Delivering his budget speech, Mr. Rohee highlighted that the only visible sign of steady progress in Guyana are the ones made by the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C).
In fact, Rohee said it seems as if the Government is suffering from an optical illusion where they are living in their own bubble and believing their own propaganda.
Rohee told the Government that the clock is ticking for them to get the governance of the country right.
Turning his attention to the security sector, Rohee questioned the status of the various projects announced by the Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan. These include the establishment of a command centre, a group of police officers to deal with domestic violence, among others. He also questioned whether Ramjattan will uphold his promise to present the protocols for The Special Organized Crime Unit (SOCU) as he had undertaken to do.
Rohee lamented that crime is on the increase in the country and that the public has lost all confidence in the police force.
