Demba Ali Jawo: The Police Again!

Demba Ali Jawo
Former Communication Minister

Most Gambians had assumed that with the bad image that the police had acquired during the Jammeh regime and all the noise about Security Sector Reform, the police hierarchy would never again allow themselves to be used by those in authority for political expediency. However, what we had seen at KMC this morning was a big disappointment to anyone who believed in the new national mantra; Never Again. It is indeed disappointing that IGP Abdoulie Sanyang would even contemplate let alone get the police involved in a matter that has absolutely nothing to do with them. Now that the Local Govt minister has denied ever asking the police to be deployed at the KMC premises, the onus is now on IGP Sanyang to exonerate himself from blame for the incident.
