The Minister for Information, Demba Ali Jawo who also doubles as the spokesperson for The Gambia Government has confirmed to The Fatu Network that the Government is no longer going ahead with The Multimedia Gateway International (MGI) deal.
The deal was expected to give MGI, a Swiss-based company the exclusive management of Gamtel’s International Voice Gateway.
The issue brought mixed reactions among Gambians with many saying that since MGI is facing the Janneh Commission, any contract with them should wait until the commission finalizes its findings.
Meanwhile, the managing director of GAMTEL, Sulayman Suso has been asked to go on leave while an inquiry is open to investigate the activities of the company.
Information reaching The Fatu Network has confirmed that the Government is not happy with the amount of money coming in from GAMTEL. Suso is also said to be blamed for not giving the correct technical advice to the executive.
