DPI, Guyana, Friday, July 26, 2019

The community of Quebanang, in the Upper Mazaruni, have received a boost to their transport. The community recently received a 40-horsepower boat engine from Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs. This will minimise travel time for students to get to school and villagers when conducting business.

On July 24, the engine was presented to Toshao of Jawalla, Harold Brown on behalf of the community, by Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Hon. Sydney Allicock in the presence of Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Samantha Fedee.

During the simple ceremony at the ministry’s Quamina Street office, Minister Allicock said his office was pleased to have been able to support the Village Council’s work programme. He encouraged the residents to ensure proper use and management of the engine.

Toshao Brown expressed his appreciation to the administration for its continued support to the development of the Indigenous peoples. Quebanang is the largest satellite village in Jawalla in Region 7.
