…the constitutional crisisThe Constitution of a country is supposed to address its political questions – those that have to do ultimately with power, that is, which crop up as the people go about their business. The Constitution is like a contract where the citizens of the country set up the terms that’ll govern the institutions running the state. The state has the ultimate sanction of using force, if necessary, to ensure that it’s laws – as encompassed by the Constitution or emanating from it – are upheld.A citizen breaks the law about not bashing fellow citizens over the head, and the forces of law (the courts) and order (the Police) will deal with him/her condignly. But what happens when the Head of State refuses to obey the Constitution itself?? Who deals with him condignly?? You have a full blown “constitutional crisis”, that’s what – and this is what we’re confronting in Guyana today.What does the Constitution say about this situation? Well, Art 106 (6) says the President and Cabinet should’ve resigned by now. And Art 95 says if there isn’t a President, then the Prime Minister takes over. But since, in this case, the PM was a member of the Cabinet, he doesn’t exist. Who’s next in line? The same article says a designated Minister – but since all of these have been vaporised by the NCM vote, then according to the Art we’re down to the Chancellor.The question, however, is exactly how do we bell the cat, when the ex-President insists on squatting on the presidency? Can we remove him for violating the Constitution? Well, Art 180 speaks to that…but assumes there’s a Parliament the speaker can summon to consider such a motion and if 2/3 of the members agree, then a tribunal will be set up to do the dirty. But we know this ain’t gonna happen and we’re back to the constitutional crisis of an irresistible force meeting an immovable object!!The situation over in Venezuela suggests a way out. There, the 2018 re-election of President Maduro was disputed, and their National Assembly declared that the presidency should be filled in an interim way by the Assembly’s leader, Juan Guaidó. Maduro’s handpicked Supreme Court, however, ruled the National Assembly declaration unconstitutional and confirmed Maduro as President. Constitutional crisis, like ours!!But the US took a stand— imposed sanctions and built national democratic coalitions to support Guaidó. This showed that the old rule of “non-interference” in the domestic affairs of states is breaking down after the international community realised how much suffering can be unleased on a populace by a rogue government.Most of the world – including the US – have already condemned Granger.Next step sanctions!!…Granger’s smirkOver the last five years, Granger has cultivated an image of avuncular unflappability combined with anodyne platitudes that helped mask (pun intended) the brutal actions he unleashed on perceived Opposition supporters. Shutting down 4 estates and firing 7000 sugar workers?? Not to worry, that was “right sizing” the industry!! Spending billions and billions and pageantry and monuments while starvation became endemic in Opposition enclaves?? No problem…men didn’t live by bread alone!!But while he might’ve won the battle over the NCM by dragging it out in the courts, he hasn’t only lost the war, but also his aura of imperturbability. Like most bullies who thought he held all the cards, he just didn’t know when to stop. He overplayed his hand when he refused to proclaim elections even though he’d gotten all his demands met.He’s been so rattled by the Opposition’s “in your face” protests and the foreign community condemnations, he exposed the fangs that were always there.Burnham boasted about his “sharper steel”; Granger brought out the Riot Squad in full battle gear. …Venezuela’s bombastNext March, the World Court will be taking arguments on the jurisdictional issues in the Venezuelan-instigated border controversy.Looks like the new government will have that albatross off their necks, in addition to the oil bonanza!!
Robin van Persie had been the star that night with a hat-trick, but he was also injured in that game, allowing Rooney to regain top billing with a brace at Upton Park.And he did so with an opening goal worthy of a Hollywood script by emulating former United hero David Beckham by beating the goalkeeper from astonishing range.It was not quite as far out as Beckham’s famous halfway-line lob against Wimbledon in 1996, but the former England captain just so happened to be in the stands to watch it go in.Moyes’s starting line-up caused plenty of eyebrows to be raised as Alexander Buttner, Shinji Kagawa and Ashley Young all started and Michael Carrick, a former West Ham midfielder, was employed in central defence.Carrick was drafted in to replace the suspended Nemanja Vidic, with Marouane Fellaini detailed to help him cope with home striker Andy Carroll at set-pieces.Rio Ferdinand, who also began his career at Upton Park, was ruled out by a back injury, while England forward Danny Welbeck could only make the bench.United started strongly. Carroll stopped Fellaini’s header on the line in the third minute after the Belgian had been picked out in the box by Young and it was not long before home goalkeeper Adrian was required to stop a shot from Juan Mata.Then came Rooney’s moment of genius in the eighth minute as he nudged Hammers defender James Tomkins out of the way just inside the hosts’ half on the right before lofting a shot over Adrian from almost 60 yards.– Rooney reaches milestoneWest Ham replied with high balls aimed at Carroll, who headed a free-kick just wide and found United goalkeeper David de Gea with another header after Stewart Downing had got the better of Rafael da Silva.Kagawa had the chance to double United’s lead, but fired straight at Adrian, as did Mata soon afterwards. Mata was operating in the hole behind Rooney and was a constant menace to the West Ham back-line.West Ham captain Kevin Nolan felt he should have had a penalty when he went down under Darren Fletcher’s challenge, but play continued, allowing United to score on the counter-attack in the 33rd minute.Young fired in a cross from the right that Mark Noble hoofed away from goal, but the ball hit the onrushing Rooney on the shin and flew into the net.It was Rooney’s 212th United goal, taking him above Jack Rowley into third place on the list of the club’s all-time leading scorers, behind only Bobby Charlton (249) and Denis Law (237).The home side were visibly deflated by the setback and allowed Rooney a chance to claim his hat-trick before half-time.This time, however, his connection from the edge of the box was wild and the ball almost went out for a throw-in.The second half was not so memorable as West Ham won a series of corners, but could not turn them into goals.United, for their part, were content to keep possession whenever possible, but the urge to add to their lead was only intermittent.Fellaini burst through late on and went down in the box under a challenge from Antonio Nocerino, the West Ham substitute, but no penalty was awarded.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, March 22- Wayne Rooney posted a goal of the season contender as Manchester United ended a memorable week by winning 2-0 at West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday.A week ago, manager David Moyes had seen his players humiliated 3-0 at home by Liverpool, but United recovered to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit against Olympiakos in mid-week to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Aberdeen 0-0 HeartsTen-man Hearts ensured they ended 2017 on a nine-game unbeaten run as they kept Aberdeen at bay to grab a Pittodrie point.Jam Tarts forward Kyle Lafferty saw red in the closing stages but Hearts held on to secure a club record sixth straight clean sheet.Hibs 1-1 Kilmarnock Celtic 0-0 RangersCeltic and Rangers drew 0-0 as the final Old Firm derby of 2017 ended in a stalemate.An absorbing encounter saw chances spurned at both ends, with Scott Sinclair and Alfredo Morelos left to rue guilt-edged misses.The home side dominated large spells of the first half, but they had Craig Gordon to thank for keeping the score level in the second 45 minutes as the Scotland stopper made a series of crucial saves.
“You have had a career before. The supporters are not happy, yes, you can blame this a bit but play your game. After this go home and next week it’s the next game and in two years you have stopped your career. Nothing will happen. The German coach called on club captain Christophe Berra and midfielder Glenn Whelan to lead the way by taking responsibility. He’s now preparing for the visit of Celtic on Wednesday night and admits that imposing a new style of play is secondary to lifting spirtis and belief. “When you are 20 you want to have a career and play successful football and play every week, then you have a little pressure to play without mistakes. “I have no idea what has happened but I have had some talks with players, some experienced players with a lot of professional games in their careers, not 20 or 25, and they cannot explain whey they feel so low in confidence,” he said. “The main thing at the moment is not the style, the main thing is to change the heads. I am positive, I like to change things, I like to look forward and I want to bring this into the group.” “When you look at the squad and the names and experience, you think you can talk and get some information on what has happened. But it’s not too easy to get information because sometimes I have the feeling from the players they don’t really know why they have lost confidence.” He added: “When you have played 400 games in professional football and played for big clubs in England, when things don’t work in a game like Saturday, what can happen? “But not when you are 30, 32, 33, whatever. Come on, play for me, make a mistake, it doesn’t matter, ask for the next ball. This is what we need. “It’s crazy that our youngest player had the most confidence on the pitch but we can change it. “I didn’t expect that the confidence would be so low,” Stendel said. “I hoped I could change it quicker but they didn’t lose it the previous week, it was over a long time. I hope we don’t need so much time to change it. Stendel has been tasked with reversing the club’s fortunes and saw the team lose at home to St Johnstone in his first game in charge. “The advantage is the expectation on Wednesday is not so high. As we say in Germany, we can only win.” Hearts boss Daniel Stendel has said that he did not expect his new side’s confidence to be so low and wants his more experience players to lead a change in mentality at the club. Stendel said that discussions with the squad had left him perplexed, as experienced players seemed to be low in confidence and found the situation inexplicable. “I think when Steven Naismith comes back he will give other players confidence. We need some individual players to have more confidence on the pitch, to ask for balls, to take more responsibility. This is the start to change things. “I know Glenn Whelan can take more responsibility on the pitch, and Christophe, we have a lot of players who can take more responsibility.”

18 April 2006The European Union (EU) and Southern African Development Community (SADC) have launched a new drive to facilitate European investor funding in 100 mining projects in the southern African region.According to Mining Weekly, this is the third mining initiative launched by the EU-SADC Investment Promotion Programme (Esipp), following similar initiatives in 1994 and 2000.Esipp, a joint EU-SADC programme designed to attract foreign investment in the region, brings together European and southern African entrepreneurs in five targeted sectors: construction and building materials, tourism, light engineering, agro-industry and mining.According to Mining Weekly, Esipp has begun the process of identifying mining projects in 12 of the SADC’s 14 member countries, with regional workshops having already taken place in Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland.Once identified and validated, the projects will be presented to potential EU investors at a meeting – dubbed Mines 2006 – in Lusaka, Zambia in November.In November 2005, Esipp hosted a similar investment promotion conference for the building materials and construction sector, followed by a conference for the light engineering sector in February 2006.Tourism 2006, an event taking place in Namibia in October, will bring together potential EU and SADC business partners in tourism, while projects and investors in the agro-industry sector will be catered for in 2007.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
