Fatou Kinneh Joof (Mrs.)
Principal private secretary
On behalf of Alhagie Ismaila Sambou, Alhagie Omar Demba (the younger brother of the decease), Buba Demba (the eldest of the decease) and the entire family of the late Alhagie Malanding Demba of Sifoe Village wish to extend to you a big thank you for the charity that you have given to them through Honourable Dr. Tangara, Honourable Lamin Kaba Bajo and Honourable Abdoue Colley on the demise of the late Alhagie Malanding Demba of Sifoe village.
The amount of one hundred thousand dalasis (D100, 000. 00) would go a long way in assisting the family of the late Alhagie Malanding Demba. The entire family really has the knowledge and understanding that you really shared this sad moment with us, as the late beloved father really had a deep love for you, your family and the entire Gambian people.
Your Excellency, it is worthy to relate to you that just two (2) days before his death our beloved father had difficulty to speaks loudly, but miraculously he was repeatedly saying your name and that of Dr. Tangara with a deep smile to a point that everybody around him became happy thinking that he was recovering. We reckon during the period of his illness, he would lack appetite to eat anything except when your name is mentioned to him. There is no doubt that our beloved father really loved you and we stand to say that he still loves you in heaven.
Your Excellency, the entire Demba Kunda family wishes to inform you that, it is you (President Jammeh) who lost the father, but for us our father is you, for you are the eldest of Alhagie Malanding Demba. Therefore we are putting you in his position as a father, mentor, and advisor and all other parental roles. He really advised us to be steadfast behind you in all condition and we assured you of our unflinching supports and prayers at all time.
The entire family will observe his forty days prayers on the 7th of June 2012. Thank for your support and considerations throughout all times.
The entire family of the late
Alhagie Malanding Demba
