Kaieteur News – Following discussions with and the help of the Honorable Minister of Culture, Youth & Sports, Mr. Charles Ramson Jnr. who had visited Bush Lot Sports Ground on the 13th, February, 2021, a Management Committee to oversee the affairs of the venue was selected recently and is headed by Rajiv Kishun.
On his visit earlier this month the Minister interacted with residents on a number of issues affecting them. One of the main concerns was the issue of the management of the affairs of the community sports ground.
He was briefed on the previous committee that managed the ground from 2008 to 2015, where concerns were raised as it relates to proper consultation with the residents on getting work done at the ground and also transparency and accountability issues.
After 2015, the ground fell under the management of the NDC, and the same members that previously managed the ground selected themselves without any consultations with the residents. These members were councilors of the NDC. During the past five years, the NDC did very little or nothing for the enhancement and development of the Bush Lot sports ground.
Upon hearing all of this, the Minister made a commitment to the residents, where he outlined his plans and pledged his support towards the development of the ground and facility.
He recommended that an election be held on the 21st, February, 2021, by the residents of the village.
The Honorable MP Mr. Faizal Jaffarally and Vice Chairman, Mr. Rion Peters of Region 5, chaired, monitored and subsequently declared the results of the elections which were attended by a large number of residents. The residents voted overwhelmingly for the following individuals to handle the affairs of the Bush Lot Ground Management Committee:
President: Mr. Rajiv Kishun
Vice President: Mr. Dhanraj Ganesh
Secretary: Dr. Joel Dilchand
