APRC Expels Nyimasata Sanneh, Majanko Samusa

This paper has been reliably informed that Nyimasata Sanneh-Bojang and Majanko Samusa, APRC Deputy Administrative Secretary and Youth Mobiliser respectively, were last week dismissed from the party. Up to the time of going to press, no official reason was advanced to this paper as to the reason(s) for the development but the dismissal of the two comes in the wake of the rescinding last Thursday of the nomination of Oley Sey, nominated member of the National Assembly.

Mrs. Nyimasata Sanneh-Bojang and Mr. Majanko Samusa were both nominated members in the previous National Assembly.

Nyimasata Sanneh-Bojang had served as a minister of Health in the FirstRepublic and is the first female parliamentarian in The Gambia.

Mr. Samusa was a member of National Convention Party (NCP), which combined forces with APRC shortly after the 2001 presidential elections.

However Majanko and Nyimassatta has walked into our office today claiming that they were only removed from their positions as APRC youth leader and APRC adminstrative Secretary No.2 respectively and not expel from the APRC Party.
