Let me say first that Moses, the Proverbial Saint, was the Deliverer and on Election Day, November 28, the world will see that Moses Nagamootoo, who, by no stretch of the imagination, can be described as a saint, will deliver the Guyanese, from the clutches of the PPP.
I would like draw the public’s attention to the attitude of the PPP now that Moses Nagamootoo is on the AFC platform by using a simple analogy.
A man is married to a woman and he drinks a bit. He is the sole bread-winner of the family. Now, during the early days of the marriage all went well and he was very loving and very helpful in the home.
Then came a child. He started to come home a bit late on weekends and would be abusive (verbally) when the wife questions him. About the beginning of the third year another child was born. The behaviour continued and one day he slapped the wife.
When he came home from work that day, the wife and the children were gone. Of course, they went to the wife’s parents and so he went there and they reconciled, with promises of “no more drinking” and “no more slapping”, the wife returned to her matrimonial home with the children.
Things went well for a few months and, slowly, started to get to the stage where the late nights out and the drinking and the slaps were more frequent.
The wife left and then refused to return when he went to plead. A few days later he is served with a summons to go to court for maintenance for the wife and the children.
Let us look at the man’s attitude at this stage and in so doing we must be fair to the parties. He would come down very accusingly on the woman, saying, “she has a man” or “someone is encouraging her”.
His ego and stupidity will allow him to say things like,” she never worked one day since I married her”. He is shocked out of his wits that the wife left and decided not to return. More so because she took legal action against him.
The proper thing to do is look at yourself Mr. Man. Withdraw a bit from the male, macho ladder you are on and ask yourself, “what have I done to drive her away?” or “am I that bad that she does not want to come back to me?”.
The Nagamootoo saga is no different. Moses has served the PPP for 50 years. His loyalty to the PPP and Dr Cheddi Jagan could never have been questioned. In 2005, Moses Nagamootoo spoke at a meeting in Toronto and expressed serious regrets at the way the Jagdeo PPP treated him, yet, he stated clearly that his loyalty was to the Party.
Moses Nagamootoo remained with the PPP/C and helped to give them victory in 2006 at the polls. Let us not forget the clips NCN ran for weeks after the AFC announced that Nagamootoo would join that party.
They tried to ‘hustle’ the public with all the propaganda by showing the 2005 campaign that Moses took part in and featured clips on how vibrant he was on the PPP/C platform and now, now we hear cries from the PPP camp from all corners, top to bottom, left to right and even the likes of ‘Mutt’ and ‘Jeff’, that Moses is ‘Namakharam’, ‘he was a liability’, ‘he is no big loss to the PPP/C’.
Mr. Jagdeo and the ‘Bulwark’ of the PPP/C, Donald Ramotar, I ask you, in the name of decency and fair play (which will come to you with tremendous difficulty) ask your goons to cut the abuse and derogatory remarks they are making about Moses Nagamootoo.
The man had an unblemished record with the PPP and he should be given the respect he deserves. He has a right to choose a Political party to be affiliated to.
Withdraw, Excellency, and like the distraught husband, take a look at yourself (the PPP) and then I am sure you will find the fault bearer. Joey Jagan, Robert Persaud, Clement Rohee and the rest in the party who find fault, try not to compare yourself with Moses Nagamootoo, in any sphere, you will not match up in this lifetime.
Moses Nagamootoo is not heartbroken because he took what the PPP/C dished him for a long time and tolerated it, and them, for a bit too long.
He realized a while ago that the separation was inevitable and he was building up to it so that it does not hurt him. The hurt is now going to be felt by the Ramotar clan.
Let me close by saying that the PPP/C is, at the moment, like a man who was in an accident and showed no visible signs of injury, and then he dies a few days later, after he was released from a hospital (like New Amsterdam hospital, where they, so often cannot tell what is wrong with a patient).
The man had internal injuries and was bleeding internally. So it is with the PPP/C, now that Moses Nagamootoo has joined forces with the AFC.
The PPP/C is reeling in pain and now they are in panic mode!!!
