The Commission of Inquiry is currently investigating the operations of City Hall. During this, a representative of the University of Guyana’s branch of the United Minibus Union, Cecelia Richards highlighted the Town Clerk’s decision to collect monies from nine specific drivers of the Route 44 (Industry) route. Though this was news to most; in June of this year; several route 44 bus drivers already confirmed this claim to Headline News.
This unconstitutional act resulted in 45 nonpaying drivers being affected by the move. Richards was not the only one to testify against the embattled Town Clerk. Former Deputy Mayor Sherod Duncan spoke of the questionable leadership of the Mayor and town clerk.
The town clerk was sent on administrative leave last week to facilitate the COI investigations.
