The Imam of Kanifing Estate mosque, Baba Leigh, could not hide his  unhappiness for what he saw as an undue prominence given to the State House mosque at the expense of other mosques in the country. Imam Leigh is apparently displeased with the Gambia Radio and Television Services, GRTS, for focussing their cameras and microphones on State House
mosque when other mosques are not given some consideration.

To the Kanifing Estate imam, other mosques in The Gambia can also contribute in the eradication of many societal ills if they are given the opportunity to do so.For him, GRTS could help the imams in their awareness creation by giving them the prominence that they give to State House mosque.

According to him, the country is replete with many ills that need to be tackled head-on and that this could not be done by the imams if they are not given the opportunity.” I believe we can do a lot in improving our society. But it’s interesting to note that an undue consideration is given to the State House mosque,” Imam Leigh told a conference.

In another development, reports are reaching this paper that the people that GRTS selected to attend and cover the World U-20 Youth Football Championship, were all denied visa by the Canadian embassy in Dakar. The  same reports indicated that State House has decided to take some passports of people that it intends to send to Canada to Ghana instead of Dakar for reasons best known to No. 1 Marina Parade.
