The People’s Progressive Party, PPP, has reprimanded Minister of Local Government and Regional Development in Guyana, Kellawan Lall.

Mr. Lall was reprimanded for his recent conduct in a rum shop brawl with a teenager in November. Mr. Lall reportedly discharged his licensed firearm during the brawl.

General secretary of the party, Donald Ramotar, said Mr. Lall was spoken to very firmly about the incident. Mr. Ramotar says Mr. Lall behaved inappropriately in discharging his firearm in public.

Mr. Lall has not made a public statement on the issue
