Afro-Guyanese organizations are rightfully transitioning away from Alexander cabal

Dear Editor,
Mr. Vincent Alexander’s recent attempts to sway public opinion have been met with skepticism by Afro-Guyanese groups who have become increasingly aware of the dubious activities within the IDPADA-G framework. This includes the alarming allocation of taxpayers’ funds for inflated consultancy contracts benefitting close associates and relatives.
The ongoing discussions at the Permanent Forum on the People of African Descent have shed light on the glaring inadequacies of the IDPADA-G organization, which purports to represent the interests of Afro-Guyanese communities. However, it has become evident that Alexander and his cohorts have manipulated the process to serve their own agenda.
The recent decision by the Government to provide direct funding to Afro-Guyanese groups marks a welcome departure from the bureaucratic hurdles and preferential treatment established under Alexander’s leadership. Everyone should support mechanisms that eliminate the undue influence of paid consultants affiliated with the Alexander clique. It is imperative to question the true motives of figures like Alexander, who often target Afro-Guyanese individuals expressing dissenting views with vile and vicious attacks, including calling them “house slaves”. Are they genuinely championing Afro-Guyanese causes, or are they simply advancing their own political interests?
The infiltration of IDPADA-G by Opposition cronies underscores the organization’s transformation into a political facade, prioritising financial gain over genuine support for the Afro-Guyanese community.
Speaking from personal experience, I am well acquainted with Mr. Alexander’s history, particularly his pattern of victimising Afro-Guyanese individuals. His direct actions against me during his tenure as a lecturer at the University of Guyana stand as a constant reminder of his hypocrisy and disregard for the very community he claims to represent.
