I have observed the haste in which your newspaper has presumably taken on the role of a political cosmetologist, as some of your reporters appear to be on a desperate mission to apply a large quantity of facial make-up on numerous PPP officials who were not so long ago major players in a corrupt, and despotic government.
Sadly, these very politically arrogant former ministers and officials have not only displayed frequent and shameless disregard for press freedom, the will to express one’s self without fear of being victimized, removal of government advertisements both onetime independent and popular dailies, but is yet to answer a single question about the assassinations of Minister Sash Sawh, Ronald Waddell, and Courtney Crum-Ewing.
Unlike the young Ramson who has suddenly become an overnight expert on oil issues, and has been given several extensions of his already expired fifteen minutes of oil fame in the form of his daily ranting, I will ignore him for now since his bites are nowhere close to being venomous as the real rattlesnakes on Robb and Church Streets.
Editor, now back to the political cosmetologist theory. Anil Nandlall, is apparently being given a free make-over, inclusive of hair, nails and hairdo by the reporter who has basically allowed him to package himself without being properly grilled on important issues during his controversial tenure as Attorney General.
In her far from objective article: “Cyber Crime Bill creates criminal offence for emails that cause harm” (May 14, 2018) reporter Abena Rockcliffe-Campbell, has in my humble opinion exposed her cards. Unfortunately, during her chit chat with Anil, at no time did she remind him of the fact that the PPP not so long ago charged three persons with SEDITION. Yet, he is given a free pass to rant about and has again exposed his hypocrisy.

Editor’s note:: Nandlall was asked about the sedition charges. To the question he said that Guyana should not look back. He admitted to the charges being laid by how government but contended that the time is now for those charges to be repealed.
