The Secretary General and Leader of the Gambia Moral Congress (GMC), Ahmed Mai Fatty clears the air over the awarding of a Contract to SEMLEX for the production of national documents such as National Identification Cards. In the same vein, Ahmed Fatty who was onetime Minister of Interior also used the opportunity to throw more light on the killing of Haruna Jatta of Kanilai village in the Fonis.
Fatty was participating in a popular radio show anchored by Pa Modou Bojang of the Brikama Home digital FM. He described the killing of Jatta as very unfortunate but his ministry, as a former Minister is never and can never be responsible for failing to investigate circumstances surrounding the unfortunate killing of Jatta.
GMC Boss said Jatta was killed in a shootout, coming from soldiers who are under the Defence Minister and Commander of the Gambia National Army (GNA) , who he said in no order person but the President of the republic Adama Barrow at the time of the shooting and eventual killing of Jatta. “President Barrow should answer questions pertaining to the killing of Haruna Jatta by ECOMIG soldiers who are under his Command” Fatty said
Speaking on the awarding of contract to SEMLEX for the production of our national documents; Fatty said up to the time he left office sometimes in 2018 no contract was awarded to SEMLEX by his ministry.
Responding to allegations that he took bribes from SEMLEX and that was what has contributed to his discharge of duties as a State Minister. The GMC Leader described the allegations as baseless and unfounded as in the first place he did not award any contract to SEMLEX up to the time he left office. Ahmed Fatty said in a radio show that it is very clear that the SEMLEX contract was only given after he left office and replaced by another former Interior Minister called Mballow.
“My hands are clean and I challenged anyone who has proofs that I took any bribe from either SEMLEX or any other company” Fatty said
