Several supporters of the Peoples’ Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) were this morning at the receiving end of some dirty water from an anti-PPP/C supporter.
According to reports emanating from the party’s Facebook page and later corroborated by police sources, the placard-bearing protestors were in the vicinity of Barrack and High Streets, Kingston, Georgetown, when a pregnant woman hurled a bucket of dirty water, thereby drenching both demonstrators and police officials.
PPP supporters, being led by party leader Bharrat Jagdeo, were at the time protesting the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM)’s intention to initiate house-to-house registration tomorrow in preparation of the impending general and regional elections.
A police source told the Guyana Standard that the woman was arrested and subsequently taken into police custody where she will likely be charged for provocation and disturbing a “peaceful” protest action. Police did not disclose the identity of the woman.
