Melissa Ramdeen, Special Projects Manager of the Berbice Regional Health Authority, must admit that Kaieteur News was evenhanded in carrying her response to Tahal’s letter.
Ramdeen has put to the public domain procedures which SHOULD be observed as they relate to intake and outflow of supplies. The Public Sector of this country may perhaps have one of the best operating systems in the English-speaking Caribbean. But, is it working?
I wish to suggest to Ramdeen that it is not the system which is defective. Rather, it is the people who manipulate the system; who render the system defective.
GRA boasts of TRIPS and a whole lot of measures in place to curb corruption by its officers and importers. It is not the TRIPS system which is tripping up Sattaur; it is his staff. The Deeds Registry has touts who collect money from people and communicate by cell phones with staff which documents should be released. I have seen that. I am talking first hand.
So, Ms. Ramdeen, do not go about hoodwinking the public. Tahal knows what he is talking about. I wish others could be bold enough to bring to the public the massive corruption which Region Six officials engage in.
Remember the $12M. flat bed trailer scam? Some who were involved are still employed in Region Six. NCN Berbice is still paying a chauffeur who is no longer employed by NCN. What has the system got to do with it? It is the people; people who should be in jail right now, but who this Administration still has in its employ to perpetuate corruption. I had hoped that President Ramotar would have cut some of these thieves adrift. I was wrong.
Thank God that AFC and Kaieteur News in Guyana. The ripples they have caused by exposing corruption will soon become a tsunami. We will need a very large jail to put away for a long time those who have been stealing the people’s money.
