GWI is lucky Guyanese do not actively sue for damages

first_imgDear Editor,Guyana has earned its name from the Amerindians, meaning “Land of Many Waters”. Ironically, in this land of many waters, that precious, supposedly colorless mineral, has become the most abused, wasted and expensive commodity.Just over a year ago, I had reason to publicise a Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) billing issue. Senior management and executives subsequently met with me over it. I presented my facts, and the issue, which had greater reach than my simple highlight, was acknowledged and efforts were subsequently made to correct it.My publicity of the GWI issue did not go down well with some persons and even resulted in minor collateral damage. A once close friend, who was closely linked to the GWI executives, took offence to my actions and our friendship dissipated over the ensuing months. In life, you win some and you lose some.GWI’s operation, is again the subject of my attention. On October 19, 2018 at 12:11h, I sent a video and photograph of a leaking water main located in a North-Eastern section of Georgetown to the GWI Facebook Account. All relevant details were provided. My message was read by someone at the GWI at 12:12h- one minute later- the same day. To date, the water main continues to leak. I estimate that thousands of gallons of water have been wasted over the months since the main first started leaking, although some ingenious resident in the area placed an old bucket over the breakage to prevent the water from sprouting into the air. Hundreds more gallons of water may have been wasted since I took my precious time and effort in a public-spirited gesture to inform the GWI via its fancy Facebook public interface over a week ago. Is GWI really serious about its PR, advertisements, and appeals for members of the public to report breakages and leaking water mains?I am no stranger to this type of culture of inaction in my hydrophilic country, but it is stifling to absorb the hypocrisy and even animosity that some in the corporate arena develop when the public media is engaged in such matters, which invariably expose their apparent slighting attitudes or incompetence.The people at GWI may, again, be unhappy with this missive, notwithstanding their untimeliness in addressing my report of the leakage. If acted upon, the entity will undoubtedly avert the unnecessary spending of hundreds of thousands of dollars in water wastage, as well as restore full water pressure to consumers in the affected areas.Some other time I will address the issue of that orange-ish-brown colour of the water, which permanently stains everything it comes into contact with, from linens to toilets and sanitary ware. GWI is lucky to be operating in a country where persons do not actively sue for damages.Yours faithfully,Orette Cuttinglast_img read more

Irish Soldiers forced to splash out €800 for return flight from foreign tours

first_imgIrish soldiers on foreign tours of duty are forced to splash out up to €800 to return home on leave, according to a new report. Troops serving in places such as Lebanon and the Golan Heights in Syria are given three weeks of leave during their six months deployment.But they’re not allowed stay in the mission area and must fund their own travel back to Ireland to see loved ones. Ireland currently has 655 soldiers serving overseas, with 460 of these forming part of the United Nations Interim Force in the Lebanon.The 114th infantry battalion flew out to the Middle East state last month to begin their six month tour of duty in the region.It’s estimated that the cost of a return flight from the Lebanon to Ireland costs €800, which must be paid for by each member.Labour’s defence spokesman Brendan Ryan described the practice as “disgraceful”. He told the Irish Sun: “I’ve raised the mistreatment of members of the Defence Forces a number of times in the Dail and this is just another example of this.“The Minister continuously says that they are valued but it’s clear they’re not.“We keep hearing about the low pay many are made to scrape by on and then something like this just adds to their hardship, just so they can see their families.“If they have three weeks leave from any tour of duty then they are going to go home to see their families.“They, along with their loved ones, make great sacrifices when they travel abroad on missions and if they’re flying home during their tours on leave then the Defence Forces should be paying for it.” Last month, Over 400 men and women of the Irish Defence Forces paraded through Letterkenny ahead of their six-month deployment to South Lebanon.Four hundred and fifty troops rotated to South Lebanon in what is Ireland’s largest overseas deployment to a single mission area.Irish Soldiers forced to splash out €800 for return flight from foreign tours was last modified: June 14th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe mascot for the CAF African Nations Championship or Chan 2014 is this hippo dressed as a soccer player. (Image: CAF)MEDIA CONTACTS• Eric MwanzaCAF Media Officer Cape Town+ 27 612593821Ray MaotaWith its sophisticated infrastructure and experience in successfully hosting major international tournaments, South Africa has become the go-to country in Africa for continental and world sporting events. This year, it’s the turn of the CAF African Nations Championship, or Chan 2014, which kicks off in Cape Town on 11 January.A 16-team competition of African nations, with players drawn exclusively from the different countries’ domestic leagues, the tournament runs from 11 January to 1 February 2014, with matches held in three South African cities. Bafana Bafana will face Mozambique in the opening game at Cape Town Stadium at 18h00 on Saturday.See all the Chan 2014 fixturesMiller Matola, chief executive of Brand South Africa, welcomed the 15 other African teams to South Africa. “With games being played in Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Polokwane, visitors to our country will have an opportunity to experience our diversity and the unique quality of the different provinces,” he said. “However, the welcome of our people remains the same throughout the country and all South Africans look forward to hosting our visitors.”Matola said South Africans had demonstrated their warm hospitality and love of the beautiful game during the 2009 Confederations Cup, 2010 Fifa World Cup, and 2012 African Cup of Nations.“We are all ambassadors for this country so let us play our part and be good hosts during the Chan tournament.” The tournamentDuring the group stages of Chan 2014, two matches will be played every day from 11 to 22 January.The four groups making up the tournament will play in three different South African cities. Group A is made up of South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, as well as Mali, Nigeria and Mozambique, and will play in Cape Town. Group B – Morocco, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Burkina Faso – will also play in Cape Town.Group C, made up of Ghana, Congo, Libya and Ethiopia, will play in Bloemfontein in the Free State, and Group D – DRC, Mauritania, Gabon and Burundi – in Polokwane, Limpopo.The Chan tournament was not originally on Fifa’s calendar as it restricted which players could represent each country. But Fifa has since announced that matches will have full Fifa status, meaning they will count towards country world rankings. South African preparationsBafana Bafana’s preparations started with a hiccup as some clubs were reluctant to release their players. This was quickly resolved, and national coach Gordon Igesund has declared himself happy with the preparations.“The challenge is to get Bafana going to a point that we get into the top eight in Africa, so that we can be seeded when the draw for big tournaments is made,” Igesund said.“After beating Spain, we should carry on with the habit of winning and [the African Nations Championship] is a type of tournament where it is important for the team to do well.”Igesund stressed that crowd support will be important to Bafana’s success.“Nothing is more inspiring to a footballer than having a packed stadium behind him. We face tough opposition, but I am looking forward to winning the tournament.”Fikile Mbalula, minister of sport and recreation, visited the squad at their base camp in Cape Town on 9 January to wish them well.“If you go with the mentality that teams have not sent strong players here you are going to be surprised by Mozambique,” he warned. “They will want to come here and embarrass you.“And you don’t want to appear as people who did not give their all and did not want to represent their country. I thought I needed to emphasise that point that we have pride in you, and we are confident that all of you will make this country of ours proud. Rewards come at the end, not at the beginning.”last_img read more
