CEASE & DESIST! UDP’S NATTA MASS TO “UDP COMMANDO” SABALLY!
Reply to Natta Mass
Dear Natta Mass,
There is an exclamation mark in the title above because your “Commando” wrote yesterday that he will not apologise to Essa Faal “in a billion years”! So it seems to me that your excellent and mature advice to your “Commando” is in vain.
You make some absolutely true and wise points Natta:-
ON MOMODOU SABALLY’S RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY
Yesterday, your “Commando” quoted the Holy Koran as followers and it is still on his Facebook page:-
“O you who believe! Do not take for guardians … from among those who were given the Book before you … be careful of (your duty to) Allah if you are believers. – Surah Ma’ida, 57”.
By that your “Commando” refers not only to Essa Faal, but also to Gambians Christians who are “…those who were given the book before you”.
You are very correct to say this Natta on theoutrageous religious bigotry of your “Commando”:
“… neither H.E. ANM Darboe nor any of his comrades EVER denigrated nor attacked ANY rival at the personal level … least of all religious views … none of them would advocate for the disqualification of any citizen based on their religious views … I do believe that your views and conduct reflect on the party I love and in this case it did so negatively”.
ON SABALLY’S “PROXITY” TO LAWYER DARBOE
Momodou Sabally is making this campaign based on religious bigotry again Essa Faal on behalf of the UDP and Lawyer Mandela Darboe’s Presidential campaign.
You say this Natta:
“H.E ANM Darboe publicly recognizing your support of the UDP and publicly stating so … By virtue of his public endorsement of your support and your proximity to him, your views no longer remain your views alone, right or wrong they get associated with and reflect on the party and his person”.
That is absolutely true Natta. The old saying is that “you are known by the company you keep” and it seems nowadays that no one in the UDP is closer to Lawyer Mandela Darboe than “UDP Commando” Momodou Sabally.
SABALLY’S APPALLING RECORD (just listing ten):
- Today Lawyer Yankuba Darboe says that he has “brokered peace” between Momodou Sabally and Pa Modou Bojang (of UDP’s Brikama Radio);
- Some months ago Momodou Sabally attacked Lead Counsel Essa Faal while the TRRC was in progress;
- This week Momodou Sabally has attacked Presidential Candidate Essa Faal on the appalling religious grounds described above;
- Momodou Sabally has attacked President Barrow based on his (Sabally’s) own personal issues, and called Barrow “my biggest personal enemy”);
- The Janneh Commission has found Momodou Sabally culpable during his time in office as Yahya Jammeh’s Presidential Affairs Minister – and barred him from public office for life;
- Momodou Sabally attacked the Mandinka tribe – to please Yahya Jammeh;
- Momodou Sabally attacked the UDP on television during Jammeh’s rule. He said UDP is a tribalist Mandinka Party. He said UDP is not a patriotic party (and it was then that ICC Lawyer Essa Faal raised issues about this tribalistic issues at the UN);
- Momodu Sabally accused the UDP and UDP’s Amadou Sanneh of making fake documents for asylum seekers – and Amadou Sanneh was jailed for this;
- While Jammeh’s victims and asylees were protesting Yahya Jammeh in the USA, Momodou Sabally attacked them physically and on camera.
- While Momodou Sabally was on an official trip in Italy, he was accused of behaviour unbecoming of a pious Muslim.
So, I end with your wise words again Natta:-
“H.E ANM Darboe … By virtue of his public endorsement of your support and your proximity to him … they get associated with and reflect on the party and his person”.
For me Natta, all the above ten listed “sins” of your “UDP Commando” “get associated with and reflect on the party and his person”:-
Sadly, “get associated with and reflect on” Lawyer Mandela Darboe and the UDP.
If I had the vote, Momodou Sabally’s role as “UDP Commando” would be the sole reason why I would not vote for UDP and Lawyer Mandela Darboe.
BELOW IS NATTA’S EXCELLENT LETTER FROM HIS FACEBOOK PAGE.
Stay Blessed Natta,

Dear Sabally Momodou,
Please know that your utterances reflect on the UDP by virtue of your association with, and recognition from the party leader and general membership. The leadership of the UDP dedicated at least a quarter century of their lives to politics, advocating for democracy and the rule of law which is grounded in equal treatment of all citizens.
In that time, neither H.E. ANM Darboe nor any of his comrades EVER denigrated nor attacked ANY rival at the personal level. Neither has he or any of his comrades uttered a statement that makes fellow citizens feel excluded because they differ in some aspect or the other, least of all religious views or school of thought.
As democrats and staunch advocates for democracy, none of them would advocate for the disqualification of any citizen based on their religious views, subscriptions, or schools of thought. That is a personal affair and not a measure of one’s capacity to uphold the rule of law or lack thereof.
As a person who loves UDP and openly advocates for UDP, I feel the need to address you directly. I do not claim any higher moral station than you, nor do I seek to judge you. I am not seeking to debate this issue either, but I do believe that your views and conduct reflects on the party I love and in this case it did so negatively. So as a reminder, know that your words and actions affect your associates and the image of our party.
H.E ANM Darboe publicly recognizing your support of the UDP and publicly stating so should be an honor that is best reciprocated by aligning yourself with his views, and I am absolutely certain that he does not care about what any of his rivals’ religious inclinations are.By virtue of his public endorsement of your support and your proximity to him, your views no longer remain your views alone, right or wrong they get associated with and reflect on the party and his person.
Please consider that privileged position and exercise restraint in your dealings with political rivals.
Our problem is Barrow and he is our only focus. Wrest control from him and salvage the nation. THAT is the mission.
