Linesmen and other senior personnel from the Linden Utilities Services Cooperative Society Limited (LUSCSL) were busy yesterday, checking power lines in Blue Berry Hill. They also removed a transformer to thoroughly investigate what may have been responsible for an electrical surge that killed popular Linden footballer Troy Richards, 32, Bob Feller Indians Jersey, known as “Kang”, on Thursday evening.Richards’s girlfriend, Adjoua DukeAccording to residents of the area, it is not the first time that the community has been hit by a power surge. They say that the same thing had occurred two years ago, and many electrical appliances were damaged by it. However, no one had died then.”The last time was day time, and the current just come on after a blackout. When people put on they appliances, the things get burn up. But this time was still blackout, yet people earth rods was catching afire and people was getting shock in de house.“Is a good thing people didn’t gone to bed, or a lot of people woulda dead. Now when is blackout, people ain’t safe no more; you got to run out de house, ” a visibly perturbed resident reported.One woman said that her husband had to dash outside to get sand to douse the fire that had erupted on the earth rod and had “walked” straight to their electrical stove. She said that she is not sure whether the stove will still work, as power had not yet been restored to the area.Residents claimed that the power outage had occurred at around 15:00 hours during a brief but heavy downpour. “All we hear is the transformer go “boom!” during the thunder and lighting — and was blackout.According to reports, electricity was later restored to the area for about five minutes, at around 19:00 hours. “The lights come on bright, bright. All dem bulbs dat didn’t working come on.”The “surge” sent many people dashing to unplug their electrical appliances, but most of them had to change their minds and run outside after they received minor electrical shocks. Some people reportedly took sticks and lashed off the electrical cables to their houses, after fire was seen emanating from ground wires.Troy Richards was not so lucky, however, as the young man was “grounded” after he attempted to unplug the refrigerator at his girlfriend’s house at 998 Blue Berry Hill.His distraught girlfriend, Adjoua Duke, said that Troy had gone to her house after buying gasoline for her motorcycle. “I told him to go and collect the bike, and when he came back, I told him the neighbour’s yard was on fire, and he said ‘Plug out everything?’ and I told him ‘no’, that the fridge was still plugged in, as I couldn’t reach the plug.”“He went to the kitchen and he said, ‘You know, before you do these things you suppose to put on rubber slippers, ’ and I didn’t even tell he put on he shoes, ” Duke said as she broke down in tears. The inconsolable young woman had to be taken to the Linden Hospital Complex earlier in the day for medication to calm her down. Her mother, Pamela Duke, claimed that her daughter was severely traumatized after seeing her boyfriend electrocuted.”I have to keep a close eye on her, as this thing has really devastated her, ” the elder Duke said with concern. The elder Duke said that she was on her way home from Georgetown, where she attends classes, when she got the terrible news.Meanwhile, LUSCSL management said that they are currently investigating the matter to determine what may have caused the surge.LUSCSL personnel removed a transformer to thoroughly investigate what may have been responsible for the electrical surge(Enid Joaquin)

NEW YORK, USA — The assistant secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Albert Ramdin, says the power of dialogue should not be underestimated in the handling of global, regional or domestic disputes.Speaking at a Ministerial Breakfast of the Group of Friends of Mediation, during the UN General Assembly in New York last week, Ramdin said, “Far too often, we are inclined to take immediate and confrontational actions, in response to a perceived threat or conflict. Yet recent cases around the world and right here in the Americas, have demonstrated the power of dialogue to mitigate tensions.”Chaired by the ministers of foreign affairs of Finland and Turkey, the Group of Friends of Mediation Ministerial Breakfast was convened to launch the most recent report by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon titled, “Strengthening The Role Of Mediation In The Peaceful Settlement Of Disputes, Conflict Prevention And Resolution.”Addressing the meeting, Wake Forest Demon Deacons Jerseys, Ramdin also emphasized the urgent need to develop more inclusive approaches to resolving differences.“We must ensure that all stakeholders affected by conflict are included in our mediation efforts, if we are to build a strong culture of peace and dialogue in our societies, ” he said, adding “capacity for conflict management and dispute resolution also needs to be built within countries and international organizations so they can respond when the need arises.”The assistant secretary general also pointed to the need to improve cooperation mechanisms among international organizations and called on all representatives present at the meeting to remain committed to an inclusive approach, ensuring continued consultation with all sectors of society, including vulnerable groups, youth, women, the private sector and civil society.The aim of the Group of Friends of Mediation meeting at the UN was to raise awareness within the international community about the importance of mediation as a means of conflict prevention and resolution.Last week, foreign ministers and heads of regional organizations from around the world gathered to discuss ways to increase cooperation among regional organizations and civil society in the field of peace mediation. Present at the Ministerial Breakfast were high-level representatives from 33 countries and five regional organizations.

It appears that the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA) adopted a “free-for-all’ approach in its management of the billion dollar sector as it allowed a chain of gas station services to operate without licences.This is according to the recently published forensic audit report on the GEA which was prepared by Nigel Hinds Financial Services.The forensic auditing team found that GEA issued invoices for licence fees to three of the seven service stations belonging to Two Brothers Corp.But based on its examination of GEA records, the auditors revealed that there was no evidence that any of the three service stations were issued retail licences for the period under review.The auditors were basically facing a situation where GEA gave the impression that Two Brothers paid for the licences but the company never got them.Two Brothers gas stationThe team concluded in no uncertain terms that none of the Two Brothers Corp. Service Stations were operating with retail licences for the review period. The auditors even elaborated a bit more on this front.They said that based on the documents obtained and examined from the Two Brothers Group of Companies and/or any of its Directors, no evidence could be found that Two Brothers Corp. had ever been issued with any licence, with the exception of two.One was a Bulk transportation licence issued to Javed R. Ali, a Director of Two Brothers Corp. for vehicles GHH 5738 and GHH 6682. The other was a retail licence issued to Two Brothers Variety Shop located in Kumaka Water Front, North West District.Additionally, the forensic auditors discovered that GEA’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Mahender Sharma had issued a letter dated August 17, 2015, captioned “Petroleum License Fees” to Mr. Javed Ali, along with invoice # 1507/002 for retail licensing fees. The total amount of that invoice was $1.4M.But what baffled the auditing team was the fact that not a single shred of evidence could be found to prove that Two Brothers Corp. paid the invoiced amount as of October 26, Taylor Mays College Jersey, 2015.The auditors stressed that Two Brothers Services Stations should not be allowed to operate without GEA retail licences. They recommended that this be corrected.
