The story of how Guyana’s former First Lady endured countless acts of domestic violence and state victimisation while living with a shameless beast who was elected to serve and protect the people of Guyana. Former President Jagdeo’s treatment of his wife is an extension of his treatment to all Guyanese who dared oppose him. There are many who turn a blind eye to this coward, they praise him for what he has done, but I can’t shake the idea that if a man could be so cruel to his wife for what he believed was opposing him, think of how cruel he could be to an average citizen to whom he had no attachment or no obligation.

i’ll just revisit what i’ve written before
many east indians in guyana are suffering from stockholm syndrome
my previous conclusion of east indians being held hostage was incomplete hence my switch to saying they are victims of stockholm syndrome. cause hostage means one is captured. but as we see in Guyana while not being physically held in captivity, the love of the abuser/aggressor many east indians display can be more properly explained in the expanded definition
Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.”
