The newly formed Village Development Committee (VDC) of Gunjur has given out its first public report on its activities for the past six months.

Speaking at a village meeting held in the village over the weekend, Mr. Eliman Touray, Assistant Secretary General of the committee, said the committee, six months after taking over, has spent a total amount of D21, 526 in filling potholes within the streets of Gunjur. The money, he added, was collected from individuals.

For his part, Mr. Abdou K. Touray, chairman of the VDC, said his committee has proven beyond reasonable doubt that they are capable and deserved the opportunity to serve in their village development committee.

He said despite all the oppositions, the committee has and will continue to deliver beyond expectation. Mr. Touray called the youths to participate in development programmes for the progress of the village. He also called on Islamic scholars to always talk to the public about issues that will not take the development of the village forward.
