‘Fine Man’s Gang’ a child army -‘Mud up’, 16, ‘Chung Boy, 16, Sancho, 14

‘Fine Man’s Gang’ a child army -‘Mud up’, 16, ‘Chung Boy, 16, Sancho, 14
By Dale Andrews

Evidence has emerged that the gang controlled by Guyana’s most wanted man, Rondell ‘Fine Man’ Rawlins, consists mainly of teenage boys who fled from their homes in the village of Buxton.


Recent evidence has brought out that many of the members of the gang are no more than 17 years old.
Dwayne Sancho, who was captured by the security forces on Monday in a trail near Ituni, is only 14 years old, while Otis Fiffee, called ‘Mud Up,’ who was killed during the initial raid two Fridays ago, and Robin Chung, called ‘Chung Boy’ were mere 17 and 16 years old respectively.

Initially, Fiffee’s age was stated as 21 years old; however, when this newspaper visited Buxton yesterday during his funeral, the age on his coffin was stated as 17. His parents had given the earlier age.
There is evidence that Rawlins and other senior members of his gang had initially recruited the teenagers as look-outs while the gang was hidi…

‘Child killers’ phenomenon a source of grave concern - AFC
The Alliance for Change (AFC) yesterday said that there should be sociological study into the root cause of the phenomenon of child killers.
According to party leader, Raphael Trotman, even if the current crop of child killers was to be wiped out if there was no investigation and intervention at the stage of the root causes then the next crop would be even more dangerous than present.
Trotman alluded to the fact that the new breed of criminals was becoming younger and younger with criminals such as Nasty Man and others having been spawned ever since 1992.
Trotman said that his party was very concerned given that the young men were being adversely influenced and apparently did not see themselves as having a life in Guyana such as growing up, going to school, getting a job and being married among other things, “as God intended them to do”.
He noted that because of the prevailing circumstances, they (child killers) are being converted…

Dwayne Sancho’s mother reportedly said her son joined the gang

Islam does not tolerate aberrant, forbidden practices
DEAR EDITOR
Philosophical indeed are the words of Cecil Simeon Ramcharran’s mother: you live by the sword; you die by the sword. (KN 2008.06.18). Thus ends the murderous saga of the chief recruiter of the teenage Buxton gang of murderers headed by ‘Fine Man’ Rawlins.

His sister reportedly said that, “he called in the early days, and when advised to leave, he would say he was into something and cannot come out.” She was then quoted as saying, “I use to attack the police for him when they tried to assault him.”

Dwayne Sancho’s mother reportedly said her son joined the gang just after he became a teenager and that on several occasions he was forcibly returned home by older relatives who urged him to change his ways.

Otis Fiffee’s mother, Wendy Fiffee is quoted as saying, “I talk to he over and over! He get licks. He used to say, ‘ na mind me business, people a cochore and dem go dead…” This was a seventeen year old boy speaking to his moth…

Where are the fathers?
DEAR EDITOR,
One of the questions that most people are grappling with is how is it possible that those who are responsible for the recent massacres are mere teenagers.
Kaieteur News reported recently that the gang which is controlled by wanted man Rondell ‘Fine Man’ Rawlins consists of mainly teenage boys - Otis Fiffe - 17 years old, Robin Chung -16 years old and Dwayne Sancho - 19 years old.
At such tender ages these young men should have been in school studying, but instead, they were a part of a notorious gang, planning who next to rob and kill.
Where are the fathers? This is the question that startles me.
From the recent media reports, it seems as though only the mothers are around to give accounts for the lives of these young boys. Had their fathers been in the home, the outcome of their lives may have been different.
Many young men today have been raised in families where fathers have negle…
