GBTI welcomes more joint tourism initiatives

first_imgGBTI has indicated its long-term commitment to partnering with the Guyana Tourism and Hospitality Association (THAG) in supporting the maintenance of Guyana’s latest tourist attraction – the “I love Guyana” 3-dimensional sign, which was officially launched on Wednesday.GBTI Director Suresh Beharry and Georgetown Mayor Ubraj Narine unveil the plaque to the “I love Guyana” Tourist Park“This is a fantastic initiative,” said GBTI Director Suresh Beharry, speaking at the official ceremony on the lawns of GBTI. “It’s not a one-year project, it’s not a one-year commitment, I think I can safely say on behalf of the board and the members of GBTI that this will be a long-term relationship,” he concluded.Beharry said GBTI is very happy to be associated with the project. The Bank was the lone company to have sponsored the sign in partnership with THAG and Impressions.He said Guyanese need to develop a deeper sense for patriotism which is affected by our fractured society and underscored other speakers’ sentiments that a divided house cannot prosper.“Unless we fix it, there will be no prosperity for Guyana moving forward…I am hoping that this sign can start us in the direction to fix that so Guyana can really take its place in the Caribbean, in the world. Wherever it is that GBTI can continue to promote and assist Guyanese—companies and individuals to better themselves, to promote Guyana— we stand ready to help because as it says we see Guyana through your eyes,” Beharry noted.GBTI’s maintenance role in this project will include the supply of power to the park, maintenance and other possible enhancements.This is just another of many Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives that the Bank has undertaken. Other CSR initiatives by GBTI include the GBTI-sponsored Buxton Steel Orchestra, the GBTI Open Lawn Tennis and the GBTI Summer Camp among others.last_img read more

Liverpool face Man Utd test as City look to get back into groove

first_imgUnai Emery takes his Arsenal side, unbeaten in 21 matches in all competitions, to face struggling Southampton while Chelsea also travel to the south coast to take on Brighton. Manchester City host seventh-placed Everton in the early Saturday kick-off while Tottenham, fresh from reaching the Champions League knockout phase, face Burnley at Wembley.AFP Sports picks out some of the main talking points ahead of the weekend fixtures in the Premier League.Can Mourinho end Liverpool’s unbeaten run?Jose Mourinho came under fire last year for failing to attack Liverpool’s then leaky defence, settling for a 0-0 draw that cost his side momentum after a fine start to the season.Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick for Liverpool against Bournemouth © AFP / Glyn KIRKNormally a draw at Anfield would be a good result but defeat could leave United 11 points off the top four if other results go against them.United scored four goals last week against Fulham but their attacking play has rarely been fluid this season and they are coming up against a defence that has conceded a single goal at home in the Premier League this season.In a statistical quirk, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will all be looking for a first goal or assist in a Premier League match for Liverpool against United in more than 14 hours of football but few would bet against Salah adding to his tally in his current rich vein of form.Jesus firing blanksGabriel Jesus is in a slump — he has not found the net in the Premier League since August despite chances to stake his claim in the absence of Sergio Aguero through injury. Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus (right) has only scored one Premier League goal this season © AFP/File / Ben STANSALLCity boss Pep Guardiola has come to the defence of the misfiring forward, saying he just needs to relax but he will be scratching his head about how to get the best out of the Brazilian.Jesus started his City career brightly and was seen as a serious threat to Aguero’s position in the team.But the signs are that Guardiola does not trust the 21-year-old to deliver at the moment. He has started just four Premier League games this season and Guardiola left him out of the starting 11 against Chelsea last week despite the absence of Aguero.Arsenal’s defensive crisisArsenal are without a clutch of centre-backs for their trip to second-bottom club Southampton, seeking fresh direction under new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi are suspended after picking up bookings in last week’s 1-0 win against Huddersfield while Konstantinos Mavropanos and Rob Holding are injured.Laurent Koscielny is nearing a return to action for Arsenal © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSClub captain Laurent Koscielny could feature even though has been missing from the Premier League since May with a serious Achilles injury.Manager Unai Emery said the club could look into recruiting a defender when the transfer window opens — both Chelsea’s Gary Cahill and Eric Bailly of Manchester United have been recently linked with a move to the Emirates.Pochettino’s rising stockMauricio Pochettino enhanced his burgeoning reputation with an impressive 1-1 draw at Barcelona this week as his side reached the Champions League knockouts.Mauricio Pochettino has led his Tottenham team into the Champions League last 16 © AFP/File / Josep LAGOThe downside of the success is that the Spurs boss is being linked once again to clubs higher up football’s food chain, specifically Real Madrid and Manchester United.“It’s no coincidence that every day you read Real Madrid want him or United want him,” Danny Rose told the Guardian ahead of Tottenham’s match against lowly Burnley.“It’s exactly what he deserves. What he has done here in the last four or five years has been amazing.

Arsenal transfer target remains unsure of his future as Real Madrid plot raid

first_imgArsenal target Alvaro Morata says he hopes he has not played his last game for Juventus – amid reports that he is set to leave the Serie A side.Spanish striker Morata is wanted by a long list of clubs, which includes Arsenal, with Real Madrid expected to exercise the option to re-sign him this summer for £23m.It has been reported that they will then look to sell him on once again for a huge profit – with Real ready to slap a £50m asking price on Morata.But now the 23-year-old has muddied the waters – and delivered a blow to Arsenal – by revealing that he does not want to leave Juve at all.He said: “I do not know when my future will be clear, but basically I’m in no hurry because I have a contract with one of the best clubs in the world.“At Juventus, I feel at home. I wish my last match with Juve was not my last in Italy, I hope to play in more.“It’s obvious that I don’t want to go and play for a club I don’t want to play for. I’ve got a contract with Juventus and I can have a say, but in the end it depends on the two clubs [Juventus and Real Madrid].” Juventus striker Alvaro Morata 1last_img read more

SA suspends two firearms officials

first_img15 July 2013 Two senior police officers have been suspended following a wide-ranging investigation into corruption in South Africa’s Central Firearm Registry, the police confirmed on Monday. The suspensions follow recent media reports alleging corruption after an ex-employee at a gun shop said that he bribed officers at the registry in order to fast-track the issuing of gun licences. South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesman Solomon Makgale said that Mathapelo Mangwane, a section head at the registry, and Hlamane Mahlabane, a section head for firearm compliance, had been suspended from duty as of Monday for their involvement in corrupt activities. Another employee, an administration clerk, has been issued with a letter of intention to suspend her and had been given until Wednesday to make representation as to why she should not be suspended. “This is extremely disappointing, as the people who have been suspended are the ones who were given the responsibility of cleaning up the Central Firearm Registry, with the clear objective of eliminating all corrupt activities,” Makgale said. “Now they stand accused of the very same thing that they were employed to stamp out.” Investigations are continuing and the possibility of disciplinary as well as criminal action against other employees could not be ruled out, Makgale said. Applications for new and renewed firearm licences are made at police stations in South Africa, with renewals being finalised at provincial level while new licences and competency certificates are finalised at the Central Firearms Registry in Pretoria. Over the past year, criminal cases involving corruption have been instituted against eight members of the SAPS’s Firearm, Liquor and Second Hand Goods unit, which is responsible for approving and issuing firearm licences. To date, one employee has been convicted and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment suspended for 10 years. He was dismissed from the SAPS. Court cases against the other seven accused employees, as well as two civilians, are pending. It is anticipated that more arrests will take place in the near future. These investigations have prompted Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa to set up a committee to probe the practices of certain allegedly unscrupulous firearms dealers. This inquiry is under way and includes looking into those dealers who are not complying with the Firearms Control Act, as well as those possibly colluding with staff at the Central Firearm Registry. Any person with information on these and other cases of fraud and corruption is urged to make a report using of the Corruption Hotline number 0800 701 701, or to make an anonymous tip-off via the Crime Stop number 08600 10111 or the Crime Line number 32211 for anonymous text messages.
