Letters: Condolences on the Bronx fire


With shock and sadness, the Citizens’ Alliance (CA) receives news of the fire incident that occurred in The Bronx, New York, USA, on 9 January 2022 and claimed many lives, including Gambians while leaving many with excruciating injuries.

This is an irreparable loss to Gambians both at home and in the Diaspora, particularly to the bereaved families.


On behalf of the party’s National Executive and the entire membership, we wish to express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and the entire Gambian populace for this tragic loss.

We pray that God, The Almighty, have mercy on the departed and rest their souls in Jannah. We also pray that God grants their family members the faith and strength to bear the loss and to breeze through these trying times. To those in the hospitals battling for their lives, we pray for healing mercies for them.
