THE REJECTION OF THE DRAFT CONSTITUTION WAS A CONSPIRACY

By Fatou Touray

The Spokesperson Tamba J.Y. Camara of PATRIOT,  an association formed by Gambians since the rejection of the 2020 Draft Constitution express their disappointment to Government over the week end.

He expressed their disappointment to the Government of the Gambia over the rejection of the Draft constitution.

“We are here today as a start  of a protest to show to the Government of the Gambia that Gambians will continue to protest in many forms until they ceased disrespecting our voice and plights” Camara queried.

The resources that were put into the 2020 Draft Constitution could have been used in other sectors such as Education, Health, Road Infrastructures, and Telecommunication etc.

“This Government was instituted by majority of Gambians in 2016 on the principles of good Governance democracy, accountability and transparency and these principles gave birth to Janneh Commissions, Truth Reconciliation and Reparation Commission (TRRC), National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the Constitutional Review commission (CRC).He said

He further said the 1997 Constitution has many bad laws which have no place in modern democracy and society.

Camara said the reason for the rejection of the Draft Constitution is nothing but to put fear on the masses, deprived them of their basic human rights and to make room for self-perpetuating rule over the people against the will to promote professional misconduct in our working sectors and corruption.
