SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS
People are more paranoid
than cautious about Ebola.
Yes, we need to be prepared
in case it comes to our coun-
try, but as far as I am seeing,
like we really want this dis-
ease to come here.
Because if doctors are ask-
ing for a raise in salary and a
$10 million insurance policy if
they contact Ebola it shows
that they are more interested
in making money than trying
to save lives.
To hear these doctors mak-
ing these kind of demands is
so ludicrous and absurd. I did
not hear of any health work-
ers in America making any
such demands on the US
Government if they contacted
the Ebola virus.
What I believe the Govern-
ment should do is to make
sure these doctors are educat-
ed and equipped so they will
understand more about the
virus and they will able to
educate the nation in case this
dreaded disease come in our
At this point nobody really
knows what they are doing;
everyone is just running
around like headless chickens
and getting paranoid.
Our paranoia has caused the
Government to ban Nigerians
from coming to our country.
If they had paid attention
they would have known that
Nigeria was listed safe from
Ebola. Over 42 days the coun-
try was declared free of the
Ebola virus. The question was
asked why Nigeria was able to
beat Ebola but not Boko
I hope the Government will
apologise to the Nigerian
T&T SHOULD APOLOGISE
TO NIGERIAN GOVT
The sorry state that is West
Indies cricket has sunk to a new
low. The players, having voted for
Wavell Hinds as the president of
WIPA, unhappy with the terms
negotiated with the WICB, have
decided to quit the tour and
return home like spoiled children,
unmindful and uninterested in the
fallout this will cause.
Their attempt to negotiate
directly with the WICB was quite
rightfully rejected out of hand.
The players have a quarrel with
their representative, no one else.
They had a duty to complete
the tour, subsequently call an
EGM of WIPA and replace Mr
Hinds if that was their desire.
I would ban the lot of them
from international cricket and I
sincerely hope that their lucrative
contracts with the IPL are with-
drawn. Enough is enough.
A sorry state of cricketing affairs
Everything we are seeing and
hearing now, is a very carefully
controlled and orchestrated effort by
the government to brainwash civil-
ians into believing that they have
done some truly great things for the
population in the past 4 1/2 years.
Within the next year we are going
to be bombarded with government
propaganda in every form of media
(radio, local television, cinemas,
social media, theatres, billboards,
newspapers and inserts into news-
papers, magazines, visual and per-
forming arts, loudspeakers on vehi-
cles and so on) on a close to 24-
hour basis. I wonder if Housing
Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal can tell
us how many houses were built by
the Government during its tenure?
Dare I say none? Thank God, I can
ignore and steups at such an
absurdity. One wonders how much
a weary population can take.
Linus F Didier,
How much more can a weary population take?
Poorly constructed box
drains at Gandiah street
I wish to highlight the plight of
residents of Gandiah Street,
Chaguanas, as a result of the con-
struction of high box drains by a
private contractor, who has been
contracted by the URP Central
Division. These works are being
done without any area plans and in
an ad hoc manner which also does
not conform to proper building
This has resulted in the box
drains being built at a level above
that of the land at the eastern end
of Gandiah Street. Instead of
removing water it has been acting
as a barrier in this lowlying area,
deflecting it when it rains, and
trapping the water, making it stag-
nant when it does not.
Despite numerous complaints to
the Chaguanas Borough Corpora-
tion, the County Superintendent,
the Chief Engineer, the councillor
for the area, the URP manager, the
PR contractor and engineer, noth-
ing has been done to correct this
situation. The Borough Corporation
has informed that they are not
responsible for the project and
advised that the matter be referred
to the Minister of Local Govern-
ment, who they said had responsi-
bility for it. This has been done
and residents are awaiting feed-
In the interim, the box drains are
causing flooding each time it rains.
The water trapped on the large
area of vacant land overflows onto
residences causing much distress.
The stagnant water also poses a
health hazard as it has become a
breeding ground for mosquitoes
