This coupled with Coalition Government officials’ actions, which polarize our people via the circulation of racially inciteful material on social media and via other platforms, will lead to an intensification of uncertainty and ethnic disharmony.”He requested that the probe be treated expeditiously by the Commission and appropriate sanctions implemented to avert the perils of this dangerous path that the Coalition Government seems bent on leading Guyana down.last_img read more
