Dear Editor,

There seems to be a concern by a negligible number of Guyanese that the First Lady is not making public appearances. Why should the First lady make public appearances and for whose sake? Is it because the President of America and other countries take their wives, First Ladies, almost everywhere they go on public business, that President Jagdeo must do the same? Is this not being a copy cat?

The First Lady will decide when and where she wants to go with the consent of her husband and not the public.

The people of Guyana are struggling, facing severe hardships and instead of addressing the President, who is constitutionally responsible to prudently resolve the woes of the people, we are publicly prying into the First Lady's personal life.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Persaud
