ABDOULIE JOBE EDITED 2He left Camden under a cold weather—thinking that he might find a similar weather in Senegal. This is evident on Jobe’s dress code. But to his chagrin, Jobe started breathing hot air as soon as he landed. He must be enjoying the warm sunshine, and traditional Senegambian heritage.

In a brief chat with this Editor, Mr. Jobe, said he is happy to be back home. His roots originated from Senegal, even though is a Gambian born native.

According to Mr. Jobe, he visited Africa, thirty two years ago. He last visited Senegal, thirty eight years ago, he added.
