Badara Manneh, a Gambian living in Sweden, is the owner of the APRC political bureau in Manjiekunda, Gibril Fadia, an APRC supporter told Freedom Radio. According to Mr. Fadia, the political bureau was allocated to the APRC party by Mr. Manneh. “Badara Manneh owns that property. He allocated it to us for free of charge. We do not pay rent. We only maintain the up keeping of the bureau,” Fadia said.
Fadia’s statement followed speculations that President Barrow has allocated a political bureau to the APRC. The APRC leadership has denied such claims.
Fadia says he doesn’t know Badara Manneh. He also doesn’t know in which city Manneh lives in Sweden.
A Freedom radio listener said she knows Mr. Manneh. “He lives in Stockholm. He is an APRC supporter,” she said.
Mr. Manneh could not be reached for comment.
