leader of Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC), Mamma Kandeh, has promised to clean
the sewages in some parts of Banjul so the water can flow without floods.
He made the promise on Sunday while on a visit to some areas of Banjul accompanied by a high-powered delegation of GDC officials.
They were welcomed by TAWAL Banjul, a social movement for the development of Banjul.
Kandeh said he has also provided Banjul with 100 bags of cement.
He said the purpose of visiting the areas was to see the conditions of the places to be able to contribute his quota to the cleaning of the sewage systems so that “the people living in those areas would have an environment conducive to dwell”.
“Banjul has been a concern to me even during my presidential campaign,” he said. “I have been very concerned about the way Banjul is and if my memory can serve me well, one of my meetings in Banjul I made it very clear that I cannot remember when we have a head of state from outside this country visiting The Gambia and was taken to a round tour of Banjul; this cannot happen because of the poor condition of the capital.”
Mr Kandeh pointed out that the sewage systems in Banjul are a concern and are “one of the biggest problems that Banjulians are facing”.
In view of that, he said, the GDC is planning a set-settal programme that would bring as many people as possible inside the city of Banjul to help Banjulians to clean the city.
“The cleansing service is not only going to be one side of Banjul; it is going to be throughout the whole of Banjul. We are coming with a big number of people and we will cover many areas,” he said.
