“Mr Alhaji Kurang, made a number of unsubstantiated allegations against Counsel Amie Bensouda,” Minister Tambadou told a new conference in Banjul on Monday. “Based on information available to me, Mr Kurang acted beyond the confines of his administrative authority which was principally to execute the orders of the Commission and not to question the wisdom or motivations underpinning those orders. As a result of his actions, and in consultation with the Commission, Mr Kurang’s position as Secretary to the Commission has now become untenable under the circumstances. We wish to thank him for his service and wish him luck in his future endeavours.”
The Minister would not go into details of what exactly Mr. Kurang did. However, his (Kurang’s) firing resulted after social media had been infiltrated with an article written by a concerned citizen, questioning the authority of the Commission’s Lawyer Amie Bensouda. The article also accused Mrs. Bensouda of favouritism.
