Guyana: PPP abused, exploited Toshaos

LEADER and Presidential Candidate of the Liberty and Justice Party (LJP), Lenox Shuman, said Indigenous People were exploited and abused under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP) Administration.

Shuman, who once served as the Chairman of the National Toshaos Council (NTC) and Toshao of St Cuthbert’s Mission, made the statement during a press conference at Duke Lodge on Thursday. According to him, many Toshaos and Indigenous People suffered at the hands of PPP/C Member of Parliament, Nigel Dharamlall, when he held the post of Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs.

“Many of the chiefs, many of the Toshaos who visited the Ministry of Amerindian People’s Affairs during the PPP tenure were cursed and chased out, and verbally abused by the then Permanent Secretary, Mr. Nigel Dharamlall,” Shuman told reporters.
