The news of the removal this afternoon of the acting KMC mayor  from office has sent a shockwave through many in the Kanifing municipality.Mr Francis Gomez, who was the mayor of KMC in an acting capacity, was this afternoon given his walking papers.

Jilanka Fires Gomez!

According to a press release from the office of the president, Mr Gomez has been relieved of his duties with effect from today, April 16. The president was acting under powers conferred on him by the 1997 Constitution of The Gambia.

Under the same powers given to him by the same constitution, President Jammeh has appointed Mr Alieu Momar Njie as Mr Gomez’s replacement. Mr Njie was  a former scout commissioner and an IEC returning officer in the last presidential elections.

At the time of going to press, the reasons for the removal of  Mr Gomez could not be established but its believed to have something to do with the internal wrangling in the council since he was elevated to act as the mayor of KMC following the sacking and subsequent arrest of his predecessor, Abdoulie Conteh.
