5 new Toshaos elected to lead communities in Region 10

first_imgSeveral new Toshaos were recently elected to serve their respective communities of Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) for the next year.Following the elections, which were held for the various communities, Andre Lindee was elected Toshao of Sandhills; while Wayvon King was elected to head the Wiruni village; Ricky Boye will take up the top post for Kimbia; Ken Campbell will serve Calcuni village and Winsbert Benjamin will lead the Hururu Village.Vice Chairman of Region 10, Elroy Adolph, who was present at the elections said he was pleased with the level of democracy displayed in the communities. The communities did not have an election for the past three years.Adolph further urged the newly-elected Toshaos to work collaboratively with the people of the regions to foster development.In the area of transparency as it relates to funds, Adolph said this has been a sore issue in the past and urged the new Toshaos to be accountable.“They must be transparent. Some Toshaos believe that they are the boss over the finances. Many areas do not give proper accountability, so I am pleading with them to work together to give proper accountability and to cooperate,” Adolph noted.Elymewell Barkoye, who is part of the newly-elected Council at Hururu, also noted that one of the first orders of business will be the reporting of funds which might have been misused in the past, as he pointed out that an investigation is expected to be launched.Barkoye said it will be a hard task since approximately $20 million of the community’s funds which it garners from forestry and other activities has reportedly been misused.last_img read more
