An alleged plot to kill Guyana’s President, David Granger, is currently being investigated by police.
According to Demerara Waves Online, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, confirmed the investigation Thursday during a post cabinet briefing.
According to Harmon, the administration was supplied with the information by the Guyana Police Force.
The minister was quoted as saying that the investigation is currently ongoing and as such he was not at liberty to disclose information.
Harmon disclosed that that the investigators have sought legal advice on proceeding with the matter.
Demerara Waves Online said it understands that information of the plot surfaced sometime last month with a $7M bounty to shoot at President Granger during one of his outreaches reportedly already being paid.
Speaking to a possible motive, Minister Harmon suggested the president may simply be a victim of his populism across the country.
