Bondali NAM: Let’s investigate the gov’t over Dec. 30th attack

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Kaddy Camara, the National Assembly Member (NAM) for Foni Bondali Constituency of the West Coast Region (WCR) has said there is need for the government to be investigated over the Dec. 30, State House which occurred in Banjul, in 2014.

“We said we don’t want Yahya Jammeh. We said Yahya Jammeh is not good; and we also accused him of killing and that he is also a thief. But we have seen thefts and killers here in this country,” she said. “What is confusing me is the fact that those that planned December 30th attack are the people coming from Europe and our government is welcoming them.”

The Foni Bondali NAM stated that people who planed a coup to kill Yahya Jammeh and did not succeed and ran away are the same people who came back and this government is lifting them high. “Let’s investigate to see whether the government was not part of the coup. Whoever died during this coup, he was killed but it is not Yahya Jammeh who killed the individual,” she remarked.

She made this remarks while addressing thousands of supporters of the former ruling Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC) during a meeting at Bwiam village in the Foni Jarrol District of the WCR, as they continued their tour across the country.

Commission of Inquiry

On the commission of inquiry that deals with the financial activities of former President Yahya Jammeh, his close associate and family’s members, the Foni Bondali NAM stated that if it’s true that Yahya Jammeh took this country on 22nd July 1994, the Commission of Inquiry should have started from 1995 or 1996.

She explained that the reason why they did not start the commission from 1995 to 1996 is the fact that lots of people around will appear in the commission. “We see their Commission of Inquiry as watch-hunt,” she said, adding that Yahya Jammeh had never signed a single document that came to the commission.If there was democracy, she went on, what happen in Mankamang Kunda the home village of “The ARPC were passing-by and they got stoned,” she said. “I want to tell Barrow that the people of Mankamang Kunda do not like you, because you contest under independent ticket, thus all Gambians should be equal to you,” she stated.

She said it is the same Mankamang Kunda people who said the opposition Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) will not hold a gathering in the village. “If they did not want to see any political party then let them move out of the country.”
