On the afternoon into the evening of Friday July 04, 2014 the Minister of Natural Resource Mr. Robert Mercury Selling Persaud, mother held a memorial service/party (we say Party because lots of dancing was noticeable) for her late husband Mr. Croal at her multi Million Dollar recently renovated residence in Deli Street, Prashad Nagar ( 3 houses away from Robert Persaud newly acquired multi Million Dollar home). The late Mr. Croal was the father of Mr. Collin Croal who is the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development and Minister Robert Persaud half brother one big family.
During the service/ party all invites were allow to park there very expensive vehicles on both sides of the road (Deli Street). This reduced the already narrow two lane road into a single lane, which resulted into traffics chaos for the normal and ordinary road users. These ordinary road user ( not the Minister’s families and friend) found themselves helpless, since traffic was coming in both direction and were forced to use a narrow zig zag single lane to travers, with no one to assist or help direct them.
This caused the ordinary vehicle users and passengers much anger and frustration at the complete lack of consideration for other road users.
The photos shows Minister Robert Persaud luxury land cruiser (4×4) vehicle registration number PPP 4 parked in front of his mother’s multi million dollar house (built from tax payers monies) causing traffic jam. It is clear that the Minister vehicle PPP 4 was parked on the road and not off to the corner of the road, No consideration at all!
Only in Guyana can the Ministers and their families have automatic authority to block Any public roadway for personal Family Function. Does the Ministers of this lawless PPP Government think that they are above the Laws of Guyana?
If you and we try to do this, it would be lockup and left something as usual.
