Part 10: Politics and Education

To mistake education for classroom schooling is an error committed by most of us without our realising it. Education is social property while schooling up to higher education standards belongs to institutions.

Everywhere in the world education precedes schooling and extends beyond school. Those that control schooling decide when to start or finish. They peg it at a price and dish our so much for anyone willing to pay in measured terms while education is beyond measure.
Social education on the other is free. You learn your first language by free association with people around. Not needing to call anyone your teacher, knowledge of social reality develops over time.

Schooling does not register or give marks for what we learn from social

Part 9: Politics of Development

Using development projects to gain political capital is common tactic for capturing votes. In the absence of proper consultation to determine real needs of people, politically motivated projects will not put food on the table or bring much needed better living conditions.
Deprived and hard-to-reach communities are not always enjoying much from the government. Quite often they are not consulted in fairest deal of development partnership.
Instead, projects are conceived without them knowing what is going on. Whenever some government and Non-Governmental Organisation NGO agents begin their treks word goes around that another project is about to come.
Fleet of project vehicles and motorbikes are seen running around blowing more dust and leaving behind people hoping for what may never

LET THEM SPIT ON ALKALI KONTEH

Alkali Conteh – The Adviser of President Barrow

By Anonymous!

It does not take a forensic scientist or an experienced detective to identify or discover fingerprints or DNA traits of Alkali Konteh in the article purported to have been authored by Ndey Sarr, Serer – Jongama of Serekunda, with the title “Why they spit on Alkali Konteh”. It is the closest one gets to getting an official reaction from Alkali Konteh against the barrage of allegations being levelled against him in the Gambian social media for his alleged dubious dealings around the Gambia’s President Adama Barrow. His apparent influence over Barrow is so evident that some akin him to the infamous Saul Badjie, the supercilious military General of the previous President Yahya Jammeh.

But “why they spit on Alkali Conteh”, despite the best efforts of

LAMIN SADDAM SANYANG

PEOPLE SAY THAT SLAVES WERE TAKEN FROM AFRICA. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
PEOPLE WERE TAKEN FROM AFRICA AND WERE MADE INTO SLAVES.

I want to inform the general public that, there will be a massive demonstration at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hage on Friday the 15th of december 2017 between 15:00 – 17:00 to condemn black people being sold as slaves in Libya.
Our fellow black brothers and sisters getting sold in Libya and are made in to slaves. Our brothers and sisters are beaten, rapes and kill in Libya.

This brutal, cruel and barbaric behavior in Libya must stop immediately.
How many days, weeks, months does the international communities needs to talk about this inhuman behaviour happening in Libya before taking an actions.

The Arab world are the greatest hypocrites you can ever see on this

HELLO MR PRESIDENT: MORE GREASE ON YOUR ELBOW

Posted in: Opinion, Politics | Comments Off on HELLO MR PRESIDENT: MORE GREASE ON YOUR ELBOW

Author: Tha Scribbler Bah

When last week I saw on Gambia Radio and Television Services that a youth group had been formed and named President Barrow Youth Movement for Development, I was worried and my mind went straight to the Green Youths, Yaaye Compins and other such self serving Kafoos.

Then, I heard that a statement from the Office of the President had instructed the founders of that movement to change the name. That gave me solace. They should know better, and not take us that road again. Gambians are tired of such cheap attempts to get close to our president just to get rich quick at the expense of the general public.

You see, Mr President, if someone genuinely wants you to succeed, he or she should work hard to ensure
