    I urge Honorable President David Granger to enforce street harassment laws to prevent boys and men from treating our women as sexual objects.

    If President David Granger does not increase the Age of Consent to 21 in Guyana, I will contact UNICEF to have the Government of Guyana sanctioned for promoting child marriages and sexual exploitation of our girls.

    A girl under 21 is not ready for sex or marriage. She should focus on her education. Raising the age of consent to 21 will eliminate the sex offenders in our society.

  5. It is really sad that this young boy was killed but there are two issues being highlighted about youth from this incident.
    1. I know it is summer but what is a 13 year old doing out at 11 pm in the night?
    2. Why would an 11 year old feel that he can use a cutlass to solve an issue?

    A really sad case when the victim was actually the perpetrator.
