The late Pa Modou Faal

The Kerr Mama sports committee will organize a football tournament to celebrate the legacy of late Journalist Pa Modou Faal, who died earlier this year in a car crash.

PM Faal, as he is fondly called, is an ardent football lover who promotes sports as a way of unifying people. Mr. Faal was a veteran in sports reporting apart from his health reporting.

Baboucarr Jallow, a friend of Pa and Gambian International US Based referee who sponsored the tournament, told Alkamba Times sports:
” Our beloved brother and friend, the late Pa Modou Faal, was a great family man, husband/father, and friend to all. In addition, he was a veteran journalist in sports and health and the kindest man you could ever see’.

The tournament will kick off on August 20th at 4:30 pm at the Alhagie Gabbi Sosseh mini stadium in Kerr Mama between Mass-Sosseh of Kerr Mama vs. German Boys of Fass Omar Saho.

In January 2022, Journalist Pa Modou Faal, a veteran of over 20 years, Musa Ndow, formerly of the Daily Observer, Kawsu Bayo, a health worker, all died after the car they were traveling in crashed in Jiffin, the first settlement in the Jarra area.
