The Guyana Chronicle continues to re-print Freddie’s Buxton conspiracy six-part series, first published in 2003 in a scandalous opposition media.
The opposition newspaper that published this series was baying for the blood of the Chronicle and the writer of an editorial which only issued a mild warning that the Buxton situation that spiraled out of control and made both major races victims of opposition strategy for state control could be replicated in Linden after the Buxtonians rejected their calls for conflagration once more and they turned their inflammatory rhetoric to Lindeners. This columnist burnt the Guyana Chronicle and called the writer of the editorial and the newspaper racist; and the opposition newspaper that published Freddie’s series sanctimoniously denounced both the writer and the state newspaper. Readers, judge for yourself the credibility (or lack) of the columnist and the newspaper publisher of that infamous publication.
IT is public knowledge that state security has put away Mr. Wild Man not only because of what happened outside of the presidential complex last year, but also because intelligence officials knew that he made the Andrew Douglas tape in Buxton in which Douglas appeared as a freedom fighter with machine gun in hand, promising to liberate Afro-Guyanese. Afro-Guyanese, I dare say, whom he never consulted on the method he would use in securing their freedom: something that Eusi Kwayana didn’t find funny! I don’t see myself particularly as East Indian, but if anyone claims that they are liberating East Indians, can you kindly contact me at my work place and let me know what methods you are going to employ to get me my freedom. And if it involves the abuse of Afro-Guyanese, then leave me unliberated; count me as your enemy.
It is when one considers the type of influence that Ocean Eleven came under that such a movement had to disintegrate into semi-civilized violence and animalistic hate against the race group that it was told stood in the way of the freedom of Black people. Take Mr. Wild Man. He wasn’t involved in the initial planning of the Mashramani ’02 jailbreak. But when Ocean Eleven settled down in Buxton to plan its Mansonian moonlighting (after Charles Manson, the hate-driven cultist), he was initiated into the teaching staff. It was in fact his idea along with Mr. Natty Dread who came up with the formula of a Douglas tape. The Buxton conspiracy was doomed from the start not only because its political agenda was subordinate to its criminal plan, but also because it had no one to instill a sense of political vision in it except Tacuma Ogunseye. For all his disagreement with me, Ogunseye stands out as the most positive, and the only positive, connection the Buxton conspiracy had. But Ogunseye’s politics though anti-criminal (yes I know you are surprised but I stand by this view) was too irrationally race-based and in the end he, too, bestowed the wrong symbol on Buxton. But back to Mr. Wild Man.
Hoyte had nothing but contempt for Mr. Wild Man because he saw him for what he was - an extremist, wild, unstable person infatuated with himself who showed no respect for established political leaders in the PNC and who thinks he is a leader better than those he came and met. There is the definite suspicion that Robert Corbin wants to keep his distance from Mr. Wild Man, who would have no hesitation in challenging Corbin publicly for leadership. The reason why I belaboured this point about Mr. Wild Man is to drive home the danger Guyana faced when criminals with guns and empty heads and dangerously misguided activists filling those heads with everything that was historically and politically wrong, went on the rampage. Indeed, an explosion had to occur and it did in Buxton!
The ubiquitous crime spree, which emanated from Buxton, had its genesis in the Mash 2002 jailbreak. But why did revolution give way to crime, and why at no time since February last year did the Buxton group which officially called itself the People’s Liberation Movement (PLM) issue a comprehensive statement about its aims and objectives? One must bear in mind that the PLM was the accommodating room for the escapees once they reached Buxton. To answer this question, one must understand that from the beginning, there was a fusion between crime and politics in Buxton with Tshaka Blair being the focal point. Whether Blair was killed rightfully or was murdered by the Black Clothes is not the germane point here. Blair had knowledge of guns and drugs in Buxton, just as he had a belief that there was discrimination against Blacks and wanted to do something about it. In all the writings of Eusi Kwayana on the Buxton madness, he subtly stressed on the criminal link with those who called their activities political. For a moralist like Kwayana to say that you are a freedom fighter and engaged in narco-trading and robberies is unbearable heresy. We would never know if Blair would have condoned rape and sadistic robberies and anti-Indian savagery (his widow is Indian) which is what the PLM degenerated into since February. But Blair’s protégés turned out to be killers of both Indians and Africans and no politics and no liberation habits could have been detected in their operations. A lot of sympathy has been garnered for Tshaka Blair through the talk-show hosts, certain television newscasts, the PNC and, to a lesser extent, the WPA. But Tshaka Blair was one of the masterminds behind the Mash Day jailbreak.
When Frank Soloman’s death announcement was placed on television it listed two infamous television personalities as his close friends. Blair, Soloman, one of these television personalities, three extremists/second tier leaders of the PNC, and two former military officers, planned the jailbreak with a former GDF officer being the main contact with a certain prison warder, whom he knew when they were both on active duty. After spending sometime in a suburban house rented by Soloman, the escapees moved to Buxton, was housed by Blair, turned into Ocean Eleven and lectured to by the PLM. Guyana’s second attempt at the violent overthrow of the state after the failed attempt by the WPA in the seventies had began. But if you had told Kwayana this at the time, he would have given you a brief, cynical look because Kwayana, as a Buxtonian, knew that men bent on crime were being used by certain political activists to create national confusion. Herein lay the truth about the escapees!
Andrew Douglas indeed had political grievances. Tshaka Blair indeed had some political feelings but the escapees plus the rest that made up Ocean Eleven were never into revolution or liberation struggle. What happened is that the PLM let them loose on Guyana so that their crime spree could undermine social stability, weaken the government, create circumstances of non-rule and allow for the creation of an interim regime. I have hard evidence that this was the plan. And figures in ACDA, the PNC and the WPA were solicited for advice and gave it. When Tshaka Blair got killed, the PLM met and formulated a policy of murder of policemen, with a leading WPA figure being present! That lone WPA person, however, was against the killing of Indians. After Andrew Douglas’s death, all hell broke loose. The formula was now the assassination of policemen, the killing of Indians, violent robberies that were later joined by kidnapping.
The dimension of kidnapping was the advice of the PLM. A killing spree began. Idris Chester’s house was burned down, Kwayana had to run, with David Hinds close behind him. The killing fields had arrived.
