BARROW AND HIS DISCIPLES COURTS APRC TO THE DETRIMENT OF GAMBIAN???
Angry APRC militants manhandled a TFN cameraman, together with an RFI journalist. To my utter surprise, Government spokesperson Ebrima Sankareh apologized and empathized with the RFI reporter while blatantly ignoring to mention that a Fatu Network staff was also attacked BY APRC MILITANTS!!
Forget the part where a foreign journalist received empathy while a fellow Gambian was INTENTIONALLY SIDELINED. I see this as nothing but Mr. Sankareh’s PETTY and disingenuous way of showing his hatred for Fatu Network – lets call it what it is!!! We all know he has his little war with the way TFN reports the news. His behavior mimics the Jammeh era style of “If they are reporting news unfavorable to the government, stay away from them so you can keep your job.” Well, Mr. Sankareh, it is time to call you out! Shame on you for allowing your damn ego to cloud your judgment!!! Is the international reporter more valuable than your own??? Or is this your way of appeasing APRC because you don’t dare go after them??? If this was any other political party, you would have mentioned their name in your bogus communique but once again, it is the network you hate – TFN! While Senegalese media outlets and GPU stands in solidarity with TFN, you chose to ignore YOUR OWN. Sankareh, you are incompetent!!!
Ebrima Sillah, you are a journalist who was attacked by Yahya Jammeh, thus sending you into exile. Knowing how valuable Fatu Network was to you and others during the struggle, I would think that while Sankareh chooses to be petty, YOU OF ALL PEOPLE would have advised him to do the right thing. What a shame!
