‘Poor Farm to Market Roads our Major Challenge’

first_imgThe Fair Labour Farmers Union in District #2 Zuezohn clan in Grand Bassa County says poor farm to market road is one of the major challenges affecting their its productivity.The farmers believe that an improved road network will improve their chances of making a better impact through the sale of their produce and to increase their productivity.In an interview with Observer Farmer in Zuezohn Clan, Grand Bassa County over the weekend, General Secretary Moses Diggs expressed their willingness to contribute significantly to the back to the soil program which aims to increase productivity.The objective, he said is to help reduce the huge importation of rice to Liberia. The farmers have cultivated rice on 60 acres of land, along with vegetables and cassava.He called on the Government of Liberia to ensure the rehabilitation of the road network and international partners to provide other necessary support to the farmers.Diggs said farmers walk about two hours to get to their farms in Zuezohn Clan due to bad roads.“As community dwellers we came together and started these farms with L$200,000 and have grown food but due to the terrible road network and the lack of storage facilities most our produce spoil,” he said.He added “Due to the huge quantity of produce we lost to the bad road, it makes it very difficult for us because we are unable to repay the L$85,000 that we borrowed from clubs and individuals to grow more food this season.”Mr. Diggs said the Union has been appealing for assistance for the past one year without success.Mr. Alexander Goaye, head of the Fair Labour Farmers Union, said they have plans to expand their production to grow cocoa and also raise goats and sheep.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Norton admits drug procurement change led to countrywide shortages

first_img… staff pressured to cancel bids, re-tender to accommodate favoured companies ― sourceThe explosive revelations about collusion in the drug procurement system are just the tip of the iceberg in an avalanche of corruption which thrives in the local health sector, former Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton disclosed.Former Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton“It is much, much more than we can ever imagine. I am going to say this, that report is probably the tip of the iceberg; you’ve got much more information to come,” Dr Norton revealed to Guyana Times during an exclusive interview at his new office within the Ministry of the Presidency.Dr Norton, who was recently transferred from his post as Public Health Minister following an influx of negative publicity that erupted over the drug bond scandal, had requested an independent investigation be launched into the drug procurement process after he suspected mass malpractice within the process.A Board of Inquiry (BoI), headed by retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Winston Cosbert, was established and conducted a three-week probe into the system.The report, which was leaked to the media ahead of Cabinet’s consideration, unearthed shocking instances of collusion between suppliers and Health Ministry staffers.The report also recommended that a senior Health Ministry official be fired for his role in these malpractices.Missing drugsDr Norton, during his 18 months at the Public Health Ministry, noticed instances where drugs which were ordered could not have been found, and only upon inquiry, did staffers inform him about the situation.“When medical supplies left the central bond, there was no correspondence to say that this amount left and this amount was delivered. The other thing is when you were told you were expecting so much medication, only after you found that the medication is short, then you are told that all did not come,” the Minister explained, reflecting on one instance when he summoned staff to his office and demanded an explanation for the confusion within the system.Dr Norton strongly believes that information was being deliberately withheld from him.CredibilityAnother issue plaguing the drug procurement process is the absence of verification procedures on the credibility of the suppliers of drugs to the Public Health Ministry.This deficiency resulted in the situation whereby the Ministry was procuring drugs from a blacklisted Trinidadian pharmaceutical firm called Western Scientific.“I tried to find some information about a particular company known as Western Scientific, and I defended this company because I needed their drug as urgent as possible because we were having a shortage, only to find out that this company was blacklisted by IDB [Inter-American Development Bank] because of so many corrupt practices,” Dr Norton recalled.The BoI discovered that a female employee of the Ministry admitted during her testimony that she had in fact spoken to a bidder from the Trinidadian company, which was soliciting inside information.The BoI also found that an accountant attached to the Ministry’s Materials Management Unit approached a senior staff at the Ministry with proof that the same female employee was giving insider information to a bidder, but he failed to act on it.As such, the report noted that the senior official was “wilfully evasive and deceptive” during his testimony.False certificationsFurthermore, the Minister explained that when the procurement process became open to competitive bidding, the influx of bidders made it challenging to do background checks on every bidder even though they met the criteria.“You asking me to go to each one of these companies that are bidding in spite of the fact that they reach all the criteria there; I don’t know their background, I only worked 18 months there…It is really asking quite a lot for me to swear about the integrity of every company,” he stated.Dr Norton added, “And I am not making excuses: I am telling persons what is actually on the ground. I am not begging for sympathy; I am saying it as it is.”He noted too that some companies would submit the required documents, but only later it would be discovered that the paperwork was fraudulent.“In order for you to supply certain things like reagent, you need a certificate of authorisation from manufacturing company. Information was provided that some of these letters of certification were false,” the Minister disclosed.He noted that the Ministry needed to do in-depth research into each bidder to ensure they were above board, an undertaking which would require much work that could not have been sorted out in 18 months.ChangeThe Minister conceded that the change in the drug procurement system also made the process quite challenging, resulting in countrywide shortages and opening avenues for malpractices to occur.But he maintained that the change was needed since it was unfair to continue along the lines of sole sourcing.“You are changing a system with the same persons involved, with short staff and persons who are simply not qualified, with the infrastructure not in place, you will run into difficulties…I want the nation to know that that CoI was asked for by me, because you were given information, to be told that you have everything under control – only to find yourself on the limb again,” he stated.He explained too that with the new system (whereby the Regions submit the list of drugs they want to purchase and the monies budgeted for the Regions are sent to the Ministry for bulk purchases in order to benefit from economies of scale) created many shortcomings.“It’s the change that caused the difficulties,” the Minister admitted.Nonetheless, he was adamant that the change in the system was needed and with adequate and competent staff, the process could be strengthened to work for the public’s benefit.Sole sourcedMeanwhile, a source closed to the Public Health Ministry has confirmed that the ministry is engaged in sole sourcing more than ever before. For example, soon after the 2015 elections, the Ministry sole sourced $300 million in drugs from the International Dispensary Association (IDA) and paid 100 per cent in advance. Then, aside from Western Scientific, there is a second Trinidadian favoured company that gets all the contracts for kidney dialysis for millions of US dollars by bypassing tender procedures. As the BoI also revealed, a favoured new company was caught actively faking important documentation on the road to securing yet another sole-sourced contract for nearly $100 million in critical HIV diagnostic products. Most, if not all, of these items, circumvent the Food and Drug Department’s registration guidelines and so there is no system of quality checks to protect the citizens of Guyana.RetendersAnother source at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) has revealed to this publication that despite experiencing pressing and critical shortages of drugs and medicines, the Ministry and hospital were often pressured to cancel bids and re-tender them so as to facilitate favoured companies. Valuable time and financial resources are squandered in this manner, not to mention it is unfair to legitimate bidders.In other instances, the closing dates for tenders are extended to accommodate the preferred bidder(s).Prequalification systemAs the Minister now tragically admits, it was the change in the drug procurement system, which led to countrywide shortages. Prior to May 2015, the then Government operated a prequalification system which shortlisted companies on the basis of: (a) quality control procedures; (b) financial capacity; (c) infrastructural (as in warehousing) capacity; and (d) human resource skills to supply essential drugs and medicines. The prequalification system was designed under World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines and proved effective against the same problems to which the Minister now alludes above. At the minimum, there can be no doubt that the prequalification system ensured that critical medicines were consistently available in the requisite quality and quantity.

Huskies lose nailbiter in Peace River

first_imgThe Huskies return to home ice next weekend, for a set of games.  On Friday, the pups host Grande Prairie, before taking on the Slave Lake Wolves on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The Huskies engaged in another epic battle in Peace River on Saturday, coming out on the short end of an overtime thriller. Steven Fast scored the only two goals of the first period, first redirecting a Kole Norris pass into the top shelf, and then deflecting a Tyson Pederson shot, after a great pinch from Payden Wongstedt to keep the play alive. The Navigators scored the only goal of the second period, when Brendan Dickson shoveled a Kurt Konopelka centring pass past Ty Gullickson, for a powerplay goal. – Advertisement -The Huskies extended their lead to 3-1 early in the third, when Cody Kalb scored his own powerplay goal, firing past Cole Roberts, on a nice cross-seam pass from Wongstedt. But, after doing a much better job of protecting the lead than they had done on Friday night in Dawson Creek, the Huskies finally succumbed to the Peace River attack.  With 1:27 remaining in the third period, new Navigator addition Sean Menton got the Navs within one.  Then, with 26 seconds remaining, the Navs tied it up, on a goal from Corson Fairless. With all the momentum in Peace River’s favour, the game went into 4-on-4 overtime.   Early in the extra frame, Kole Norris was charged with a tripping penalty.  The Huskies killed off the 4-on-3 advantage, but shortly thereafter, Sean Menton found the puck on his stick in the slot, and fired it into the top corner, giving the Navigators a dramatic win. Advertisement Despite the tough loss, the Huskies coaching staff suggested that their team had played well, with the exception of the final two minutes of regulation.  “Our effort was definitely better tonight” said Assistant Coach Jeremy Clothier.  “We playing more of a complete game tonight, we just had a few meltdowns in the third period, but it happens.”  Clothier also pointed out how much Peace River had improved since earlier in the season.  “They have good coaching.   They’re real good defensively … they don’t give you a lot, and they’ve brought in a few players” Clothier said, pointing to Sean Menton as a key addition, adding some offensive firepower to a typically defensive-minded team.  “Our D-men pinched up a few times when they shouldn’t have” Clothier said of the late Peace River comeback.   “When you’re up two goals you’ve just got to play smart … we did get pucks in deep tonight, which is an improvement over last night, but we still have a little work to do on that.” Click here to listen to a highlights package from Saturday’s game.

No panic ahead of Continental debut-Muluya

first_img0Shares0000Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya gives out instructions during a training session at the Utalii Complex, in Nairobi on November 25, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 26 – Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya says his charges are calm but excited ahead of their debut in continental football on Tuesday when they face Djibouti’s Arta Solar in the first leg of the CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round at the Kasarani Stadium.Sharks playing in only their second season in top flight football handed themselves a ticket to the Confederations Cup after winning the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Cup title with a 3-2 conquest over Sofapaka. “The atmosphere in training has been very good and the behavioral actions from the players is encouraging. They are willing to get into action and expecting a good outing on Tuesday. It is a good platform for them to show what they can do,” Muluya told Capital Sports.He added; “There is no kind of panic and the best thing is that we are starting at home so that gives the players a bit of confidence to go in and do well.”Sharks come into the match against a Djibouti side that finished eight out of 10 teams in their league and only picked a ticket to the competition after Ports who finished second in the league declined to participate.Kariobangi Sharks players sip in during a water break during a training session at the Utalii Complex, in Nairobi on November 25, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluDespite their small and unknown pedigree, Muluya is not underrating them and has vowed his players will give their best to get a win and progress to the first round.“What I know about them is that most of them are in their national team and they are a team which likes to play possession football. We only know a few things about them but despite that we will not underrate them,” Muluya noted.“We will try and concentrate on improving our own play and with that we can always have a good chance of winning. It is our first match of the new season and we would like to kick off with a win,” added the tactician.Sharks will throw their young squad into the match and their squad hasn’t been helped much with key departures and injuries.Kariobangi Sharks new signing, defender Tom Teka makes a pass under pressure from teammate Moses Mwangi during training session at the Utalii Complex, in Nairobi on November 25, 2018.

I will not look at it as a problem but more for the opportunities it will present,” Muluya said.He further explained; “Bolton’s departure was quite untimely, but you know you cannot hold on to a player who got a better offer and would like to better his life. We are victims of our own success because they (Bolton and Ogweno) left because of their good performance in the team,”“I will believe in the players who have remained in the team and move forward.”Further, defender Geoffrey Shiveka will miss with injury while goalkeeper John Oyemba and midfielder Sven Yidah have just returned to training after recovering from long term injuries.Kariobangi Sharks midfielder Sven Yidah enjoys a chat with teammate Moses Mwangi during training session at the Utalii Complex, in Nairobi on November 25, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluIt is Shiveka’s injury that has perhaps hurt Muluya the most, but he has called on his players to step up and cover for their injured assistant captain.“When your leader is missing it is tough but again, it means everyone has to become a leader. It is a blow for us and now the responsibility is on the whole team. In the Shield final we missed out top scorer Kapaito (Eric) but the others stepped in to fill his void,” Muluya opined.The club has also signed youngsters Peter Ogutu, Finley Osoro and Alvin Mang’eni all from High School while central defender John Otieno joins in from Nakuru All Stars.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
