Youth are still waiting for APNU/AFC promised change – TUF leader

first_imgLeader of the The United Force (TUF) Marissa Nadir said the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU/AFC) administration has so far failed the electorate, particularly youths, whose vote in the last General and Regional Elections were driven by a hope for change.TUF leader Marissa NadirIn an interview with Guyana Times on Thursday, Nadir, an attorney said the loud talk of providing job opportunities were simply used to attract the attention and interest of the masses, since up until now, there is no clear view of the promised jobs for young people.She said the TUF which has been off the political grid following the May 11, 2015 General and Regional Elections, has been very active at the grassroots level, listening and offering counsel to those she said are the “frustrated”.“Having had the political exposure that I have had from a young age, I believe and I still believe that there were many persons who played on young people’s thirst and quest for change”, Nadir told Guyana Times.She said while the party would admit that the country has progressed from the situation of the 1980s and early 1990s, it has found that young persons, although they are educated and are professionals, still cannot find jobs. This she said casts them into a state of depression.“They are very frustrated and many persons fell into a trap of wanting a change, they were promised a change and they were promised betterment and now they are saying that they were better off in the previous regime. Many persons are now saying that we don’t care, we are not going to vote in the next election because both of them are the same and at the end of the day we still have to work, still have to find jobs , still have to figure out how we are going to survive”, the party leader told Guyana Times.She said all this was garnered from the party’s one-on-one connection with communities.“I can tell you, again, because of our interaction, our people are getting very frustrated and are getting in a state of depression and from that, you get a lot of other social ills”, she posited.Reflecting on the National Elections, Nadir recalled that she was the youngest and only female candidate at the forefront of the polls. She said that the persons who really held the deciding votes were basically the youths of Guyana, but yet there is no fulfilment to the promises made to them by the current administration.UG LoansShe also zoned in on the issue of loans repayment at the University of Guyana, noting that the absence of jobs should be considered before government even move in this direction.“It’s not like we don’t want to pay, we do want to pay, but where are we going to get the jobs from and even when we get the jobs we have to help out at home, or help my younger brother or sister has to go to school”, Nadir said, speaking on behalf of studentsReversal of promisesMeanwhile, speaking about government’s performance so far, Nadir said her party is still waiting to see the 100 days plan implemented.“We are seeing things that were promised being done in the reverse, like the increase of certain taxes, and it is more difficult for some businesses to get taken off and we get an entire Ministry of Business up and running. We see a waste of public funds”.According to her, it is time for government to stop focusing on an agenda of what seems to be a “witch-hunt” with the establishment of several inquiries into agencies, and begin taking care of the country.“Our economy is suffering and our people are suffering and that is of utmost importance. They have over a year, suck it up and move on. We need to move on as a nation and the economic development of the Country”, she said.last_img read more

2 women plead not guilty to killing men for insurance

first_imgFederal authorities arrested the two women in May and charged them with mail fraud in connection with the insurance scheme while the murder investigation progressed. The fraud charges were dropped when the state murder charges were filed. When the women were arrested, Golay had her hair in a high bouffant, and it appeared that way again in her first court appearance. Since then, her hair has fallen and appears frizzy and disheveled.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsAuthorities allege that Golay and Rutterschmidt befriended the two transients, persuaded the men to sign them on to their life insurance policies and then collected some $2.3 million after running them over in secluded alleys. The murder charges carry special allegations that could make the women eligible for the death penalty if convicted. Prosecutors have not decided whether to pursue the death penalty. Rutterschmidt’s attorney, Michael Sklar, challenged the legality of conspiracy charges against his client, but Bianco ruled that the charges could stand. Sklar also said he had not yet received evidence from the state. Bianco ordered the District Attorney’s Office to provide Sklar with police reports and other information by Sept. 22. Bianco also scheduled an Oct. 5 appearance, when a date for preliminary hearings will be set. Outside the courthouse, Golay’s lawyer, Roger Jon Diamond, explained his client’s unusual request for makeup and other personal items. “Any lady would want to be well-groomed to make an appearance in court,” he said. “If she looks haggard and not well-groomed and she appears in the press, then a jury pool would be affected by that.” A pair of women in their 70s pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that they murdered two transient men in hit-and-run crashes so they could collect on the victims’ life insurance policies. Helen Golay, 75, and Hungarian-born Olga Rutterschmidt, 73, were being held without bail. Each woman faces two counts of murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder for financial gain in the deaths of Paul Vados, 73, a Hungarian native, in November 1999, and Kenneth McDavid, 51, in June 2005. At a hearing Wednesday, Superior Court Commissioner James Bianco denied Golay’s request to use makeup, get tweezers to pluck her eyebrows, wear her own clothes and be awakened no later than 7 a.m. on court days. “I certainly understand the difficulties of confinement,” but sheriff’s deputies need time to bring her from her Lynwood jail to the downtown Los Angles courtroom, Bianco said. last_img read more
