A little boy of less than 13 years was murdered in cool blood and the body thrown in an uncompleted building within a residential area like Brikama ba, without no trace of the murders just last Friday. Another person was killed and dumped in an abandon vehicles at Bakoteh and yet no trace of the killers.
Again there were series of robberies, that affected some local banks, and shops within the jurisdiction of the Gambia and many of those criminals go scot free. Our lives are no longer safe and secured in our homes, so are our properties, are also not safe and secured. This brood day light robberies and other criminal activities which are left unaddressed are the concern of the Gambian citizens.
What Gambians needed more, now is for the government to tighten the security. The criminals are taking the advantage of the curfew, and the frequent power outs as there are less movement of people, and there are virtually no correspondence security presences on our streets.
We need more men and women of our security persons on the streets, since people are indoors in respect to the 10pm to 5am curfew. What is our security council which is chaired by Her Excellency Vice President doing in the midst of all these killing s and robberies?
Our streets from today should see a difference, if only the lives of the people residing in the Gambia matters to the government of the day.
No one will say we do not have the security strength to provide effective security of people and their properties. Added to our own security strength the country is blessed with the ECOMIG and some Senegalese security that are not under the ECOMG.
But interestingly the Gambia is contributing to the welfare of these foreign troops on our soil, either directly or indirectly. This plus our own police force and the soldiers; we cannot see why we can’t be provided with enough security for the people of Gambia.
