Gambia @ 41

1965 Independence event …Photo Courtesy of fatoumaria

It is 41years today since the Gambia attained independence from British colonial rule. Throughout the years she has seen the good, the bad and the ugly side of her children. From the corrupt three decade rule of Fafa Jawara to the corrupt and dictatorial tyranny of Yahya Jammeh. But I will reserve my seething outrage for another day. Today, we celebrate with you dear old Gambia. And here is an anthem composed to celebrate what you can be and will be in the not too distant future.

Gambia National Anthem

The Gambian community in Michigan is holding a fundraising dinner for the occasion. The proceeds will be use to transport medical supplies to the Gambia. Click here to read the program of events
