Senior Presidential political adviser Dembo By Force Bojang hasn’t resigned from his post, contrary to widespread rumors that the politician had parted company with President Barrow, Freedom Newspaper can report. The alleged rumor was being trafficked by a Banjul woman, who claimed to be a supporter of Mayoress Rohey Malick Lowe. She made a whatsapp audio recording congratulating Bojang for resigning from the government. It later turns out that the rumor was a hoax. She was lying. 

According to sources reaching this medium, Dembo By Force, was President Barrow’s emissary (representative) at the burial of Mama Kandeh’s mum. Kandeh is the leader of The Gambia Democratic Congress Party (GDC).  His mum passed away few days ago. She was buried on Sunday.

Present at the burial, was the UDP Leader Ousainou Darboe, Mayoress Rohey Lowe, Dembo By Force, among others.

“Dembo By Force was delegated by President Barrow to represent him at the burial of Mama Kandeh’s mum. The rumor is false. He is in good terms with the President. He hasn’t resigned,” said our source.

The Freedom Newspaper contacted Dembo By Force on Sunday for comment, but before we could confront him on the purported rumor, he told us that he was at the burial of Mama Kandeh’s mum. Bojang also told our Editor to call him back in an hour time, which he did.  Bojang was indisposed for comment when we called him at the appointed time.
