The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) has condemned what it called, the use of lethal force on unarmed Gambians during the recent Kanilai protest, calling it a dangerous nonstarter.
Speaking during a press conference at the Baobab Hotel on the position of the party in the recent incident, the party leader Mama Kandeh, expressed condolences to the family of the deceased Haruna Jatta. He said every Gambians life matters.
He called for restrain from all parties involved and reminded the use of community policing by the Gambian security forces who are prepared to handle civilian unrest or protest.
Mr Kandeh called on the authorities to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting with the aim of preventing a reoccurrence.
He used the opportunity to call on all Gambians to be law abiding and address issues in a civil manner while reminding government that rights and life of every Gambian will not be compromised.
