ah tellin yuh he got he own agenda. he deh pon scunt.

while pursuing my agenda of scunt today I ducked into a place to reflect on said agenda and catch my breath

hello morning are you here for this that and such?
no i jus came off the road to get a cup of coffee. how much is it? (
i’ve got $500 in my pocket to splurge. 500 = $2.50us non guyanese)

so you are not eating?
no i jus want a cup of coffee
ok. well take it
take the coffee and make yourself comfortable

note to self: always listen to women, if and when you feel like🙂

she looked at me and smiled
i was puzzled but i loved the fact that she took a command decision and gave away the people’s coffee
she went about setting tables and places
i thought of my agenda and poured a nice cup of free coffee

don’t ask for the name of the place cause I ain tellin
all uh we got we own luck as they say

we exchanged pleasantries out the door as i rushed off to implement a portion of my scunt i jus thought about
aka my agenda

a woman friend of a friend asked me how many children i have
i said zero
she asked again and gave me that look
zero is still the magic number
not sure what her agenda be but mine remains the same

if Guyana got 50 more people like the lady who give way the boss coffee we be free by noon Saturday

I could see her leading a batallion against the enemy on that long march to freedom

Kwame Ture says our job is not to make the unconscious conscious but to make them conscious of their unconscious behaviour. 

i saw courtney crum-ewing family today
thursday something will happen in the court house regarding the man they say had the gun that kill courtney
the police have their agenda but it’s not for me to label it
one pulled me over today
i asked him what the scunt for but in more diplomatic terms
he made up a crime
i asked him what it meant
he said something else i didnt understand
they gave me a date at court 7 august 30
i’ve missed at least five previoys dates with the police in court
not counting the ones where they changed their minds about me

as crum-ewing family await justice the police pursuing anil nandlall’s agenda
to call that scunt would upset the powers that be

do something different in the name of social cohesion

55 companies in violation of Georgetown city by laws #guyana

this letter just deals with one section of queenstown. not the whole of georgetown!

Dear Editor,
In Kaieteur News of the 23rd July, 2016 I expressed my support and welcomed the decision of the City Councillors to set up a “National Capital Planning Commission to guide the development of the City”. That day has not yet arrived. However, It is hoped that the commissioners will each be provided with a copy of the Georgetown Building By-laws made under the Municipal and District Councils Act Chapter 28:01 and be guided thereby.
The conjoint effect of By Laws 67 — 70 of the Georgetown Building By-Laws mandate firstly, that “No building to be used… for any manufacturing, trade or business shall be erected or built on any lot” (east of Oronoque Street) secondly, “no such building shall be used for any such purpose aforesaid”.
The area “East of Oronoque Street” is bounded on the West by Oronoque Street, on the East by Irving Street, on the North by Lamaha Street and on the South by Church Street which includes from West to East Oronoque, New Garden, Peter Rose and Irving Streets; from North to South — Lamaha, Anira, Laluni, Crown, Lance Gibbs, Forshaw and Church Streets.
