GDAG, CORDEG and others pay special tribute to the late Hon Bubacarr Baldeh



The Gambia Democratic Action Group (GDAG) wishes to extend its heartfelt condolence to the family, friends and associates of the late Bubacarr Michael Baldeh who died in Senegal on Wednesday July 9, 2014.  Our condolence also goes to our Gambian brothers and sisters in the struggle for this sad turn of events.

The membership of GDAG is shocked and saddened by the untimely demise of Mr. Baldeh and strongly condemned the actions and arrogance of the leadership of the Gambia Government for denying a bonafide son of our nation his constitutional and God given rights to be buried in his country of birth.

Bubacarr Baldeh, the face of Gambian exiles in Senegal, fought hard to restore democracy and rule of law in the Gambia. The Lion Politician, Humanist and Patriotic Gambian was called by his Lord at a time when his services were much more needed.
As Gambians continue to struggle to liberate our country from the clutches of tyranny, the fall of Bubacarr Baldeh should energize us to unite, love each other and be steadfast in our quest to bring back real democracy, the rule of law and justice in the Gambia. And as we mourn the demise of a worthy son of our motherland, we ask all Gambians to pause and reflect on the life and legacy of Bubacarr Michael Baldeh.

We pray that Allah the Almighty forgive the sins of Bubacarr Baldeh and reward him Janatul Firdaus.

We thank you.

The Committee for the Restoration of Democracy (CORDEG) mourns the untimely passing of our comrade Hon. Bubacar  Baldeh. Hon. Baldeh was an illustrious son of the Gambia who died fighting tyranny until his last breath. He inspired many by his courage, his unflinching love of country and family. To his family, friends and compatriots, we send our deepest condolences and pray for his soul and for Allah to shower him with his mercies.
CORDEG condemns Yahya Jammeh and his government for denying Hon. Baldeh burial in his hometown of Basse. This denial is an affront to Gambian cultural sensibilities, and was deplorable and ungodly for a son of The Gambia who deserved nothing less than a state funeral.
CORDEG urges all Gambians to derive inspiration from Hon. Baldeh’s life of service to our nation and struggle against tyranny. Hon. Baldeh’s life must continue to inspire all progressive forces for change in The Gambia to never give up, as victory is in sight.
Rest in peace comrade Baldeh
And God Bless the Gambia
