Lamin Manga, the former Director General of The Gambia Radio Services (GRTS) has been reinstated to his position. He replaces Momodou Sabally, who was sacked on Tuesday. Mr. Sabally is currently under state custody.

Mr. Manga is the Consul General for the Russian Federation in The Gambia. He left the GRTS sometime ago, for unexplained reasons. Manga has bounces back. He was seen at the DG office on Wednesday.

GRTS is an important aspect of dictator Jammeh’s propaganda machine. This is the medium that Jammeh uses to spew lies and propaganda. He also discriminates at the opposition when it comes to equal access to the state TV and radio.

Mr. Momodu Sabally is yet to be charged. He has been held at the elections since on Tuesday.
