Dear Mr. Mbai,
“COALITION OFFICIALS SECRETLY LOANED THEMSELVES MONIES WHEN THEY TOOK OVER FROM JAMMEH”
My attention was drawn to the above article in ‘Freedom Newspaper’ of today the 17th September 2018.
Perception is very important in politics. I was appointed on the 1st February 2017 as Minister of Interior, and relieved from this position on the 10th November 2017.
During this period, I did not take or receive any loan from The Gambia Government or at any other material time.
This clarification is necessary to ward off any possible perception or inference that I may be among former Ministers who allegedly took secret government loans under the new government, and to make it crystal clear that I am not among those former Ministers allegedly inferred in the said report. Kindly accord this rejoinder the same prominence you accorded to the principal story, as major headline.
Mai Ahmad Fatty
Former Minister of Interior
