Home Letters Hypocrisy of Moses Nagamootoo keeps unveiling
I write in response to the claims made by Guyana’s current “caretaker” Prime Minister on “an online broadcast” condemning the international community and accusing them of “using Guyana as a pawn in a political game of chess aimed at toppling the Nicolas Maduro Government in neighbouring Venezuela.” It is the very same Moses Nagamootoo and the coalition APNU/AFC who publicly back in the 2015 General and Regional Elections used the very same international community to put pressure on the then Chair of GECOM and GECOM itself. Nagamootoo didn’t back then, condemn any of the actions taken by the international community.
This is the very same Nagamootoo that claimed Guyana was a “donkey cart economy” under the governing of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) and yet when he took power as Prime Minister he did nothing but make the economy the exact “donkey cart economy” that he claimed it was back then. The man took office along with the rest of the coalition Cabinet members and in the first 100 days raised his (Nagamootoo) and their salary by 50 per cent and passed bills that allowed him and his “cabals” to buy “20-40 million dollars” valued vehicles, for their transportation. All of that money for doing absolutely nothing at that point in time only for being sworn in as Prime Minister and Ministers back then. Is that making the economy any better?
It’s the very same Nagamootoo that conceded defeat, after the very historic night of December 21, 2020, when the No-Confidence Motion was passed by the Parliament of Guyana, and I quote the then Prime Minister “The outcome has to be accepted.” And then he (Nagamootoo) miraculously came up with a formula about “absolute and simple majority” saying the No-Confidence Motion (NCM) wasn’t “properly passed”. The current interim Prime Minister’s hometown of Whim Village – the residents didn’t even cast 50 per cent of their votes in his (Nagamootoo) favour in the last Local Government Election and it was even worse at the 2020 General Elections. Even his “own people” don’t want to give him power. He has deceived his very own Region Six by shutting down the sugar estates.
It all justifies why the current Prime Minister left the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C). It is because he couldn’t have done what he has done in the past 5 years when he was with the PPP/C. To readers, it is justified that hypocrisy is the only word that describes the actions of the current “caretaker” Prime Minister.
