The Wismar Hospital in Region Ten (Upper Demerara-Berbice) has seen some upgrades and improvement with the functioning of its maternity and children wards but other pressing issues have been raised in relation to the movement of resources to other institutions.Regional Chairman of the Regional Democratic Council Renis Morian shared some of his concerns after a visit was made to the hospital in the company of Regional Executive Officer, Orrin Gordon.Region Ten Chairman, Renis MorianDirector of Regional Health Services, Kay Shako was criticised for removing doctors from the medical facility and placing them elsewhere. This did not go well the Chairman, who noted that when these decisions are made, improvements are hampered.“Every time we put and improve things at the hospital, they move it and carry it somewhere else and this is the challenge…Now I think we have three doctors working there and now somebody from Georgetown want to move the body from here and take them to Georgetown. We are now bringing up our services to par, it hasn’t meet par that it was before, but we are now trying,” he said.Morian said that he intends to raise this matter with the subject Minister, Volda Lawrence, to find a permanent resolution since there are also intentions of moving the sole x-ray technician to another facility.“What is happening to us, that is the lone x-ray technician, what is really happening to us? But we objecting to it, we will object to it,” he declared.Director of the Regional Health Services, Kay ShakoIn expressing strong and direct words to the Public Health Ministry, the Regional Chairman voiced his condemnation of these actions by saying, “The Regional Democratic Council [of] Region Ten is working very hard to bring it back to where it was before, every time we say that we coming to par somebody pulling away, we don’t support on behalf of the residents of Upper Demerara-Berbice. Primarily, I want to be quoted as saying that Dr Shako can take doctors from elsewhere to send wherever she wants”.The argument continued as he noted that this may be a deliberate attempt to stall progress in the region. The Regional Chairman said that every time the region is making gains, it is being reduced.
2 The referee for England v Tunisia, Wilmer Roldan, has a complicated history with VAR. Last year’s Confederations Cup match between Cameroon and Germany saw a case of mistaken identity and a yellow card turned to a red all in the same incident and Roldan was in charge. https://t.co/92sDbMpijP— Anton Toloui (@SkyAnton) June 17, 2018 Tunisia were awarded a soft penalty in the first-half to the disbelief of the England players So done with this referee. It’s a total farce.— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) June 18, 2018 How poor was the referee?? #ENGTUN— Alec Stewart (@StewieCricket) June 18, 2018 Kane nods home England’s last-gasp winner It’s never a good thing when the referee is the main talking point of a football match.However, Colombian referee Wilmer Roldan, who was put in charge of England’s World Cup opener against Tunisia, made a number of decisions that made him a big talking point. 2 But despite the jubilation across the country, many supporters took to Twitter to voice their reservations over the referee, including the likes of England’s record appearance holder Peter Shilton and England cricket legend Alec Stewart.Below you can see what just some England fans thought of Roldan. Got a feeling this referee doesn’t want England to win.— Sam McGuire (@SamMcGuire90) June 18, 2018 Great result for England dangerous from set plays and Kane did what a captain should.Some real positives but also one or two disappointing performances. Room for improvement also hope we don’t get such a bad referee again! @England @FIFAWorldCup— Peter Shilton (@Peter_Shilton) June 18, 2018 Watching Exeter in league two every other week, you get used to bad refereeing, this includes a horrorshow masterclass from now (somehow) Premier League ref Roger East.Wilmer Roldán though. WOW.#ENGTUN— Ben Pikssoc (@benpikssoc) June 18, 2018 Although England managed to win the game, many fans were not happy with Roldan’s officiating.REPORT: Tunisia 1-2 EnglandReplays showed Harry Kane was hauled to the floor numerous times in the box during the game but England were not awarded any penalties.And to anger the England faithful even more, Kyle Walker was penalised for an arguably soft clash in the box with Fakhreddine Ben Youssef.Ferjani Sassi scored the resulting spot-kick to peg England back after Harry Kane gave the Three Lions an early lead.It looked like it was going to be another frustrating game at a major tournament for England but Kane’s 90th-minute header gave Gareth Southgate’s men all three points. In short, VAR has left us at the mercy of just how weak or strong a referee is. Which is not progress.#ENGTUN— Danny Baker (@prodnose) June 18, 2018 Wilmer Roldan is the worst referee at the #WorldCup . Last year at the Confederations Cup sent off the wrong player. Four years ago at the World Cup disallowed two good Mexico goals for no reason.— Sam Street (@samstreetwrites) June 18, 2018 VARVariably Accurate Referee#ENGTUN— Dave Mountain (@twiddlemeister) June 18, 2018 Probably the first bad referee of the World Cup, and the same referee responsible for sending off the wrong player in the Confederations Cup, and also being responsible for River Plate’s Copa Libertadores exit after missing a blatant handball and penalty decision.— Dharma Bhagalia (@Kloppholic) June 18, 2018
