In his condolence message to the family, President Barrow, on behalf of the Government and people of The Gambia, said Grand Marabout Alhajie Yusupha Darboe’s demise will leave a void not only in the Darboe family, but their community and the country as a whole.
President Barrow described the Grand Marabout as a father figure, grandfather, confidant, and a rock for many Gambians and non- Gambians both in the country and abroad.
The President prays that the angels of mercy receive his gentle soul in Jannahtul Firdawsi and Allah grants the family solace during these trying times.
