first_imgCommunity Policing Groups (CPGs) are established across the country to tackle small crimes and other issues within the villages; and now there have been requests for such groups to be established in Indigenous communities.Public Security Minister Khemraj RamjattanPublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan made this disclosure earlier this week when he stated that there is need for CPGs to be established in hinterland regions.“Indeed, Community Policing Groups are growing all across the country, and we’re having some more (established), especially (in) the entire heartland of Guyana; because we’ve seen the need for (them) in those areas. As a matter of fact, our Indigenous brothers and sisters have asked that we go in there to set up these groups,” Ramjattan stated.Along with that, he believes the older generation should get involved to guide youths who are willing to join the groups.“We would like those Indigenous communities’ young people, juniors and seniors, to also participate… We have to expand the horizons of Community Policing Groups to ensure that we have elders within these groups,” he declared.To date, there are 16 divisions: 210 policing groups, consisting of 4255 members in total. There has been an increase in the number of patrols, from 5765 in 2017 to 9182 in 2018. These were carried out by foot, vehicles and vessels.Earlier this year, it was announced that the presence of Community Policing Groups has been increased in border villages in order to amplify security in remote locations, where access to a law enforcement agency is absent.Mechanisms have been put in place to establish more community Policing Groups as well as Police Stations in Regions One (Barima-Waini), Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) and Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).“Community policing is premised on that philosophy whereby the community has that definite interest and therefore must perform that defined obligation… The efforts of Community Policing groups have been, in a way, helping to reduce the negatives of crimes,” Ramjattan was quoted as saying.Community Policing in Guyana commenced in the year 1976 with the aim of harnessing the energy of willing members of communities across Guyana in support of the work of the Police.Criminal activities have escalated in Guyana during the past months, capturing the attention of other countries. Although there have been more shoot-outs between the Police and bandits in recent days, and seemingly more robberies occurring, Police Commissioner Leslie James on Monday assured that there was no increase in crime.One week ago, the US State Department issued a stringent warning to all its citizens, urging them to exercise caution when visiting Guyana, owing to the evident spike in the country’s crime rate.last_img read more

first_imgGardaí have launched an investigation following an incident of dangerous driving which saw cars ‘diffing’ around a newly married couple on a busy Donegal road. It is believed the bizarre incident took place at the weekend, immediately after the couple had just got married in a nearby church.The ‘diffing’ takes place on the main road to Gortahork, just at the turn off for Magheraroarty. It also appears that cars have blocked off the road to other users to enable the driver to perform the act of ‘diffing’ around the happy couple.In the video, the motorist in the twin-cam begins driving at dangerous speeds in a circle around the bride and groom with burning rubber going everywhere.However, that’s clearly what the couple wanted and after the ‘diffing’ commences the wedding party simply continued on to their reception afterwards.Gardaí in Milford have launched an investigation into the incident and are keen to speak to those involved in such a dangerous act which could have gone badly wrong at any time.   GARDAÍ LAUNCH INVESTIGATION AFTER VIDEO EMERGES OF CARS ‘DIFFFING’ AROUND NEWLY MARRIED COUPLE was last modified: June 3rd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DiffingFeaturesGardaiinvestigationMarried CouplenewsTwin Camslast_img read more

first_img9 November 2011President Jacob Zuma, speaking at the launch of the Masibambisane Rural Development Initiative in Mkhondo local municipality in Mpumalanga province on Sunday, urged emerging farmers to use their farms to help create jobs and alleviate poverty in the country.He told community members that through agricultural projects initiated in the area, people could get jobs and poverty could be alleviated.“If you stand firm and make sure that these projects don’t fail in your hands, poverty can be alleviated and job creation can be high,” Zuma said. “We need to wake up and do things ourselves. Government is here to help you. People must not rely on [social] grants for a living when they have land.”Zuma co-founded the nationwide Masibambisane Rural Development Initiative with KwaZulu-Natal businessman Daebo Mzobe.On Sunday, he visited various agricultural projects that fall under the initiative around Piet Retief, handed over five houses, and also handed over the newly built Ezakheni Combined Boarding School in Donkerhoek. The school will accommodate children from child-headed families.‘Let the supermarkets buy from them’Zuma was accompanied by Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba, Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi and Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza.He promised that offices of the Masibambisane Rural Development Initiative would be built in Mpumalanga soon.“We have taken a resolution to build offices here in Mpumalanga, where Mpumalanga people can access them easily. We want people, including businessmen, to volunteer and boost projects in their communities.“We do not want the community to buy food from supermarkets, but let the supermarkets buy from them.”Mabuza promised that his administration would support the Masibambisane famers by buying food from them.“We will make sure that to sustain these projects, as government, we will buy food and vegetables for schools, hospitals and other government institutions.

first_imgAfter all the hassle during the World Cup earlier this year, Julen Lopetegui would now feel it was not worth it as his tenure as a Real Madrid coach came to an abrupt end late on Monday.He lasted just 140 days as the Real Madrid boss and was replaced by the Castilla manager Santiago Solari. He only managed 14 games at Real, the second least since Jose Antonio Camacho in 2004, who managed six games. He now has the lowest win percentage of the club’s last five managers, with just 42.86 during his 14 games in charge.Under Lopetegui, Real won four and lost four matches in the La Liga and drew two. In the Champions League, they won two and lost one but still top Group G.But, being at Real Madrid, this is not enough. You are expected to win all the games and losing these many matches usually means doom.Flashback to June, Spain were being considered as one of the top dogs for the World Cup, thanks to Lopetegui’s good work with the 2010 champions. However, all hell broke loose before La Roja’s first game of the tournament against Portugal when a surprise announcement from Florentino Perez took the Spanish FA by storm.Also read – Real Madrid sack Julen Lopetegui, appoint Santiago Solari interim coachBeing shaken himself a few weeks back after Zinedine Zidane decided to step down, Perez this time decided to knowingly or unknowingly…only he would know…surprise a few Spanish bosses. The Los Blancos president announced that Lopetegui will take over the reins at Real after the World Cup and all this happened while Spain were preparing for their first clash against Portugal and without Luis Rubiales’s being in the know how.advertisementAnd, that did not go down well with Rubiales — Lopetegui was sacked immediately with Fernando Hierro taking over as interim coach. Quite expectedly, Spain did not do well and were knocked out by hosts Russia in the Round of 16.But, this was none of Lopetegui’s concern it seemed. He was happy at Madrid and didn’t want any piece of what happened in Moscow. For him, it was about giving his best for Real Madrid and taking the club forward after three consecutive Champions League victories under Zinedine Zidane and powered by Cristiano Ronaldo.However, Ronaldo left for Juventus after nine successful years and Lopetegui had to pin his hopes on Welshman Gareth Bale and youngsters in Marco Asensio, Isco and their new No.7 in Mariano Diaz, who along with Vinicius Junior, were set to woo the crowd at the Santiago Bernabeu. Also, in came right-back Alvaro Odriozola from Real Sociedad and that was it for business.And, all was well in pre-season and Bale was scoring and it seemed that he is enjoying the freedom…away from the Ronaldo’s shadows. But, as the season kicked off, the goals dried up and after a point, not only Bale, no one was firing and that was when, Bernabeu realised what they were missing. Real Madrid lost 5-1 to Barcelona in the recent El Clasico (AP Photo)Real had made their worst start in years and two weeks back they lost to Levante to home to suffer their third straight loss in the Spanish top flight. Not only that, the club also set an unwanted record of 482 minutes without scoring a goal. Thankfully, Marcelo finally snapped their long spell without a goal by smashing into the net in the second half. But, they couldn’t rally from behind to get a point even against a much less-fancied Levante side.Lopetegui was hanging by a thread. After so much success, Perez and the Real fans were not going to take anything like this from their club. His next assignment was in the Champions League and his team did hold on to a 2-1 win against Czech side Plzen but the weekend’s El Clasico against Barcelona was going to be his litmus test…and he failed.Barcelona thrashed Real 5-1 and went eight points ahead of Real and sent them to No.9 in the league table — five points away from the fourth spot, currently held by Atletico Madrid, who have 19 points from 10 games.Time was up for him it seemed as links to former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte grew stronger. And, on Monday, his sob story finally came to an expected end.Lopetegui, therefore, became the coach to serve the least amount of time as Real coach since the turn of the millennium. Vicente Del Bosque served the most with 1,315 days to his name. The closest to Lopetgui in terms of least days served is Juande Ramos, who served as Real coach from 2008 to 2009. He was replaced by Manuel Pellegrini, who served a year from 2009 to 2010.advertisement Julen Lopetegui just managed 14 games at Real Madrid since taking over in June (AP Photo)The last three Real Madrid managers before Lopetegui were Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benitez and Zinedine Zidane. While Zidane served 879 days before walking away at the start of the season, Benitez managed Real for 216 days before getting the sack and Mourinho before that had managed Real for 1,101 days.With little or no options left, Real would be hoping to replace Lopetegui with someone, who can guide them out of the slump to begin with. With all the big names unavailable and Conte reportedly having refused for the time being, Real have the likes of Laurent Blanc, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez and even former Arsenal coach and out of job Arsene Wenger as well.But, for now, the charges remain with Solari and his first assignment will be versus Spanish second division side Melilla in the Copa del Rey.last_img read more
