Pa Nderry Mbai of Freedomnewspaper? Where did you get your facts from mate?

A report published on Freedom website yesterday, stated: “The Standard Newspaper Editorial team have

Recently, the Upper River Region administrative area has been inundated with graphic rape cases of under aged girls as young as 10. Basse which was known for its hospitality, amazing landscape and cosy night clubs has meandered into a sinister dwelling for the Basse girl child. The outrageous rape on Sunday of a grade five pupil in the Upper River Region (URR) calls for concerted efforts to curb this increasing menace in it bud once and for all by all and sundry in the

WHAT HAPPENED O FREEDOM AND JUSTICE?

WHAT HAPPENED O FREEDOM AND JUSTICE?

In traditional Africa, children are taught at an early age not to point at their father’s village with a left hand, despite all its underdevelopment and worrisome social cohesion. Perhaps that is what Minister Mahoney sets out to do as he stood at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva defending Gambia’s indefensible human rights records under President Jammeh’s watch. It is not only off-putting but also inexcusable for Minister Mahoney to unashamedly endeavour to white-wash Gambia’s human rights records which are

“I don’t pay attention to politics…” some Gambians would excuse their irresponsibility but it”…is one of the most ignorant statements a person can make. If you allow people in your government to commit crimes in your name without questioning their actions you are just as guilty as they are,” a maxim cautions. Moreover, if you don’t take interest in politics, politics always takes interest in you. Politicians use you as their beast of burden just as President Jammeh is doing to Gambians now. For instance, when he enters into and signs loans agreement in the name of the Gambia, Gambian taxpayers pay

*Sarjo Bayang seeks to raise the bar higher

Where systematic dispensation is lacking there human capital capability, efficiency and effectiveness can be seriously undermined. Optimal utilisation of policy instruments and good governance are key requirements for sustainable organisational development and institution building. Efficiency and effectiveness cannot be properly determined without having systems and performance measuring instruments in place to ensure maintenance of orderly dispensation. 

Dismantling the structures and abolishing systematic dispensation is the most visible evidence of failure when assessing proper governance for organisations, institutions, and businesses. This relates to the situation of governance in Gambia. The same instruments become useful

  A      POEM     FOR      CHRISTIANA      JATTA

OUSAINOU MBENGA

OUSAINOU MBENGA

                                                      By: Ousainou Mbenga

             A SPARK FOR THE REVOLUTION

With a spark of youthful arrogance, audacity, courage

Atop a defying confidence; you jolted GRTS into disbelieve

Mouths dropped, eyes popped and hearts raced

In awe to your fed – up bravery with calculated temerity

 

For once, GRTS ceased to be the idiot’s box of vanity

Reason begins to challenge willful ignorance

 

You rekindled the forgotten cry of past generations, that

Students are the spark of the revolution!

Your courage was contagious

Not a contagion to spread disease

Rather to spread revolutionary resistance.

 

From the opposite pole of stupidity

The dishonorable guest of tyranny

Blared his trumpet of chauvinism

“I don’t debate with women”

”You have a sickness”
