Saturday 23rd August 2008, marked another history in Western Region as the Western Region Sports Committee embarks on a massive weeding exercise at President Jammeh's rice field in Sifoe Kombo South Western Region.
The weeding exercise was attended by over 400 youths from across Western Region.
Speaking to Pointsports, the chairman of
Western Region Sports Committee, ASP Lamin King Colley, said, " sports is not only about kicking a ball but also about being involved in farming as President Jammeh is a fan of Gambian sports, particularly football." He said that the Western Region Sports Committee would continue to do more and more weeding exercises in the future, stating, " as brothers and sisters of Western Region we would love to give a helping hand whenever his need arises." He further thanked the manger of President Jammeh's farm in Sifoe, Mr. Karapha Sanneh, for giving them the necessary needs and support during the exercise. Mr. Colley then urged other sporting associations to emulate the Western Region Sports Committee.
