Additional information : With regret, the second portion of this show was not recorded. We thought it was being recorded but it was on pause. This was a mistake on our side to which we sincerely apologise for. Even worst, the second part was when we had a detailed interview with Sukai Dahaba (X) where she gave a detailed account regarding her traumer in the hands of Yayah Jammeh's enablers when she was captured as part of the 9th May 2016 demonstrators in The Gambia. In that portion she also mentioned some of Jammeh's enablers. We apologise for this error on our part and will endeavour our utmost to bring Sukai Dahaba on the show again for a more detailed interview. In the meantime, you can check out all our audio interviews with Sukai by scrolling through our categories and selecting Sukai's own category titled : "Sukai Dahaba (X) : Leader of the Kaalama Revolution". Also check out this interview she did with Fatu Camara of the Fatu Network published in JollofNews (see below) :

We wish Omar's brother and all those injured a speedy recover, and would like to assure our listeners that we will try and get Omar Thiam another day.
