Some aggrieved farmers, who are women, have blamed the Johnsonville Township Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Bettie, for allegedly engaging into the sale of wetlands meant for farming purposes in the township.The women calling themselves, “Johnsonville Women Farmers’ Cooperative, made the disclosure recently to the Daily Observer newspaper in Paynesville.The spokesperson for the group, Ethel Williams, told this paper that about 7 hectares of farm land in Mount Barclay is being encroached upon.According to her, Commissioner Bettie is behind the sale of the wet land.“A relative of the commissioner is found selling the land for which he Bettie is aware. We have called his attention to this problem but to no avail,” she said.Madam William said that the land in question was given to them by the former commissioner of the township for farming activities.“Swamplands are public land and strictly intended for agricultural purposes. In 2009, we appealed for the land from the former commissioner and he allowed us to use it,” she said.“Unfortunately, today this particular land is being sold to some individuals, who have planted cornerstones on portions of the land. These people have constantly threatened the farmers and are backfilling the land,” she added.She further stated that this was posing a serious problem for them as many of the members of the farming organization were widows, who survived through farming, adding that such condition was a threat to food security. When contacted, Commissioner Bettie denied the allegation as false and misleading. He said though he is aware of some people in his township engaging in the unscrupulous sale of land but was something that could not control.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
President David Granger…urges law enforcement to locate, transport him back Days before the ruling on a drug trafficking charge against him, Barry Dataram had fled the jurisdiction, a situation President David Granger believes would not have existed had the local justice system been more alert.During the taping of this week’s “The Public Interest” programme on Thursday, the Head of State posited that while he would not lay blame at the feet of any agency or individual, Dataram’s flight from Guyana was something which could have been avoided.“Mr Dataram is a person of interest. He is a well-known character in Guyana, and I would expect that even though the judicial branch is separate, there should be a greater level of alertness on the part of the magistracy, in the judiciary, in matters like this and I don’t regard it as a failing on the part of law enforcement agencies, but it is definitely an error which ought to have been avoided,” he told reporters when prompted to comment on the matter.Nevertheless, President Granger is calling on local law enforcement agencies to work with their counterparts in neighbouring countries and use every possible legitimate avenue available to them to locate the convicted drug lord and have him transported back to Guyana.“The danger posed in having somebody who is now a convict out there, out of the jurisdiction is going to be harmful to our national interest, so I would urge the law enforcement agencies to alert their counterparts in neighbouring states… I would urge all law enforcement agencies to use every legitimate measure to bring him back into this jurisdiction so that he can serve his sentence,” the President stated.Furthermore, the President told reporters on the weekly programme that information suggested that Dataram might have absconded using a passport not issued by the Government of Guyana.“Even though Mr Dataram might have a foreign passport, it might be a forged passport… my information is that he is not travelling on a Guyanese passport. So, after his disappearance, and we weren’t aware of his disappearance, we continued to work with our partners in the Caribbean to bring him to justice. If he is in Suriname as is suspected, the Commissioner of Police has been instructed to try to ascertain his whereabouts in neighbouring countries, but he is not using a Guyana passport – that much we know,” the Head of State further revealed.Dataram and his reputed wife, Anjanie Boodnarine, along with two others, Komal Charran and Trevor Gouveia, were charged jointly with the possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.However, days before the court’s ruling, Dataram and his spouse, who was previously granted High Court bail, fled the country. After the couple failed to attend court on the previous scheduled days of sentencing (September 20 and September 23, 2016), the presiding Magistrate Judy Lactchman issued arrest warrants for them and noted that she would proceed with her ruling in their absence.As such, on Tuesday last, Dataram was sentenced to 60 months in jail and a fine of $164.2 million after he was found guilty in absentia of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.Meanwhile, his three co-accused, including his reputed wife, were all freed of the joint charge, which stated that on April 16, 2015, at Fourth Avenue, Diamond, East Bank Demerara, they had 60.840 kilograms of cocaine in their possession for the purpose of trafficking.

0Shares0000USM Alger players line up before a previous match. PHOTO/CAF OnlineNAIROBI, Kenya, May 14- Algerian side USM Alger arrived in Nairobi early Monday morning ahead of Wednesday’s CAF Confederation Cup Group D tie against record Kenyan Champions Gor Mahia at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani.Alger are staying at a high end hotel in the outskirts of Nairobi and are expected to have their first training session at the highly secured Kenya School of Monetary Studies before having a feel of the Kasarani pitch on Tuesday evening.

Their support against Hull was massive and we would want to create the same atmosphere against USM Alger,” Gor Mahia CEO Lordvick Aduda said.He added; “The match being at night, we want to assure our fans that security will be of high priority and they should come with no fear of anything whatsoever.”USM lead Group D with three points after their opening day 4-0 thrashing of Tanzanian side Young Africans with Gor second with a point after their opening day 1-1 draw away to Rayon Sport in Rwanda.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)

Middlesbrough have announced the appointment of Garry Monk as their new manager.The 38-year-old former Swansea and Leeds boss will be officially unveiled at a press conference on Monday after agreeing to take over as Aitor Karanka’s replacement.Boro are yet to confirm the length of Monk’s contract, while the wording of their announcement – that he is “manager” rather than “head coach”, as Karanka was – may well be significant.Monk was one of a series of potential candidates to whom chairman Steve Gibson spoke, including Karanka’s assistant Steve Agnew, who took charge for the final 11 games of last season, before making his choice.He was available after parting company with Leeds last month after guiding the Elland Road club to the fringes of the Championship play-offs, only for the two parties to fail to reach agreement over an extension.Monk’s remit will be to guide Boro into the Premier League after their first season back in the top flight ended in a heart-breaking relegation following a seven-year quest to return to the promised land.Karanka left the Riverside Stadium in March with Boro deep in relegation trouble, and Agnew was handed the task of halting an alarming slide.However, he was unable to do so and, in the process, any chance of landing the job on a permanent basis dissipated.Monk will at least have the core of the squad which won promotion two seasons ago at his disposal, and with Gibson having vowed to “smash” the Championship this time around, there could be money to spend too.However, there will also be a clear-out to be managed – Victor Valdes and Brad Guzan have already left, while loan signings Calum Chambers and Alvaro Negredo have returned to their parent clubs – with several players having spoken openly of dressing room unrest in the wake of relegation. 1 Garry Monk is the new Middlesbrough boss
