It looks like Mamalinguere Sarr has secured a top job at the Social Security, Housing and Finance Cooperation, Freedom Newspaper has been reliably informed. Ms. Sarr, who lives in Sweden, has been appointed Admin Director at the SSHFC, per sources reaching us at this hour.
Mama has joined MD Muhammed Manjang’s management team at the SSHFC. This followed a job announcement at the SSHFC, in which she applied and was hired.
SSHFC insiders claimed that Mama Sarr was an ardent supporter of Manjang during their showdown with the embattled MD. Her past Facebook writings suggested that she was opposed to the staff’s protest to have Manjang removed from his post, insiders claimed.
Manjang has been accused of abuse of office, per diem allowance abuse, and nepotism by the former striking staffers of the SSHFC. A charge he vehemently denied.
At some point, both Manjang and the SSHFC staff Rep. Momodou Camara, were suspended pending the outcome of an inquiry approved by President Barrow into the SSHFC staffers debacle with their MD. Manjang was reinstated, while Camara was fired.
A source who reached us remarked: “ Guess what? Manjang is rewarding the people who were fighting for his cause. Mamalinguere Sarr has been appointed the new Director of Admin at the SSHFC. She fought for him.”
Contacted for comment, Mamalinguere Sarr, said she was yet to receive an official communication from the SSHFC about her appointment. She confirms that she did applied for a job at the SSHFC.
“It was advertised, I applied, was interviewed but I cannot confirm an appointment at this time,” she told Freedom Newspaper.
When asked whether she has supported Manjang during the staffs’ showdown with him, Ms. Sarr retorted: ” Seriously Pa, I don’t even know him personally.”
This reporter further puts it to Mama that he was merely conveying what the staffers of the SSHFC were saying about her. In response she said: “You know different because my page is open but it’s up to you what you write. I have nothing but respect for you since our time as comrades in the struggle and that wont change. Have a good day.”
It remains to be seen how Mama Sarr, would get along with the SSHFC Staffers–given her past social media commentaries allegedly defending Manjang during the staffers strike action. Some insiders are of the view that she was hired because of her past support for Manjang.
The insiders had even questioned her independence and impartiality as a “citizen journalist”cum talk show host.” They strongly believe that she was auditioning for a job at the SSHFC, when she allegedly came to Manjang’s defense.
