Hon. Sulayman Saho, National Assembly Member for Central Baddibou alongside members of The Gambia Red Cross Society recently held a mass sensitisation on the importance of wearing face masks in his constituency.

The outreach tour also witnessed the presentation of 300 face masks to mosques within the constituency.

The Central Badibou NAM while distributing the facemasks reminded all to observe social distancing and regular hand washing as advised by health experts.

He also thanked Imams in his constituency for their cooperation in adhering to expert recommendations to combat the spread of the global pandemic.

“No one knows when the pandemic will be over and as such, I urge people to learn to live with it”.

Representing The Gambia Red Cross team, Mr. Babucarr Sowe told Imams that Covid-19 is real and not political and therefore everyone must take ownership in controlling its spread.

Imam of Kinteh Kunda-Marong Kunda, Arfang Sutay Marong thanked the team for their initiative and promised to preach to people during his Friday sermons.

Concerns were raised by people living within the constituency regarding the continuous closure of ‘Lumos’ which they said is making life unbearable for them.

He therefore appealed to government to consider re-opening ‘Lumos’ wherein World Health Organisation standards will be observed such as wearing of face masks, hand washing and other measures.

Women of Kerr Pateh made a similar appeal to government, saying their survival is at risk.
