The emotional businesswoman said that, despite being forced to comply with the demands of the angry mob, the drivers were forcefully taken from the driver’s seat by the protesters as they set the two trucks on fire.

“This is not fair. We work very hard and it is very hurtful. My husband is in the backdam every day and you look forward to when you harvest to reap the benefits but instead we are now in more losses. The trucks alone are over $12M and the paddy another $3M. We are innocent citizens that condemn the actions of those that killed the two boys but the innocent should not pay for actions of those monsters. We had nothing to do with that,” Bebi said.

Meanwhile, a minibus belonging to the Extra Easy Supermarket was burnt on Monday night and on Tuesday afternoon another minibus owned by a resident of Bush Lot, WCB was also set alight.
A minibus driver and passengers from #51 Village, Corentyne, were also relieved of cash and jewellery at Belladrum village. The driver of the Number 63 minibus said he had over $173,000 in cash on him that he had to return to customers he usually transact business with in the capital city.

He is still traumatised by the situation but is thankful for life and that his vehicle which he uses for his livelihood was not damaged.

A 30-year-old resident of Bush Lot, WCB was not as fortunate since his
motor car, a Toyota Voxy bearing registration number PTT 7335 was stolen on Tuesday morning in the vicinity of Number 28 Village, WCB when he tried to manoeuvre a blocked road by protesters, despite being escorted by the Joint Services ranks.

Bishraj Sukrah was returning from the East Coast to his home in Bush Lot when, in the vicinity of Number 28, his uncle who was driving his Voxy was attacked and beaten by the protesters.

As the protest actions continue, several other communities started putting fires on the roadways and more innocent citizens continue to be traumatised and robbed and beaten by late Tuesday night.

The protests have since shifted from peaceful to lawless. Home Affairs Minister, Robeson Benn, while briefly engaging protesters at Belladrum on Tuesday stated that, “We cannot pile crime on crime”.

He also appealed for them to restore peace in their communities

For most of us living abroad, Guyana is not the Guyana we used to know..
It has lost its moral compass and life has no value. This situation is redeemable only if our political parties abandon self preservation and its leaders cease and desist their unjust enrichment and self dealing.

No political leaders will abandon the only way they can win power, none is winning by the good things they have done for Guyana and Guyanese, now we will turn some into welfare recipients they will be hooked for a long time

The father of Isaiah, however, says he does not condone any of those actions.
In an interview with reporters this morning, he called on protesters to desist from such lawless actions. He noted that the protests, calling for justice for his son and nephew, should be done in an orderly manner.

“I am not racist. I still love my Indian brothers and sisters. I am not supporting unmoral protesting because I went out in Number 5 (Village) and I told them straight if you want to protest is our right, let we do it peacefully…We the nation cannot be fighting against one another because this is going on too long.”

“Let we not see this thing as black, white, Chinese or putagee (Portuguese) because if blackman did do this or a Chinese man did do this or any man did do this and if is not my family, I believe that he will have to pay the penalty and not no other people who looked like him and get the texture of hair like him, but the person who committed the act should pay for the crime,” the elder Henry said.
