United Democratic Party (UDP)’s Campaign Manager, Momodou Sabally, who was released yesterday after spending ten days under police detention without charged says his arrest was politically motivated.
“I believe my arrest was politically motivated and most people believe that. Because I am one of the loudest voices in the country. The biggest critic of this government,” Sabally told BBC on Friday after his release.
“The last time I had an interview on BBC news day about the fuel prices situation in this country, a supporter of the NPP released an audio to say that I should be detained. Because why should BBC talk to me, am not in government. That audio is out there in the open,”
Asked Whether he will continue to criticize president Adama Barrow’s government, he said;
“I will continue to exercise my Democratic fundamental human rights of Free speech. I will continue to criticize this government. I will continue to hold them accountable, and I will continue to speak to the media, local and international to make sure that we have a better Gambia as dreamed, of fighting for. So that we have freedom, we have peace, and progress in this country. That is not going to change,”
