Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Some members of the Gambia Armed Forces (GAF), over the weekend embarked on a massive clean-up exercise, locally known as 'Set- Settal' within the premises of Fajara Barracks, in Bakau.
The exercise, initiated by President Yahya Jammeh, Commander-in-Chief of the Gambia Armed Forces (GAF), was meant to pave the way for the eradication of malaria cases in the country.
Speaking at the clean-up exercise, Captain Modou Lamin Bojang, Commander of the Fajara Barracks, described the initiative as part of the normal routines in Fajara Barracks.
According to him, GAF was also very instrumental in making the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital Sanitorium a good place to be.
For Captain Wally Nyang, ''the exercise is very unique and important not only in the Army, but it is a national issue, initiated by President Jammeh who put health as his first priority".
He commended the men and women of the Gambia Armed Forces for their commitment to national activities.
Other speakers included WO2 Modou Demba, Regimental Sergeant Major of Fajara Barracks.
