Cllr. Fonati Koffa Joins Race for Grand Kru County

first_imgThe chief executive officer and president of BRCT, Mr. Gbenimah B. Slopadoe (left) and Cllr. KoffaResigns as Minister of State without Portfolio; Donates to Road Maintenance ProjectSpecial prosecutor Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa has finally joined the race for the representative seat of Electoral District #2 in Grand Kru County in the October 10 presidential and legislative elections, for which he has been cleared by the National Elections Commission (NEC). Cllr. Koffa will contest on the ticket of the Liberty Party (LP), which he once served as chairman. He will be going against Rep. Numene T.H. Bartekwa of the Unity Party (UP).The special prosecutor is responsible for investigating the Global Witness Report on Liberia as well as investigating and resolving all allegations contained in current and past General Auditing Commission (GAC) reports.Cllr. Koffa told newsmen on Monday, July 24 in his office at the Foreign Ministry that he resigned as Minister of State without Portfolio on Friday, July 7, but remains the head of the Special Presidential Taskforce – an auxiliary of the Ministry of Justice. However, this newspaper has reliably learned that President Sirleaf is yet to officially accept his resignation and therefore he is still carrying out his functions as Minister of State without Portfolio.The special prosecutor made the remarks during a brief donation program where he presented US$1,000 to the Bridge Rural Communities for Trade (BRCT) – a local non-profit organization – to help mend the “very difficult and impassable road conditions of the southeast that are responsible for the shortage of basic commodities and social services.”The Grand Kru County District # 2 aspirant said the “assistance is intended to help to rehabilitate the roads to maintain trade in the southeast,” adding: “We hope this token will help mobilize your men to maintain our roads intact for our people.”For his part, the chief executive officer (CEO) and president of BRCT, Mr. Gbenimah B. Slopadoe, thanked Cllr. Koffa for the gesture and termed it as the highest donation. It may be recalled that about five months ago, BRCT launched a campaign for US$500,000 for phase one of its road project to connect five southeastern counties, including Grand Gedeh, Sinoe, River Gee, Grand Kru and Maryland. BRCT is a non-profit organization with both local and international support.Mr. Slopadoe stressed that the road maintenance project will deal with the “very difficult and impassable” road conditions of the southeast to alleviate the difficulties of citizens there in their daily commuting activities.Other ResignationsBesides the resignation of the Minister of State without Portfolio, it has also been gathered that other senior officials of government including Bong County Superintendent Selena Mappy-Polson and Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister Julia Duncan-Cassell have also resigned to contest in the October elections.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pending Constitutional Court ruling further delays start of trial

first_img“Mango Man” murderBy Shemuel FanfairAlthough 10 years have passed since businessman Kumar “Mango Man” Singh was shot and killed during an invasion of his Cove and John, East Coast Demerara home, the trial of two men implicated for his murder could not proceed at the High Court.Businessman Kumar “Mango Man” Singh was shot dead 10 years ago during an invasion at his homeMark Royden Williams, called “Smallie”, along with another accused, Sherwin Nero, also known as “Catty”, made their second appearance before Justice Brassington Reynolds on Thursday, but the State was once again prevented from laying the murder indictment against the duo.The continued judicial delay is as a result of a pending matter that is before acting Chief Justice Roxane George, which was brought on by defence counsel Nigel Hughes on behalf of Nero, which, among other things, contends that nine years waiting for a trial violates Article 144 of Guyana’s Constitution. Section I of the Article states: “If any person is charged with a criminal offence, then, unless the charge is withdrawn, the case shall be afforded a fair hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial court established by law.”At Thursday’s court appearance, Hughes said that the acting Chief Justice’s ruling on the matter could be handed down by year-end or early next year.After this disclosure was made, Justice Reynolds, in acknowledging receipt of the prosecution’s response to Hughes’ submissions, further noted that his court “ought to await the pronouncement by the constitutional court”. As such, the Judge deferred the matter to be heard in another session of the Demerara Assizes. Amid heavy security, the duo was led off and escorted to prison where they will remain until the matter is called up in court again.However, “Smallie” will still remain incarcerated whether or not he is absolved of the killing of “Mango Man”, since he was sentenced to death by hanging in February 2017 for his involvement in the 2008 Bartica Massacre whereby 12 persons, including three Policemen, were slaughtered.Williams’ brushes with the law did not end with his death sentence as he escaped prison in July 2017. During his escape, prison officer Odinga Wickham was killed, and the Camp Street Prison was reduced to ashes. Williams was recaptured on October 9, 2017 on his way to Suriname. He was a passenger in a minibus, which was intercepted at Weldaad, West Coast Berbice.The “Mango Man” murder case came up for High Court trial in June 2014 before another Judge, but was prevented from continuing owing to an objection by one of the accused. On August 30, 2007, four gunmen stormed Singh’s home where he was shot dead. In July 2008, the two suspects were initially charged for the capital offence.last_img read more

Cabinet still to decide on new GuySuCo Board – Minister

first_img…2 months after old Board expiredSixty-one days after the life of the Board of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) expired, Cabinet is still deliberating on the matter and it seems as though they will not be ready anytime soon to announce a new body.In fact, Agriculture Minister Noel Holder told Guyana Times via a telephone interview on Tuesday that the matter is still before Cabinet and he cannot disclose at what stage these discussions are at.Holder who was at Cabinet said they could make an announcement soon, but this is the same thing he said three months ago and has said repeatedly to everyone who have sought answers from him.“We are discussing possible names… I put some names up, they look at it. They say vetting (by) this other person and so on and so forth. So, it’s in the course of being discussed,” the Minister said.Of recent, there have been reports of an apparent tug-o-war within the coalition over the sugar industry, which is now under the control of a Special Purpose Unit (SPU) that was created under the National Industrial and Commercial InvestmentsAgriculture Minister Noel HolderLimited (NICIL) for the divestment process.In fact, reports had surfaced about disagreements allegedly between Ministers from the two coalition parties regarding the chairmanship and members of the GuySuCo Board.It was reported early in March that Finance Minister Winston Jordan had allegedly proposed for Head of SPU, Colvin Heath-London, to be the Chairman of the new Board after the previous body had expired on February 14. The purported proposal was reportedly not accepted by the other Cabinet members.However, Minister Jordan had subsequently issued a statement denying making such a suggestion.Meanwhile, about two weeks later, NICIL published the names of the new Board, naming Heath-London as Chairman while the other members included Fritz McLean, Komal Singh, Verna Adrian, Vishnu Panday, Annette Arjoon, Arianne Mc Lean, Roshan Khan Jr and George Jervis, with two other names to be added to the 11-member body. A full-page ad had detailed that the new Board was approved by Cabinet on February 26, 2018.However, Minister of State Joseph Harmon had said the same day that there wereMinster of State Joseph Harmonsome issues with regard to the timing of the ad and Cabinet was reviewing the matter.Addressing the issue, Minister Holder brushed aside reports of an apparent power struggle within the Cabinet, saying his Ministry was constitutionally responsible for the sugar industry.“The Corporation is totally and solely owned by the Government of Guyana. The Minister of Agriculture answers to Parliament for what happens in GuySuCo. I am accountable to this nation for its activities; therefore, the Minister of Agriculture should have responsibility for GuySuCo. Therefore, the Minister of Agriculture will appoint the Board of GuySuCo,” Holder posited.Furthermore, the Agriculture Minister went on to outline that NICIL was a creature of the Government and thus carried out instructions from the executive.“NICIL is a holding company. It holds the shares for GuySuCo; it holds the shares for Guyoil; it holds the shares perhaps for GPL; it’s a holding company. It is not a government and, therefore, it carries out instructions of the Government… Perhaps someone didn’t tell NICIL their role,” Holder noted.And while acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GuySuCo, Paul Bhim has said that the Corporation is still operating without a Board and doing so effectively, there have been numerous calls for Government to move swiftly move to appoint a new Board, especially in light of the recent downsizing of the industry.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has called for the swift naming of a Board evenFinance Minister Winston Jordanand has questioned how the $30 billion sourced for the Corporation’s revitalisation is being spent. He also bemoaned Government’s recent $50 billion loan hike ceiling saying that not only was it now tied to GuySuCo’s $30 billion but that it signals future increased borrowings and those plans are troubling.Signalling intense scrutiny of the $30 billion bond taken for GuySuCo, Jagdeo said that the Corporation needs an accountability body more so now given the significant revenues borrowed.“We heard they collected an advance, we don’t know how it is being spent, we don’t know what assets are being used to collateralise it, we don’t know what the backroom negotiations were so we have huge problems with this one,” he said.“They have not defined even for the future how they intend to spend it, in fact there is no Board at GuySuCo up to now. I don’t know who is borrowing all that money for GuySuCo who is on what decision and there is no Board,” he added.last_img read more

No excuses for Man Utd failure -Mkhitaryan

first_img0Shares0000Mkhitaryan has been reunited with former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal after the Gabon international joined the Gunners in a £55million deal.LONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 10 – Henrikh Mkhitaryan says he only has himself to blame for his failure to make the grade at Manchester United.After just 18 months at Old Trafford, Mkhitaryan brought the curtain down on his United career in the January transfer window after joining Arsenal in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez. The 29-year-old had become a fringe figure under Jose Mourinho after making a promising start to his United career last season.But the midfielder is not making any excuses over why he didn’t enjoy more success at United.“I don’t want to blame anyone. I am starting a new chapter in my life, in my football career and I am very happy to be here,” he said.“I will be pleased to achieve more than I have done in Manchester, of course. I don’t have anything to prove to anyone. I just have to enjoy myself, do my best and at the end I will see where I can reach.”Mkhitaryan has been reunited with former Borussia Dortmund team-mate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal after the Gabon international joined the Gunners in a £55million deal.“I think it could only be in a dream that we could join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that,” added Mkhitaryan.“I have known him very well, he is one of my best friends and the best team-mate I have ever had. I am very happy to have him here and I think all the fans are happy to see him in an Arsenal shirt.“What can I say? I love playing with him. I can understand him from one step and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Report: More state high school grads need to go to college

first_imgCalifornia beats the national average for college students with a degree but needs to get more high school graduates to aspire to higher education in the first place, according to a recent report. The National Center for Higher Education Management Systems and Jobs for the Future for Making Opportunity Affordable recently released a report on college access and success in the nation. The report “Adding It Up: State Challenges for Increasing College Access and Success” outlines, state by state, the percentage of residents with a college degree, and the changing demographic challenges that each state faces for the future. According to the report, in California, 38.9 percent of adults ages 25-64 have a college degree compared to 37.4 percent in the nation. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsCalifornia is ranked near the bottom in the percentage of recent high school graduates moving on to college. According to the report, in 10 states, fewer than half of high school graduates enroll in postsecondary education within one year of graduating. California is one of the bottom five states with a 43.7 percent college continuation rate, compared to the national average of 55.5 percent. But once a student decides to attend college, the possibility of attaining a four-year degree is higher in California. According to Azusa Pacific University’s public relations manager, Allison Oster, the school works with students to help them achieve their goal once they are enrolled. APU was recognized earlier this year as one of the top 52 colleges in the country for outstanding first-year experience by U.S. News. Oster said the school’s Beginnings program is instrumental, providing first-year students with the resources they need to continue their college education and attain a degree. The school had a one percent increase in freshman retention in the 2006-07 school year compared to the previous year. The report projects that higher education in most states can improve degree production. There are currently only eight states on track to reach the level of educational attainment needed by 2025 to compete with the best-performing nations and meet work force demands, the report states. According to the report, California is one of the top five states to hand out four-year degrees, with an average of 25 degrees per every 100 full-time students enrolled. Washington is the top state with 26 degrees per 100 full-time students enrolled. Pasadena City College saw a slight increase in degrees awarded to students ages 25-29 and a slight decrease in students ages 30-34, said Juan Gutierrez, director of public relations. Gutierrez also said there was an increase in certificates awarded to students ages 30-34, and a steady rate awarded to students ages 25-29. “(The difference) to me seems to be because students in the 30 to 34 age group usually just want to come in and earn a certificate to help them in their current career, while students in the 25 to 29 age group want a degree to start a career,” said Gutierrez. Rio Hondo Community College in Whittier has seen a steady increase in the number of associate’s degrees awarded from 2005 to 2007, according to Ann Turner, a spokeswoman for the college. The APU Institutional Research Web site shows an increase of 71 undergraduate degrees awarded in the 2006-07 school year compared to the 2005-06 school year. That number may not be enough to help the state’s overall higher educational attainment rate. The report estimates, with the growing population and the majority in low-income and minorities group, by 2025, California may fall short of the college-educated population needed to meet work force demands and compete with better performing nations.

BABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: HOW TO PROTECT YOUR BABY THIS SUMMER

first_imgBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: Hi everyone. For those of you who are new to my column, I’m Áine. I’m 26, Donegal born and bred and I have been living in London for the past 4 years. I’m a first time mum to my 10 month old daughter Ava.Summer is finally here and fingers crossed this glorious weather sticks around for another while. I’ve been doing some research recently on protecting Ava from the sun as we’re off on holiday in a few months. So, I thought I’d share my findings with you all.Whether you too are off on a sunny holiday abroad or sticking closer to home, hopefully some of these tips might help you too.Keep them in the shade: You may already know this but baby’s temperature regulating systems aren’t fully developed. Because of this, they’re not as efficient as adults in keeping cool. Keeping them in the shade is important to prevent overheating. This is sometimes easier said than done. Especially when your little one becomes more mobile. Pram umbrellas and pop-up beach shelters are a great way of achieving this. Keep in mind that the sun is at its highest and hottest between 11am and 3pm. Maybe plan some indoor activities or lunch during these times.Dress them appropriately:As if we needed an excuse to buy more clothes! Loose, lightweight clothes are considered the best option. Choose cotton clothing as they absorb perspiration better than synthetic fabrics. Wearing light colours will reflect the heat which in turn will help prevent your little one from overheating.Babies scalps are very easily burnt so sun hats are a must. If possible, try and buy one with a wide rim to keep their little faces covered. It is an absolute mission getting Ava to keep a hat on. Sunhats with ties are great if this is a problem for you too.If you’re thinking of taking your baby to the beach or pool, UV swimwear are recommended. We’ve opted for some short, lightweight UV wetsuits from Next to give Ava some extra coverage.Sun Cream: Did you know that sunblock and sunscreen were two different thing? This was news to me.Sunscreen is one of the more commonly used type of sun protectant. It filters, or, as the name suggests, screens the suns UV rays keeping most rays out but letting some in. On the other hand, sunblock physically reflects the sun rays from the skin, blocking the rays completely.Sunblock is the safest option for your baby.  There are a few points to take on-board when choosing your sun cream. Make sure it is specifically for baby’s with a SPF no lower than 30. It should block both UVA and UVB rays. A water proof sunblock may be more beneficial especially if you’re are planning on beach or pool visits. Sunblock should be applied liberally every two hours to all areas of skin exposed to the sun. The neck, ears, backs of knees and armpits are the mostly commonly forgotten area’s so don’t forget these!If your baby’s skin is very sensitive it might be worth spending a little bit extra on a good brand. We went for the Soltan baby sun cream from Boots and thankfully it has not caused any irritation to Ava’s sensitive skin. Hydration: A flushed face, skin that’s warm to the touch, restlessness and rapid breathing are some signs of dehydration. Babies over 6 months can start drinking water to help stay hydrated. However, if your baby is younger than this give extra breast milk or formula to replace any lost fluids. If you’re struggling to get your little one to drink more fluids, ice cubes, homemade fruit ice lollies and fruits like watermelon are a fun way of increasing their water intake on those hotter days.Ava perfecting her summer pose.In the unfortunate event that your little one gets sunburn, here’s some tips on what to do:Call your GP or allocated health visitor or nurse for advice.Give them plenty of fluids.Soothe the sunburned area. Soak a clean flannel or muslin square in cool water, wring it out, and gently place it on the sunburned area for 10 to 15 minutes a few times a day.Apply a water-based moisturising lotion, aloe vera gel or calamine lotion to relieve itching, which can happen when the burn starts to peel.Monitor the burn. If it gets worse seek more medical attention.Have a lovely Saturday and thanks for reading,Áine xBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: HOW TO PROTECT YOUR BABY THIS SUMMER was last modified: June 3rd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Baby Steps with AinecolumnFeaturesnewsProtectsummerTipslast_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: DO WOMEN PREFER MEN WITH BIG BELLIES

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: A new survey revealed surprising results: 75% of women prefer men with a big belly and love handles over six-pack abs.Eh, what??Did I miss something? Has my Facebook newsfeed not been filled with memes of fitness models with catchy slogans? Slogans that should be motivating me to ‘CRUSH MY WORKOUT’, always be in ‘BEAST MODE’ at the gym, and lest not forget to ‘ALWAYS SQUAT’, because we’ve got to get ‘DAT ASS’ don’t we?Well maybe men don’t, but it flashed up somewhere on Facebook.So what’s going on?Has there been a flip in the space time continuum? Or do women really prefer men with a bit more to hold onto?Being 5 months into a muscle gaining phase, I am now theowner of a 4 pack with a slight bit of cushioning on the sides.So I guess I have the best of both worlds…….That’s enough about me.Let’s get down to the finer details. Why is it that the women in this survey, conducted to mark the release of comedy Bad Neighbours on DVD, prefer their men with a bit of a belly?Almost all of the women, 96%, said they automatically assume a guy with a belly has a better personality than a man with a tight body.Now we are getting down to it.It seems that the women on the survey assumed that men with big bellies are like John Candy, Kevin James or Jonah Hill. Sweet, funny, kind of awkward, but will treat you like a goddess and will always look after your every need, because that’s what they do in the movies.Whereas they naturally assumed that men with 6 packs would be like a cardboard cut-out of Ryan Gosling.He’s nice to look at, but nothing much in the way of conversation.What else was there that was putting women off the prospect of having a ‘Bronzed Adonis’ as a partner?Nearly as many as 91% of the women surveyed said men in perfect shape prioritize spending time in the gym over spending time with their partner.Well, I don’t think we can argue with this point guys, can we?I have been known to go to the gym for ‘an hour’ only to havea search and rescue team trying to locate me.But, the problem can’t be just a lack of personality and prioritizing the gym over women, can it?80% of the women surveyed said that guys with great abs are unlikely to be able to relax and have fun, being too obsessed with what they eat.This is ridiculous… (I nearly spat out my protein shake.)Let me set the record straight on this one.Bringing your own food to a wedding is NOT, I repeat NOT obsessing about food…….DON’T JUDGE ME, there was a good reason, honest. (Plus I ate it in the car… )So, what is it?Why do women seem to put down the guys with the 6 pack abs?74% of those surveyed said a man with a great body makes them feel self-conscious about their own bodies.This could be a valid reason, but what you have to remember ladies is this;If a guy wants to be with you and is REALLY into you, he will appreciate your body and will let you know that he does.If he doesn’t or if he makes you insecure about it, the next time you both are out for a drive, do yourself a favour and reach over and press the ejector seat button.What it really comes down to is this.You prefer what you prefer.All the memes, motivational speeches and you tube videos won’t change your mind on what you are attracted to and neither they should.You like what you like. No survey should change your mind.#TrainSmartFor further information on how to get a man with a 6 packcontact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Personal-Training-and-Performance/120518884715118* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: DO WOMEN PREFER MEN WITH BIG BELLIES was last modified: September 15th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:big belliesemmet rusheFatfitness columnMenWomenlast_img read more
