In what can be described as another important moment between the two municipalities, the children of the workers of Rufisque Municipality in Senegal, paid homage, on Monday, to Yankuba Colley, the mayor of Kanifing Municipal Council.
As a long tradition of fostering the cordial relationship existing between the two cities, the initiative is deeply rooted in the common values shared by The Gambia and Senegal.
In his welcome remarks, Mayor Colley expressed delight with the visit, noting that the two countries are bound together by a common history.
Advising the children to desist from certain social vices and be respectful and obedient, he urged the group leaders to take great care of the children and promised to visit them at their camp.
For his part, Yusupha Sanyang, the deputy mayor of KMC, gave an insight on how the municipality generates funds and the budgetary structure for the council’s activities. He also advised the children to be obedient and respect.
Amadou Tambedou, the head of the delegation, expressed delight and satisfaction at the hospitality accorded to them by KMC.
He then noted that their stay in The Gambia has been exceptionally memorable. Other speakers at the meeting included Modou Jallow, who expressed similar sentiments.
