New stadium for Linden – President Ali announces during impromptu visit


A new stadium is earmarked to be built in Linden, Region Ten, President Dr Irfaan Ali announced on Friday during an impromptu visit to the mining community.

“We are right now examining a number of sport facilities in Region Ten, some of which we will upgrade, but more importantly in the medium term, we have to build a new stadium for you,” the President announced to loud applause from scores of residents.

The Head of State did not provide further details on the new stadium for the mining town. Linden is known to produce some of the country’s most outstanding athletes and won the school’s National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming, and Track and Field Championships 19 times.

The new stadium will complement the $179 million synthetic track at the Bayroc Community Centre Ground in Wismar.

Last December, Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr., said that inclement weather has delayed the laying of the synthetic material for the new track.

Currently, there is only one synthetic track in Guyana, located at Leonora, West Coast Demerara.

    “the President announced to loud applause from scores of residents.”

    During Burnham time these people used to live in shacks and hardly had food, for the most part, but YET they solidly voted PNC.

    Now we are hearing about loud applause. We will see when election results come out.
