Firstly, I wish to express my condolences to the bereaved families that have lost  loved ones on the road recently. I, too, had that experience. I feel your pain. I share your hurt. Yes we can solve this problem. The causes of collisions can range from lack of experience, speeding, drinking and driving, recklessness and not wearing seat belts.

The situation in of gang war fare in Enterprise, Chaguanas is one of the grave concerns to all that live and work in that area. Many have placed themselves into self-imposed curfews. This is not the situation that we want to live in.

In the diversification of our economy we have to produce tradables, goods and services for export that are competitive on the global market. Some hold the view that this is the domain of the private sector.

It is no secret that a number of Muslims from the Trinidad Muslim community have left the twin islands to journey to Syria to support or join the Islamic State (IS/Isis). There have been a number of reports locally and internationally about this phenomenon.

The People’s Partnership government had five years and on it is only in their last month of the last year that they brought the Amendment to the Industrial Relations (Amendment) Bill 2015 which was laid in Parliament on International Workers Day, May 1st 2015. This could never be evidence of comm

More prevalent than all the other crimes committed in the country is noise pollution; but because the victims of noise have not or are yet to run amok and commit mayhem against the offending and offensive perpetrators, nothing is being done by those in authority who have turned a deaf ear, switch

The waiting is over. The SEA results have been released; we can now all exhale simultaneously.

Nearly everyone has someone who wrote the exam—son, daughter, niece, nephew or acquaintance.

My son wrote the SEA exam on May 7, and like many of the other children who also wrote the exam he studied hard, he prepared and he attended extra lessons—all the things that we are told should be done to ensure our children do well.

Guyana’s May 11 election ended in controversy on which political force actually won resulting in a petition over the request to the election commission (Gecom) for a recount. Gecom’s refusal of a vote recount has led to suspicion of something amiss about the result.

The PM’s request that principals of schools that do well in the SEA should share their strategies with other schools is not necessary.

In his article, Raymond Ramcharitar (“And the Lord Said… What?”, July 1) condescendingly asks the question, “What does ‘I believe the Bible’ mean?” He then goes on to suggest that to believe in the Bible, ie, to believe the word of God; to believe what God has said is to believe in slavery, misog

The National Security Minister will have to wait until pigs are seen flying before he can ever get to the bottom of which policeman tipped off the criminals at Chaguanas. It is obvious that the police are working in tandem with the big boys of crime and corruption here, acting as protectors to th
