11th August, 2022

Press Release


I write on behalf of The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) to register our fervent sympathy over the loss of Gambia Armed Forces State Guards Battalions in a very fatal accident that has resulted to the loss of four (4) soldiers, who were traveling as part of the rear party of the Presidential convoy. We learned that this fatal accident took place today at Ndemban Village which its loss is immeasurable. 

The loss of these gallant soldiers is a tragic to this nation and we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and by extension to The Gambia Armed Forces for this unfortunate loss that has befallen on all of us as a nation.

The loss of able body men is heartbreaking and we are sending our profound condolences to their commander in Chief President Barrow for the passing of these young soldiers.   

While Ndedeh Bahoum survives the accident and currently battling with his life at Bwiam hospital we wish him a speedy recovery. I know there are no words that can ease your pain as families of the deceased but we pray to God the Almighty to forgive them for their shortcomings and grant them Jannatul Firdausi.


Hon. Mamma Kandeh

(GDC Party Leader and Secretary).
