    Op-ed: Jammeh’s Amnesty Must Begin at Home (charity ....

    Lawyer Ousainu Darboe 50th Golden Jubilee Message

      18 February 1965 saw the Union Jack lowered and the Gambian flag raised. We became a nation that is called The Gambia. Britain did not believe that Gambia will survive as a nation.
