It is of no surprise that the APNU+AFC and their affiliates would consistently try to derail the progress of the PPP/C Government by peddling misinformation and blatant lies. After all, it is in their very nature to do so. The recent narrative that they have concocted with the sole intention of inciting public terror is that there is a kidnapping situation in Guyana. The very fact that these individuals can spew such baseless claims without any remorse for the implications of such on the Guyanese populace is exactly why they are part of the opposition and not government.
About a week ago we saw Gavin Matthews take to social media claiming that he was kidnapped by PPP/C agents. This resulted in the entire APNU+AFC cabal and their affiliates creating nonsensical postings all over social media for their followings to be “informed” of the situation. However, if there was any truth to this kidnapping claim, why didn’t Gavin Matthews and his people name these so called PPP/C agents? Why weren’t reports made with the CID so that an investigation can be launched into the allegations? The reason why that was not done was because it simply could not have been done. Gavin Matthews and his affiliates’ only intentions are to incite fear into the Guyanese populace by putting forth misinformation.
In fact, according to reports from the Commissioner of Police (ag), Nigel Hoppie, the Guyana Police Force has recorded a 46.6 per cent decrease in serious crimes for the period January 01 to March 05, 2021. Evidence of this was plastered in the newspapers in early March after the Commissioner spoke at the opening ceremony of the Police Officers’ Annual Conference. For the sake of clarity especially for the likeness of Gavin Matthews and his affiliates, serious crimes include murder, robbery under arms, robbery with violence, robbery with aggravation, larceny from a person, break and enter and larceny, burglary, rape, and kidnapping.
It is clear that people like Gavin Matthews and now more recently, Chris Gopaul, are focused solely on discrediting the administration for their commendable efforts. The most recent propaganda orchestrated by the APNU+AFC and spread by individuals like Chris Gopaul is that the so called “kidnapping situation” in Guyana is becoming increasingly alarming. They have even managed to circulate voice messages through social media platforms in order to make their baseless claims appear worrisome to Guyanese. Such distasteful actions must be ridiculed by all right thinking citizens as they are only geared at inciting panic and unnecessary fear.
If people are being kidnapped as they are claiming, where is the evidence? Who are these individuals? Why was the police not informed? Why were there no reports in the media of such kidnappings? The reason for this is simply because it’s all lies. Guyana does not have a kidnapping situation ongoing.
I will conclude by urging all Guyanese to reject these attempts that are being made by APNU+AFC and their cohorts to incite fear in the society even amidst the pandemic. The fact that they can peddle such misinformation and baseless claims reflect the type of people they are. The PPP/C Government shows determination in making Guyana all that it can be. Do not let the APNU+AFC distort such truth with their lies.
