A RENOUN RELIGIOUS SCHOLAR AND PROPRIETOR TO RASHEED QURANIC SCHOOL DISMISSED KANDEH’S ALLEGATIONS AS BASELESS AND UNFOUNDED.
A renoun religious scholar and proprietor of Rasheed Quranic Boarding School at Youna village in the West coast region Imam Demba Jallow has dismissed Mama Kandeh’s allegations as baseless and unfounded.Mama Kandeh is the Secretary general and the leader of the main opposition party,GDC.
Imam Demba Jallow made this remarks today in an interview with this medium. The imam is responding to Kandeh’s recent allegations that the Supreme Islamic Council and the Banjul Muslims Elders are reportedly on a country wide tour to purportedly to engage citizens on extending President Barrow’s term to 5 years contrary to 3 years Jotna campaigners who wants the president to step down as per MOU. Imam Demba Jallow is also the executive secretary of the Gambia Supreme Islamic Council but he was quick to add that he’s not speaking on behalf of the council.
Kandeh in a recent press conference warned against embarking on such missions as such a mission he said must be regarded as an enemy of the state and warns Muslim Leaders Against Meddling In Politics.
However, at a press conference convened upon their return, the imam ratib of Banjul Cherno Alieu Mass Kah denied they were ever on a political mission and said that the annual event aimed at discussing peace and stability of the nation adding that it only through peace that national development can be achieved.
Imam Demba Jallow further stated that Gambian politics is very interesting because even party leaders wil notl be ashame to lie to their followers. I was expecting the GDC leader to act like PDOIS leaders who always have evidence of any thing that they are saying. Mama kandeh, is like a child in nursery school, that is why Gambian should be very careful of whom they are going to entrust their affairs.
Kandeh should have fine out to know the reality rather than picking information from the social media but is not a surprise to thoes who knows him.
This is how when money loubnders behave when ever they feel secured infact even if it is true did he has the right to deny any one excercising his constitutional rights and you excercising yours ohh this is why his party loose always key individual is because of immaturity yaarafang he said.
Imam Jallow revealed that the Imams were not sent by the President as alleged but this is an annual event that the Muslim leaders are embarked on to strengthen peace and stability among the faithfuls. He also asserted that the trip has nothing to do with the three years jotna is just that this year’s topic is about peace not three years at all, and I don’t think it will be sensible to give ten millions or sour for only four days nation wide tour I don’t think the government will allow that to happen ,if there is an allawance for them that will not be more than three to five thousand dalasis each Imam said.
The Imam recall that in 2017 the government promise to give five million for the religious activities in the Gambia which they failed to do, the reason is best known to them and also in 2019 they made the same promise still nothing. Let people know the council has been doing it’s activities without any fund from the government, the government is not given a single dalasi to the council, the elders themselves contribute to pay staff salaries and to help needy families etc.
This from my own side am not speaking on behalf of the council
