He is unquestionably the most powerful Gambian mulatto in the country right now.

According to the IEC website: “He is a graduate of political science. He served the Commission firstly as Principal Registration Officer and then Director of Operations from 1996-2001.”

It was in 2006 when former president Yahya Jammeh selected him to be the IEC’s vice chairman.

Reports reaching What’s On-Gambia revealed that he recently opened a new hotel called Balafong, which is already attracting Dutch tourists.

Malleh is also the co-owner of Poco Loco Restaurant – one of the most frequented restaurants in the country.
