Rohee upset over scrapping of Strategic Management Dept

first_img– slams Top Cop for opposing Police reform By Devina SamarooGovernment’s plan to scrap the Strategic Management Department (SDM) has clearly ruffled the feathers of former Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee who has since accused Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud of besmirching his character, denigrating the efficacy of the SMD, and disrespecting a PPP/C Cabinet decision.Former Home Affairs Minister Clement RoheeCommissioner Seelall PersaudThe SMD was established in May 2013, based on recommendations by UK-based CapitalSymmonds Consultancy Firm, to oversee the implementation of the Guyana Police Force’s 2013-2017 Strategic Plan.However, according to media reports, the Police Commissioner indicated that the SMD had outlived its usefulness, so moves were afoot to bring a halt to its operations.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan later confirmed that the employees’ contracts would not be renewed as Government would shut down the unit.This decision did not sit well with the former Minister in charge of the security sector who took to the media to register his concerns and lambaste the Top Cop for his decision.In a lengthy press statement on Thursday, Rohee stated that with the passing of former Police Commissioner Henry Greene and the retirement of his successor, Leroy Brumell, “certain” senior ranks who rose to the top of the Guyana Police Force became resistant and intolerant to the work of the civilian-led SMD, its oversight role and its joint responsibility to ensure implementation of the Strategic Plan.“Principal among those who considered the SMD and the Ministry of Home Affairs as intrusive were Seelall Persaud, Balram Persaud (deceased) and David Ramnarine,” Rohee stated.He contended that to now claim that the SMD had “outlived its usefulness” was disingenuous and duplicitous.Rohee then argued that there were elements at the senior management level of the Police Force who were never supporters of reform in relation to the implementation of the strategic plan drafted by the Consultancy Firm, particularly where a civilian-led Unit was mandated to oversee the implementation of the plan.Public Security Minister Ramjattan had explained that the SMD was no longer necessary, since there were adequate measures under the Citizen Security Programme to improve the performance of the Force.He reiterated that contracts of the unit’s members would be coming to an end soon and would not be renewed; therefore, the work of the unit ceased upon the completion of the contracts.last_img read more

Liberia’s Political Transformation is Irreversible’

first_imgAmbassador Designate Lewis G. Brown, former Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT), has said that Liberia’s political transformation is irreversible. Speaking during the MICAT regular Tuesday press briefing in Monrovia, Mr. Brown, who was on Wednesday appointed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as an ambassador, said that the new governance model of increasing accountability to the people through steadier commitment to the democratic principle of checks and balances is being institutionalized. “Liberia’s transformation is indeed on its trajectory to build a more just and equitable society for all. This can be fashioned on the works of each of us. I thank the Legislature and the Judiciary for their cooperation. I understand that the tangibles- roads, ports and electricity- have understandably commanded public interest.“But I have seen our society leap forward on account of the changes in the intangibles. This is through the coordinated efforts of the three branches and evolution and consolidation of the new governance model in which the legislature has gotten stronger and judiciary more independent.“Even though politics prevents the public from admitting to this, the new democratic order continues to unfold, Liberians and friends of Liberia are settling in the truth that Liberia’s political transformation is irreversible.“I thank the Liberian media for their cooperation and support. Of course we have had our ups and downs but like we partnered against Ebola, I leave with the impression that that partnership can grow beyond the sidelines of the ‘watchdog’ into one which elevates the Liberian journalist to a place around the table of national decision making,” he said. Ambassador Brown said Liberia and the African continent need journalists who are partners in development because it is no longer enough that “you watch out for and merely report the news, but that you are in partnership with the government.”“The simple truth is that each action or inaction of the government affects all journalists, their families and friends. This, then, is why journalists must continue to advocate for that which makes our country better,” he noted.However, he said, such advocacies must be pursued fairly and justly so that the society can continue to be better, more peaceful and prosperous for all Liberians.“Over the course of my service, I became increasingly aware of various pressures on journalists. One important pressure is that more often than not, journalists are internationally celebrated by the deterioration in relations, or for the lack of a better descriptive, the perceived levels of antagonism between the government and the media,” he said.Amb. Brown said the evolving truth is that the government and the media must work together for the good of society, adding: “This is demanded in a democracy if either partner intends to succeed.” Ambassador Brown served as Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT) for four years. He was yesterday appointed by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as an ambassador. He has yet to be assigned a diplomatic post.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Public consultation garners mixed response

first_img$200 garbage fee proposal…defaulters will see no garbage collectionFollowing Mayor Patricia Chase Green’s order for Town Clerk Royston King to hold at least one consultation before implementing a monthly $200 garbage collection fee in the capital city, the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) on Thursday hosted its first public consultation on the measure which garnered aA few members of the public gathered at City Hall on Friday when they ironed out issues related to a garbage collection fee in the city. One elected councillor, Deputy Mayor Lionel Jaikarran was present at the meetingmixed response from members of the public.Participants particularly took umbrage that with the exception of Deputy Mayor Lionel Jaikarran, no other elected Councillor was present at the meeting held at City Hall. In an aim to calm the brief show of tension, M&CC Public Relations Officer Debra Lewis said that Thursday’s exercise was the first of several “conversations” that would be held in the various communities across Georgetown on the implementation of the fee.Earlier this month, Town Clerk Royston King opted to impose the $200 fee, but the plan was halted after Mayor Chase Green observed that the full council was yet to approve the proposal. On Thursday, King was not present at the first public consultation, but his Deputy, Sharon Harry-Munroe, was there. The Deputy Town Clerk highlighted the shortfalls of the rates and taxes being unchanged since 1994 and further told the gathering that the city having to offset the service “has become burdensome”.At the meeting, it was observed that outside of Georgetown, some persons were paying as much as $400 for garbage collection services and on that note, some of the few members of the public present contended that the $200 fee was affordable. One such person was pensioner Michael Nelson, of D’Andrade Street, Newtown, saying that he did not mind taking the few dollars out of the $500 increase which was given for his Old Age Pension for 2018.“I willing to pay the increase to see Georgetown return to what it was – a garden city,” the pensioner stressed.Desire Younge, of Lamaha Springs, indicated that she was comfortable paying the $200 fee, but Sterling DeLima, of Subryanville, opposed any increase, saying that he expected services for his rates and taxes. DeLima also contended that he would be affected if he opted to pay and his neighbour did not and pondered what measures the city would utilise to ensure that funds were paid over.In a lengthy response, Solid Waste Management Director Walter Narine said all payments would be made at City Hall and noted that by-laws were in the pipeline to deal with defaulters who refuse to pay the fee.“We will not be collecting garbage from people who do not pay their fee,” Narine affirmed.As the consultation continued, more residents reiterated calls for the fee to be included in their overall rates and taxes and said that there ought to be more consultations with Councillors of the various constituencies. City Hall’s staff again highlighted that many persons were not forthcoming with their rates and taxes which continued to hamper the organisation from effective operation.Disparity of taxesAnother issue highlighted was the disparity of taxes where owners of homes converted into apartments were paying the same rates as individual homes. On this, some members of the public called for a revaluation of the properties in the capital city to ensure that there was more equitable tax payment rather than implementing an across-the-board garbage fee for all residential homeowners.City Council Accounting Manager John Douglas, however, observed that the Council was encountering increased costs with no suitable expenditure and that the city was asking each citizen to subsidise its garbage collection at a rate of 30 per cent. His colleague Narine explained that calculations suggested that it cost the city about $536 to transport garbage from a receptacle to the landfill.The meeting lasted about two hours.At the last statutory meeting at the City Council level, the Town Clerk had observed that the collection fee was discussed at the level of the Finance Committee and was raised at the last statutory meeting, but no decisive action was taken on it. He had also claimed that the matter was put in the public sphere for feedback and they had received positive feedback ever since. However, Chairman of the Finance Committee, Councillor Oscar Clarke had stated that a firm proposal with all the implications must be brought to the Council for agreement and approval before the charge was implemented, a contention that he reiterated at a meeting prior to Thursday’s public discussion.

Louis van Gaal wants Manchester United youngsters to prove themselves on pre-season tour of USA

first_imgManchester United manager Louis van Gaal wants to give the club’s youth players a chance to prove themselves on their pre-season tour to the United States.While the Dutchman is trying to bring in more signings in addition to that of Memphis Depay, who has joined from PSV Eindhoven, he wants those further down the ranks at Old Trafford to push for contention to join his squad.“I shall take a lot of youngsters with us to the USA,” said van Gaal, whose team will play four matches against Club America, San Jose Earthquakes, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in next month’s International Champions Cup.“They have the chance to show themselves and then we shall wait and observe how they can develop.“You get your chances always, especially in pre-season and, when you grab that chance, you have maybe the possibility to join us next season.”United’s Under-21s won their league last season and while Van Gaal recognised that success he believes a greater achievement will be to have at least one player from the youth ranks regularly make it to first-team level.“A championship for the second team is fantastic but I think one player every year in the first-team as a line-up player is much more important,” he told 1 Adnan Januzaj last_img read more

Saving his best for last

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It would mean a lot to win this one.” As it would Scheckter. “I’m almost in tears here with Chevrolet going,” Scheckter said, “especially with how much power we’ve got. It would be great (to get a win), it would be really great. If we could get a win in their last race, it would be really good.” That could be said for the other 20 drivers in the field. Although Dan Wheldon has the championship locked up, there are other battles for positions in the points race. Wheldon, who has won six races this season, is seventh on the grid. Today’s race – set for a 12:50 p.m. green-flag start on ESPN – is the season finale for the series. It also is the final IRL race scheduled at the speedway and the last race in which Chevrolet will supply engines to IndyCar teams. “We’re happy with the car and that run,” said Franchitti, a member of the four-car Andretti Green Racing team. “Qualifying on these types of tracks is more to do with the engine guys and our engineers; they hit it right, and the engine was really, really strong. FONTANA – Battling a troublesome wind, Dario Franchitti put together his finest qualifying effort in seven races at California Speedway and will be on the pole for today’s Toyota Indy 400. Franchitti zipped around the two-mile track in 32.8171 seconds, 219.398 mph, to edge Tomas Scheckter’s 218.92 mph. It was Franchitti’s first pole of the season and his second in his four-year Indy Racing League career. It was enough to set an IndyCar Series record of 16 top-10 starts this season. center_img “We just don’t seem to be very quick,” said Wheldon, also part of the AGR team. “I’m sure our team is good enough to make sure we have a reasonable car in the race, I’m just not sure how good the car will be.” Franchitti’s other AGR teammate Tony Kanaan, the 2004 series champ, is 26 points ahead of Sam Hornish Jr. in the scrap for second. Thirty-six points separate Franchitti, Helio Castroneves and Scott Sharp for fourth, and Vitor Meira, Bryan Herta, Scheckter and Patrick Carpentier are within 26 points of each other in the fight for seventh. Kanaan is seventh spots behind Hornish on the grid. “We really struggle in qualifying as a team,” Kanaan said, “but we are all on different setups; that’s why you see all of us quick at different times. If you look at our qualifying setups, they are all different. Nothing is similar. We know we have a good race car, so we’re not too worried.” A big story line centers around rookie Danica Patrick, who will sit outside Hornish on the second row. Hornish posted a speed of 218.602 mph, and Patrick was fourth fastest at 218.199. “The wind changed so much, and our strategy was definitely a two-gear strategy, and I had to leave it in the top gear the whole time because fifth gear was too short,” Patrick said. “We took a chance, and the wind wasn’t doing what we thought it was doing. “I thought we had a good chance for the pole. I’m disappointed, but I have won three poles this year. I was looking for the rookie record (four). But now I’d take a win in my rookie year. This track is like many of the tracks we have raced this year and have been competitive (on). I think we will have a chance to win, but so will Buddy (Rice) and Vitor.” Hornish has won two of the three IndyCar Series races at the speedway. “Once we got the gearing right, the Marlboro Team Penske car was exactly where we needed it to be for qualifying,” Hornish said. “You can win from anywhere on the grid, but it is always nice to start up front to avoid any problems on the start. “The race is what counts, and the speedway has always been good to me. I’d love to end the season with another win here.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
