Govt knows support dwindling amid disaffection – Opposition MP

first_img…criticises APNU/AFC for cancelling midnight flag-raising ceremonyThe Government is involved in all sorts of gymnastics as it attempts to conceal the fact that its support within some of its key and traditional stronghold communities is dwindling because of disaffection among its supporters and a menu of poor-thought-out and implemented anti-poor policies.This is according to Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Member of Parliament, Juan Edghill, who noted that the situation is so dire that the A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change coalition Government was forced to abandon the “pomp and ceremony” associated with the hosting of the country’s annual Independence anniversary celebrations at D’Urban Park. He said this was done because it is unable to mobilise and convince Guyanese to congregate for the event in the midst of one of the country’s hardest economic periods as of late.Opposition MP, Juan EdghillEdghill, who was a former Finance Minister under the PPP Government, made the comments on Friday following a walkabout in the city, which was interrupted by a spate of continuous and persistent downpours.Edghill, asked if he was surprised by Government’s decision not to host the annual midnight flag-raising ceremony at the multibillion-dollar D’Urban Park facility, responded in the negative.He said it was clear that the coalition Government is not as popular as it claims because it cannot even attract persons from the South Georgetown communities and other areas such as Sophia, Albouystown and central Georgetown to be present at the event were it to be held.He criticised the move to abandon the traditional midnight flag-raising event, which has been a staple in the diets and psyches of Guyanese for decades. Edghill was disappointed that the coalition resorted to “renting a crowd of school children” on the same to be part of what may be another lacklustre event at the deteriorating D’Urban Park facility.Edghill decried the fact that the D’Urban Park facility remains underutilised but fully understood the scepticism on the part of companies and businesses. He explained that this is despite the fact that over $1.4 billion has been spent already on the entire project since its establishment.The Opposition MP slammed the Government for its decision to continue to spend millions to repair and “spur up” the park as dismissed the move to only host big flag raising events every five years as a policy.“Where have all the flowers gone,” Edghill asked as he said that the Government’s dwindling support is linked to its lack of performance. He even suggested that D’Urban Park was the Government’s signature project which represented the ideology of the David Granger Administration.“It was a hustle from the beginning,” he pressed, as he said that the Social Cohesion Minister should be ashamed of the manner in which activities are being conceptualised to mark Guyana’s 52nd independence anniversary.

Manchester City 2-1 Leicester City: Guardiola’s men tighten grip on third spot

first_imgRiyad Mahrez’s penalty slip ensured Manchester City did not take a tumble of their own in the Champions League race, moving third with a 2-1 win over Leicester at the Etihad Stadium.On the fifth anniversary of their first Premier League title win their 2012 hero Sergio Aguero was restricted to a late cameo but a penalty from his heir apparent, Gabriel Jesus, and David Silva’s opener left City with the points.Shinji Okazaki gave the Foxes hope with a stunning volley before half-time but when Mahrez had the chance to level from the spot 13 minutes from time, he lost his footing and touched the ball into his standing leg.The effort somehow still ended up in the top corner but referee Robert Madley spotted the infringement and chalked off what would have been a fitting reward for Leicester’s unexpected comeback.Instead City finally put away their bogey side, who have taken seven points from the the last three games between these sides, including December’s 4-2 thrashing at the King Power Stadium.City hogged possession from the first whistle but the best early chances came from corners at either end, Fernandinho and Wilfred Ndidi both misplacing headers from good positions.Leroy Sane was next to spurn a clear sight of goal, dragging wide from six yards after Ndidi’s poor clearance. That was virtually the on blemish on the German’s first-half display, as he menaced Danny Simpson with a kinetic performance on the left wing.Sane was a fitting creator for City’s 29th-minute opener, though his fine take down and cross would not have been possible without a wonderful cross-field ball from Fernandinho.Silva arrived to sweep home City’s first for the second match in a row, with Leicester appealing without success for an offside flag against Raheem Sterling. The England winger had flung a boot at Silva’s shot without making apparent contact.City’s second came seven minutes later, Sane’s quick feet taking him into the box where he was taken out in comprehensive fashion by Yohan Benalouane. In Aguero’s absence Jesus stepped up, slotting home after a gentle approach for his fifth City goal.Leicester might have hunkered down for half-time but instead conjured a remarkable response, Okazaki rifling his unstoppable tumbling volley past Willy Caballero after Marc Albrighton’s cross. After 23 games without a goal, it was almost worth the wait.Leicester were buoyant after the break, creating quick counters through Jamie Vardy, Okazaki and Ben Chilwell as the City swagger evaporated.Suddenly things became more physical, Albrighton left with vivid black eye after an unintentional elbow from Fernandinho and Jesus floored in an aerial duel with Christian Fuchs.By the time Gael Clichy needlessly floored Mahrez on the edge of the box, the visitors were well worth their shot at an equaliser.They were one good connection away but Mahrez could not hold his footing and neither Caballero nor Madley missed the double contact.Aguero had 12 minutes – plus seven for stoppages – to mark City’s famous date in style but the suspicion remains that Pep Guardiola sees the Argentinean as part of the club’s past rather than a central figure of the future.

What to make of Derek Carr’s 6-game interception-less streak

first_imgALAMEDA — Only three NFL quarterbacks currently own interception-less streaks of more than three games.Tom Brady, arguably the best quarterback ever.

Carr has completed 119-of-183 passes during his stretch, good for a 65-percent completion rate. However, he’s only thrown for 1,186 yards over those six games, less than …last_img

72 days that shaped South Africa (5)

first_imgJust how “miraculous” was South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy? How close did the country really come to civil war?Check out our press clipping snapshots of the 72 days leading up to Nelson Mandela’s inauguration as SA’s first democratically elected President – and see how heavily the odds were stacked against “the rainbow nation”.28 MARCH 1994KwaZulu simmersThe KwaZulu/Natal region remained a tinder box over the weekend – despite several high-profile peace initiatives. In one incident, the home of African National Congress regional premier candidate Mr Jacob Zuma was torched by a mob on Saturday night in Nxamalala, near Inkandla, in Northern Natal.Anti-ANC pamphlets, accusing the organisation of colluding with the government (described as “the Boers”) to overthrow Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini, were strewn in the area. Zulus were also urged not to vote in the April 27 elections.Sowetan, Monday 28 March 199429 MARCH 1994Mayhem as Zulus march in Jo’burgMore than 30 people were killed and hundreds injured in battles in the Johannesburg area yesterday as tens of thousands of Zulus converged on the city centre to demonstrate their support for King Goodwill Zwelithini.Eight Zulu marchers were killed outside the ANC’s headquarters in Plein Street when security guards fired into the crowd after snipers fired on the building.Minutes later, volleys of gunfire sent a huge crowd at the Library Gardens rally scattering for cover. When the commotion subsided at least five people lay dead.Business Day, Tuesday 29 March 1994SADF troops sent to QwaQwa capitalPhuthaditjaba – More than 200 people were arrested yesterday and SADF troops were deployed in QwaQwa after a march by thousands of public servants on the homeland’s parliament deteriorated into violence, with demonstrators breaking windows and looting shops.Business Day, Tuesday 29 March 199430 MARCH 1994Buthelezi threatens to fight as TEC agrees on a state of emergencyInkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi yesterday vowed to fight the ANC “to the finish” unless the elections were postponed – as the Transitional Executive Council recommended emergency measures in KwaZulu/Natal.A state of emergency encompassing the whole of Natal and KwaZulu would be proclaimed by the President within the next few days, the TEC agreed.The declaration, accompanied by the incremental deployment of SADF troops, was intended to halt the escalation of violence in the region as well as ensure free and fair elections next month.Business Day, Wednesday 30 March 199431 MARCH 1994Support for NP has grown, our poll revealsWith less than a month to go in the election campaign, the National Party has rallied, increasing its support by 6 percent – mostly at the expense of the ANC.Nelson Mandela’s organisation appears assured of a convincing victory at the polls, but improved showings by President de Klerk’s party, as well as the PAC and General Constand Viljoen’s new Freedom Front, leave the question of a two-thirds ANC majority wide open.This is likely to be the main focus of the remaining weeks of campaigning.The Star, Thursday 31 March 19941 APRIL 1994Police pay to triple during electionThe daily allowances of South African Police will rise three-fold during the election period to keep them in line with the much better pay of members of the National Peacekeeping Force. The pay bonus is considered vital to boost police morale and avert an internal revolt.Weekly Mail & Guardian, Friday 1 April 1994TEC’s plan to police the policeThe Transitional Executive Council took its first decisive step to check rogue police elements by forming a police inspectorate charged with keeping a watch on various police agencies during the election run-up.A transitional complaints mechanism will also be established for civilians to protest against unacceptable police conduct.Weekly Mail & Guardian, Friday 1 April 19942 APRIL 1994Why FW cracked down in NatalChilling intelligence reports predicting a sharp increase in KwaZulu/Natal violence fatalities as the election approached finally persuaded President de Klerk to declare a state of emergency in the region, according to government sources.Weekend Star, Saturday 2 April 19943 APRIL 1994Voters call for one SAVoters in the Pretoria-Witwatersrand (PWV), Western Cape and KwaZulu/Natal overwhelmingly reject the idea of an independent Zulu kingdom and the notion of a white homeland.Some 61% of voters in the PWV, 43% in the Western Cape and 58% in KwaZulu/Natal were against an independent Zulu kingdom.More than 77% of voters in the PWV, 60% in the Western Cape and 72% in KwaZulu/Natal said they were against an independent volkstaat.Sunday Times, Sunday 3 April 1994The story continued …1 – 6 March 19947 – 13 March 199414 – 20 March 199421 – 27 March 199428 March – 3 April 19944 – 10 April 199411 – 17 April 199418 – 24 April 199425 April – 1 May 19942 – 8 May 19949 – 11 May 1994Research, photos: Ndaba DlaminiWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
