Sacrifices of the ballot box martyrs (Part 2)

first_imgDear Editor,On that most memorable but fateful day of July 16th 1973, Corporal Collins, Privates McKenzie, Layne and London (Blackie) of the GDF, along with Sergeant Ross and Police Constable Seecharran of the Police Force, accompanied Lieutenant Henry. They were armed with tear smoke grenades, respirators, steel helmets, two sub-machine guns, rifles and bayonets. Henry himself was armed with one of the sub-machine gun, Corporal Collins had the other.The PNC tugs, with all their armed might, descended on the Corentyne with the clear intention of taking full control of the ballot boxes and removing the representatives of the other three political parties from around the boxes.Bholanauth Parmanand was shot and killed in the full view of villagers. His wife and four children had to endure the death of the sole bread-winner of their home, as their loving husband and father was ripped from them in the most brutal manner possible.Young Jagan Ramessar was shot and killed, and the army threw him in their vehicle and drove him around as he was kicked and stamped upon. He was paraded around to send a message to the people in Berbice. Approximately five hours later, after he was unspeakably desecrated, he was taken to the New Amsterdam hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.Ramessar, only eighteen years old at the time, was brutally murdered by the PNC; and his parents and family still cry in response to the outcome of his sacrificial demise. Parmanand’s immediate family and his friends, forty-five years later, still vividly recall the unbelievably brutal and monstrous debacle that was the 1973 RIGGED Elections.My friend Reshiram Motie and his friends tearfully recounted for me what they witnessed on that fateful day. Motie suffered a broken nose. His body was black and blue, as he was cuffed and kicked. Scores of persons were badly beaten and threatened. Families were humiliated and separated. Still alive, Reshiram Motie remains a genuine activist of the PPP, regardless of the many challenges.During the campaign before July 16th, 1973, it was clear that the PPP meetings attracted massive support, while the PNC’s had a sprinkling of people. Motie, sobbing, told me that when the Elections results were announced and the PNC was declared the winner, the people did not accept the results. Sobbing and trying to hold back his tears, Motie said the PNC terrorists continued to terrorize the Berbicians, as hundreds of people fled their homes to Suriname, while others went into hiding for weeks and months.As we honour the supreme sacrifices of these two men in the fight for free and fair elections, Motie has said he is disappointed to see some people, like Moses Nagamoottoo and Ramjattan (now fully entrenched in the bowels of the PNC/AFC cabal), joining with the criminals for opportunistic reasons….(rearing to repeat the terror of the past). Some 45 years later, Guyana is once again where we were in 1973.Guyanese must never forget that many eminent persons, such as Dr. Walter Rodney, Michael Forde and Father Darke, were also assassinated and/or murdered during the dark days of the PNC dictatorship. Today we must draw strength, unite, and work together for the return of democracy, which in a most clandestine manner was taken away from us.We must ensure that the memories of Bholanauth Parmanand and Jagan Ramessar live on in us, and let their supreme sacrifice inspire us to rally with Cheddi Jagan’s People’s Progressive Party.As we prepare for Local Government elections, let us walk the walk; campaign house to house, and ensure that every voter comes out and votes. The fight for free and fair elections in Guyana is once again at the top of our list of struggles.Let us continue to live and work for a better Guyana. Long live the memories of Bholanauth and Ramessar!Sincerely,Neil Kumarlast_img read more

Nothing will change at City Hall

first_imgDear EditorThe damning report into the affairs of City Hall is out and makes for interesting reading. Will the Town Clerk be dragged off to face SOCU/SARA in respect to the undervalued land he sold?With all the shenanigans levelled against the former chief citizen, one would have thought it would’ve been inconceivable for any position, particularly with regards to finances, to be foisted upon this individual.Was the position of the all-powerful Town Clerk compensatory? From where I stand nothing will change…we can expect more garbage contractors’ strike, more late payments of salaries to staff, etc.From all accounts, the hierarchy of City Hall practised what was blatantly and openly preached at another forum recently – giving wuk to persons of a certain ilk.Lord please help us in this lost and confused land.Sincerely,Shamshun Mohamedlast_img read more

South African ‘legend’ Philemon Masinga dies

first_img0Shares0000Marcel Desailly of France tackles Philemon Masinga (L) of South Africa during a 1998 World Cup group match in Marseille © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Jan 13 – Former South Africa star Philemon ‘Chippa’ Masinga died Sunday aged 49 in a Johannesburg hospital from cancer, the national football association said in a statement.Retired South Africa captain Lucas Radebe, who played with Masinga at then English top-flight club Leeds United in the 1990s, said the country has lost a “great legend”. “For us as Africans it was a great experience,” Radebe told the BBC. “We were not used to the weather and we struggled a little bit — we kept each other warm at times.“Phil was a big hit with the team and the players. I looked up to him and I think he inspired me the most. It was absolutely great the way he adapted to the situation.“He was easy to get along with and he was most respected at the club as a person.”Football association president Danny Jordaan said: “We have lost a giant of South African football. This is a sad day and I am gutted.“I saw him last Sunday before I flew to Dakar (for Confederation of African Football activities) and although Phil was not feeling well, he was in good spirits.“Before saying goodbye, I promised ‘Chippa’ that I would visit him again sometime this week and now our hero has gone.”Former Leeds team-mate Noel Whelan tweeted: “Really sad news to learn that a guy I spent so much time with, laughs and games together, has passed away.“He was not just a friend and strike partner but one of the nicest, kindest guys I’ve met, was a pleasure and privilege to have known and played with you Phil.”A physically formidable forward, he scored the goal that beat Congo Brazzaville 1-0 in Soweto and took Bafana Bafana (The Boys) to the 1998 World Cup in France.Masinga ran on to a pass from midfield and slammed an unstoppable shot over the Congolese goalkeeper before a capacity 80,000 crowd, including then president Nelson Mandela.Masinga was part of the South African ‘golden generation’ that won the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations just four years after an apartheid-induced international ban was lifted.Bafana qualified for the 1998 and 2002 World Cup tournaments, but the national team has been in steady decline since.He played for local clubs Jomo Cosmos and Mamelodi Sundowns before moving abroad in 1994 to join Leeds.Masinga also played for St Gallen in Switzerland, Salernitana and Bari in Italy and Al Wahda in the United Arab Emirates.The attacker scored 18 goals in 58 international appearances between 1992 and 2001.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Revealed: Jose Mourinho’s eight top transfer targets at Manchester United

first_imgJose Mourinho is set to take over at Manchester United.Louis van Gaal was relieved of his duties on Monday after days of speculation following the Red Devils’ FA Cup victory at Wembley.Mourinho is the man on everyone’s lips, and there is already much speculation over what plans the Portuguese has for the club before the start of next season.Mainly who he could sign to transform a tired, almost unimaginative Van Gaal side.So take a look at Mourinho’s reported top targets in the summer transfer window by viewing the slideshow above. 8 Ezequiel Garay (Zenit Saint Petersburg) – Having played under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid (and also sold by him to Benfica in 2011), Garay is more than familiar with the Portuguese’s management style. He could, The Guardian report, be second on Mourinho’s list of wanted centre backs after John Stones. 8 John Stones (Everton) – Mourinho was desperate to sign Stones last summer at Chelsea, having four bids rejected. It seems his interest very much remains, and reports claim he will attempt to lure the England international to Old Trafford. While his season has been disappointing at Everton, his stock is still high. He is expected to cost around £40m. Mauro Icardi (Inter) – Icardi is another player who was linked with Mourinho when at Chelsea. Inter’s no.9 scored 16 goals last season and is said to be a backup striking option, should a move for Morata fail. Given he currently owns Inter’s captain’s armband, he could be given a sizeable price tag. João Mário (Sporting CP) – The powerful central midfielder scored seven goals in a commanding season, with his performances adding much to his value and reputation. He could cost in excess of £25m and isn’t short of interest. The Daily Mail claim Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are all keen. Van Gaal has struggled to find a midfielder with the stamina and strength required for any side wanting to challenge on all fronts and Mario could be the man Mourinho wants to fulfil this role. 8 André Gomes (Valencia) – The Portugal international, who has five senior international caps to his name, has been linked with United earlier in the season and it seems Mourinho is also an admirer. It’s reported the 22-year-old is likely to cost around £40m, despite featuring in a Valencia side underachieving. He has been one of the club’s most exciting players and might be ready for a new challenge in the Premier League. Sadio Mane (Southampton) – According to the Telegraph, United still retain an interest in signing Mane, having been linked with the Saints’ no.10 previously. 8 8 Zlatan Ibrahimovi? – Ibrahimovi? is a free agent at the end of June and United are among the clubs being linked with a move for the striker. He and Mourinho are understood to have an excellent relationship, which could prove crucial in any deal. A Swedish report even claimed Mourinho could offer the 34-year-old an assistant manager role at Old Trafford. 8 Alvaro Morata (Juventus) – check out Jose Mourinho’s targets in full by clicking the arrow above, right – Arsenal have been credited with interest in the striker lately, as reports suggest Arsène Wenger is to launch a £51m bid for the striker. The manager could therefore be irritated to learn United are keen on his signature, too. Morata scored 12 goals and registered nine assists last season, and despite being far from prolific, won’t come cheap. 8 8last_img read more
