Mpatir Ayif (Exchanging ideas) : Is President Adama Barrow fit lead lead? (Saturday, 28th January 2017)

January 29, 2017

Mpatir Ayif (to exchanging ideas) is an informal but educational open phone-in, e-mail and text-in discussion show where you (the listener) participate by asking and answering questions set by other listeners. Find out the answers to questions you always wanted to know. For example have you always wanted to know what our ancestors used to use in order to build their homes before the advent of cement? What do the colours of the Senegalese flag represent? What does the flag of Siin symbolises? What is the meaning and etymology of the words: Seereer, Saafi, Ndut, Sili, Noon or Laalaa or Ñoominka? Etc.

On this show, anything goes. You set the questions and answer them. No question is stupid. If it is important to you it is important to us. On this first ever Mpatir Ayif show, Tamsier Joof, joined by Laity Sene, Demba Sene and Moussoukoro Sidibé asks whether President Adama Barrow fit to lead The Gambia? Tamsier's question sparked controversy with his colleague Laity Sene. Whose team are you on?
