Ebola Hits Weala Hard

first_imgSeveral residents in Weala Community, Margibi Country, have begun leaving their homes seeking refuge in surrounding communities as a result of the government’s failure to remove alleged dead Ebola victims’ bodies from the community.Speaking to the Daily Observer last Saturday at the administrative headquarters of Weala in Cinta Township, the youth chairman, Chris David, said since August 5, two persons mysteriously died and all efforts to have the corpses removed by the local administration, including health authorities,  have proved fruitless.He identified the two corpses as Ellietta and Boll Tate. He said the two died in separate communities in Weala. He named Peace Community and the only private health center, the “Weala Community Clinic” that caters to residents in the area.Due to the poor sanitary condition, Mr. David stated that the clinic is currently closed and community dwellers in the area, including Peace Island residents, are leaving their homes to seek a safer environment.The situation prompted the residents to set up a roadblock on the Kakata-Gbarnga highway to compel government to remove the two corpses.“We blocked the car road and stopped all plying objects to claim the government’s attention to our plight,” Mr. David explained. “Since four days now, the two dead persons’ bodies have been decomposing, and residents in these communities can no longer bear it. So they have had to move to another area for safety. We don’t know what killed them, whether Ebola or some other disease.  But no one wants to risk his/her life by being exposed to these corpses,” he explained.For her part, the head of the women’s orgaization in Weala, Madam Fatu Coleman, said since the pronouncement of President Sirleaf’s State of Emergency and the forbidding of people burying dead persons, they (residents) have been reluctant to bury anybody. She confirmed that when Ellietta and Boll Tate died, the community had communicated the deaths to local administrations, including the County Health Team of Margibi, expecting them to bury or remove the corpses and have them appropriately handled; but no word from the County Health Team has been received.The Weala Women’s leader noted that the situation is posing a serious problem to women and children in that part of Liberia. Because of the government’s refusal to remove the bodies, the owner of the only community clinic in the area has closed the place down.Madam Coleman, who hailed the government for its decision to declare a state of emergency to fight against the deadliest killer Ebola virus, called upon government put into place a workable framework that will make for the speedy removal of dead persons from communities around the country.Also speaking on the issue, the Commissioner of Cinta Township, William Julye, described the delay of the government’s burial team to remove the decomposing dead bodies in his township as a total embarrassment.Mr. Julye said he had earlier informed his boss, the Margibi Superintendent, about this urgent matter, who gave assurance that a team, including health personnel were going to remove the two dead bodies. That has not happened.As a result, residents of Weala Town on Saturday August 9, 2014 set up a roadblock preventing vehicles from plying the Kakata-Gbarnga route.The residents’ roadblock action, which lasted for over 3 hours . It was later aborted by well armed Police Support Unit (PSU).Commenting on the death of Ellietta and Boll Tate, Commissioner Julye explained that his inquiry proved that the two were relatives, that they got sick in Kakata and had gone for medical treatment in Weala.According to Commissioner Julye, the father of Boll Tate, Mr. Christopher Tate, who also works for the Salala Rubber Corporation (SRC), had told him (Julye) that Mr. Tate’s now deceased son was sick and that he (father) had suggested that his the young man go to Weala for treatment. Upon arrival, Mr. Tate allegedly hired a private nurse to treat his son. Mr. Julye pointed out that after administering several medications without eqrw results, the nurse (name not given) instructed Mr. Tate to take his son back to Kakata for further treatment. Immediately, Mr. Tate hired a Motorcycle rider, including two family members, to transport Boll Tate to Kakata.It was while they were en route to Kakata that Boll Tate died and was later taken back to Weala.Mr. Julye lamented that prior to Boll Tate’s death, he vomited and showed other signs that were symptomatic of Ebola.  The Cinta Township Commissioner’s records show that prior to the deaths of Boll Tate and Ellietta, in the space of less than two months, seven family members have died in similar manner, bringing the total death toll in Weala to nine.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgOil and gas sector…calls mount for national oil spill contingency planBy Samuel SukhnandanFormer presidential advisor and economist, Ramon Gaskin has urged Guyanese to approach the courts if they feel the current oil contract signed between ExxonMobil and the Guyana Government breached the laws on petroleum exploration and operation under current laws.Gaskin’s comment came from a question posed to him during a formal discussion on oil and gas and other topical issues facing Guyana at the National Library on Tuesday. The outspoken economist said Guyanese need to become more aware of the issues related to the impending oil and gas sector.“Any Guyanese could approach the courts to look at the matter. Anyone can do it.Former presidential adviser and economist, Ramon Gaskin addressing a forum at the National LibraryBut you won’t get the politicians to renegotiate because they already said they won’t do it… Even a new Government can come into Government can’t change the contract… Eventually there is where you have to go,” he stated.Making references to the Petroleum Act, Gaskin told the small gathering that Section Two of the Act speaks about property in petroleum being vested in the State and the State will have the exclusive right over it. He, therefore, questioned why those exclusive rights have in a large way been given away.Gaskin, a trained lawyer, told the forum that both ExxonMobil and the Government are in breach of the laws governing this sector. He noted that the Petroleum (Exploration and Production) Act sets out the provisions for companies operating in this sector. However, ExxonMobil has more than 600 blocks, when the law allows prospecting licence the oil companies to get more than 60 blocks.And he pointed out that while this same law stipulates that each company is allowed only 10 years maximum to explore for oil before they have to leave, Exxon has been here for close to 17 years now.Gaskin maintained that Exxon’s “prospecting licence was up since 2009 and according to the Petroleum Act, they should have left already. Both the old 1999 and new agreement signed with ExxonMobil violates the laws of Guyana in many areas, and that should be noted,” he contends.The outspoken economist also raised the point that there is nothing in the oil contract about insurance, expect that ExxonMobil is self-insured. This, he said, leaves cracks open especially when it comes to environmental protection from oil spills, which happens in most oil producing countries.“So if they destroy the (fishes, marine life) out there, you will have to go to him and make your claim (the same guy who just did it). However, in the African agreements, the oil company is required to hire an independent international company to do the assessment, and not to self-insure.“While it should be a legal requirement to provide a performance bond and guarantees, we allow them to provide themselves (Exxon), rather than from an independent financial institution or bank,” he said.Another issue raised by Gaskin is the provision for site visits. “The Minister has to give a seven-day notice, and also pay for his own expense and transportation. We should have people out there on the rig every day, seeing what’s taking place to guarantee that what we are getting is fair.”SpillsWhile both ExxonMobil and Government have assured Guyanese that they have nothing to fear, as they are well prepared to take action in the event of an oil spill of any magnitude, there are no specific provisions set out in the agreement to deal with any such issues.However, in the event of an oil spill that could have massive impacts on the environment particularly sea life, the Minister is responsible for responding to it and at the end presents a bill to the oil company.Conservationist, Annette Arjoon-Martins, says a lot work has to be done before Guyana can truly be protected from the effects of an oil spill. She has since called for a national oil spill contingency plan.“(So we) have to have a team of knowledgeable and capable people to respond and I would like to see that (arranged),” Arjoon-Martins had told the media recently.Since Exxon announced its oil find in the Liza-1 well in 2015, a pertinent question has been the capacity of the relevant agencies to protect the environment in case of an oil spill. It is a topic that has regularly been raised at public lectures.Last year, President David Granger commissioned Guyana’s first oil spill response operation service at the Gaico Wharf at Nismes, West Bank Demerara. Gaico Oil Spill Response Operation Services, which was coined by Komal Singh, was set up as a pre-emptive measure against probable spillage once production commence in the future.The Gaico company began in 1991, with Singh working on small construction projects in Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara). At the commissioning, Singh had stated that he had noticed that there are a number of near misses of oil spills and decided to pursue the avenue of preparing for one in Guyana.He said the company has since invested in a supply boat to work alongside rigs and supply them with fuel and cargo, while preparing for any occurrence of an oil spill.last_img read more

QB dad-to-be Brady set to get more protection

first_imgHe has not yet heard back from the team or Brady but said he did not expect a thank-you note. “He’s a public figure, one who probably doesn’t want to be seen going into 7-Eleven buying condoms,” Mirarchi, who owns the Valencia-based CondomMan.com, a low-cost, online prophylactic vendor, said Wednesday. “If only he’d known about our site! Not that this isn’t a joyous occasion, and I’m sure he’s thrilled, but still, we could have been an option.” Brady, 29, dated the 36-year-old Moynahan for three years, but the relationship broke up not long after he impregnated her. The Boston Globe reported the couple was unaware of Brady’s impending paternity when they went their separate ways. The quarterback is currently vacationing in Paris with his girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen, a Victoria’s Secret model once linked to Leonardo DiCaprio. Tom Brady, multimillionaire quarterback, occasional Super Bowl hero, lover of beautiful women and soon-to-be accidental father, is about to receive a little more protection in the pocket. Brady landed on the gossip pages when his ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, announced recently that she’s carrying his baby. They split in December, and now he’s got a hot, new, Brazilian squeeze and, oh, what a sticky situation. CondomMan to the rescue. As a gesture of goodwill to the New England Patriots quarterback, the alter-ego of Valencia businessman Kevin Mirarchi sent 2,000 Durex Extra Sensitive condoms Tuesday to Gillette Stadium near Boston. Mirarchi said he hopes the couple finds his package useful.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

GOLF NEWS: JOE TERRY PRODUCES STUNNING ROUND TO WIN WITH EASE AT BARNHILL

first_imgLetterkenny Gaels GAA News:It may have been too early to be thinking of summer at the weekend with the glorious sunshine and warm temperatures, but there was certainly a “spring” in the steps of golfers at Barnhill with over two hundred competitors taking part.Once again, with the mats now lifted for competitions, it was the “low” men who showed their ability to conform to the changing conditions with two of the cat 1 members scoring below par gross! Easter Saturday Open, sponsored by Gallinagh’s Letterkenny Tool Hire & Sales, was won convincingly by Joe Terry [11] who, with the help of birdies at 2nd and 5th, took the turn with a level par gross and 24pts for the front nine and with dropping only three shots to par on the back nine, finished with a three point margin of 44pts over runner-up Paddy Mc Cafferty [22]. The cat 4. member had a great start with a birdie at 2nd and, despite a double bogey at 8th, still managed 22pts on front nine to steer him on his way to a final 41pts by scoring at every hole. In third place was Paddy Hannigan [9] who, starting with an obtuse double bogey at par five second hole, reduced the arrears somewhat with a birdie at 12th for a 22pt. inward nine and an overall 40pt. finish. Round of the day was returned by Jamie Foley [4] recording birdies at 7th, 9th, 11th, 14th & 18th on his way to a gross winning score of one under par 36pts. Jamie’s two bogies came at the par three 13th & 16th. Easter Sunday’s Open, sponsored by Global Tiles & Bathrooms, was won by another cat 4. member, Noel Gallagher [s] [21]. With a disheartening start of double bogey at 1st followed by a “blank” at 3rd, Noel’s perseverance and birdie at 5th saw him settle into a rhythm that produced a satisfactory 21pts on back nine for a total of 41pts to relegate single figure handicapper Darragh Mc Menamin [4] to the runner-up spot on B.O.T. Yet another great score from our “low” man with birdies at 4th, 10th, 15th & 18th, recording a one under par gross 35 shots on outward nine, a two under par gross 34 shots on inward nine, two bogeys and a finish of one under 71 gross. Master’s type scoring! Running a close third was Michael Nelis [11], also starting with a bemusing bogey at 1st and a “blank” at 3rd only to spring into action on back nine with a one under gross 34 shots, 24pts and an overall 39pts. Gross on the day was won by Conor Friel [7] with 33 gross points.Easter Monday Bank Holiday Open was commandeered by categories three and four, with Patrick Page [18] taking his first honor of the new season. With 22pts on the card at the turn, Patrick’s birdie at the par five 18th was enough to secure the win over Hugh Kerr [28], whose steady handicap golf yielded him 41pts and a runner-up spot. In third place and continuing his fine form from Sunday, was Conor Friel [7] who, with birdies at 4th, 8th, 10th & 18th, would rue that “blank” at unlucky 13th which left him returning 41pts also but beaten on the countback. Gross prize went to Jamie Foley [3] returning another great gross score of 35pts.This weekend’s competitions will see a singles Open Stroke on Friday, Open s/ford on Saturday and the long anticipated confined Voucher competition on Sunday, which all members are encouraged to enter.REMINDER to all members that you must have played in at least four [4] home competitions to be eligible to play in the club’s majors,President’s Day, Saturday 27th June and Captain’s Day, Saturday 11th July.The list of club Team Captains’ for the coming season is now on the notice board so any member wishing to play for any club team should contact the relevant Team Captain.The Cat 4 season will now officially “tee-off” on Monday 13th April.
