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.
