The founder of the Gunjur Marlborough link, Dr Nick Maurice, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. It is in recognition of his efforts in promoting development and partnerships between communities in the north and south of The Gambia over 40 years.
The nomination was made by the Majority Leader of The Gambia National Assembly, Kebba Barrow “in recognition of [Dr Maurice’s] services to the people of Gunjur and the Republic of The Gambia as a result of the community link between the community of Gunjur in The Gambia and Marlborough”.
A spokesman for The Gambia’s president said: “His link with Gunjur has created multicultural bonding between people from different races, religions and social groupings.
“Dr Maurice has been humble and dedicated to building human relations in a democratic space where freedom of expression, self-confidence and respect are the values that bound them together”.
