President and his Cabinet should do the right thing

first_imgDear Editor,In light of the ticking constitutional clock, the suspicious silence of the unilaterally appointed GECOM’s Chairman Justice (retired) James Patterson, puts GECOM under the radar for highest scrutiny. Whatever the reason for President David Granger’s unilateralism, no skullduggery will be accepted as we arrive at the crossroads.The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mr Keith Lowenfield are bungling with the necessary preparation for Regional and National Elections which are constitutionally due not later than March 19, 2019. This lack of accountability and transparency is very awkward, invites a crisis, and will have significant consequences for all and sundry.In the past, Chairman Patterson publically spoke about the confidence he has in the GECOM staff. Further, the GECOM Public Relations Officer (PRO) reassured Guyanese that GECOM will be ready to carry out its function when called upon. This column, therefore, demands in the interest of all citizens, drastic changes to their ‘pussyfooting’ approach by the CEO and Chairman. This column definitively calls for swift decisive action in executing the business of their obligated constitutional responsibilities.We note the calls of Commissioners and Staff members at GECOM who are very worried and have asked serious questions about the inventory of the existing stocks at the GECOM head office located at Coldingen, East Coast Demerara. The fact that there ought to be tens of millions of dollars in stock there and the lack of audit over several years is of strongest concern. It sets up the pitch for limitless and the familiar fraudulent practices already exposed by the Auditor General to be repeated as an excuse for short procurement timelines.I urge the immediate commencement of refresher updates for the thousands of staff recently trained and used at the Local Government Elections, and a strong criteria-based approach for persons who are selected to work by the Commissioners at the Secretariat. GECOM must also move to procure voter education delivery service in a fair and transparent way, towards the mandatory polls.We call on the President and his Cabinet to do the right thing and answer the Guyanese people at the Polls.Sincerely,Neil Kumarlast_img read more

Orange Money Celebrates Decade of Financial Innovation in Africa

first_imgOrange Money is currently available in 17 African countries and 40 million customers strong, 13 million of whom use it every month.Orange Money, Orange’s mobile money solution, is celebrating its 10th anniversary, the company has announced.Launched in 2008, according to the release, the service currently has 40 million customers, and is available in 17 countries, reaching €26 billion (US$30.5 billion) in transactions in 2017. Orange Money is now one of the Group’s leading growth drivers and continues to evolve to better serve people, companies, institutions and governments.Initially launched in La Côte d’Ivoire in 2008, the success of the money transfer and mobile payment solution for unbanked or relatively unbanked populations is based on the accessible, universal nature of the service, which makes it possible for millions of people to perform instant, secure and reliable financial transactions using their mobile phone.Orange Money is currently available in 17 African countries and 40 million customers strong, 13 million of whom use it every month. Orange Money’s accelerating growth and sales which rose 60% from 2016 to 2017, have made it one of the Group’s top growth drivers in Africa, particularly in La Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Cameroon.In some countries, Orange says, the service gives close to 50% of users access to banking services in areas with low levels of bank usage.Orange Money is now much more than just a cash transfer service, the release said. “Over the past decade, the number of Orange Money services has quadrupled, leading to the financial inclusion of populations and helping drive national economic development.”The offer has been significantly expanded to include international transfers, bill payment, and wage payment services. The “Bank to Wallet” service, launched in 2015, is a major innovation that goes even further by enabling transfers between bank accounts and Orange Money accounts.Electronic money has also made it possible to facilitate exchanges and secure transactions, and is now a major advantage not only for individuals but also for major companies and SMEs.Changing Governance for Increased EffectivenessIn order to meet the compliance regulations that govern mobile money activities, Orange has created financial establishments with Central Bank approval in seven African countries, as well as a shared supervision and compliance control structure, CECOM, based in Abidjan. These structures guarantee transactions and facilitate dialogue directly with authorities, thereby simplifying the market launch of new services.The goal is to make Orange Money accessible for as many people as possible, in strict compliance with regulations set out of the Central Banks in the countries and currency zones where Orange operates.Alioune Ndiaye, CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa (OMEA) says that, “Orange Money makes real contributions to economic and social development in Africa and is a part of our strategy as a multiservice operator and digital transformation partner in Africa and the Middle East. Orange Money’s success is first and foremost a joint achievement, and I would like to thank all of the teams who work hard every day to ensure its success, which now represents a major share of OMEA turnover.”Mamadou Coulibaly, Orange Liberia CEO, says that, “Orange Money’s success is based on its usefulness, trustfulness and ease of use. It is the answer to the financial inclusion challenge in countries such Liberia.”The outlook for Orange MoneyAfter its transfer and payment services, Orange is going further with lending and savings services available directly by mobile phone. These services, which are available through partners, are already offered to Orange customers in Mali and Madagascar since early 2018 as part of the initial launch.International transfers, another strong area of development for Orange Money, aim to strengthen ties between people living outside their home countries and their loved ones.Finally, as smartphones become increasingly widespread and uses change rapidly, the Orange Money services are evolving with the development of an application for easier interactions and transactions.About OrangeOrange is one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators with sales of 41 billion euros in 2017 and has 149,000 employees worldwide at 30 June 2018, including 91,000 employees in France. The Group has a total customer base of more than 260 million customers at 30 June 2018, including 199 million mobile customers and 20 million fixed broadband customers worldwide.Present in 28 countries, Orange is also a leading provider of global IT and telecommunication services to multinational companies, under the Orange Business Services brand. In March 2015, the Group presented its new strategic plan Essentials2020, which places customers’ experience at the heart of its strategy with the aim of allowing them to benefit fully from the digital universe and the power of its new generation networks.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Work as One, Listen to the Youth to Create Jobs for Africa’s Next Generation’

first_imgThe 2019 African Economic Conference (AEC), has key focus on jobs, skills and capacity development for Africa’s youth.— Delegates urge policymakers at 2019 African Economic ConferenceAfrica must work as one to turn the continent’s ‘youth bulge’ into opportunities, delegates at the closing of the 2019 African Economic Conference said on Wednesday.The three-day conference in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, discussed initiatives for boosting entrepreneurship, improving the business ecosystem, access to capital and better infrastructure – all to create decent jobs for the continent’s unemployed and under-employed youth.Hanan Morsy, Director of Macroeconomic Forecasting and Research at the African Development Bank, underscored the importance of gainful and decent employment for the bulge of African youths seeking jobs or keen to set up their own businesses.“At the African Development Bank, we recognize that addressing the problem is not an easy task that a single organization or country could accomplish alone. It needs a concerted effort,” Morsy said.“It needs governments to work together and share experiences; international organizations to join hands, the private sector to work with policymakers, the youth to voice their concerns, and researchers to share policy-relevant evidence that will inform policies.”The 2019 conference, hosted by the African Development Bank in partnership with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), brought together government ministers, researchers, young entrepreneurs and civil society to explore ways to boost jobs and skills for Africa’s youth.Angela Lusigi, Strategic Advisor at the UNDP urged decision-makers to prepare for a changing demography and the impacts of a changing climate to create a brighter future for the continent.“We have to anticipate and leverage the shift that we know are going to happen in terms of our demography, our climate and our people’s movements and together we can reimagine a different future of Africa,” Lusigi said.Reform of the education system is crucial, she said.  “Let’s think deeper. We want to know what works in the African context. All our education systems have to look at creating future oriented skills because the solutions we have today will not work tomorrow.”Adam Elhiraika, Director, Macroeconomics and Governance Division at the ECA, urged young people to work across borders and contribute to integration of the continent at regional and national levels. “Creating one Africa is the most important step we can take to create better opportunities for all Africans,” he said.“The opportunities we had here is just the beginning for all of you to influence policy makers and influence ideas and actions by youths to help create jobs for Africans. It is a unique opportunity.”One of the highlights of this year’s conference was a session for young African entrepreneurs to share their work and ideas to shape the future of the continent.Fahad Awadh, co-founder of YYTZ Agro-Processing, a Tanzania-based cashew production business, said: “By improving the business environment, we will be able to drive growth and value creation, leading to job creation. It is the youth that will create the jobs that are needed on the continent.”Sobel Aziz Ngom, another young entrepreneur and founder of Social Change Factory in Senegal, commented: “There is no way we can achieve important national results in terms of education and work for young people, if all keys actors do not collaborate and align their investments, programs and practices.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jailed: Farmer to serve 10 years for killing cousin

first_imgAn Annai farmer and former clerk, Phillip Sutherland, late last month withdrew his guilty plea for unlawfully killing his cousin Martin Roberts during a drunken row at Rupununi, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) in 2014. He once again pleaded guilty to the lesser count of manslaughter. Following his plea changes, the self-confessed killer was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by High Court Judge, Justice Sandhill Kissoon on Wednesday.Sutherland admitted that he caused Roberts’ death on January 9, 2014, at a Kwaimatta Village farm after heavily consuming yeast tonic, a strong Indigenous alcoholic beverage. The offender withdrew his plea on March 27, 2018 after initially saying that he was guilty having pled to the lesser count of manslaughter on March 6 before Justice James Bovell-Drakes at the last criminal session. On March 27, 2018, he was due to be sentenced; weeks after Sutherland’s attorney requested a probation report.While the Judge did not openly express how his sentence was computed, Justice Kissoon did note that mitigating factors, aggravating factors and time spent awaiting trial were considered. The Judge highlighted the dangers of alcoholic consumption being responsible for some 50 per cent of abuse, domestic and gender-based violence cases.“The court hopes that you continue the path to rehabilitation,” he observed.Sutherland’s Attorney Siand Dhurjon in pleas of mitigation had earlier noted that his client and his brother, Franklin Sutherland, were initially charged with murdering their cousin. The sibling was however released on insufficient evidence.It was reported that the brothers and Roberts travelled to the Kawimatta Village farm and were returning home when the trio began to imbibe but shortly after a fight ensued which resulted in Roberts being thrown to the ground and brutally beaten into an unconscious state. He was subsequently pronounced dead.Roberts died from asphyxiation, a broken larynx and blunt trauma to the head. The killer, who is native to the village of Annai, was 22 years of age at the time of his crime. The State was represented by Prosecutors Mandell Moore and Lisa Cave.last_img read more

Sevilla, Celtic, Rangers edge towards Europa League, Burnley beaten

first_img0Shares0000Pablo Sarabia struck the winning goal for Sevilla in Olomouc © AFPLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 23 – Five-time Europa League winners Sevilla look set for another assault on the competition after Pablo Sarabia’s solitary goal earned a 1-0 away win to Sigma Olomouc in the first leg of their playoff on Thursday.Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers are also well-placed to make the group stages, but Burnley’s first European adventure for 51 years looks likely to come to an end next week as they lost 3-1 away to Greek giants Olympiakos. New Sevilla boss Pablo Machin left hat-trick hero Andre Silva on the bench from Sunday’s 4-1 win at Rayo Vallecano, but Silva came on to make a vital contribution with a defence splitting pass that Sarabia prodded into the top corner six minutes from time.Burnley’s faltering start to the season both domestically and in Europe continued as they paid a heavy price for the sending-off of Ben Gibson on just his second appearance for the club.The former Middlesbrough defender was shown a second yellow card for a handball which resulted in Kostas Fortounis scoring Olympiakos’ third from the penalty spot on the hour mark.Chris Wood had cancelled out Fortounis’s opener before Andreas Bouchalakis restored Olympiakos’ lead.Celtic’s quest to put their Champions League elimination at the hands of AEK Athens behind them got off to the perfect start against Suduva in Lithuania when Olivier Ntcham headed home on three minutes.But manager Brendan Rodgers bemoaned more woeful defending to allow Ovidijus Verbickas to head home an equaliser 10 minutes later in a 1-1 draw.“We gave away a soft goal. That is a real, real concern now,” said Rodgers. “We are not giving away many chances but we don’t defend the set-piece well enough.“We seem to lack concentration. That is a problem for us. And a pride, really, in terms of defending.”Across Glasgow, Steven Gerrard has no such worries as his Rangers side registered a sixth clean sheet in 10 games under the former Liverpool captain in a 1-0 win over Russia’s Ufa.One of Gerrard’s centre-backs even got the solitary goal at Ibrox as Connor Goldson smashed home from close range.Zenit St Petersburg took a commanding 3-1 lead into their second leg against Norwegian side Molde with one of Russia’s World Cup heroes Artem Dzyuba inspiring a late comeback from 1-0 down in the final 20 minutes.Basel edged a five-goal thriller over Apollon Limassol to take a 3-2 lead to Cyprus next week thanks to a double from Ricky van Wolfswinkel.RB Leipzig still have work to do in Germany in the second leg after a 0-0 draw in Ukraine against Zorya.And Champions League regulars in recent years APOEL Nicosia and Ludogorets Razgrad secured narrow 1-0 first leg leads over Kazak champions Astana and Torpedo Kutaisi of Georgia respectively.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CROOK FRANCOIS: COMPANY WOUND UP IN SOUTH

first_imgTHE HIGH Court has appointed a provisional liquidator crook Francois de Dietrich’s company in the republic.At a vacation sitting of the High Court on Saturday, Mr Justice Gerard Hogan appointed Declan McDonald of PricewaterhouseCoopers as provisional liquidator to ETIC Solutions Ltd.The court heard that ETIC, a business and management consultancy with a registered address at Ballybofey, Co Donegal, “operated in a fraudulent manner akin to a Ponzi scheme” that has affected hundreds of investors all over Ireland. ETIC’s directors are Francois, who ran several businesses in Co Donegal, and his wife Severine.The court heard that the company ceased trading late last year and both directors have left Ireland, and are believed to be somewhere in France.They fled after being exposed by a website (donegaldaily.com).The court also heard that police on both sides of the Border are investigating the firm, and authorities in Northern Ireland have issued an arrest warrant for Mr Detrich. The petition to have the company wound up was brought on behalf of Edward Doherty, director of PE Doherty of Duncreggan Road, Derry, who claims that he is owed more than €610,000 by ETIC.On Saturday the judge said he was satisfied to appoint Mr McDonald as provisional liquidator.While he was mindful that the application was made ex-parte, he was satisfied that “the company is insolvent” and that there “are strong grounds to suspect that serious irregularities have taken place within the company”. The court also made an order freezing the assets of both ETIC, its directors and two other companies; Palladium Investments Ltd and XCEL Financial Services Ltd.NI SOLICITOR TOLD TO APPEAR IN COURTCROOK FRANCOIS: JUDGE ORDERS HIS LAWYER TO APPEAR IN COURT!CROOK FRANCOIS: COMPANY WOUND UP IN SOUTH was last modified: June 13th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:crookFrancois de Dietrichgulliblethieflast_img read more
