Numerous efforts made by Gambia’s food and hygieneÂ health officials to prosecute a leading Syrian shopping centre in the Gambia for selling expired food stuffs, has been frustrated by the newly appointed Army Brigadier General Lang Tombong Tamba, as reports reaching this paper linked the Army Chief to kickback collection and corruption related scandal. General Tamba is reported toÂ have beenÂ on the payroll of the Kairaba shopping Centre, who according to well placed sources at the state houseÂ had bribed Tamba to save them from facing the full scale of the law. A trusted and dependable source at the office of the President in Banjul said Brigadier General Tamba’s close ties with the Syrian shopping centre Management was not a secret toÂ the daily shoppers and staff of the Presidency. Investigations conductedÂ by this paper reveals that a large quantity of expired food stuffs, which were intercepted by Health Ministry officials in January of 2007, from the Kairaba Shopping Centre, could not proceed to court due to the political backing accorded to the accused persons by Tamba.Â The case has suffered a natural dead. There is no immediate word available as to what is responsible for the non prosecution ofÂ these Syrian nationals, who confessed to health officials for having sold expired foods to Gambians. Neither the police, nor Health officials at this hour dared to pursue the case, as the Syrians had been reportedly braggingÂ that they have the backing of Lang Tombong Tamba. Tamba has been accused of receiving bribes from the Syrians amounting to millions of dalasis.Â
