A former high ranking military officer has confidently stated that his hands are clean.
Lt. Colonel Pa Modou Ann’s name has never been linked to any atrocity or brutality in the Gambia. The former military administrator has been admired for his high level of professionalism, discipline and willingness to work with all while in uniform.
Mr. Ann, who lives in Minnesota in the United States, told Kairo Radio’s Talking Point that “my hands are absolutely clean. I don’t have Gambian blood on my hands; I can raise my hands and say with confidence that I have never killed, offended or insulted my fellow Gambian while in uniform. That is not who I am.”
Lt. Colonel Ann was talking to Mohammed Lamin Sillah, the anchor of Talking Point on Sunday. Mr. Sillah’s question was preceded by his belief that “he who seeks justice must come with clean hands.”
Mr. Ann said he has always believed in justice, fairness and professionalism. “That is what I have exercised throughout and still continue to exercise because those are the fundamental values, principles, morality and faith that shape my life.”
Lt. Colonel Ann’s full interview with Mr. Sillah will be relayed on Kairo Radio on Wednesday.
if all these so call soldiers are like you ,Gambians will not suffer in the hands of this tyrant .Keep it up.
Can Lt. Colonel Ann shed light on the Court Marshal of Lt. Sanna Sabaly and Co., when they (Sanna and Co) were alleged to have attempted a coup against the AFPRC regime?
THIS IS ONE MAN I KNOW TO BE VERY TRUTHFUL AND RESPECTABLE. PA ANN HANDS ARE ALWAYS CLEAN. AS THE WOLOF SAID IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT SOMEONE YOU SHOULD ASKED HIS NEIGHBORS.
Why don’t you ask the guy serious questions and we don’t need all these guidelines,they are general and basic knowledge, ask him what needs to be done right now and what he thinks about that.This is the first time I listen to your radio, definitely is not encouraging, you are letting him waste our time on things that don’t matter to us Gambians, I wish I can call you guys to stop waffling about basic things when we have so much to deal with.
That’s what a good citizens should behave because the day u took an oath, as in the constitutions, you will defend the country by all means. So if you put your hands in dustbin, it means that u betray the country. See what those bandits did. They stole the power from a democratic elected government; a government by the peoples, of the peoples and for the peoples.
I have served under Ann as a young Officer. what i loved most about him was, he’s a principled officer who expect such from all those serving under him.
