Muslim High School Principal Fired

As Police Investigates “Missing Millions” at the School

……..UDP/NRP Go To Court To Contest Election Results!

By Our National Correspondent Landing Badjie

About one million dalasis is reported to have gone missing at Muslim Senior Secondary School in Banjul.
According to latest reports, an investigation has already been set up to probe the circumstances surrounding the missing million dalasis. The Principal of the school, Mr. Sulayman Bun Njie, has been removed from his post as investigators proceed with their task.
Mid last month, the pupils of Muslim Senior Secondary School went on strike to demand payment of their teachers salaries and other benefits. The strike came when their teachers boycotted classes in agitation for payment of salaries and fringe benefits.
It would be recalled that this is the second time in a decade that a principal of Muslim High is removed unceremoniously. In 1995, Mr Baboucarr Njie was given his marching orders when the students of the school took to the streets to protest the school’s decision to prevent them from celebrating their inter-house party on the beach. Several sustained injuries in this mid-90 student unrest whilst shops were plundered. Soldiers and police, led by the present deputy chief of defence staff, Col. Peter Singhateh, were active on the ground to quell the violence.

Detention Without Trial Soaring

One of the things preoccupying the minds of the Gambian people, the right activists and democratic-minded people is the incessant detention of people in the impoverished, tiny West African country without trial.
The number of people currently in detention in the country’s prisons appears to be an indication that detention without trial has come to stay. The detainees, who comprise of security personnel, politicians, a school headmaster, journalist and civilians, are currently being detained at the State Central prison in Banjul and Janjanbureh prison in the Central River Division of The Gambia.
The High Court in Banjul, has in December of last year, ordered the release of some of them such as Tamba Fofana, Headmaster of Kudang Lower Basic School but this court order was not executed, putting the government of The Gambia under a swelter of criticism for its apparent lack of respect for the independence of the judiciary.

Meanwhile, those under detention at the State Central prison in Banjul include the former chief of protocol, Baboucarr Jobarteh, Sgt. Buba Mendy,Sgt. Buba Jammeh, ex-CDS Vincent Jatta, Baba A. Saho, Musa Dibba, Ngorr Secka, Phoday Barry, Abdoulie Kujabi all formerly of NIA, Lamin Sanneh, ex-DPS at Works and Construction department, Karamo Jaiteh of the same department, Suruwa Jaiteh, ex-DPS at Agric. Department, Omar Ndow of Gamtel, Jasaba Kujabi, Haruna Jammeh, Marcie Jammeh, all from Foni and Ousman Rambo Jatta of Bakau.

Supt. Abdoulie Colley, ex- SO Sibanor Police Station ,journalist Chief Ebrima B. Manneh and Tamba Fofana are currently under detention at Janjanbureh prisons in CRR.
In another development, the electorate of Upper Saloum, Upper Fulladu West and Lower Baddibu could return to the polls following suits filed by the opposition, objecting to the results of the January 25 legislative elections.
