Kairo News sources have confirmed that the Gambia’s Minister of Transport and Infrastructure is still admitted at Madid hospital. This contradicts an earlier report published on the pro-government Daily Observer that Bala Garba Jahumpa was released from hospital.
Mr. Jahumpa was airlifted to Spain for further medical treatment last month after his car was involved in an auto crash. Jahumpa, who was on a country-wide tour with President Yahya Jammeh, was reported to have fractures in his backbone. Jammeh’s annual meet the people’s tour has been punctuated with fatal accidents, this year being no exception as evidenced by the knocking to death of a Sandu Misera by a vehicle on tour with Mr. Jammeh.
“I can confirm that Balla Garba Jahumpa is still in hospital,” our source insisted. “Mr. Jahumpa had been in a coma for more than 24 hours after the accident. He opened his eyes and started talking at the hospital,” our sources said, adding he is recovering even though it will take some time before he fully recovers. “It is not true that Balla Jahumpa is released from hospital,”our source confirmed, questioning why the Daily Observer would jump to conclusion on what is not true. “It’s the usual propaganda the Observer has been known for.”
The statement that Bala was in comma for two hours is not true, and that he was uplifted to Spain was an overstatement. Bala walk to board the flight together with Maimuna Jahumpa and P.S. Macky Taal as escort. I call him in Spain on his gamtel # and talk to him. I don’t who your source is, but the story need to be retracti. We are in th struggle together.
Please, tell your story to the marines. What the heck is Balla doing in Madrid hospital if he walked into the plane by himself? That didn’t add up.
Mr. editor, why don ‘t you thrash this so-called Seedy Jarju? I bet he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Seedy, stop the cover up!
Folks leave Seedy to express his false opinion. That’s beauty of democracy.
I adore this forum but I hate to see detractors there.
I have contributed more than any of you in this struggle, and wrote more than three hundred times on the struggle from Gambia L to the present on line media. I truely believe that my statement is the truth and jotting else but the truth. Call me a Wolof fine, I personally can swear to the Quran that you are one of those from that tribe that put us in this shit in the first place. Check the so call “meet the people tour” and tell me who are those behind Jammeh. I am not suprise to be label a Wolof on KairoNews.
Astou called you a Wolf not a Wollof. LMAO. You are the one invoking tribe in the conversation.
A wolf in sheep’s clothing not a Wollof
Seedy jarju let me tell you that we the mandinkas are proud of who we are and nothing more or less and if you can’t understand simple writings I would suggest you look for a translator. Now bullying of mandinkas must stop. If one mandinka expresses his views, it is perceive as tribalist whilst that of a Wollof is regarded as his personal views. A classic example is when lamin darboe expresses his views about cordeg. Ousainou Mbenga and musa jeng just jump and try to lecture us about tribalism. Duga is Wollof organisation and cordeg as well. I stand by my points period.
HOW CAN COMMENT BELOW BE ANALYSED, TRANSLATED & DERAILED INTO BULLYING, TRIBALISM DIATRIBE OR STUPID ONSLAUGHT TO SEEDY JARJU?

SHAME ON CYBER BULLIES & DANGEROUS ELEMENTS OF GAMBIAN COMMUNITY; “FOR THE GAMBIA OUR HOMELAND”!
PROUD TO BE “GAMBIAN”. INSPIRED BY “THE SUPREME EXCELLENT GAMBIA NATIONAL ANTHEM”.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS “TRIBALISM” DECEASE WITH ALL YOUR EDUCATION!
THIS IS MY DNA:
MY GREAT GRAND MUM = DIBBA = MANDINKA “DIBBA CHAKU” OK
MY GREAT GRAND FATHER =SEY= TUKULOR OK
MY MUM =SEY=TUKULOR OK
MY DAD = NJIE = WOLLOF OK
MYSELF = NJIE =WOLLOF, TUKULOR OR MANDINKA? WHICH CLAN, TRIBE OR WHERE DO I BELONG AS A “GAMBIAN CITIZEN”?
Dawda, the many like you, mostly SILENT, give hope to The Gambia.
Truth to be told, the topic was about Balla Garba Jarhumpa, but it went way out of line to tribalism. This shows how deeply divided our country is since Yaya Jammeh started spewing his tribal sentiments. I really fear for my country for the aftermath of Yaya Jammeh . I’ve witnessed the 1981 attempted coup and after Jammeh will 1981 will be a Boy Scout jamboree if we don’t mind.
