State House, Banjul, 9 January 2017 – His Excellency, Adama Barrow and the government wish to express regret over the unfortunate incident at Mankamang Kunda, yesterday, January 8, 2018 in which some people were injured. President Barrow calls on all Gambians to maintain the peace and stability The Gambia is known for.
In the New Gambia, incidents of this nature in any part of the country, whether the birthplace of the President or any other place, is regrettable, as we are One People, One Nation.
In this spirit of One Gambia, people are encouraged and expected to go about their economic, social and political activities in a responsible and civil manner, as a sure way to jointly build a better and brighter Gambia for all.
As a responsible government, the natural cause of action to take, as is expected, is to investigate into the incident so as to get to the bottom of it.
The President has therefore instructed that the situation is urgently and diligently looked into by the competent institutions so as to avoid repetition of such unfortunate acts.
