Govt outreach brings relief to citizen battling land dispute

DPI, Guyana, Tuesday, April 30, 2019

For 52-year-old Vanessa Albert, today’s ministerial outreach held at the Wismar Market, Linden, Region 10 was the answer to resolving a longstanding land issue.

Albert explained to the Department of Public Information (DPI) that despite the fact she is the sole heir to her late mother’s property in Blueberry Hill, there continues to be a dispute between family members concerning the land.

She said after hearing of the outreach, she took the opportunity to visit the Ministry of Citizenship to acquire a copy of her mother’s death certificate as the next step to addressing the matter.

“My mother passed away recently, and since then everything has been going haywire. I cannot get the rights for her land. They [family] are fighting me and I really want to have some sort of answer to this issue,” she explained.

The emotional Albert said that she is currently unable to work due to an injury she suffered while tending to cash crops she cultivates in her backyard.

The Lindener will soon uplift a copy of her mother’s death certificate from the Wismar Hospital and then take the matter further. Albert plans to visit the Ministry of Legal Affairs to bring the matter to a conclusion.
