Aug 29, 2012 Letters Comments Off on Minister Rohee is not culpable of any wrongdoing and should remain in office
I have listened to the various calls by the opposition for the resignation/dismissal and their subsequent no confidence motion against Hon. Minister Clement Rohee. His only sin being the Minister of Home Affairs at the time of the politically-motivated unrest in Linden which lead to the unfortunate death of young men, who the opposition should accept full responsibility for their demise.
Before I go further let me make it very clear that I am not a supporter of the PPP, neither am I a friend of Clement Rohee, as a matter of fact I heard he hates me ( Justifiable or not )
As a concerned Guyanese, a private investigator and security consultant, I closely and covertly monitored the unrest in Linden, from day one and list some of my findings.
1.) That the Hon. Minister Clement Rohee did not instruct any member of the joint services to use live rounds or to maim, kill or disfigure anyone directly or indirectly.
2.) That the unrest was politically motivated.
3.) That the police on several occasions during the protest were attacked and were exposed to serious danger to their person and as a last resort used the required force.
4.) That the burning of several buildings was committed by persons other than protestors, and also not by agents of the state.
5.) The opposition elements for their own political gains incited, counseled, procured and commanded protestors to make unreasonable demands and to behave in a certain way.
6.) That several miners, loggers and other individuals were hindered, assaulted and had their vehicle burnt or seriously damaged by protestors while going about their lawful business and the opposition did nothing to put an end to such criminal acts.
7.) There are several other issues too numerous to mention but which I am sure will come out as the commission of enquiry.
In view of the foregoing it is my humble opinion that:
1.) The Minister of Home Affairs is not culpable of any wrongdoing and should remain in office.
2.) That all those who were assaulted and had their vehicles damaged by protestors should give evidence when the commission of inquiry is convened.
3.) That all fair-minded persons who witnessed the police being attacked should come forward and give evidence and some form of protection be offered.
In closing, I challenge the opposition to make similar representation for other underprivileged, poor and needy in other regions of Guyana.
I am sure after the publication of this letter I will come under personal attack by many in our midst who pretend to be angels by day but are devils by night. I like so many of us have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But I challenge those without sin, and who want Mr. Rohee’s head, to cast the first stone and as Bob Marley sings “who the cap fit let them wear it”.
I will not respond to any of my critics.
