The company also has two shareholders, it has been reported.“You can have hundreds of years working for the industry itself, but you have to know the ramifications with working with pressures, particularly a place like Guyana. And what does that mean? If you work with the Government of Australia, the relation with them and the Opposition might be a normal democratic thing. It’s not here,” Dr Jeffrey stated.Local contentOn the issue of local content, the political analyst also expressed disappointment at the manner in which this issue is being dealt with by both the Government and those within the local private sector, whom he feels should be demanding certain benefits.“I think the local content was perhaps one of the first legal documents we should have had. Up to now we are still messing around with it. And people are saying, ‘Don’t worry we’ll look after you’. There is no rule that you have to use services in Guyana,” he added.The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) had submitted a model local content legislation to the Government, saying that the move is part of safeguarding the rights of Guyanese businesses. The Chamber has expressed disappointment that there has been no legislative framework since 2015, when the first oil discovery was made here.President of the GCCI, Deodat Indar, has contended that the draft Local Content Legislation, if adopted by the APNU/AFC Government, would fill that gap and correct the wrongs being done to Guyanese businesses.The draft Local Content Policy has in recent months been criticised for lacking provisions which would safeguard against exploitation by companies, especially since there have been intensified reports of local companies being bypassed for contracts and services.While Dr Jeffrey recognises the work the private sector has been doing in regard to the draft Local Content Policy, he said, “I see they are doing things, but they have always been relatively weak. If it were a case of Jamaica, it would have been a different game. Yes, they are pressing, but they are still in that initial stage; and maybe the entire political structure has made them so. They are not as vocal, pressing and pushy as they would have been normally expected to be.”The second review of the local content policy is expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year. Government has said it is important for the new legislation to be ‘balanced’, since a ‘too strongly national’ local content policy can jeopardise the efficiency or the viability of the company being relied on to harness the resource.Guyana is now home to the world’s biggest new deep-water oil discovery. United States oil giant ExxonMobil has been keen to push development of the oil reserves. Production could begin in 2020 with production of some 500,000 barrels of oil a day.

first_img…says situation could be dubbed an act of domestic terrorismThe current situation regarding the threats being made to blow up schools and hurt students has not only caused great fear and anxiety among many school populations, but it also points to the mind frame of some students and the extent to which they could perpetrate violence.This is according to Child Rights Activist and Social worker Nicole Cole who told Guyana Times on Sunday that the current situation is wholly disheartening and can be labelled as “domestic terrorism”. She said the fact that School of the Nations closed its doors for an entire school week confirms this.“The new threats must be taken very seriously by the parents of those children who attend those schools (Queens College and Bishops High School). And theyChild Rights activistNicole Coletoo have the option of not allowing their children to attend school until the Education Ministry can guarantee their safety,” she opined.Cole is resolute that as it stands now, no one is safe, as these individual(s) continue to wreak havoc and create fear in the minds of students of the nation’s educational institutions both private and public.Asked whether she was pleased with the handling of this situation particularly by the Guyana Police Force, the Rights of the Child Commissioner said the lack of capacity and human resources is a hindrance.“There is need for a joint service approach whereby the Guyana Defence Force is called upon to assist in intelligence gathering by utilising our best and brightest trained soldiers. The police cannot win this battle without involving the army who will help to boost the capacity of the police to quickly bring this domestic terrorism to a halt. The nation is now gripped by fear and is traumatised,” she added.The outspoken activist is also recommending that the Education Ministry embark on a campaign that will help to restore hope and confidence, while simultaneously quelling the fear that exists within schools. She noted that it is the obligation of the Government and the Ministry to ensure the safety of all students.Cole noted that Article 19 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) states that “Children have a right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated in body and mind,” while in Article 4 it states, “The Government has a responsibility to make sure your rights are protected. They must help your family to protect your rights and create an environment where you can grow and reach your potential.”However, she rightfully pointed out that the environment at School of the Nations, Queens College and Bishops High School are polluted and unsafe because of the threat of what she described as domestic terrorism which is the threat to use violence to harm others.Terror zones“Schools are supposed to be safe zones but currently they are ‘terror zones’ and this situation needs our joint services to act in an operation titled “Operation Restore Calm and Order”! Article 6 of the UNCRC makes a poignant point whereby it concisely states “you have the right to be alive” and Guyana has signed and ratified the UNCRC to which it is now duty-bound as a nation to ensure children are duly protected.”Aside from those recommendations, Cole said in the meantime, Queens College and Bishops High School will now have to boost their security by scanning school bags for offensive weapons, place armed guards at those schools under immediate threat and monitor persons going in and out of those schools.She recommends too that persons entering these schools should be scanned to ensure that they aren’t carrying a weapon that can be used to kill and maim children. “There can be no shortcuts to protecting our nation’s children who are thy future. All means necessary needs to examined and explored to produce the desired outcome which is our children’s right to be alive as stated clearly in Article 6 of the UNCRC.”Cole has called on Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan to take a lead role in the matter and urged him to convene an emergency security meeting with the joint services aimed at addressing this new domestic terrorism occasioned upon our nation’s schools. “His failure to act swiftly and decisively should be seen as unfit, improper and a dereliction of duty as Guyana’s Minister of Public Security,” she opined.Cole has also reiterated calls for all the students at the schools with immediate threats to be screened for social and/or psychological issues. I am advocating for clinical assessment of all students. Everyone should have a screening. You screen for violence, for suicide, homicidal inclinations, “she added.The Caribbean Community (Caricom) recently hosted a Youth Crime and Violence Summit here in Guyana in which numerous recommendations were made on how to effectively tackle youth crime and violence. During that forum, it was highlighted that the Region has some of the highest figures of youths being convicted for crimes, with 80 per cent of prosecuted crimes being committed between the ages of 19 and 29.

first_imgHighlighting that the neglected Dorfolk Elderly Home in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) has been in a state of disrepair, Regional Chairman Renis Morian has indicated that the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) is currently seeking funding for its rehabilitation.While the building has been in the community for decades, only a senior citizen’s club – the Golden Years Club – is presently operating out of a small section of the building.Lindeners have been calling for the structure to be repaired and made into a fully functional senior citizen’s home, owing to the lack that such a facility does not exist in the community.The facility is as non-governmental organisation and is run by a committee, although the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) is partially responsible for the senior’s home.Officials have in the past noted that the lack of funds has been a sore issue in moving the facility forward. However, Morian said the RDC, aside from its budgetary allocation, has been seeking funding to offset repairs.“There are a number of projects that we would have asked around, spoken with different agencies (about)… This is outside of the region’s budget… One is to rehabilitate the Dorfolk Home.The neglected Dorfolk Elderly Home in LindenThe Dorfolk Home has been there for a long time serving our adults and it is in a state of disrepair for a over a decade. So we’re moving to have the Dorfolk Home rehabilitated… We have spoken to Minister Raphael Trotman and we’ve spoken to the Minister of Public Infrastructure. We’ve spoken with folks from the Ministry of the Presidency. We went asking all around…for support,” he indicated.The Regional Chairman added that he has been in contact with the facility’s committee which has expressed willingness in moving forward. He noted however that there are some legal limitations which have to be ironed out.“I said to the custodians, ‘For the Government to spend money on a non-Government building, there’s some legal things to be done’. The RDC don’t want to run the Dorfolk Home, we don’t want to take over,” Morian noted, citing that the aim is solely to rehabilitate the facility.Meanwhile, Councillor Vladimir Glasgow has made the recommendation for the facility to be fenced. The Golden Years Club, which has been in existence at the facility for 22 years, consists of seniors who engage in activities such as exercise, craft, health education and cookery. Members have outlined several issues regarding the infrastructure of the building, noting that it was not constructed in a senior citizen friendly fashion.For instance, they noted that the washroom facility is situated too far away from the section they occupy and there is an opening in the middle of the building, which leaves it exposed to the elements.Presently the building is in a substandard state, with many abandoned rooms, apart from the section that is occupied by the Club.last_img read more
