A Senegalese National Assembly Member Oumar Cisse Souvane says a majority of people in his community in Cassamance have Gambian Identity Cards; saying it is very easy to get the Gambian document.
“I am from Cassamance, we are at the Gambian border. Our entire community have the Gambian Identity card. The Gambian ID card is very easy to get during their electoral process. You just bring two witnesses and if they know them, they prepare an ID card for you. We should have special ID cards for our citizens living along the border, if not all of us will be Gambians. I will list some of our communities that have majority Gambian ID cards. Kanjalon, Kanjon Mangana, Gonani, Njamalachel, Njamakuta, Bona, Jaakunda etc,” he said.
The Gambian opposition have previously complain that non-Gambians have voted during the past presidential election, the ruling party however always deny the allegations.
