Former State House chief driver, Mansa Sumareh has confirmed to Kerr Fatou that he has intention to contest for Brikama Area Council (BAC) chairmanship in the 2023 local government election.
“Yes I want to contest under NPP ticket. But if they did not select me, I will go for independent,” he said when asked about it.
Mansa Sumareh and one Ebrima JS Sanneh are currently being prosecuted.
They are charged with eight counts of criminal offences.
The prosecution alleged that Sumareh and colleague have conspired amongst themselves in 2019 by false and fraudulent representation to get one Mr Abdoulie Bah (permanent secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the time) to sign and forged a letter of approval from the office of the President for the issuance of a diplomatic passport to one Bakary Susso.
