“I begged for my life” – kidnapped taxi driver recalls harrowing ordeal

first_imgCamp Street jailbreak…no protection needed – Top CopTwenty-two-year-old Matthew Shivtahal who was abducted by four high-profile murderers following the jailbreak at the Camp Street Penitentiary on Sunday evening said he begged for his life as he recounted the harrowing ordeal.The traumatised father of one, who was scared for his life, trotted though thickReleased taxi driver, Matthew Shivtahalvegetation, swamps, trenches and several hives as soon as he was given the green light to go by wanted fugitive Mark Royden Durant, also called “Mark Williams” and “Smallie”.Although Durant’s cohorts were against the idea of releasing the young man, the alleged mastermind behind the prison break directed Shivtahal through a path that would lead to his freedom. After following that path, he finally saw light and ended up at the back of Annandale, East Coast Demerara on Monday evening at about 22:00h.There, the muddied and shaken man requested a telephone call from a shop owner but in turn, the proprietor enquired the reason for the telephone call and during his explanation, he was overheard by an off-duty Police rank, who subsequently escorted him to the Vigilance Police Station where he was questioned and referred to the Georgetown Public Hospital to seek medical attention.Just after 05:00h on Tuesday, Shivtahal was reunited with his wife and one year-old son. Speaking at his home on Tuesday morning, the man explained that on Sunday he went to pick up a customer and her children at Industry, East Coast of Demerara and on his way to the East Bank of Demerara, he drove through the city.In the vicinity of Broad and Camp Streets, he was confronted by the four armed men who pushed the woman and her children out of the vehicle but as he was about to exit the vehicle, the men shoved him back in the car, held him at gunpoint and ordered him to drive.According to the still visibly shaken man, the armed men instructed him to drive toSouth Ruimveldt, Georgetown where they abandoned the car and ran into the backlands. Since then, it was crossing trenches and swamps until they reached the 7-Door Sluice at Land of Canaan on the East Bank of Demerara.“When we reach deh, we supposed to go over the big trench and I can’t swim so, they said instead for me to slow them down is best they kill me. I deh begging them and tell them that I get a one-year-old son and that I wouldn’t like he to grow up without a father and it was the Rasta one who say just because I tell them that, they go let me go,” he stated.However, he recalled that during the ordeal, he was kept at bay as they made their telephone calls but he overheard them speaking about heading to the Soesdyke/Linden Highway.Nevertheless, he further stated that only two of the men were armed with suspected pistols. In addition, he noted that during the trekking in the backlands, they had nothing to eat or drink while confirming that none of the men were injured, as was suspected following the jail break.While they were discrete in their interactions among each other, Shivtahal explained that the men did not seem fearful of being recaptured while noting that at no point did the men speak about their involvement in the fire at the Camp Street Prison.“When we were walking down, they see the fire because it was so big and they said look it done deh.They did talking stuff that they don’t want me to hear so they were keeping it on low,” the man recalled.In a more relaxed condition, he stated that it was while at the Vigilance Police Station he was told that the men set the prison on fire and there was a shootout at the jail while noting that upon his abduction, he was not aware that there was a situation at the Camp Street Prison.Meanwhile, Shivtahal noted that upon reaching the Vigilance Police Station, he was given a bottle of water and something to eat by a Sergeant, who later transported him to the Brickdam Police Station. Now that he is at home with his family, the young man said “it’s an overwhelming joy… honestly to go through what I went through and come out alive is just God’s grace, honestly.”He nevertheless has to report to the Brickdam Police Station to be further questioned. It is believed that the four men who held the taxi driver captive are Mark Durant; Uree Varswyck, also known as “Malcolm Gordon”; Stafrei Hopkinson Alexander and “Nasta Man”.When contacted, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud told Guyana Times that he sees no reason for the young man to be given Police protection, adding that if the fugitives wanted him dead, they would have done so since he was abducted.last_img read more

Use the force

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a city council concerned itself with irrelevancies. Members passed silly resolutions rather than tending to the serious matters of the day. This government is purely fictional, mind you. It’s nothing like, oh, the Los Angeles City Council of today, which is currently considering the weighty matter of … a resolution to make May 25 “Star Wars Day” in Los Angeles. Oh sure, joyless Sith lords might complain about such a campy way to celebrate Star Wars on its 30th anniversary. They might even note the absurdity of the council cheering a Star Wars convention that will be coming into town at the end of the month while council members have been urging conventioneers to boycott L.A. hotels. But the politics of frivolity are a good distraction from the absence of politics of substance. A clever ploy this is – beware the dark side.last_img read more

‘England can’t afford to waste that many chances again’, warns Allardyce

first_img Sterling and Lingard were a constant threat for England but there was just no end product “Both of our goals came off corners, which is a great asset to have, but the goals have to be scored in open play.“At this level, you can’t afford to miss those chances. They fell to Alli, Lingard and Sterling, to all the goalscorers, and we still couldn’t put them in. They need to put that right.“They made hard work of it but they got what they deserved, they got the win and they can move forward.”A draw would have been a potentially damaging result for England, but Big Sam believes the last-gasp win has put them on course for the knock-out stages ahead of their next clash against minnows Panama.Allardyce added: “England completely dominated the game and we’ve seen a lot of big teams who haven’t performed as well as England at the start of this tournament, so let’s hope they grow into it.“I don’t see them having any problems against Panama, so for me, that victory has put us through the group.”Listen to Sam Allardyce on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above! 3 talkSPORT PLAYER RATINGS: Three Lions stars rated and slated after dramatic victoryGareth Southgate’s side were dominant throughout the Volgograd clash, but were frustrated in the box as the likes of Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard, Rahmeem Sterling and John Stones missed glorious opportunities to add to the scoreline.And former England boss Allardyce has warned the team they cannot afford to be as wasteful in front of goal again as they aim to make the last-16.Giving his verdict on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Big Sam said: “The first half performance, while I thought it was very good, I got slightly worried about the lack of finishing quality with the amount of quality chances we created.

Kevin Keegan urges Ashley to sell Newcastle and hails Benitez on talkSPORT

first_img getty It appears the hated Magpies chief is attempting to patch up his broken relationship with the club, having attended Newcastle’s last two Premier League games after going 16 months without watching his team play.Newcastle are still without a win in seven games this season and Ashley took the team and manager Rafael Benitez out for dinner this week in a perceived attempt to boost morale.But Keegan, who clashed with Ashley during an ill-fated second spell as manager, appears to be having none of it.Asked if he has a message for the Newcastle owner, Keegan told talkSPORT host Jim White: “Sell the club and let’s hope and pray somebody who takes it over realises what they’ve got.“I long for him to go because he’s not right for that club.“He bought Newcastle like a wealthy man would buy a yacht or an expensive car.“You can’t do that with football clubs, with the passion in the cities and the towns, and if there’s one club in the world you can’t do it with it’s the one he chose in Newcastle United.“He cannot treat it like he does one of his shops.” Newcastle fans have campaigned to get Ashley out of the club Keegan’s second spell as Newcastle manager lasted just eight months after he fell out with Ashley over a lack of investment – sound familiar? 3 “I’ve got maximum respect for Rafael Benitez, he’s the only thing keeping the supporters sane at the moment.“They get it, they like him. Any other manager with the results he’s had this season would be under-fire, but the Newcastle fans understand what’s happening.“I think Rafa is doing fantastically. He can’t be getting the hassle I got, otherwise he wouldn’t still be there.“But I think he’s still getting some of the problems that were there ten years ago.”Listen back to Kevin Keegan on talkSPORT above! Keegan also hailed manager Rafael Benitez for sticking with the club despite his frustration over transfers.The St James’ Park legend says having the Spanish coach in charge is the ‘only thing keeping fans sane’ and insists he is not under pressure despite the team’s dreadful start to the campaign.Speaking about his troubles with Ashley, Keegan added: “There doesn’t seem to be any real long-term planning or strategy.“There wasn’t any when I was there in that short eight months. It was hard as manager to get any idea of what the vision for his football club was. That’s very difficult – the direction has to come from the top. Kevin Keegan has sent a stern message to Newcastle United’s much-maligned owner Mike Ashley: “Sell the club to somebody who cares!”The former Toon star and boss – a legendary figure in the club’s history – joined talkSPORT on Friday to have his say on the turmoil at St James’ Park.Angry supporters have campaigned for the billionaire retail tycoon to leave for years due to his lack of investment and an apparent lack of interest in the club.Ashley has been heavily criticised for his regular absence at games over his 11-year reign at the club, although that has changed in recent weeks. 3 3 Benitez is adored by many Newcastle fans last_img read more
