AFC says it will continue to sideline Minister Rohee since the increase in crime speaks to the lack of proper leadership

roheeCrimes recorded by the Guyana Police Force are increasing and the business community in most cases continues to feel the brunt of this social problem.

Recent figures published by the Police have shown that already for this year, close to 92 murders were recorded when compared with last year.  That is a four percent increase.  With several murders in a matter of weeks already for this month, the situation is worrying.

The Alliance for Change (AFC) wants to see better leadership of the Guyana Police Force along with the recruitment of qualified officers.

AFC Leader Khemraj Ramjattan says his party will continue to express no-confidence in Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee since he sees Rohee as one of the difficulties in addressing the present crime issues.

In response to the Attorney General’s claim that the Opposition Parties should be blamed for crime, Ramjattan dismissed the statement saying that the AG should act more professionally.

Both A Partnership for National Unity and the AFC in the National Assembly had passed a no-confidence Motion in Minister Rohee, but he is refusing to budge and has the full backing of the Government.
