Solo Sandeng remembered

By Amadou Jadama

Hundreds of people, mainly supporters of the United Democratic Party, staged a march from Tipper garage to Westfield to mark the 3rd anniversary of the death of activist Solo Sandeng in the hands of the NIA.
Addressing the parade, party leader Ousainu Darboe said the death of Sandeng liberated the Gambia.

“It was a march that was akin to that of the Martin Luther King, or Palm Sunday when Jesus Christ went on the great march to free the world,” Darboe told the emotional crowd.
Mr Darboe paid tribute to Mr Sandeng and others whose defiance triggered the revolution that led to the removal of Yahya Jammeh.
β€œIt is a cumulative contribution of the entire people that liberated this country and we are so grateful to them,” he said.
