Base if you see the man in person he looked Afro Guyanese.  

Then one cannot claim to know the person “very well!”!   That was my point.  Also, known “very well” but not know he was Guyanese after living next door for four years!!

To be acquainted and to know “very well” are two different things.

Stop challenging people just for the sake of confrontation.  Not everyone lies the way you do.   Kempadoo had reason for concealing his true identity when I knew him.  He was doing some stupid development project which was being funded by Burnham.  He introduced himself as an Englishman and had a long gray beard and ponytail which looked like African hair.  Sort of a Rasta look.  His daughter Oonya is African.  He looked like a black man. I never questioned his identity. I saw him coming and going every day.  He lived a very reclusive life.
