I Stand With Director General, Ebrima Sillah of GRTS!

Dear Mr. Sillah,

It gives me a great pleasure to extend my warmest congratulations to you on your recent action against the kerr fatou show program on GRTS.

The anchors of the Kerr Fatu Show are very irresponsible, unprofessional, unethical and unscrupulous as most of the theme of their programs are to inculcate hate among us the Gambians. I was very flag basted, disappointed, depressed beyond all human survival upon listening to their episode 3  tribalism in The Gambia ( During the show they lambast, attacked the noble Jola tribe beyond all human race as far beyond Pluto. As if the Jola’s are the only tribe in The Gambia.

The aforesaid immorality episode was a hateful fabrication of intolerable huge lies, extreme dislike, deep-rooted academic and intellectual suicide, mathematically calculated wrongly and intended to portray the noble Jola tribe in bad light, and to maliciously destroy the dignity and impeccable integrity, which the Jola tribe is known for centuries ago.

Hate speech and tribalism will not solve a problem. It is only through dialogue; reasoning and critical thinking can help remedy the situation

It is arguable that the negative effects of tribalism permeate all African countries. Millions have been killed, maimed or displaced in civil wars in sub-Sahara Africa over the past 50 years, mostly because of tribal agitation. Most of us are living witnesses to the carnage that occurred in Rwanda and is still going on in Somalia. These countries have fallen into the abyss mainly because of tribalism.

Sir as a leader you should be able to take firm decision that might bring peace. Don’t waste any iota of time to erase any program from the list that would serve as a threat to our peace and the newly born democracy.

Sir, as a CEO you have done a remarkable work and have submitted outstanding piece of works. Your contribution to the GRTS has been always glorified. Your appointment as MD deserves a proud recognition and hence a liable responsibility for this position. Under your guidance, GRTS have witnessed a rising curve in terms of worldwide coverage. 

Your unending ability to motivate fellow mates will continue to make your schemes and tasks more effective. Your love for journalism has certainly paid you off with employment. Certainly your willingness to volunteer your time and effort, as well as express your opinions, has contributed to your being selected for the post too.

I feel proud to have you as a MD of our venture. Wishing you continued success.
