The Mayoress of Banjul Rohey Malick Lowe, has spoken for the time on allegations that she was onetime jailed in Germany on drug related matters, FREEDOM NEWSPAPER CAN REVEAL. The Banjul Mayoress did not deny or confirm the allegations. She merely said she will not dignify such allegations. “I saw the newspaper that is circulating. If the person, who wrote the story understands German, he will know that I haven’t done anything wrong. I was violated. I am not going to dignify what they are saying,” she told The Gambian talent host Pa Ousman Joof, during an interview.

It would be recalled that the Freedom Newspaper recently reported that: “The Mayoress of Banjul Rohey Malick Lowe, who recently met Ivanka Trump, was jailed in Germany back in 80’s on drug related issues. While serving time in Germany, she had accused a German prison warden of having an affair with her. The matter was investigated, and the accused officer was charged.

“It is a case of being at a wrong place, at the wrong time. That doesn’t mean that the person named is guilty as being accused. I am not going to dignify what they are saying,” Ms. Lowe remarked.

Paul Mendy, a Gambian residing in Germany, for the past 28 years, told Freedom Radio Gambia’s Leral show that he was aware of Ms. Lowe imprisonment in Germany. He says Ms. Lowe and her Gambian partner were both imprisoned in Germany on drug related offenses.

According to Mr. Mendy, Ms. Lowe was married to one Rainer, a German drug addict. He says she secured her papers through Rainer, before relocating to Sweden.

“Her case was in the news. She accused the Prison Chief of rape while serving time in prison on drug related matters. But the prison chief had denied the allegations. The Prison Chief said he was impotent. He had to resign from his job, following Rohey Malick Lowe’s rape allegations against him,” Mendy remarked.

Ms. Lowe has downplayed the Freedom Newspaper publication. She claimed that she is being targeted for media scrutiny because of her role as a Mayoress.

“They once said that Rohey Malick Lowe will not be able to come to America. Here I am in America,” she remarked.

Ms. Lowe never visited the US while she was a private Gambian citizen. She was able to visit the US because of her new portfolio as Mayoress for Banjul.
