She eventually saw her husband coming towards their home.Sometime later, she heard the sound of water falling and, on going down stairs she saw her husband washing blood from his hand.  She asked him what was wrong and he told her that persons unknown had beaten him.âI asked him to show me his injuries but he did not allow me. I then telephoned his brother, Charrandan Maiku, and told him what he told me. I also told him that his brother needed to be taken to the doctor. Subsequently his brother arrived and left after he summarized that his brotherâs condition was not serious.She said that the brother left a telephone number and told her that should his brotherâs condition worsen he must be contacted.The woman stated that during the time Yodha who was left lying under the house got up and started to âcurse me, using the vilest of languages.  I told him he should have gone to the doctor with his brother. I then took my medication and fell asleep.ââWhen I saw Yodha again he was not where I had last seen him. He was silent. I thought he was asleep. I called him but he did not respond to my calls.âI then called his brother, Wholesale NFL China Jerseys, who came and left to contact the police. He then returned with officers Jacques and Bristol, before whom I repeated my story.âShe stated that she was arrested and taken into custody.  She was subsequently charged.The case has been adjourned to Thursday when the prosecution and the defence are expected to sum up their case to the jury.The woman, of Bennett Dam, Rosignol, West Berbice, is alleged to have killed her husband, Yodha, called âRamsook Maikhoo, â a fish vendor, on April 27, 2008 following a misunderstanding at their home.

â¦Dr. Luncheon says itâs a Party matterThe Guyana Government will not be making any pronouncements any time soon, on the resignation of Senior Counsel Ralph Ramkarran, from the ruling Peoplesâ Progressive Party (PPP).At least this is according to official Government spokesman, Dr Roger Luncheon, yesterday.Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr Roger LuncheonHe was at the time hosting a Saturday morning post Cabinet press briefing at Office of the President.According to the Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Ramkarran did not hold a position with the government or within the Administration and as such, it is not a matter for the government to speak on.He said that âbecause Mr. Ramkarran, the former Speaker was not holding a position in the administration, the resignation is more a matter of the governing party and not necessarily a matter for the administration.âDr. Luncheon contended, âWhat has been said by the official spokespersons for the governing PPP is out there in the public domain.âHe said that the resignation, according to the spokespersons for the PPP, is something that they would like to see reversed.Dr. Luncheon said that he was not in a position to make any pronouncements on whether the party and Ramkarran are engaged in any talks.Efforts to contact Ramkarran yesterday proved futile but during the course of the week the Senior Counsel has refused to comment on the matter.This publication understands that the Central Executive of the party has been meeting weekly and ever since the resignation it has been a matter actively engaging its attention.At the end of last month, in a one line letter addressed to President Donald Ramotar, who is the partyâs General Secretary, Ramkarran said that he had resigned with immediate effect.âI tender my resignation from the Peoples Progressive Party.âThe party subsequently responded by apologizing and extending an âolive branch.âSenior Counsel and Former Executive Member of the PPP, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, Ralph RamkarranThe President when asked to speak on the matter initially said that Ramkarran made his decision âat the spur of the moment.âAs a result, he said he hopes that when Ramkarranâs anger subsides he would return to the party which he served for five decades.

Guyanaâs ability to generate all its power from renewable sources was revealed at a workshop hosted by the Caribbean Policy Research Institute (CaPri) in collaboration with the Caribbean Community Secretariat (CARICOM). The forum was held at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre on Friday.The workshop saw attendance by representatives from both the public and private sector fraternities. Discussions were held as they provided insights and made contributions on issues surrounding renewable energy development in Guyana.With funding from the European Union (EU), CaPRI has been analysing conditions needed for sustainable private-sector driven renewable energy investment in the Caribbean, and developing tools for private and public sector âactorsâ to progress on that direction.Dr. Suzanne Shaw, Project Manager for CaPRI, submitted a report that revealed that Guyanaâs average annual electricity consumption is 405 GWh; 37% being industrial, 45% residential and 18% commercial.âIn 2012, when we started the baseline work, four per cent of energy needs in Guyana were being met by renewable energy sources, primarily from bagasse, solar and wind with 96.3% coming from oil-based sources, â she pointed out.Renewable Energy projects such as Solar, wind and bagasse, her report shows, would benefit Guyana significantly since oil imports â for 2013 â shows 4.7M barrels per year with 1.65 for electricity generation alone which takes about US$500M, equivalent to 21% GDP.She also related that Guyana has set a target of 47% renewable energy for 2027 including projects to develop solar, wind and hydro, with oil-based sources reducing to 53%.âSo if you think about the things that renewable energy can contributeâ¦with very little land space for solar, wind and using the bagasse potential, these resources can meet 100% of Guyanaâs energy needs and offset a significant amount of oil consumption and Guyanaâs greenhouse gas emissions. Guyana has great potential to go 100% RE, â Shaw said.Present at the workshop was Vishnu Durga, Senior Vice-President of the Georgetown Chambers of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) who said that from a âGeorgetown Chamber perspectiveâ, they have placed renewable energy matters in a green economy, which he said has been running for several years at their chambers.He also highlighted that some of the issues that they have looked at in their green economy committee level, is to create a network of all the renewable energy players that they have in both Guyana and their memberships.âWe also looked at some of the hindrances to the further utilization of renewable energy. Some of the recent matters have been the absence of legislation that would allow reversible meters to be placed because many of our members have been moving closer to being powered or sufficiently powered by solar systemsâ, he said.Durga also said that since there has been a decline in cost for the technology being used to support RE, Wholesale NFL China Jerseys, he is forward for it being more accessible to both the private sector and consumers.âWe further see the use of renewable energy and the continued decline of costs for this technology, it has been declining over the years and we are looking forward to it being accessibleâ¦In the past years there have been removals of duty and taxes on items that would be used in this wayâ Durga stated.Although Guyanaâs power generation capacity is keeping up with demand, he said, a switch to more renewable energy would also give the utility company a bit more âbreathing spaceâ.He added that this switch may, most likely result in higher reliability, consistency, quality of power which is something he said his organisation and other private sector organisations have been looking forward to for years.
