Coach hails Windies ‘A’ success

first_imgCOLOMBO, Sri Lanka (CMC): Head coach Graeme West believes West Indies A’s resounding success in the one-day series against Sri Lanka is testament to the quality of players in the Caribbean first-class system, and a reminder of the importance of playing more cricket outside of the region. The one-day side whitewashed the hosts 3-0, producing a series of dominant batting displays to win every game comprehensively and compensate for the four-day side’s 2-1 defeat in the preceding unofficial ‘Test’ series. West said once the development shown during the series here continued, the pool of players from which the international squad was selected would be significantly enhanced. “It goes to show they are a number of players that are emerging from the first-class franchise system and they need to have opportunities to play overseas, to play against quality opposition to kind of assess where they are at and also to develop their skills and broaden their range of method, in order to be able to support the current players that are in the senior team,” West said. “If we can develop a stronger pool of players to supplement what we currently have, it starts to put a little bit more pressure on those players who are currently in position [in the senior side], and when injury or loss of form come along, then there are more players who are able to step up and perform to a good level that will produce positive results.” West Indies A started impressively, routing Sri Lanka A by 165 runs in Dambulla and followed up with a 109-run victory in the second game in Karunegala, after piling up a stunning 347 runs. The visitors won a rain-hit contest on Sunday, pulling off an eight-run win under the Duckworth-Lewis method, as they once again went past 300. Opener Kyle Hope, captain Jason Mohammed and Andre McCarthy all managed hundreds, while the exciting Rovman Powell slammed a pair of half-centuries. “It was a great achievement. In the three games we played, we had some outstanding performances from many of the players in the squad,” West said as he praised the side’s performance. “Certainly [in the final game], McCarthy coming into the team and scoring a fantastic hundred was one of the highlights, and it just goes to show the depth and quality we had in our squad.”last_img read more

Zuma’s removal was long overdue

first_imgDear Editor,The ruling African National Congress of Azania (still named South Africa), has finally removed Jacob Zuma as president. Zuma will be remembered as one of Africa’s most inept Heads of State. He will also be remembered for his shameful collusion with the imperial powers in the destruction of Libya and the brutal killing of one of Africa’s greatest leaders, Muammar Qaddafi.Like Thabo Mbeki before him, Zuma’s pursuit of neo-liberal economic policies has created a new class — a parasitic, bureaucratic bourgeoisie who work hand in hand with transnational and Boer capital to enrich themselves, their families and friends, all the while calling it “Black empowerment”. Truth be told, Azania has moved from apartheid to neo-apartheid. As the great revolutionary Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture pointed out, “Black visibility and Black faces in high places does not necessarily translate into Black Power”.Enter Cyril Ramaphosa, the new president, and one of the wealthiest men in Africa. Guyanese need to know that Ramophosa was a director of the Lonmin Mining Company and a senior member of the governing ANC when, in 2012, the South African Security Forces were given the order to shoot workers striking against Lonmin. In total, 34 workers were gunned down by Police.Referred to as the Marikana Massacre, this shocking act of State terrorism was eerily reminiscent of actions taken by the White Apartheid Regime of days gone by. A former leader of the National Union of Mineworkers, Ramaphosa, in an email between Lonmin management and government officials the day before the massacre, stated, “The terrible events that have unfolded cannot be described as a labour dispute. They are plainly dastardly criminal acts and must be characterised as such…there needs to be concomitant action to address this situation”.Ramaphosa was directly responsible for the company’s failure to abide by its commitment to build 5,500 houses for employees, instead completing only three dwellings. It was this and low wages that the striking workers were protesting.After more than two decades of ANC rule, the majority of Azanians are still without basic necessities, such as decent housing, electricity and healthcare, while the wealth of the country is plundered by foreign capital.The truth is that the ANC has betrayed its own Freedom Charter, and is quite content to manage a neo-colonial arrangement, facilitating EU and US control of African resources, not unlike the PNCR, who have betrayed the Sophia Declaration, and are also facilitating the plunder of Guyana’s resources in the name of “Black empowerment”.Like Organization for the Victory of the People (OVP) here in Guyana, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) under the leadership of former ANC youth leader Julius Malema are leading the charge when it comes to resisting neoliberalism and completing the national liberation struggle initiated by the African National Congress, Pan Africanist Congress, Azanian People’s Organization, and others.The EFF is now the third largest party in both houses of Parliament, having received 1,169,259 votes in the 2014 elections. Its members dress as miners and maids in parliament to reflect the people they represent. With more than half a million members and growing, they have relentlessly opposed Zuma’s corrupt leadership and the ANC’s neo-liberal agenda. Their battle cry is “economic justice in our lifetime”.EFF has just issued a statement vowing to oppose Ramaphosa, stating that he is every bit as corrupt as Zuma.In Azania, as in Guyana, Black faces in high places has not translated into liberation for Black people, who remain impoverished, exploited and marginalized despite the vast wealth of their countries. In both countries, the struggle for true independence, economic justice, human advancement and dignity in a genuinely multi-cultural society continues.God willing, our day will come.Sincerely,Gerald A PerreiraLeaderOrganisation for theVictory of the People(OVP)last_img read more
