The leader of the United Democratic Party, Lawyer ANM Ousainu Darboe has dispelled rumors of his death after rumors spread by some political elements reported news of his demise on Wednesday.
Darboe, who is running as the main contender to Incumbent President Barrow said on Wednesday: ” It shows the people who did this and the party they belong to are bad. You don’t wish anything for someone other than death? You pray for people if you hear they are sick”.
Darboe told journalist Pa Modou Bojang in an audio monitored by Alkamba Times that: “They are just desperate but for a human being, regardless of whatever religion you are, this is not good behavior.
“Such people are not individuals with good behavior. These are bad citizens. But I am here and nothing has happened to me. I just returned from the African Princess Hotel where I had a meeting with former Ghanaians president John Mahama.”
“Well I tripped and we tried to get treatment at the Mansakonko Health Centre but there are no X-Ray facilities available there. So we had to debate whether to go to Bansang or come to Banjul and it was decided that even though facilities may be available in Bansang, they may not be sufficient and the doctor advised that I come to an area where I will have proper attention and that’s why I am here. If there was an X-Ray machine in Mansakonko then, there would be no need for me to come to Banjul,” Darboe told local media last week after rumors about his health spread like wildfire.
