Price tag for washroom items in Airport expansion project contract alarming – 2nd Jul 2013

shot0001In his regular Business Page in the Stabroek News, Mr. Christopher Ram provided the price tag for different aspects of the airport project, but what was most alarming is the price to be paid for items in the washrooms.

He revealed that the Guyana Government agreed to let the Chinese company buy what it wants and from where, but preferably China.

What was the price agreed to for toilet sets? According to Ram, 69 toilet bowls have to be bought and at a cost of almost half a million Guyana dollars each. According to Ram’s Mathematics, that amounts to 27 times the retail price being charged by the Chinese traders in downtown Georgetown, such as Zhong Ya Hardware.

But that’s not all. Still at Zhong Ya Hardware, Ram said if the Chinese company building the airport would buy from this store, it would be 17 times cheaper for it to do so, paying just over $7000 each, instead of the $124,000 it plans to spend buying sinks.

And when it comes to urinals, Ram said the Chinese company would be buying one for more than quarter of a million dollars.

The Attorney says it must have been someone in his intoxicated or corrupted mind to negotiate such a contract.

Ram said the contract is a shocking tale of recklessness and irresponsibility on the part of the Ministry of Public Works and indeed the entire Government, which with its eyes open signed a contract that allows the contractor China Harbour Engineering to fleece the country.
