The President should do the right thing
February 12, 2004
I FIND it very strange that the mighty United States of America and Canada has reacted to the allegations made against Minister Ronald Gajraj by revoking visas issued to the Minister and his wife, but that the Jagdeo administration does not see it necessary to react to the allegations.
The failure of the Government to launch an investigation into the allegations made against a Government official - an allegation that would dispel any doubt in the minds of their supporters and non-supporters alike - is very upsetting indeed.
President Jagdeo is much liked and respected among all Guyanese, but his silence on this matter is creating a lot of suspicion. I wish to urge the President to do the right thing so that Guyana can be a peaceful country. Peace is what we all desire.
