The Church has been receiving stolen money from the President of The Gambia!
It is about time we revealed the activity of the CHURCH in The Gambia. For a long time, many thought that it was only the Supreme Islamic Council that has been benefiting from embezzled money from the national coffers. What was not known is the CHURCH behind closed doors, from public view. For many years the church in The Gambia has been receiving gifts from the President in many forms: cows, rice and CASH and sometimes, on personal notes to some Christian religious leaders, including the Chairperson of The Gambia Christian Council, Most Reverend Hannah Faal Heine.
What the Church and some members of the religious leaders failed to realize is that, each time they are called into the State House, eyes are on them and what they received is also recorded by some staffers who work in State House. One day, Gambians will be gravely stunned at how much the Church in The Gambia has been benefiting from stolen money, yet they pretended to be Holy men of God. I hope and pray that we all live to witness this day.
It’s very disheartening that, the Church that should have stood by oppressed Gambians is, in fact, participating in sharing the money of the poor. The Church is corrupt and this will be proven one day. No Church should be engaging in this type of behavior. This is very sad. Where is Jesus Christ? Now people will understand why the Church will never challenge the idea of [President Jammeh’s proclaimed] Islamic State. How would you in the wake of cash flow?
