He added, “It is a disgrace to know that we had cotton there, we had blackeye, all of these products coming out of there and nothing is left.”According to Pereira, the Ex-GNS Association was recently informed that the lands at Kimbia were given out to some private company to do soya planting.He suggested that part of the lands now be returned to them, “so we can do something that people can remember”.There was also calls for the reintroduction of the GNS, perhaps, excluding the military aspect of it, and for the use of Kimbia as the space to put a large training centre for all the skills training schools in Guyana.The ex-GNS members also aired concerns over the use of the GNS Sports Club.They explained that they are not getting to properly use the facility built by them.

Before its controversial dismantling in 2000, over 20,000 youths were trained in various para-military and life skills.The Veterans Commission of Inquiry was set up by President David Granger and tasked with examining the conditions and circumstances facing veterans of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), the Guyana People’s Militia and GNS. The COI which formally commenced interviews on August 31st, is scheduled to conclude this month.
