Star GSM Company last Saturday awarded some print and electronic media journalists, artists, and other organisations for their contribution to national development.

The ceremony which was held at the Youth Monument, Westfield was attended by officials of Star GSM Company, journalists as well as women groups.

Lamin Kaba, Chief Executive Officer of Star GSM said his company has been contributing its quota to national development since its inception.

He said they organized the event to foster good relationship among Gambians, irrespective of their political affiliation, religion, or ethnicity. 

“This is my company’s third time of awarding deserving Gambians for their dedication to nation building,” he said. Mr Kaba appealed to Gambians and non Gambians in the country to appreciate the good work that Gambian journalists do, adding that, no country would move forward without the support of its media.

He also called on Gambians to maintain the peace and stability the country is known for as we approach the presidential elections.

Aji Awa Sallah-Njie, former Deputy Mayor of Banjul City Council (BCC) described CEO Kaba as a businessman who has the interest of The Gambia at heart. She also called on Gambians to safeguard the country’s peace, saying it is only through peace that development can take place in a country.
