I was pleasantly surprised at the customer service provided at our Housing Ministry and the minister should be commended and encouraged to motivate his staff to optimum level of service to the public.

Recent publications on sugar and energy research and development have shown the true worth of sugar, not only as the price for sugar is increasing but also as a sustainable source of energy, fine chemicals and biochemicals.

I have noted that a group of people seeking the interest of foreign yachties have held a meeting with Deputy Commissioner of Police Ewatski to voice concerns over the crime wave that seems to specifically target the yachties.

It is incomprehensible that poor people are blamed whenever crimes are committed in this country.
