council did not owe them the sum D2, 700, 000 as thir three years annual
commissions covering the periods 2015 to 2017.

They described Colley’s statement as totally irresponsive and should not have come from him.
The alkalolu said if not for anything they should be respected for the positions of trust they hold.
“It is high time people stop uttering statements that are irresponsible”, the release said, adding that people know what is true and what is not.
Meanwhile, the alkalolu thanked the interim committee of KMC under the stewardship of Bakary Jammeh for identifying their plight and addressing it by paying them D1, 000, 000 and promising to clear the balance before the end of their term.
According to them, the CEO and entire Finance Department of the council are not foolish enough to pay people monies they are not entitled to.
In conclusion the alkalolu wished the interim committee best of luck in their endeavours to bringing justice to the corridors of the council.
