first_imgMembers of the Liberian Senate went into one of their longest executive sessions Thursday,  January 23, following the reading of a communication from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.She was responding to that august body’s letter to her, concerning a ‘siege’ at the Capitol Building, laid last September by the Liberia National Police, under the reported authorization of Police Director, Christian Clarence Massaquoi.The President’s communication dated January 20, 2014 reads: “Dear Mr. President Pro Tempore, I refer to a communication sent under the signature of J. Nanborlor F. Singbeh of the Senate, by which he brought to my attention…action by the Liberian National Police Director Honorable Christian Massaquoi, which amounted to a siege of the Capitol Building when the Senate was in plenary session.I have written Director Massaquoi a strong letter of reprimand…suspending him or two days to allow him time to write a letter of apology for personal presentation at a plenary sitting of the Senate. Sincerely, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of Liberia…”Immediately following the reading of the communication, a motion was proffered for an executive session that was unanimously agreed on for the sole purpose of deliberating the President’s two-paragraph letter.From 11a.m. until 4 p.m., members of that Upper House of the Legislature remained behind closed doors while members of the Legislative Press Corps hung about the Capitol Building’s corridors, hoping in vain for news on what was being decided within.It may be recalled that on the last day sitting of the 2nd Session of the 53rd Senate, a decision was unanimously taken by plenary, asking President Sirleaf to disrobe Police Director Massaquoi, for deploying over 200 armed-police on the grounds of the Legislature on September 12, 2013, while that body was conducting normal legislative functions.The deployment of the police came after the Senate had invited Director Massaquoi to appear before the plenary and answer a complaint that he insulted a member of the Senate. Here is a portion of the Senate’s September 13, 2013 decision as read by Senator H. Dan Morias: “It will please you to note, ladies and gentlemen of the Liberian Senate and those in the gallery that this act… took place at the time the Liberian Senate, the Honorable House of Representatives, and the Vice President of the Republic of Liberia were in the Capitol Building, carrying out their official national responsibilities.”This act, on the part of Director Massaquoi—holding ‘hostage’ the first branch of Government, is tantamount to mutiny. This abuse and misuse of armed Liberia National Police must be stopped.”Senator Morias concluded: “The Liberian Senate therefore, calls on the President of Liberia, her Excellency Mrs. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to deal with said mutiny by the LNP, against a democratically elected Legislature. They asked that Director Massaquoi be immediately disrobed and forwarded to the Ministry of Justice.”But what political commentators termed a legislative u-turn, came about when that august body a few days later clarified what the Senate had instead requested President Sirleaf to take due note of the Director’s behavior and take appropriate action to serve as deterrent against the recurrence of a similar act.Quoting two paragraphs of the official communication sent President Sirleaf, Grand Gedeh County Senator Isaac Nyenabo, during a radio talk-show in Monrovia read thus: “In view of the above, Madam President, and consistent with Article 3 of the Liberian Constitution, the Senate wishes to bring this matter to your attention and respectfully request that your Excellency takes due note as well as appropriate action against this kind of conduct…to prevent misunderstanding and confusion in and among functionaries of Government.Acting in a plenary session, the Senate reiterates its confidence and abiding faith in your leadership and therefore places the entire matter in your hands with the hope that you, as the leader of this nation, will ensure that discipline is maintained within governance process.”Every attempt by journalist to get information on what obtained during the executive session failed; as of 6 p.m. Senators were seen still briskly moving from one office to another, apparently in search of common-ground.Meanwhile, all other agenda items slated for deliberations Thursday were suspended. That included a report from the Committee on Banking and Currency, relative to the exchange rate between the United States and Liberian Dollars.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgGuyana’s first Amerindian Affairs Minister, Vibert DeSouza, passed away at his home on Saturday and ever since the announcement there has been an outpour of tributes and condolences.Vibert DeSouzaDeSouza served as the Amerindian Affairs Minister under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Government in 1992. He was the first Minister to be assigned to that portfolio.Prior to being appointed as a Government Minister, DeSouza served as Local Government and Regional Development Minister and as an entrepreneur.He also worked at the Hand in Hand Insurance Company; as a cultural officer attached to the Agricultural & General Workers Union and a technician clerk, at the St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital.Long-standing member of the PPP/C and former Government Minister Clement Rohee paid tribute to DeSouza, saying that the former Minister was a people’s cultural icon.“While many today were either not born as yet, in their infancy or at school, Vibert had already started out his political career as a cultural activist of the PPP/C,” he explained.According to Rohee, DeSouza was encouraged by founding leader of the PPP/C the late former President Cheddi Jagan to draw closer to the party to facilitate his ideological upbringing.“Harry Persaud Nokta who served for a number of years as party organiser in the NWD (North West District) helped nurture Vibert and his two brother Marco and Deon,” he recalled.Rohee said not only was his ability as a composer of revolutionary songs and guitar music reflecting the struggles of the Guyanese people held in high esteem, but he soon rose to prominence in the ranks of the PPP and the youth arm, Progressive Youth Organisation (PYO).The former Minister composed the battle songs for the PYO ‘Forward with the PYO’ and for the WPO ‘Women Unite, Stand Up and Fight,’ He also composed the battle song of the sugar workers’ union ‘GAWU -The Union Makes Us Strong.’ His other musical compositions are ‘Forward Ever Backward Never,’ ‘Get on Board’ and many other people-centered songs.Desouza has also served as a member of several organisations.

first_imgUS Ambassador to Guyana Sarah-Ann LynchUS Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch has called for the Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Development Association to ensure the success of its sovereign wealth fund known as the Natural Resource Fund (NRF) as Guyana prepares for first oil in 2020.Ambassador Lynch issued the call at the Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Development Association’s 87th annual luncheon on Wednesday in New Amsterdam, Berbice.Ambassador Lynch noted that the Chamber of Commerce needed to embrace its role in engaging with stakeholders and lobbying for expertise as well as information sharing and transparency as Guyana developed its lucrative petroleum industry.She says the Chamber can also play a role in ensuring that the NRF is properly managed and that Guyanese benefit significantly.“As you are aware, Guyana recently accomplished a major milestone of its own, by establishing the Natural Resource Fund , this is also known as a sovereign wealth fund which was set up to invest revenues from oil and gas and other natural resources, in order to protect and boost the national economy,” the Ambassador said.She added that if implemented immediately and efficiently, it should provide Guyana with the opportunity to invest in long-term future as well as today’s infrastructure, health, education, security and even agriculture.“I must congratulate the people of Guyana for taking this important step and doing so before first oil production and before all profits begin rolling in next year.”Worldwide, it is estimated that US$2 trillion to US$3 trillion are under the control of sovereign wealth funds.“Even though management of the wealth fund is primarily a public sector responsibility, its operation on success is heavily dependent on the productive sector partnering in administration and oversight of the plan,” the diplomat highlighted.She noted that studies have shown that the most effective sovereign wealth funds are independent, transparent, inviolable and nonpartisan.“I keep telling people that this is an exciting time to be in Guyana; it’s also a critical time for Guyana’s future. That future starts now and I look forward to the Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Development Association and other Private Sector agents playing a vibrant role in modelling it by creating a robust framework in implement the Fund and manage the risk associated with it,” the Ambassador added.Moreover, Regional Chairman David Armogan called on businesses to take advantage of opportunities in the sector.“We have seen in our Region that certain parts of the sugar industry were closed. The rice industry has not been doing so well. Today, we are seeing the repercussions of that. We have seen the businesses have suffered some form of decline in sales hence affecting your ability to employ persons,” Armogan said.The Chairman acknowledged that times have changed, adding that difficult circumstances called for new approaches.“We have to be innovative in our ways and utilise this difficult period to come up with new challenges and new projects. Already we are seeing companies from abroad coming here to pick up the challenges that we ourselves should be taking up.”Meanwhile, Chamber President Errol Azar told the gathering that persons throughout the region have been feeling the harsh reality of the closure of the sugar estates in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).In December 2017, Government closed both the Rose Hall and Skeldon Sugar Estates. However, despite that, Azar said there was some good news and indicated it was not just good news for the business community.He explained that Government making arrangements to sell the Rose Hall and Skeldon Sugar Estates meant there was interest from investors.“They are finalising the agreement… one of the stipulations is that sugar must be maintained at the estate so the people will be able to get back their jobs.”The Chamber President also spoke about plans to develop a deepwater harbour in Region Six and also plans to have the Berbice Mining Enterprise Factory at Everton resuscitated as a mining company has already purchased the facility and is making arrangements to have it operational soon.last_img read more

first_imgAt least 11 tornadoes were reported throughout western Nebraska, destroying or damaging three homes and at least 10 miles of power lines. Two twisters touched down in far northwest Kansas, severely damaging three homes, authorities said. In Oklahoma, Vance and Barbra Woodbury were killed when the storm blew apart their home near the Panhandle community of Elmwood. “We set off the tornado sirens, but they live too far out to hear them,” said Dixie Parker, Beaver County’s emergency management director. “The house was just flattened, the out buildings are gone. All that’s left is debris.” Warning sirens went off in Oklahoma City on Thursday afternoon, but authorities could not immediately confirm whether a tornado had touched down. There were reports of minor damage but no injuries. Tornadoes in the Texas Panhandle uprooted trees, overturned trucks and injured at least three people. The region also got baseball-size hail. Monte Ford, 53, was killed near Amarillo when he was thrown about 15 feet from his oilfield trailer, which was rolled by the wind. The Colorado tornado killed dozens of cattle and injured others so severely they have to be shot. The same storm system dumped snow on Wyoming, causing highway pileups and closing large portions of three interstates.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img0Shares0000Staying alive: Mario Vrancic (right) scored the opening goal as bottom-of-the-table Norwich held Tottenham © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyNORWICH, United Kingdom, Dec 28 – Jose Mourinho bemoaned Tottenham’s inability to keep clean sheets after twice having to come from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw at bottom-of-the-table Norwich.Slack Spurs defending allowed Mario Vrancic to open the scoring and only a VAR review to harshly rule out Teemu Pukki’s goal prevented Mourinho’s men trailing 2-0 at half-time. Even once the visitors had regained a foothold in the game via Christian Eriksen’s free-kick, they shot themselves in the foot at the back once more as Serge Aurier’s calamitous own goal restored Norwich’s lead.Harry Kane’s penalty eight minutes from time ensured Spurs did not slump to a third defeat in seven games, but they failed to take the chance to leapfrog Chelsea into the top four.The area of the field with work to do for Mourinho remains obvious and his side have kept just one clean sheet in 10 games since he took over.Tottenham’s season is being chronicled as an Amazon documentary and Mourinho believes the focus of that show should be on his side’s defending.“I think if Amazon wants to do episodes, they will have for sure one episode about our defensive mistakes and the goals that we concede,” he told Sky Sports.“We conceded two very bad goals, the first and the one that was offside but two very bad goals.“Second half I think we were very, very good with the ball; we create, dominate with play but again the goal (conceded) is a very bad one.“To score two goals away from home, you have to win. You cannot concede as many goals as we do, but our defensive mistakes are match after match.”Tottenham could have been out of sight inside the first 15 minutes as Dele Alli fired wastefully over before Kane was denied by a fine save from Tim Krul when one-on-one.At the other end, Vrancic could not believe his luck as Toby Alderweireld stood off and allowed him to close in on goal before firing low past Paulo Gazzaniga to open the scoring 18 minutes in.Only VAR prevented Tottenham falling further behind before the break as Jan Vertonghen allowed Pukki to control Vrancic’s ball over the top and the Finn finished clinically.However, Pukki’s joy was short-lived as he was harshly adjudged to be offside after a VAR review.“The disallowed goal was tough to take,” said Norwich manager Daniel Farke. “It’s not in the sense of the game.”Mourinho showed his displeasure with Spurs’ first 45 minutes by making two half-time substitutions and changing his system as Lucas Moura and Davinson Sanchez replaced Juan Foyth and Vertonghen.The Portuguese got the upturn in performance he desired as the visitors were level 10 minutes into the second half after Jamal Lewis handled on the edge of his own area to prevent Kane a clear sight of goal.Great Dane: Christian Eriksen’s free-kick equalised for Tottenham at Norwich © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyEriksen has been a peripheral figure both under Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino earlier in the season due to his contractual standoff with the club that will most likely see the Dane leave on a free transfer in the summer.But he produced a timely reminder of his quality by curling the resulting free-kick into the top corner.Moments later, the ball was in the Norwich net again but this time the offside flag went in the hosts’ favour as Alli’s classy finish was ruled out.Just as Tottenham seemed to have taken control, the tide turned again in the other direction as Norwich retook the lead in comical fashion.Aurier turned the ball into his own net after the ball ricocheted into his path from Alderweireld’s tackle on Pukki.Spurs laid seige towards the Norwich goal in the final quarter and not for the first time this season Farke’s men were unable to see the game out.Kane was wiped out by Zimmermann as he cut inside and the England captain picked himself up to dispatch the resulting penalty.0Shares0000(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
