Bakary Dampha (Paco) wins KM regional congress president unopposed, as Baboucarr Camara GFF Human resource manager and national team coach Sang Ndong committed blunders.
The much awaited congress of KM regional election went ahead according to its constitution on Saturday evening. The Lamin Kaba Bajo led camp produced a late drama by using three clubs and one zone to halt the schedule congress, GFF human resource manager Baboucarr Camara, Gambia national football head coach Sang Ndong and two unauthorized members of two clubs signed and issued a letter of petition to the federation which was later forwarded to the KM region. On it’s quarter, 14 clubs representatives plus three zones gave thumps up for the Congress which saw Paco retain his presidency and mandate for KM region to stand against unlawful football means in the expo executive.
The KM sports standing committee was chaired by Mr Modou Lamin Badjie at the Elective congress. Out of 17 clubs 14 signed a petition for the congress to go ahead even though KM received a warning letter from the GFF for the congress to be paused until further noticed.
After the elective congress incumbent Paco Dampha spoke to the press. He said “I will like to thank the delegates who has the confident to vote me into office for another 4 years and i promise i will do my best for the region” He also thank Manjai sports committee for providing them an office in Manjai and has promise the committee will try to find sponsors for the regional football league. When ask about the Gambia football faderation warning letter they received earlier to cancel the Congress, Paco Dampha said the delegate sign a petition and their mandate was over so the stakeholders have the right to called for congress as majority carry the vote and the GFF cannot stop the elective congress when the clubs called for it he concluded.
With other regions and most recently the coaches association concluding their congress. It will be interesting to see how Kaba’s camp reacted to the KM congress, the congress was well attended as both stakeholders & journalist attended it. Lamin Kaba Bajo will be out of his mind if he tries to remind us of his former boss Babili Mansa by revoking our vibrant and lively concluded congress.
Baboucarr Camara who pleased his employees have committed the most mistake by allowing to be used by Lamin kaba’s administration infiltrators. If president Adama Barrow have to borrow a leaf from Tanzanian president Magufuli to screen most of these GFF staffs am convinced Baboucarr Camara & Kaba Bajo wouldn’t survive it. Simply because you wonder what credentials and certificates did they tender before occupying those position. No decent human resource manager will forge a petition more so attach a blueprint of his own signature. He should have advised the federation more critically than been used. Baboucarr have lost his credibility and that will affect his carrier. Sang Ndong is believed to have four votes within the KM region, with his Serekunda west vote been known, but he have upper hands in clubs in the second & division. He is useful to the kaba administration and that is why he is at the helm of our national team.
LRR and URR are the two regions yet to do their regional congress.
