Hardships after closure of sugar estates

No Comments

first_imgDear Editor,From what I have seen in the media and during my visits, the people in the community of Wales and its environs are suffering untold hardships because of the shutdown of the Guyana Sugar Corporation’s (GuySuCo) operations there simply because it was done without proper structure.The suffering and hardships are mirrored in every facet of the sugar-producing district where GuySuCo has slammed the doors shut on sugar workers. This is precisely why I wrote, before and after the closure of our major sugar estates, that there will be serious repercussions for the entire country if sugar production is cut and the factories closed.Sugar workers are not the only ones suffering. What about the sudden decline of spin-off businesses? What about the drastic drop in spending power among jobless sugar workers? What about farmers and grocers whose income depended largely on sales to sugar workers and their families; the people who produce or who are vendors of milk, chicken, fish, vegetables etc?What if many of the unemployed former sugar workers turn to producing cash crops and cause a glut in the market? Prices will fall, sales will dry up and there will be more widespread hardships. This will affect other cash crop growers and, inevitably, lead to more theft and other crimes.I am very sad that Government apparently did not do due diligence studies before closing the sugar estates. This failure has unleashed a multitude of terrible penalties and crushed the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in Guyana.In my opinion, those who pushed hard for the closure of the estates might have had sinister motives. For instance, we saw the son-in law of a senior member of the Alliance For Change trying vigorously to sell off Skeldon and other sugar estates via business connections he made in the Caribbean and further afield.I believe Government made a tremendous mistake by closing the estates. Even Government officials and supporters are admitting that they cannot sell non-functioning estates at the sale prices they had expected, so the rewards or compensation will be too small. Why didn’t they think of this before?It is common knowledge that if one has to sell something like a car; it must be working properly before one can get the best price. Why didn’t the sellers of our sugar estates use the ordinary man’s marketing technique, called common sense, instead of just closing the estates and putting them up for sale?It seems that some of our politicians want to do the same thing that was done back in the post-colonial era when former (then) Prime Minister Forbes Burnham sold out our train system to a British company that later sold it to an African nation for many times what Guyana was paid for it.It is known that PM Burnham regretted that decision. Imagine the great benefits of a local train system today; think of the modernisation and expansion. Trains (street cars) would have been traversing the city streets, like they do in Amsterdam, San Francisco, Toronto, Germany and all across Guyana. Motor cars would not have been necessary within the city and the air pollution, the glut and the smog would not have been an issue. Our people would not have been so dependent on unreliable, unregulated minibuses.Now I am seeing the same dilemma with the closure of the GuySuCo estates. Reactivating the abundant lands to make them ready for sugar planting once more will call for a tremendous financial investment. That is why I was saying: If you wish to sell, keep the estates alive and churning while looking for a market.Otherwise, diversify using former sugar factories for milk production, milk processing, converting milk to powdered milk or evaporated or condensed milk. Let’s learn from countries with flat lands like our coastal plane, like the Dutch. Unlike the Dutch, we are lucky in that we do not have winter here.What will happen to the non-functioning estates? Are we going to leave the machinery and equipment to grind to a complete halt so that they rot and are torn apart by vagrants?Why not use the non-functioning estates to produce powdered and canned coconut milk or canned and bottled coconut jelly and water; canned fruits like jack fruit and cane pieces steeped in cane juice; soaps and detergents? We had a golden opportunity to partner with the same countries and people who were and are interested in buying us out for nothing. I know it’s hard because maybe the people in the Government are not business-oriented.Since, we were being hit by big losses in the sugar industry, it would have been far more worthwhile for us to invest in exploring different diversification options to keep our people employed, rather than close the estates and throwing workers to the wolves.Also, if you have to sell, wouldn’t it be easier to sell fully operational estates rather than defunct factories? Didn’t they learn from Burnham? He did not intend to do a bad thing when he closed the railway and nationalised industries. But look what happened?Burnham thought he was doing a good thing. But we were not mature; we were not ready for nationalisation. The Marxist-Leninist system had heavily influenced both he and the late President Cheddi Jagan and they thought we had the ability to manage our resources.We lacked and still lack proper managerial skills for such vast industries.They did not take into consideration that our people are not accustomed to that kind of administration, so the communities and the people of the nation suffered. The people will continue to suffer even more if we do not act wisely and reverse what is happening with the closed sugar estates.Sincerely,Roshan Khan Srlast_img read more

Solari pledges to continue after Madrid dumped out by Ajax

first_img0Shares0000Welshman Gareth Bale failed to stop Real Madrid being knocked out of the last 16 of the Champions League © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOMADRID, Spain, Mar 6 – Santiago Solari vowed to fight on but the reign of Real Madrid in Europe is over and their season effectively is too after they were stunned by a 4-1 defeat at home to Ajax on Tuesday.In seven days, Madrid have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey, La Liga’s title race and now the last 16 of the Champions League, the competition they had come to believe was their own. They had won it three times in a row, four times in the last five years, while the last time Madrid failed to reach the quarter-finals was 2010, in Cristiano Ronaldo’s first year at the club.Ronaldo rescued them last season in the quarter-finals and then Gareth Bale won them the trophy, but the former is gone and the latter started on the bench here, dropped again by Solari.Solari oversaw an improvement after Julen Lopetegui was sacked in November but his team, 12 points behind Barcelona in La Liga, have watched their season unravel in a week.Madrid president Florentino Perez is now faced with deciding whether it is worth keeping his coach until the end of the season, let alone beyond the summer.“I did not come to the club in such a difficult moment to give up,” Solari said afterwards.He could have few complaints. Ajax were hard-done-by in the 2-1 first-leg defeat and dominant at the Santiago Bernabeu, their scintillating victory confirming a 5-3 win on aggregate and a place in the quarter-finals. On this evidence, they can go further.Hakim Ziyech and David Neres put them two up at half-time and the excellent Dusan Tadic made it three before Marco Asensio gave Madrid hope. It lasted two minutes, as Lasse Schone sent a bending free-kick into the top corner before Nacho was sent off in injury-time.“The week has been hard for us,” said Nacho. “We have practically said goodbye to the league, the cup and today was like a final in the Champions League.”“I’ve never felt as sick as this, I don’t know how to explain it,” said Dani Carvajal.Bale was on after 29 minutes for the injured Lucas Vazquez but hit the post and then missed two good chances. Sergio Ramos was in the stands, having earned a deliberate booking to clear a ban, believing this tie was already won.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘He’s got everything!’ – Slaven Bilic backs Dimitri Payet to improve West Ham squad

He’s the kind of player I thought we really needed, that’s going to make every player better than they actually are.“He’s got everything. He likes to take responsibility.“He was my number one target and I am grateful to chairman that we got him. And it was done like that – not in four weeks.“He’s doing really well at the moment. Not only him but all the guys but you ask about him.“It may go a bit up and down. But we’re going to help him and he’s going to help us.”last_img read more

GOLF NEWS: BRENDAN GALLAGHER COMES OUT ON TOP AT OTWAY

No Comments

first_imgOtway Golf NewsAfter a busy winter so far at Otway, a big percentage of members have either bagged a bird or snared a hamper, with only the chance of a bottle to wash it all down with left to play for this Sunday 21st.Last Saturday members battled it out for the festive hampers, and after the usual stories of lucky chip-ins, a ball stuck in a tree (in Otway ???) and extended placing, a winner was declared in Brendan Gallagher on BoT from Noel Fisher who took second spot. Philip Friel claimed the gross prize, and Noel Kiernan took third, with the nines going to Dave Hughes and Peter Friel. The absence of ‘Rathmullan’ winners was balanced up somewhat in the Sunday scramble when Pat McNulty and Damian Gallagher bagged a bird, joined by Ballyare’s Patsy Gallagher. Congratulations to all the winners and participants who just keep trying, and the committee wish all it’s members and guests a very happy and healthy Christmas and a peaceful new year!

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Newcastle 0

No Comments

first_imgOscar struck against the run of play just before half-time to give Chelsea a barely deserved lead at the break.Newcastle had been the brighter side for much of the first half, as a Blues defence – which included Petr Cech in goal and Kurt Zouma at centre-back – struggled with the Magpies’ pace.Cech was called upon early on to field a tame Moussa Sissoko effort and Remy Cabella also saw a shot blocked as Newcastle carried a constant threat.Cech made good saves from Yoann Gouffran’s free-kick and Cabella’s drive, while Sissoko hit the outside of the post.A disjointed Chelsea had struggled to carve out any clear-cut chances until Newcastle switched off at a short corner.Willian fed Branislav Ivanovic on the byline and he drilled the ball across the box to Oscar, who lashed home via keeper Tim Krul’s outstretched leg.Willian came close to doubling the lead in first-half injury time but Krul was equal to his free-kick.Cesar Azpilicueta limped off midway through the half, and was replaced by Filipe Luis. Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Courtois, Cahill, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Ramires, Remy, Drogba. Newcastle: Krul; Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett; Sissoko, Anita, Colback; Cabella, Perez, Gouffran.Subs: Woodman, Santon, Haidara, Ameobi, Vuckic, Armstrong, Riviere.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
