Is the GDF harbouring ‘ticking time bombs’?

first_imgDear Editor,My respect to the bereaved of the late Ms Reona Payne, who was gruesomely gunned down in public, and I would also like to include the kids of the accused, Captain Orwain Sandy; I am sorry that you are feeling the consequences.I dare say that the deceased and accused were two selfish and irresponsible humans, playing Russian roulette and not thinking of the damages that the kids from both sides will encounter.I have been following the press reports and social media forums, and though I am no expert on matters relating to the Guyana Defence Force, I am left to wonder about quite a lot.Doesn’t the GDF offer the service of ‘Psychological Evaluation’ of its officers/ranks?Didn’t anyone within the GDF ever see signals or signs of abnormal behaviour from Cpt. O. Sandy?Even if it is accurate that the accused was seeing/visiting private doctors for the past two years because of mental issues, did the GDF know of his condition?If they did, why was Cpt. O. Sandy still in possession of his firearm, knowing he was a threat to the general public?Did the GDF/State fail Cpt. O. Sandy and other ranks currently serving by not providing the necessary services for their personal safety and that of the general public?I am now left thinking that the Guyana Defence Force is filled with mentally dysfunctional and ‘ticking time bomb’ personnel.Where do we go from here, and how do we fix the situation?Yours faithfully,T.

AEL, Tearfund Graduate 125 Ebola Survivors

first_imgThe Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) in collaboration with Tearfund, yesterday graduated 125 Ebola survivors in the art of soap making. At the closing exercise at the New Life Bible Church in St. Francis Community in Jacob Town, which included activities such as drama, singings and recitation of poems, some of the graduates walked away with several gifts.The Director of Banking at the Central Bank of Liberia, Richard Walker, who served as the guest speaker, described the training as a milestone that will help provide livelihoods for the beneficiaries and their families.“I want to appreciate you for taking advantage of this training opportunity to improve yourselves and become self sufficient,” Mr. Walker said.He admonished the graduates to take advantage of the training opportunity to explore other avenues that would help them create jobs for themselves and others.In remarks, Tearfund Country Representative, Tizazu Adamu, expressed appreciation for the hosting of such a training aimed at supporting Ebola survivors as part of the Association’s recovery initiatives.“Every long journey starts with a single step, and now that you have started the process we believe that you have acquired great skills that could transform you and your families to obtain a better life,” Mr. Adamu told the graduates. Tearfund, he said, is partnering with AEL in providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene education, confronting gender based violence, and reducing the prevalence and effects of HIV and AIDS.Reverend Dr. Nuwoe-James Kiamu, President of AEL Board of Governors, told the graduates that their decision to acquire additional skills shows that they are heading for development, adding, “You are a part of the solution to the country’s problems and not part of the problems.”Rev Dr. Kiamu said while others are sitting and complaining about opportunities that have not come their way, “you are standing and channeling your challenges into opportunities by adding beauty to life through the skill you acquired.”“I challenge you to remain intuitive, focused and industrious as you step out to change your life and the lives of many other Liberians.” Reverend Ebenezer M. Binda, Project Coordinator of AEL, said 18 communities are currently benefiting from the Ebola Recovery Project, which started in April 2015 with the aim of providing livelihood to Ebola survivors in Margibi and Montserrado Counties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

THREE potential David De Gea replacements named by former Man United goalkeeper

first_imgDavid De Gea is fully expected to leave Manchester United for Real Madrid this summer.Mark Bosnich joined the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast to discuss the Spaniard’s impending departure, and listed three goalkeepers he thinks are good enough to fill De Gea’s gloves.The former United stopper said: “Petr Cech looks like he has his mind set on Arsenal, but I would go for him.“Hugo Lloris is another person I would bid for. He has been outstanding for Tottenham, he is quite young, he is really good with his feet. He would suit the style that Louis van Gaal would like to play.“Jan Oblak has also done very well at Atletico Madrid. He is another one I would be looking at. I would go for those three first to see if they are available.”last_img read more

Sunderland complete signing of Sebastian Coates from Liverpool

first_img Sebastian Coates Sunderland have confirmed the permanent signing of defender Sebastian Coates from Liverpool.The 24-year-old Uruguay international, who had a year remaining on his contract at Anfield, becomes Black Cats head coach Dick Advocaat’s first arrival of the summer and pens a four-year deal and for a fee understood to be in the region of £2million.Coates joined Sunderland on loan for the season in September last year under then head coach Gus Poyet, but initially struggled to make his mark at the Stadium of Light.However, he played every minute of the club’s final six games of the season, in the process taking his tally to 13 appearances, as the Black Cats dragged themselves out of relegation trouble, and evidently did enough to persuade Advocaat he had a future in the north-east.Sporting director Lee Congerton said: “Sebastian was an important part of the team under Dick last season and we are delighted that he has joined us on a permanent basis.“He has Barclays Premier League experience, which is important and, after spending last season on loan with us, he will be able to settle into the team very quickly.” 1last_img read more
