Can I join?

I lived in Basse in 1974/75 when my father served as a doctor at Ahmadiyya clinic. I studied in St George's primary school, and passed my common entrance exam there. Mr Francis Jaw and Dick Foran were my teacher then. I had the chance to revisit Basse in 2013; although was unable to know about Mr Jaw but met some of the staff at St. George's, and was able to meet the honorable Governor at his residence.
I wish to reconnect and contribute in the areas of education and heathcare of the people of Basse.

Best wishes for all Basse,

Azhar

Garawol Woman Commits Suicide (See Basse News Section)

It is a very sad and horrible story. The trajectory of crimes in the Basse area is very alarming.

Now the question is what is our leadership going to do to stanch the bleed we in URR are encountering? I challenge our leadership such as our honorable Basse MP and, our own, the honorable Governor Omar Ceesay who are members of Friends of Basse to try and do something about this. We cannot idly let serious societal problems like this just vanish in the air and wait for another incident to happen and keep on calling it accidental. This is a problem and need immediate attention. I have heard and read so many horrific stories like this emanating from URR that are mind numbing to me. No interventions have been put forward that I know of. All I hear is the accused are facing the judiciary system for their wrong doing. This reactive intervention approach is not helpful in my opinion. We have to be proactive by putting in measures in preventing another live to be taken away from us.

Sorry for my venting. I just could not "shut up" without commenting and live a normal life.

Re: Garawol Woman Commits Suicide (See Basse News Section)

Bakary,

You are right. We have seen many tragedies like this one come out of our beloved URR and reported here at this Bantaba. My heart aches whenever I read stories like this.

Something is not going right for some of our people.

Tackling tragedies like this needs us, the neighborhood, the community, and certainly the state (both the regional and national levels) to bring its weight to bear on social problems like this. A holistic approach is needed. Some massive government intervention is needed such as: Peer and group counselling, family life education, a heart-to-heart kind of dialogue among our people. But we need our government to lead on this. Better yet, we need our government to first recognize there is a problem here. Relying on legal solutions is necessary but not enough. Far from it.

Why are many Gambians Dying Young?

Bakary,
Is there a specific measurement on the rice you can recommend . Whilst in China last year I noticed that the Chinese ate rice three times a day but they were using a specific cup for their personal portions. They even had it for breakfast, of course with a lot of different vegetables too. Also what is your advise about us Gambians with spicy food, back in the days we used to cook food with spicies(hot pepper) on the side, nowadays the pepper is cooked with the food leaving people like me who cannot handle spicy food with no option. Any benefits?

Re: Why are many Gambians Dying Young?

Mr. Touray,
It is a little bit hard to know exactly the quantity of rice to put in the pot and make sure one is not eating too much. I believe we should all watch what we put on the plate after the rice is cooked. An adult consuming three scoops of cooked rice and filling up with vegetables, fruits and water is the way to go.
Spicy foods have been credited for helping with weight gain, cancer prevention, lowering bad cholesterol, providing essential minerals, lowering blood pressure, etc. My only advice is, to eat spicy foods with moderation and avoid spicy foods when one has gastric ulcer problems.

Thank you!
