The people of Kanilai Monday, June 5 gathered at The Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) in Banjul demanding the body of Haruna Jammeh for burial at the village.
Upon arrival at the hospital, credible sources informed this medium that they were told to check in again tomorrow Tuesday as the doctor who is expected to conduct the autopsy is ill and couldn’t make it to work.
