Somita, Ndemban reconcile

Daily Observer: "Following the 72 hours presidential ultimatum to the people of Somita and Ndemban villages in West Coast Region, relations between the two villages have normalised after mediation efforts by a team tasked to settle their eight-year feud by the Gambian leader.

It would be recalled that His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Yahya Jammeh during one of the meetings at the recently concluded ‘Dialogue with the people’s tour’ gave the two villages a 72-hour ultimatum to bury the hatchet.

The Daily Observer met the governor of WCR, Alhaji Lamin Sanneh who led the mediation team that helped resolve the feud. He confirmed that both villages heeded the ultimatum and accepted the team tasked to mediate between them."
