Guyana got money galore. Since dem boys blink is nuff millions spending and is not money that dem lending countries giving we. Is money poor people pay as VAT and as tax and money that some of dem was to get as pension but which de government keep.
Dem have a word fuh that but dem boys know that de government honest. Even if dem push dem whole hand in de Treasury dem only tekking wha deh inside. And if dem tek wha deh outside is not thiefing. Is tekking.
Suh dem tekking money in different ways. Imagine dem put out an international tender fuh de hydro project. Dem select a bid because de Chinese company put in a bid that was close to what de government intend to spend on de project. That shoulda be de price of de project but it change even before de Chinese company even put in a screw or a rivet.
Dem boys seh that wha happen was that when somebody do de Maths dem find out that de drawback was too small.
De people who got to build de project ain’t ask fuh nutten. Dem ain’t even start buying anything but de honest people in Guyana decide that things gone up. Who gun tek de extra money?

But is who tekking de extra money from Amaila? That is a state secret. It more secret than de Pentagon and de Vatican and State House.
Talk half. Lef half.
