Guyana President, Separated Wife In Public Spat

The president of Guyana and his wife have had another public disagreement.

Former first lady Varshnie Singh said in a statement that security agents barred her from the presidential house. She has lived there in separate quarters from President Bharrat Jagdeo since their separation in 2007.

She also demanded certain government concessions and retention of what she described as “first lady privileges”. Later, President Jagdeo issued a separate statement saying the decision to tell his former wife to vacate was “painful,” but she had reneged on numerous promises to move out.

Mr Jagdeo added he was prepared to meet all his legal obligations to his wife but could not provide his her fe with any government resources.
