The University of The Gambia in a mess

The University of The Gambia is in a mess, according to our sources in Banjul.  Professor Muhammadou O. Kah, Vice Chancellor of the University has not been seen since 30th December 2014.

Apart from the apparent leadership vacuum created by Professor Kah's unexplained absence, the School of Journalism has not been operational because of lack of lecturers which is not surprising, given the nature of regime of Yaya Jammeh that provides little or no room for academic freedom.  Lecturers are not allowed, and neither are students encouraged, to think freely.

We will continue to inquire about the whereabouts of Professor M.O.Kah.  We hope he's safe.
