The Alkalo of Gunjur in Kombo South, Alhagi Sabaki Touray, has expressed his intention to keep up the peace in his village despite the numerous problems that exist among the villagers.

Speaking to a large crowd at a recent village meeting in the area, Alkalo Touray said Gunjur is so interconnected that you hardly pass a compound without meeting your close relation.

"This is because of the intermarriages between the different clans in the village. Trouble has no space in Gunjur. We should all work together for the development of the village," he advised.

Alkalo Touray went further to state that without peace, all the development that they are talking about will be meaningless, and he thus called on the villagers to unite for the attainment of their development aspirations.

"I will do all I can to ensure that we enjoy the peace that we have and continue to enjoy in the area," he fervently re-assured.
