Pa Kalifa Sanyang, the CEO of KMC, has refuted claims made in a report submitted to the authorities by the council’s then interim committee headed by Bakary Jammeh.
In the report which was leaked to online news-sites, the Jammeh Committee accused CEO Sanyang and his senior team of ineptitude and malfeasance and that both the staff and the institution were not fit for purpose.
This apparently warranted the Ministry of Regional Government to send Mr Sanyang and his director of finance on their statutory annual leave. However, the month-long leave ended but the duo has not been recalled to work.
Meanwhile, The Standard is privy to a long-read response letter sent to the authorities by Mr Sanyang. In it, he called the Bakary Jammeh committee report “grossly erroneous… replete with lies and distortions” and not a true reflection of the state of affairs at the KMC”. He accused the committee of engaging in a witch-hunt in broad daylight. Read the full letter on Pages 21 and 22.
