The family of the Gambia’s former Minister of Economic Planning has reacted to our story captioned “Gambian Security Acquire PPP Minister’s Family Land.” The family wanted us to rectify some portion of the story.
“We want to set the record straight that the sale of the said land has nothing to do with Mbemba Jatta, the former Minister of Economic Planning,” a family member in Gunjur in Kombo South told Kibaaro News.
The said family member, who wished to remain anonymous, said the land in question belongs to a family within the same clan with Mbemba Jatta. “It belongs to the immediate family of Dembo Jatta, a former Customs official,” our source said.
The former minister’s family does not dispute the veracity of the story. “The content of the story is intact; everything in it is factual, except the part involving Mbemba Jatta. We would be grateful if you can sort that out,” said a family member.
