– Lone protestor calls for sacking of more senior officials By Desilon DanielsTameshwar Beekham protests in front of the Office of the PresidencyHe trudged from one location to another, his bright yellow placards tucked away under his arm. He was alone, the sole protestor at different locations, but he did not care; he had something to say and he was going to say it, regardless of who supported him or not.His name is Tameshwar Beekham and he turned out yesterday at the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) office, the Police Headquarters and the Office of the Presidency (OP) to protest against what he calls rampant corruption in Guyana.During an interview with Kaieteur News, Beekham explained that he believed that senior officials from a number of government agencies needed to be immediately removed. He said that many of these officials were “shady” and unprofessional characters who were placed in positions of power due to their links with members of the previous administration, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C).He added that persons who were in high positions but had no real sort of qualifications or experience needed to be replaced.“This is a new government, a changed government, and we need to get rid of the crooks. If we don’t, we’re going to have a tug of war in our nation,” Beekham stressed.He further emphasised that while removing officials from their posts would be deemed a witch-hunt by several persons, he expressed the belief that it was not a witch-hunt, but a “thief-hunt”. He further said that if outright termination is not an option, sending persons on leave while investigations are carried out is a satisfactory alternative.“It’s time the country starts a new phase of its history,” Beekham said, “If we remove the corruption, it will trickle right down to the regular man in Guyana. It’ll go a long way for everyone,” he added.But while much of his focus was on the perceived wrongdoing under the PPP administration, Beekham said that he will be watching the new government closely, perhaps even more closely than he did with the PPP. He clarified that he needed to ensure that the name of the coalition government, APNU+AFC, was not similarly tarnished like that of the PPP.SHAKEUPS NEEDEDThe DPP’s Office and the Police Headquarters were just two agencies Beekham believes need major shakeups. While he protested in front of OP, he indicated that it was only to air his grievances with other agencies.While countless persons were heading to work or now preparing for it, Beekham had already made himself comfortable at the Police Headquarters in Eve Leary.

He expressed satisfaction with the reception received by the police who allowed him to openly share his opinion.However, he said, he was not similarly satisfied at the DPP’s Office.According to Beekham, he was not long at that location before he was asked to stop his protesting and move to another location.“They told me I couldn’t protest at the office,” he said.He expressed the belief that the DPP’s office was not functioning the way it ought to. According to him,China Jerseys Wholesale, there was no real equity in the way persons were being sent before the courts.“From what I remember,Cheap Stitched Jerseys, a rich man has never gone to prison; a millionaire has not been prosecuted yet,” Beekham stated.
