Press release

It has come to the attention of the Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) that the Brusubi cemetery is being encroached upon by certain individual (s) who are pulling down the perimeter fence and selling parts of the land to buyers.

SSHFC is calling on persons involved in demarcating, selling and buying portions of this graveyard to cease and desist since the land in question was legally acquired and leased to the Corporation by the Gambia Government.  As a matter of fact, the lease includes the entire space of the Brusubi Cemetery (Muslim and Christian).

By the same token, members of the public are hereby warned against carrying out any land transactions within the Brusubi cemetery and the entire Brusubi Layout. SSHFC implores members of the community and their authorities to exercise restraint as the Corporation moves to resolve the issue amicably.
