The embattled Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brikama Area Council, Modou Jonga, and his Financial Director (FD), Alagie Jeng, have been redeployed to Banjul City Council and Mansakonko Area Council effective 1st February 2024.

“I write to draw your attention to a recently conducted meeting of the Local Government Service Commission in which decisions were taken. Thus, I write to convey the decision of the Local Government Service Commission to effect the following transfers effective 1st February 2024.” a press statement issued today by the Local Government Service Commission said.

The release said Momodou Jonga, the current CEO of Brikama Area Council, has been transferred to Banjul City Council. At the same time, his finance director, Alagie Jeng, was redeployed to Mansakonko Area Council.

The Local Government Service Commission also disclosed the redeployment of two other CEOs: Seedy K. Touray, CEO of Banjul City Council, to Mansakonko Area Council, and Mustapha Batchilly from Banjul City Council to Mansakonko Area Council.

The release also highlighted the redeployment of Momodou Camara, the Finance Director of Banjul City Council, to Brikama Area Council and Sheriff Njie, the Finance Director of Kanifing Municipal Council, to Banjul City Council.

Reacting to the deployment of the CEO and Finance Director of Brikama Area Council, Momodou Charteh Gibba, Chairman of the Establishment Committee of Brikama Area Council, said the duo’s transfer was part of the Council’s latest resolution.
He added that the transfers do not mean the end of wrangling between BAC and CEO Momodou Jonga and Finance Director Alagie Jeng, who have been accused of corrupt practices.

“We have passed about three resolutions, and in our final resolution, we requested their remo, and this demand has been met, but that is not the end of our story. We will pursue the matter to another level to make sure that if they are found wanting of any further embezzlement, even as we perceived, they have to take their responsibilities to pay it, and that’s going to be another battle again,” Momodou Charreh Gibba, Chairman Establishment Committee, Brikama Area Council told TAT.

He added, “We passed a resolution authorizing the Chairman to seek legal advice to take the Service Commission to Court to act on this matter, and thank God, today they met our demand. Our case is to ensure that we pursue legal actions to ensure they are held responsible for all the perceived embezzlement of monies they have messed up at the Brikama Area Council; this will be our next move. “
