Sabotage in form is illegal and should not be allowed to go unpunished in the new Gambia. Both the Supreme Court and the High Court in Banjul were yesterday rendered partially dysfunctional. This was largely due to intermittent electric outages.

The courts cannot operate effectively in the absence of electricity. Work was hindered at the courts yesterday.

The National Water and Electricity Company (NAWEC) should endeavor to avoid actions that might be construed as a sabotage against the system. Please act right.

In another development, The Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA) is also facing similar challenges. The GRA computer networks had been down for the past ten days. The tax agency has now resorted to processing their business records manually.

Gamtel has a lot of questions to answer. How comes that the GRA is experiencing network issues at this time? What is being done to fix the network issues at the GRA? Is Information Minister Ebrima Sillah aware of what is going on?

GRA is the economic nerve of the nation. One must be out of his or her damn mind by wagging a sabotage against such an important government agency.

If the alleged saboteurs are doing this for the sake of political expediency, let it be known. This is the danger of having workers pledging their allegiance to a given political party and not the country that they are hired to serve.  What a disservice?
