MP urges abused women to seek help

first_imgIn just under five months, the lives of at least five women were snatched at the hands of their lovers and has sprouted worry among almost every Guyanese.Opposition Member of Parliament, Priya ManickchandDead: Omawattie WaziDead: Zaila SugrimFormer Education Minister Priya Manickchand, who was at the forefront of a number of legislation to protect women’s rights when she was Human Services Minister andDead: Farida KhayumOpposition Member of Parliament (MP), has been very vocal on violence against women and was, in fact, representing a young mother, who was found dead earlier this month.Manickchand said that she is deeply saddened over that specific tragedy which will leave five children parentless as the father is likely to face the full brunt of the law for confessing to the heinous act.She was, however, keen to note that there are many factors which result in such a mishap occurring, some of which may include the woman’s financial dependency on a man. In this regard, the MP stated that the law provides for women to be compensated by the male they were with if they would like to exit an abusive relationship.According to the attorney-at-law, a woman can be granted, “Maintenance for you and children; an occupation order [which] means he has to leave the house irrespective of who owns it or how it came to be your house. In other words, if his parents gave him the house or if it is in his name, an occupation order would allow you to live there without his presence and a tenancy order [which] means that even if the agreement of tenancy is in his name, the court can order it be put in your name”.Additionally, these women can also “gain custody of their children, orders prohibiting him from hitting, speaking to or coming anywhere near where the victim live or works as well as take half or 1/3 of all you own together even if it is all registered in his name”.The MP has appealed to women being abused to seek help as there is currently legal aid available in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Five (Mahaica-Berbice), Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) and in Georgetown, Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica).On May 17, a 39-year-old woman was stabbed to death by her husband during an argument at their Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) home. Dead is Farida Khayum, a mother of six of Lot 9 Market Street, Anna Regina. Her husband has since been charged for murder.Mere days before, Zaila Sugrim, Manickchand’s client, was allegedly murdered by her husband and buried in a shallow grave near his Crane Village, West Coast Demerara home. The woman and the suspect had separated for over eight months but their union brought forth five children. According to relatives, the mother of five endured 15 years of an abusive marriage.Reports are Sugrim was last seen at the Vreed-en-Hoop Stelling on May 11, 2019, when she allegedly entered a motorcar with her estranged husband.Sugrim left her brother’s Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD) house, where she had been living for the past eight months, to be picked up by her estranged husband to visit the businessman’s home where she was expected to celebrate her eldest child’s birthday. However, by nightfall, the family became worried since it was very unusual for her not to call if she was out for long periods.Her brother, Ahmad Haniff, grew worried and called her cellphone but the phone was turned off. Repeated attempts to reach Sugrim on her mobile proved futile and other family members confirmed that they had not heard from the woman.On May 12, 2019, the worried brother visited the Diamond Police Station where he filed a missing person’s report. In the company of several police officers, a visit was made to his sister’s estranged husband’s home but they were informed that he had not seen Zaila nor did he want anything to do with her.Reports are close relatives reportedly inspected CCTV footage of the home but a particular time period was deleted. This was reported to Sugrim’s relatives, who in turn informed Police ranks. This led to ranks swooping down on the suspect’s La Grange, WBD property where a search was carried out, however, nothing was found.After relatives made additional reports at the Diamond Police Station, another group of ranks swooped down on the suspect’s Crane home.It was not until a search of the suspect’s motorcar was conducted by the police that they received a break in the case after blood was allegedly spotted in the car’s trunk. This prompted Police to arrest the suspect and impound the car.After much interrogation, the suspect allegedly broke down and reportedly informed the investigators that he had buried the body in a shallow grave near his home.In March, 20-year-old Omawattie Wazi called “Agile” of Lot 33 D Williamsburg, Rose Hall Town, Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), was killed by her husband.Reports are Wazi and the suspect, Gavin Gill, had been living at Port Mourant Village for a year but she moved to her mother’s Williamsburg, Rose Hall Town home after her husband of 14 months became abusive.Guyana Times was told that the young mother moved out with her seven-month-old baby and started working. On March 30, at about 07:55h while on her way to work, her husband struck her down with his car. She was riding a bicycle at the time. This publication understands that the man then exited the car with a knife and stabbed her several times before chopping her with a cutlass.last_img read more

Johnstone’s Paint Trophy 2016: Barnsley 3-2 Oxford: Tykes turn it around to win

first_img1 Barnsley came back from a goal down to defeat Oxford United 3-2 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley.Callum O’Dowda had given The U’s a first-half lead but three goals in 23 minutes, including a Chey Dunkley own goal and strikes from Ashley Fletcher and Adam Hammill saw the Tykes turn the game around.Danny Hylton did get a second goal for Oxford but in the end it was futile as the League One side beat their League Two opponents to lift the trophy.After an even opening to the clash at Wembley, United’s Irish midfielder, O’Dowda, nodded in Alex MacDonald’s right-wing cross with 28 minutes on the clock.It could have been 2-0 not long after but Kemar Roofe’s shot was blocked by Alfie Mawson, while Barnsley rallied with chances from Sam Winnall and Hammill.Just six minutes into the second period, the Tykes got themselves on level terms as Dunkley nodded into his own net while under pressure from Winnall.Lloyd Isgrove then went close for Barnsley as they turned the screw on their opponents but it was Manchester United loanee Ashley Fletcher who got their second as he followed up an Ivan Toney effort and forced the ball home.Oxford nearly equalised immediately in a thrilling match at Wembley but Liam Sercombe’s shot was blocked by Adam Davies.That intervention allowed Barnsley – under the supervision of caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom – to snatch a third, and it was the best of the bunch as Hammill, a product of Liverpool’s academy, curled a stunning right-foot shot beyond Benji Buchel after dancing through a couple of Oxford tackles.Danny Hylton’s header from Roofe’s excellent cross made the score 3-2 with 14 minutes remaining but the Yellows couldn’t quite give the match a final dramatic twist, as Barnsley intelligently wound the clock down at every opportunity, allowing them to win the match and lift the trophy at Wembley.

A league of their own

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Michael never did it. Neither did Magic, Kareem, or Larry. The 80 point plateau has only been surpassed by two men – Kobe and Wilt. In a group where last names are unnecessary and each legend will be remembered for more than one otherworldly feat on the Hardwood, how are we to define the “greatest performance ever.” According to Sports Illustrated, The 81 barely cracks the top ten in “The NBA’s All-Time Best Performances,” squeaking in at nine. Not surprisingly, the sweetest game on that list transpired in Hershey, PA. When I think of amazing individual performances, four games come to mind – Wilt’s Century Mark; Kobe’s demolition of the Raptors; MJ’s flu-ridden 38 in Game Five of Finals 1997, capped by the game-winning three; and Magic’s 42 and 15 in Game 6 of Finals 1980, winning the title as a rookie, sans Kareem. Each more unique and odd-defying than the others. But the bottom line is, one cannot be deemed “great” for playing a game. What makes an athlete great is the ability to show in a 40-60 minute window his resolve as a man, as a teammate, and as a leader. Under this criterion, Kobe’s record setting night ranks third on the aforementioned list, behind Mike and Magic, deadlocked at the number one spot because both were playing against heavy odds on basketball’s biggest stage, the Finals. Wilt was an extraordinary player, and scoring 100 points, no matter the era, the competition, the venue, or the stakes, is nothing short of breathtaking. But in my eyes, overcoming true adversity in front of thousands of people is the true measure of an inspiring performance. Comparisons between January 22, 2006, and March 2, 1962, are like comparing David vs. Goliath to Ruben vs. Clay – they’re just not on the same wavelength. To say that Kobe’s 81 was better than Wilt’s 100, or vice versa, based on statistics is extremely misleading. About the only thing Kobe has in common with Wilt on the basketball court is tremendous ego. But whether analyzing single games or broad achievements, will and determination stand out in defining legendary players. And Kobe, His Airness, and Magic rescued their teams in these games out of necessity, whereas Wilt’s game was jaw-dropping for the sake of being jaw-dropping.

MICKEY THE POSTMAN MIGHT BE RIGHT AS SNOW COULD BE ON WAY FOR CHRISTMAS

first_imgDONEGAL will see snow this Christmas, according to forecasters.Forecasters say we will get some snow on the hills today and some more on Christmas Eve.And some of them say we will get snow on Christmas Day – and that could prove amateur weatherman and postman Michael Gallagher correct! Michael, who studies nature to predict the weather, had been dismissed as a crank by RTE forecaster Evelyn Cusack in a number of broadcasts.But whether or not his methods are correct, forecasters from Met Eireann, the BBC and the UK Met Office and online sites are all pointing to a windy – and snowy – Christmas for Donegal this year.Geoff Maskell from the BBC said gales will lash the North West over the next few days, with a storm expected on Monday.He said there will be snow on Sunday morning – and again on Sunday evening. And there will be more snow on Tuesday, Christmas Eve, with a chance of some snow in the North West on Christmas Day.However most of it will fall on higher ground.Here’s Met Eireann’s forecast until December 26Very disturbed weather through the next week with some extremely windy or stormy periods likelyCold on Saturday evening and overnight with further showers, mostly in southwestern, western and northern counties, some turning wintry in places overnight.Sharp frost developing with icy stretches on untreated surfaces and overnight lows of around zero.Sunday will be very cold with blustery westerly winds and occasional wintry showers. Falls of sleet and snow are likely – especially in the west and north of the country. Cold and frosty for a time Sunday night, but temperatures rising overnight as more heavy rain and strong winds spread countrywide by Monday morning.Monday: Potentially stormy on Monday and into Monday night, as heavy rain and gale force southerly winds give way to colder showery conditions with gale force southwest winds with severe squalls, which may cause some structural damage in places.Cold, very windy and showery on Christmas Eve, some showers possibly wintry on higher ground of the northwest. Afternoon highs of 5 to 7 degrees.Cold and frosty overnight.Latest indications suggest a frosty start to Christmas morning. The day is expected to be cold and bright day with some showers especially in the south and west with another milder, wet and extremely windy or stormy period expected on St Stephen’s day. MICKEY THE POSTMAN MIGHT BE RIGHT AS SNOW COULD BE ON WAY FOR CHRISTMAS was last modified: December 20th, 2013 by John2Share 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:Donegal Dailysnowweatherlast_img read more

‘DAD, DONEGAL HAVE JUST TROUNCED DUBLIN TWICE’ – A SMILE FELL ACROSS JIM WHITE’S FACE

first_imgThe late Jim White.An taoiseach Enda Kenny with Donegal Town Mayor; Patricia Callaghan and husband Vincent at the gravesideThe remains enter the Church carried by Marcus White, Paul Kennedy, David Giblin and Edward GilliganBy PAUL O SULLIVANJim White was finally laid to rest in his hometown of Ballyshannon at 3.45pm this afternoon. The owner of 9 hotels often said that “the best house was a full house” and even in death the wiley hotelier managed to pack St Anne’s church with as many outside as in. Graciously posing for a photo prior to entering the church, An taoiseach, Enda Kenny told me that ” Jim White was an extraordinary man of great talent and ambition”. The people of Donegal Town paid a fitting farewell earlier as crowds lined the cortege route from the Abbey Hotel right around the Diamond and down Quay St.Kieran Kennedy from the Ardaghey Pipe Band led the cortege. He and his family have a long association with Abbey Hotel ( brother Paul went to work there aged 16 and 30 years later he is still there).Jim’s remains were waked in the hotel all day Thursday which has seen countless weddings and baptisms over the years. However this was the first wake, completing the circle of life “from the cradle to the grave” Former Manager of the Central Hotel sang one of Jim’s favourite songs “The Old Rugged Cross” as the wake drew to a close at 11pm.His own people of Ballyshannon turned out in their hundreds as the horse drawn cortege trotted through the streets he grew up in. As the remains were carried into the church, Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” rang out through the PA system. It summed up perfectly the man’s life whose father died at 14 and his mother two years later. He went on to build an empire that has survived the worst recession this country has ever seen. Always self effacing, he attributed his success to the “dedication, talent and loyalty” of the people around him.The uplifting service in St Anne’s was conducted by Rev Henderson assisted by Rev Mitchell. Marcus White paid a glowing tribute to his “father, best friend and emperor” interspersed in equal measures of laughter and heartbreak. Fittingly, Ann Barrett and Danny O Donnell, two of Jim’s longest serving employees (from their teens) read the readings while Farah Bogle sang beautifully as did former Central Hotel manager Eamonn Gillespie.The Abbey Hotel is hosting its’ 20th Country Music Weekend starting tonight (Friday). Jim White left clear instructions for it to go ahead and so it shall. Finally, on Sunday night when Jim was entering the Departure Lounge of this life, one of his children whispered in his ear: “Donegal just trounced the Dubs twice” – a slight smile acknowledging the news.The Donegal Team have a long association with the Abbey Hotel and as usual they will be “fed and watered” on Sat 20th Sept. before boarding the bus to Dublin.To a man, they’ll do it for both Jims. ‘DAD, DONEGAL HAVE JUST TROUNCED DUBLIN TWICE’ – A SMILE FELL ACROSS JIM WHITE’S FACE was last modified: September 6th, 2014 by John2Share 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:donegalfuneralGAAJim Whitelast_img read more
