Death again waging its crusade to fetch people and keep them away from the rest of their families.What doubts me most is deathś ability to pull one out from his family in the midst of oneś children,in the midst of oneś friends,in the midst of one´s wives and in the midst of oneś well wishers,death would come and do its job.People would hide from death,people would travel wide and afar to escape death only to be fetched by death at the end. People would empty their purses and bank accounts only to be hit by death.Kemo hailed from Kisi-Kisi Village,but spent most of his time in Basse,he had engaged into so many businesses,he had registered an unimaginable amount of successes.

He operated so many shops,selling cement,building materials,he also operated last some petrol stations whereby a good number of youths were employed and for anything that earned them some income to take care of their families.As if the angels had communicated to him,he recently built a mosque in the petrol station he operated last.Kemo had also participated into youthś activities.

He contributed a lot in salvaging the plight of the youths.He made his political stand known only to him and stood by it,he never fought or argued about politics,what he felt was his duty was to cast his vote for the party he supports and goes on with his job.As gentle as he was,he calculated every step he made,he never attempted huge strides that would have led him into a ditch.When he was in gatherings,his presence was only felt when colleagues called his attention.

He spoke gently and softly when required,he spoke briefly on trivial issues,he spoke at length when issues were grave and needed immediate actions.Kemo was also so sensitive to the sufferings of others,so it had ever warranted him to sacrifice all that he had just to make others not left out in circles of life.

From the bottom of my heart , I sincerely extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of the Dibassy,his wives,children and friends,may his gentle soul rest perfectly in peace.



May Allah grant him Jannah. Ameen. My prayers go out to his family and community. May Allah replace their loss with some blessings.


Basse Library Fundraiser

Happy holidays to everyone! Let me take this opportunity to remind you about the ongoing fundraising drive for the "Library Project". The latest updates indicate that the first batch of computers shipped from Germany have arrived in the Gambia and the books sent from California will be arriving shortly. The second shipment of desktop computers have also left the USA heading for the Gambia. (see attached pictures)

The fundraising committee of the library project met recently to discuss a tentative budget and ways to raise funds for this noble project. One of the pain points discussed in this meeting was to rekindle the fundraising effort by reaching out to the natives of Basse and friends of Basse. Therefore, let me start by echoing the words of MB and ask all Basseans and friends of Basse to please donate towards the “Library Project”.

Please join us today and donate any amount you can, as no amount is small. We also welcome any fund raising initiatives you may have to make this project a success.

Thanks to all the donors and pledges. We hereby ask pledgers to start fulfilling their pledges and submit donations in the designated FOB account in their area.

As always, please feel free to contact any of the executive members listed on our website ( for help sending in your pledges and donations.

Thank you all in advance and we look forward to hearing from you all.
